Teacher Tales and Mommy Fails

A Day in the Life of Three Teacher Moms

About the show

We are three teacher moms, keeping it real and hoping to make you feel normal...well as normal as one can be. Each week we're going to talk about our highs and our lows which I'm sure you ALL can relate to. We will share some advice that you can take or leave because we all know parenting is different for EVERYONE. We will try our best to be judgement free, and while we chat, we plan to have some fun as well! Hot or Not, Never Have I Ever, Would You Rather...the options are endless. Give us a listen and see what you think. We will NOT disappoint.
