Hey friends! My name is Sarah Smith and I like to call myself a Stay At Home Mom? Yeah Right! I’m a married mother of three (and a dog!) and a homemaker who rarely finds herself at home! I’m sure my fellow stay-at-home moms out there can relate. On this podcast I will be speaking candidly with my fellow parents and non-parents alike about the ups and downs and ins and outs of their personal journeys. Join me as we connect and converse about the highs and lows of being a parent, or (as the case may be) for whatever reason having never been a parent. Together we will learn all about how our guests were parented and how they parent - because every parent can stand to learn and a thing or two, am I right? And of course we will delve into the duties of the most under-appreciated member of the workforce - the stay-at-home moms! So please check us out every week for fun, honest, thought-provoking, challenging, and occasionally difficult conversations about the best "hood" there is - the parenthood.
