How many times have you put your kids to bed for the night and plopped down on the couch only to stare at the television for who knows how long before realizing that cartoons are still on the screen? It’s happened to me far more times than I care to admit, hehe. The good news is if you have the television turned to the Nick Jr. channel it will automatically become NickMom TV at 10PM every single night with shows you actually want to watch.
One of those shows is Instant Mom starring Tia Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie who is instantly thrown into motherhood after marrying Charlie, an older dad with three kids. All of a sudden Stephanie has to trade in Martini Mondays and Tequila Tuesdays with step-motherhood to three rather ornery step children. Stephanie also has to find a balance between being a new wife, step mom, friend, and her career driven life as a food blogger all while maintaining a sense of self. It cracks me up watching Gabby, James, and Aaron try to pull things over on their new step mom. I kick back on the couch and think “oh you poor woman,” hehe…. “eventually you’ll get it!”
We all need to figure out how to balance all of the roles we play as moms… for many of us it’s a long list. The hardest role to fit in many times is that of being a friend and finding time to hang out with your girlfriends. But I have it figured out. So many times we are just exhausted and would rather crash on the couch and watch some television than get all prettied up to go out. That is where NickMom TV comes in! Invite your girlfriends over once the kiddos are in bed for the night, chow on some yummy food, and crack up at the antics of Stephanie’s step children and thank God that’s not you. Haha. That’s exactly what my bestie, Allie, and I did the other night. It was a much needed and much deserved mom’s night in. It truly doesn’t get better than pizza, salty chips, sweet cookies, Pepsi, and laughs with an awesome friend.
So tonight instead of staring aimlessly at cartoons long after the kids have been tucked in for the night check out Instant Mom on NickMomTV. New episodes air on Sunday evenings at 10PM EST, but reruns are played every night. Be sure to check the NickMom schedule to confirm when it will be playing in your specific time zone. You can also follow NickMom on Facebook and Twitter because the laughs don’t have to end when the show is over.
