About Us


Sisters, best friends, and a couple of moms…

In 1983, we became besties. Like most siblings, we had our fights through the years, but always remained close. In 2011, we both got pregnant! From that time on, our brains were consumed by all things Baby and Mommy, so we leaned on each other more than ever. In 2012, As if being a new mom wasn’t time-consuming enough, any minute we could steal was spent on the phone with each other–chatting while pumping, or video chatting while the little ones used our bodies as a jungle gym. It was time to take our questions and rants to the streets. By the “streets,” we mean a private Facebook group called the “New Mommies Circle.” Well, the group took a life of its own, and we were inspired to start a blog. So here we are!


Hi! I’m Kristin Speak, a working mom to “Ladybug”, in the Inland Empire area of Southern California. My current occupation allows me to work-from-home mostly.  Any solo minutes I have are typically used for crafting, spending time with my hubby, writing and hanging out with my sis, Lauren Tuculescu.




Hello there! I’m Lauren Tuculescu, an Orange County, California, part-time-stay-at-home-mom to “Bubba” and “Little Dude.” I work in Marketing a few days a week, and consider myself extremely lucky to be home with my boys on the days I am not in the office. When I score a minute, I stay busy volunteering, cooking, making music with my former band-mate/husband, and contributing to this blog alongside my fabulous big sister, Kristin Speak.
