We think a sense of humor is essential for any parent—especially during that wild, wonderful, blow-out-filled first year—and today’s mama is all set in that department. Laura Lane was a successful journalist, writing for The New Yorker, ESPN, Esquire, Vanity Fair, and People when her feel-good hobby took off. Laura was taking improv classes for fun, but her laugh-out-loud performances ended up earning her two books deals, a wildly popular podcast, and a potential TV show. Her latest book, the witty Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling and Other Feminist Fairy Tales, comes out March 10. Oh yeah, and she just had a baby. Laura is nailing her latest role, that of mama to 18-month-old Rilo. Below, Laura shows us around her colorful, art-filled Brooklyn loft and talks new motherhood in all of its beautiful, messy, joyful, scary, and hilarious glory.
