This is a show for moms that agree with me when I say, “Motherhood is HARD.” And for moms that are tired of pretending it’s NOT hard. So many moms out there are trying so hard to convince themselves there is a right and a wrong way to be a mom and that we should strive to love every moment of our lives as moms. But I’m here to prove all those moms wrong. I believe that by sharing our struggles we can start to relieve the pressures off ourselves to be perfect and have all the right answers. So let’s start talking about all our mom sh*t unapologetically. Let’s remind each other that having hard times doesn’t make us less-than or not good enough. It makes us REAL. And sharing that realness out loud makes us CLASSY.
A Small Business During A Global Pandemic
Introducing Jessica Brown and the Doorbell Dash. Delivering balloon bouquets straight to your doorstep. In this episode, I was able to chat with Jessica Brown, owner of Frosting and Fringe, about pivoting to balloon bouquet deliveries during the pandemic, starting her business with a newborn, being in a mental place of positivity, and the ways Coronavirus life how shifted being a business owner and mom. Jessica gives us so much great insight into how she has been able to keep life moving forward!
Conquer Your Chaos
Raise your hand if you have found yourself saying, “This is just how it is right now”. For MANY of us, this quarantine has been full of life-altering shifts, changes of schedules, unprecedented demands from our jobs, and way too much time at home without escape from our families. In Episode 11, I am chatting with Shannon Bally host of the Pumpcast Podcast and Chaos Queens. Shannon gives us some practical tips and mindset shifts to help us not just get through the chaos, but actually conquer it.
How to Get Your Shit Together
In this episode, I am opening up about my struggle to balance motherhood and my career. My shit was a mess. It got to a point where it was just easier to give up on everything rather than trying to put the pieces together.
I want all my Mamas out there to know they are not alone in feeling a little desperate for a way out. I am giving you the six steps I took to get myself out of that s****y place of anxiety, overwhelm, and self-loathing and actually took back control of my life.
What Dad Thinks
Today I have two DADS on the show. Why? I wanted to get a Dad perspective on what they see their partners go through from the outside looking in. Moms have a LOT of guilt around parenting.
But I wanted moms to hear it from the mouths of dads. What do they see us struggling with in motherhood? How come it’s different for dads? We also re-cap three of my favorite past episodes. You do not want to miss this, mamas because these dads want us to know that dads want to help, they just need us to tell them how.
How to Survive as a SAHM
Who here is a stay-at-home Mama? Today I’m talking to my long-time friend about life as a stay-at-home mom and the truth about how hard and lonely it can become. We get into dealing with terrible two’s ALL DAY LONG, relinquishing control when your SO is home, feeling guilty for wanting me time, and also feeling lonely when you’re home all day with tiny humans. We even talk about the financial choice of staying home and the pressure to have perfect kids and a spotless home.
The Cause and Effect of Mom Guilt
This episode is a deep dive into the guilt we feel as moms. Do you ever wonder WHY you feel so guilty about everything you do as a mom? I know that as moms, we create a lot of that guilt ourselves. But Amber and I touch on the idea of being conditioned by society to feel guilty. And if that IS true, then what!? We are just two every-day moms chatting about the modern day psyche of a mom and societal norms that are imposed on us as women. For show notes and links, www.classyandreal.com/podcast/episode7

Real talk from real moms
A great podcast if you are a parent and you want to hear the perspectives from normal moms. The podcast so far is geared more towards moms and the things they go through which is cool. As a dad It’s interesting to hear moms talk about everything they deal with and think because let’s be honest it’s not the same for us.
