Hot New Fall Comedy – Better Things – And Giveaway

One thing I look forward to in the Fall, are all the season premieres of my favorite shows. I also look forward to to seeing what new shows are being introduced. This season, there is a hot new fall comedy, Better Things, the premiered on September 8th.

Life can be overwhelming, life with children can be mind-blowing. When I was growing up, I always dreamt of having my own family. A husband, children, dog, and white picket fence.

Dreams do come true, I got my husband, children, 2 dogs / 1 cat, and a white vinyl fence. However, I also got all the stress and hard work that comes with raising children. Motherhood is much more than I ever expected. There are more many days than not that I wish parenting came with a handbook, telling me the right things to say or how to respond to different situations. But it doesn’t.

    LOL that pillow clip because that is so my life right now…

  4. Oh wow; this actually looks like it would be a really good show. My mom was a single mom of 3 girls and I know she felt really overwhelmed at times. I think my favorite clip was the Pillow one; I have actually been really tempted to do that in Target before lol.

  6. I relate most to the Bed Eye clip. I don’t actually have any kids, but I hate to be disturbed by anyone when I’m sleeping.

  7. I cant imagine raising 3 girls alone. I relate to her being a single mom. I watched the First Look clip and enjoyed getting the main character’s perspective on it.

  45. The Smoke Detector clip has some resonance in our family’s relationship with our smoke detector, CO2 detector, house alarm, etc.

  46. I know full well the frustration of ‘Bed Eye’ — it captures what it means to need rest and how difficult it is for any mom to get it. This is a ‘real’ picture of what it means to be a mom. I love it.
