While They Nap
Summary: Hi! We're two new moms trying to navigate our way through motherhood, so let’s talk about it! Grab a coffee, glass of wine, or something a little stronger (we won’t judge) while we unpack, unwind, and discuss how we deal with parenting, relationships, and adulthood sans filters. All while the kids nap…of course.
The guest who so kindly agreed to grace our pod for our finale needs absolutely no introduction. But here's one anyway!

We've said it many times and will continue to do so because it's the truth...MARRIAGE IS HARD AF!!!
