Are you struggling to balance the demands of being a mother, running a household, and managing a career? US TOO! In this episode, we talk about how re-framing work-life balance as work-life harmony has helped us ditch the guilt of being working mothers.

We’re shining a light on mom rage, a topic that tends to be misunderstood, ignored and shamed. Many moms experience rage, but are too afraid to talk about it for fear of judgment or being labeled a “bad mom.” Join us as we discuss our personal experiences with mom rage, our triggers, and what has helped us to chill the hell out.
Motherhood is hard, yo. We love our children dearly, but sometimes we can resent the responsibilities of our role as a mom. In this episode, Emily and Brandi talk about the push and pull of motherhood, overcoming the guilt moms experience when we just want to be left alone, and why it’s so damn important moms set aside time for themselves.
