Did you know that as parents we are more and more comfortable telling it like it is to kids about important topics...except when it comes to money?
Imagine a place to learn how to navigate through those important discussions and to share that experience with other parents as well all while having a cup of coffee while the kids are being looked after? Money, Mommy & Me is looking to build a community of parents striving for a financially stable environment for their families to THRIVE!
