Sarah Bunton-Lauer is side-splittingly funny. She’s a professional writer and an amazing mom to a 3 year old Max. She recognizes that when it comes to motherhood, sometimes you have to laugh or you will sob instead. Sarah writes for Romper and has been published all over the Internet and in print. We are thrilled she will join us on the LTYM: Charleston stage.
What is your name?
Where do you write, blog, are published?
I’m a staff writer for Romper, a site for a new generation of women figuring out what motherhood means to us. In addition to working for Romper, I’m a contributor for Bustle, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and was feature in Arianna Huffington’s latest book, The Sleep Revolution.
How did you find LTYM?
Through my fellow writers.
What is the craziest thing you remember saying to your children?
“Yes, Max, you’re right. You do walk better in mommy’s heels than I do, but I need you to take them off now please.”
If you are a blogger/writer, what is one of your favorite things you’ve ever written?
In a piece for Romper, I shared my deeply personal experience in, “The Stanford Rape Victim’s Letter Said What I Couldn’t.” https://www.romper.com/p/the-stanford-rape-victims-letter-said-what-i-couldnt-12054
What does motherhood mean to you?
Motherhood doesn’t mean you lose your personal identity. Motherhood means you’re adding a new chapter to the book of your life.

I’m very involved with community outreach and local government. Animal rights, homelessness, racial, gender, and LGBT equality are all causes that are near and dear to my heart.
