Alice Emory

Alice Emory is a lifestyle writer at Romper, where she gets to cover all things parenting — everything from playdates to napping woes to why toddlers think the toilet will eat them. Alice enjoys ruminating on some of the weirder, funnier aspects of raising a kid, and likes puzzling over parenting issues via personal essay. She’s written about where one can get a wondrous unicorn duvet, as well as what it’s like to get not-so-wondrous vaginal stitches. When she isn’t busy chatting with her son about how cool robot leeches would be, she can be found listening to podcasts she never gets to finish, eating that egg-free cookie dough stuff from a jar, or jogging like she’s being chased by wolves after eating too much egg-free cookie dough stuff from a jar.
