Conversations at the Kitchen Table: Episode 1 – Mom Friends

The elusive mom friend. 

Where do you find them? How do you make them? Is it normal to have a ‘mom bestie’ or is it ok just to use each friendship for exactly what it is? On this episode – our very first – we talk about our own mom friend experiences, share funny stories, practical tips, and basically discover that we’re all just doing the best we can. 

At the table:

Amanda, Erin, Jennelle, Candice, Meghann, Bridget, Lindsay, Anna and Danielle
