With four children — Shaya, 7, Rain, 8, Sierra, 13, and Neriah, 15 — and their busy schedules to juggle, Brooke Burke-Charvet admits being a working mom is a balancing act.

“It’s probably the biggest challenge, that work-life balance,” Burke-Charvet told PEOPLE Friday on the set of her upcoming talk show, Breaking Bread with Brooke Burke, airing on FeeIn.

“Boring” is not a word Brooke Burke-Charvet knows well.

With four kids — Shaya, 6, Rain, 7, Sierra, 12, and Neriah, 14 — and their busy schedules to juggle, the TV personality is always on the go.

“I have a kindergartener and a teenager and everything in between. Rain had her first cavity so we were in the dentist this week, that was a big deal,” Burke-Charvet, 42, told PEOPLE during the Embassy Suites Hotel’s Pretty Great Family Debate at Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York City on Thursday.

“Shaya got a drum set for his sixth birthday — I don’t know if it’s the worst gift or the best gift I ever purchased.”
