Laura lives in Yorkshire, UK with her two teenage children.
When they were little (and definitely not taller than her) she used to blog avidly about the trials and tribulations of motherhood.
Laura is no stranger to all the joys small children can bring; sleepless nights, a random public meltdown or a spectacular poonami.
She fondly remembers the time her youngest child rolled across a supermarket carpark in a trolley while she was putting her eldest child in the car and the time her, then, three year old took up swearing at a church event.
Laura has worked for Your Baby Club, as a Social Media Manager, since 2014.
