We’re all just trying to do the best we can as moms.
And sometimes that looks like losing it on the judgmental bystander who is shooting you dirty looks because of a parenting choice you made… where you know what’s going on and you’re doing what you need to do, but that judgey mcjudgerson doesn’t know that… so you lose it on them because you’ve already had enough.
That’s exactly what happens in the opening scene of the new FX show Better Things.
Better Things is on FX Thursday nights at 10pm- and it’s definitely one to watch after the kids go to bed. It’s about those days when you’re feeling tired and overwhelmed and wishing you’d maybe handled a situation a little better, like when Sam (the main character), tells one of her children “Hide things from me, please!” after her daughter shares way more than Sam is comfortable with. While I want my boys to be honest with me, if I’m being totally honest here, there are probably things I don’t ever want to hear!
And when Sam responded to her child’s “Mom!” with “WHAT?!?” I laughed. I’ve done that way more times than I can count. I always mean to just say “yes?” or something sort of polite and open, but when it’s the end of the day and I’m so freaking tired and just want a little peace and quiet, WHAT?!? is what pops out.
Better Things will have you laughing along and maybe even feeling a little bit better about your own mom skills…or at least, not so alone.
