Tuesday I received an awesome screening package for Bravo's new show Odd Mom Out. I could not hardly wait to watch it and since I was done teaching for the day and all caught up on grading a few of my colleagues and I hung out and laughed until we almost peed. This show is already our new favorite and was a great way to ring in our summer break.
The show is set in NYC and is based on an affluential family with one mom that is just not quite like the others. She pretty much is me, which made the show that much more hysterical. One of my favorite moments was Jill Weber (the odd mom) awkwardly "Won" the spin class race. It was one of those moments where I was totally cheering her on to win a race on a stationary bike. Her humor and antics are awesome but what I loved most was that Jill manages to stay grounded and real.
In this day and age of highly competitive parenting it is nice to know that there are more "Odd Moms" out there then you think and that we are really the norm. Yes I write a blog and make cool things but most of the time I am a plain jane mom who plays on the ground with my kids, snuggles during movies, feeds them crap food and runs errands, all the "cool stuff" I do happens when my kids are sleeping. We are all trying ladies, no need to be perfect, that is the beauty of parenting.
So are you jazzed to see this yet? Grab some girlfriends and plan for June 8th at 10/9c to watch Bravo and catch the first episode. It will be epic and you will love me for telling you all about this. Oh and seriously make these:
