Mom life. We all know that some days as a mom are better than other days. Right? I mean, some days we’re so sleep-deprived that we try to make a cup of coffee and forget to put the coffee mug under the dispenser and end up with coffee all of the kitchen floor and counter.
Louis CK and Pamela Adlon’s comedy series Better Things on FX on Thursdays at 10 pm resonates with my life like no one’s business. I’m a mom of four kids and business owner. I juggle a million roles as a mom and business owner. Paperwork pusher, taxi driver, babysitter, play date coordinator, chef, housekeeper, the list goes on. Thank goodness I have a great support system.
Honestly, I can just take all else out of the equation and simply focus on being a mom of four to see how the show resonates with being a busy mom. At one point, I had four kids ages 4 years old and under. I don’t even remember how I survived that first year when my twins were born. Being a mom can be overwhelming. In the last 13 years, I can think of plenty of times when I’ve been more than a touch overwhelmed and felt like anything but the perfect parent. The premiere of Better Things on FX reminded me just how imperfect I am and that is okay! That coffee that never made it in a mug? Yeah, that’s happened more than a few times over the years. Arguing with my kids over basically nothing? Seems like that happens more days than I care to admit.

I love that FX sent me a Better Things Rock & Roll mom gift pack to help with my less than awesome days to help me feel a little more human. They sent sunglasses to help hide the bags under my eyes, a pillow to scream into, and a clutch with relaxing goodies. They also gave me a gift basket with Better Things goodies to give away to my readers! Leave me a comment below about a less than perfect day in the life of parenthood and a day you were feeling overwhelmed. I’ll randomly pick one of my favorite comments.
