About

Lunch Box Mom is written by me, Sarah Maraniss Vander Schaaff. I wrote the first story, I Know You Hate My Minivan, just after we bought one, something I thought we'd never do. Our second child was born shortly after that, and it took twelve months of sleep deprivation to inspire the second post, which was, interestly enough, about sleep deprivation.

Now, I write one post a week about a topic related to parenthood for this personal blog.



Sarah's work has recently appeared in:
