My people. Are you ready for a show that depicts motherhood for the emotionally and physically draining (but incredibly amazing/rewarding/fun experience.) it actually is? Well, it is finally here. Better Things is the new show by Louis CK and Pamela Adlon about motherhood and the authentic struggles and abounding joy that comes along with it.
Sam (the main character) is honestly all of us. She is tired, but she would do anything for three daughters. She feels unappreciated, she wishes she could do more, and yet- she feels like she’s doing her very best. The rawness of her character really resonates with me. Watching her character develop and the comical frustrations as a parent. In so many ways, this story could be based on my life. I feel like I’m always spinning my wheels and getting no where. That constant nagging of if I’m screwing up my children?! Does anyone else experience that?
Being a mama is a hard job, I’m so refreshed to see there’s a hilarious show on television now that accurately showcases the mom life. Sam is such an easily lovable character. You can check out Better Things on FX Thursday evenings at 10 EST.
For me, I’ve been struggling with my two year old lately. He’s such a cranky kid, sometimes leaves me feeling like a crappy mama. The truth is, it is only temporary. We will eventually find Better Things. As in, more peace in our households than power struggles with a toddler.
