I’m pretty sure that I don’t have to tell you all that being a mom is not an easy job. Unfortunately, kids don’t come with instructions so there is a lot of winging it that is involved in raising kids. Most of us do the very best that we can and we often second-guess ourselves and wonder if we are even doing a good job after all. A few years ago, I even mixed up the dates for the first day of school since I was so swamped with work and I felt guilty for months afterwards.
That is why I can totally relate to FX’s new comedy series from Louis CK and Pamela Adlon, Better Things! It is all about those difficult moments that come with motherhood including those sleepless nights and those feelings like everything is always on your shoulders at all times. It’s so good to know that I’m not the only one who gets overwhelmed sometimes or that there really is no such thing as a perfect mother.
Sam Fox reminds me of myself and many of the other moms that I know. She is trying raise her three daughters in Los Angeles and juggle many roles including that of mom, dad, referee, police officer, doctor, etc. I actually give single moms like her so much more credit because it’s even harder to play the role of both parents to one’s children when the other one is not around.
You can check out this new comedy series on FX at 10 PM on Thursdays. Maybe this can be your own special slot to enjoy some time to yourself once a week. After all, being a mom is hard work and we all deserve a little “Me” time once in a while.
