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.
Working At Home Go-To’s from Birdies Co-Founder Marisa
Kids: Zoe (9) & Amelia (7)
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!
