Lauren Lodder from Mommy Owl reads her essay that was featured on The Mighty about almost losing her 1-year-old daughter to idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP).
Hi! I’m Lauren. I live in Texas with my husband and two young daughters, ages 2 and 4. Before becoming a work-at-home mom and a freelance writer, I taught writing and literature classes at the college level. I earned my BA from UC Berkeley and my MA from CSUF. My favorite part of this parenting gig is watching my babies become strong and opinionated young ladies. Writing about their various shenanigans gives me so much joy because kids are hilarious. In my downtime, I enjoy cuddling with my husband (sans children), reading science fiction books, and drinking bubbly champagne. You can find me blogging @ Mommyowl.com, on Facebook @ mommyowldotcom and on Twitter @Lhlodder.
