Hot Mom Summer Loading
Typical Tuesday with two best friends spilling the tea. We discuss an array of topics from getting the kids on a sleep schedule, the COVID vaccine, to our thoughts on having more children and having a hot mom summer!
Get Out of My Bed... Co-Sleeping + Work + Life
If you just need a little girl talk in your life, this episode is for you! In casual convo we chat about everything from poop on the comforter to managing work, to the milestones of the kids. Come on into our world!!
Notes from a seasoned Mom... RELAX!
We invited our friend Jourdan (mom of two) to discuss motherhood and how it's impacted her world as a wife and a woman. We get candid about keeping your relationship priority, and staying true to who you are as a woman, without the man or the kids. Her last bit of advice, relax!!

Criticism & Colorism Start in the Home
After hearing what Meghan Markle experienced we wanted to explore how colorism and self-critique has shown up and impacted us in our own lives.
Postpartum... 6 Weeks Wasn't Enough
Bri and Michelle discuss their journey through postpartum to this point. It's not all smiling faces and pretty pictures, it's hard mentally, physically, emotionally, but we are pushing through. We never want to paint the picture as easier or harder than it has to be... it just is what it is.
Parenthood is A Partnership: Meet the Husbands Part 2
Briana and Michelle's husbands join the friends on this episode to share their perspectives on life and parenting to this point. The fathers discuss their approach to parenting, how they believe they can best support their wives, and what their journey has been like.
I stumbled across this podcast while trying to find something interesting to listen to while I work from home . Both women bring different perspectives and ideas to motherhood. One suggestion I would make is ensuring you have the perspective of single moms too. Both hosts are married and seem to have done things in order ( dating , marriage then baby with a supportive partner) but most single moms don't have that story. I would love to hear from single moms or moms in the co-parenting game as navigating through those waters looks quite different then marriage with a baby. I can't to hear what's in store for season 2. Great work ladies !
Relevant & Necessary!
Finally a podcast I can relate to about the most important thing in my life - Pregnancy & Motherhood. You have to respect the raw vulnerability opposed to the everyday black & white ‘How to be a Perfect Mother’ podcasts. The transparency from the trying stage to the 3rd/4th Trimester journey (during a Pandemic) is one every soon-to-be / new Mom should listen to just to remind yourself that YOU ARE NOT ALONE QUEEN & you got this! My 3rd Trimester & New Momma hormones thank you girls for being my virtual homegirls ♥️
Love the transparency and honesty.
