Troy Michel

I'm a 33-year-old, working mother tougher of five (yes, F I V E! with one on the way!) and tv & radio personality from Richmond, VA. People are always asking me how I do all that I do. It's not easy. It's not glamorous either. In fact, it's crazy, exhausting and, at times, overwhelming--such as life. If you're reading this, you're probably curious, too. Well, brace yourself for my raw, unadulterated honesty. The pain, the poop, the laughter, the tears, the love, the frustration, etc. Look, we've all been there. Unfortunately, most people don't talk about it -- at least not unabridged and uncensored. I've never been shy about my experiences as a mother. I'm a sharer. And I tend to overshare! This is my journey. Welcome!

As parents, we enjoy purchasing clothing that reflects our children's personalities as well as our sense of humor. So, we wanted to create the products that we wished were on the market, but couldn't find. Thus, this trendy t-shirt line with age-appropriate, family-friendly humor, was born.
