A little bit about me...

A black child was killed in my city, by
Hi internet, I'm Lauren...

Also known as Lauren Flynn Teacher Mom, Lorenzo, Lo, or Zozo (that last one only if you're my oldest son). ​I know it's a cliche, but I really do love long walks to the fridge. I also love raising kids who come from hard places, and teaching young adults who have multiple disabilities. I love reading, writing about my life, and authenticity on the internet. I'm a Mama through adoption to two boys, Eli and Juju, and have been a Mama through foster care to two more boys. I teach high school special education. My partner and I live in sin together with our two kiddos and our (my) annoying cat. Writing all of that out was kind of trippy for me because this life is everything I ever wanted and I can't believe that I get to live it!

This space was born because I freaking LOVE blogs, and it makes me sad to see them becoming less popular in the age of insta. Don't get me wrong, I love a good instagram caption, but I grew up reading about the stories of other women online through blogs. Women who were mothers, and badasses, just like I wanted to be. Those women inspired me, made me laugh, and let me learn from their mistakes. They showed me that I could do it, that my dreams could be real life, and if you're reading this, I want you to know that yours can, too. 

Something to say?
