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.
