WFH Tips from Birdies’ Working Moms

Working from home every day has been tough. Working from home with kids running around is a whole other level of hard. So we asked our very own work-from-home warrior moms to share their best tips for balancing it all—plus the Birdies they’re wearing to stay comfortable.

Best Work-From-Home Advice from Birdies Co-Founder Bianca

Kids: Sofia (10) & Joaquin (7)

Survival tip: Staying on a schedule: school work in the morning (no playing on iPads until 5 p.m.!), a creative project in the afternoon, a family walk, and dinner together every night. 

What the kids are loving right now: TikTok has been fun for the whole family. SeeSaw and Zoom for school activities. Watching Our Planet together on Netflix.

Go-to WFH outfit: A pair of very worn (and soft) jeans, light cashmere sweater, and my black velvet Starlings.

Survival tip: Family workouts every afternoon. They check a few boxes with one activity: spending time together, exercising, and helping them work off some energy!

What the kids are loving right now: Nailed It on Netflix and Just Dance contests on YouTube—hours of entertainment for them and the dancing is hilarious.

Go-to WFH outfit: Black joggers, a cozy sweater, and my Phoebe slides in floral jacquard.

Survival tip: This week I created a daily schedule with rewards and treats when they check an item off the list—it’s been life-changing!

What the kids are loving right now: For apps, we love the virtual library app, Libby, and Monkey Math, which their teachers recommend. Our movie of the week is Inside Out.

Go-to WFH outfit: I've been wearing my latte Starlings on repeat, as they go with everything from leggings to jeans to silky PJs.

Work-from-Home Ground Rules from Birdies Merchandising Director Robyn
