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.

I am a work from home mom who dearly loves her 15-year-old daughter, 11-year-old boy/girl twins, and husband. I love my life and feel very blessed by what God has provided for me.

  3. http://Kim%20Henrichs says

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

  4. http://Tyneisha says

    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.

  5. http://LaTanya says

    I like the bed’s eye clip

  6. http://Julie says

    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.

    I can really relate to the smoke detector clip. We have a smoke detector right by our kitchen and when cooking, it often goes off. My kids and husband come running when it goes off , saying I’m setting the house on fire and burning dinner.

  12. http://michelle%20cooke says

  40. http://Carolyn%20D says

    I love the pillow clip where she grabs the pillow in the store and screams into it. Sometimes we need to let our frustration out, but muffle if you don’t want anyone to hear you.

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

  46. http://Lorri%20K says

    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.

  47. http://Breanna%20Pollard says


  48. http://Margaret%20Smith says

    Ohhh the smoke detector clip is so our family. I can really relate to this one.
