With so many people working from home, years of pandemic, and just general mom life, it’s safe to say everyone’s wardrobe could use a little attention. Cammeo Murray joins Brittany and Heather to talk about how to sort through your existing wardrobe, how to build it into the wardrobe of your dreams, and the benefits of hiring a stylist.
Heather and Brittany talk about the roles they play in their school communities, some misconceptions about getting involved in your PTC (or PTA, PTO, Booster Club, or whatever name your child’s school calls it), and ways to make volunteering accessible if you are a working parent or don’t like being around large groups of kids.

Heather and Brittany talk to Kelsey of Wife Teacher Mommy about how to start the school year off on the right foot, how to maintain positive communication, and how teachers can work through burnout.
