Parenting is hard! Let's talk about it. Welcome to my blog – the Sperow’s Nest!! What’s it all about? A behind-the-scenes look into my life as a wife, mom and career woman.

I’m wearing many hats so just like any other woman I’m just trying to juggle what life throws at me. I’m not perfect…and this blog allows me to showcase that publicly! (Wait…what??)
