    This is fantastic! Lauren really nailed the internal struggle of a creative mom with her comic! Can’t wait to read more.

    I love this, Lauren! You absolutely nailed my feelings on “balancing” work and motherhood (including the flashback to high-school vows never to have kids.) <3

    Beautiful! I never stayed home with my son but can absolutely related to the dichotomy of being a creative, working person and wanting to be a supportive, loving mom. You can have both, you really can, but it does require shifts and compromises from both perspectives. But I see it this way: being creative MAKES me a better mom!
