I Was Told It Would Get Easier is all about how . . .
Parenting teenagers is something of a shit show.
Jessica and her daughter Emily are taking a weeklong trip with a group of other parents and children to tour various East Coast colleges. The intention was for a bonding experience, but not only do Jessica and Emily seem to no longer speak the same language, but Jessica is dealing with multiple work crises and Emily is waiting for the shoe to drop regarding a cheating scandal at her high school.
While you don’t have to be a parent to relate to this one, it sure adds another dimension due to its relatability. Finding a balance between work and home life, raising a “normal” kid in a world full of overachievers and other types of parents . . . . .
And praying the worst thing that happens is you have someone like this living in your house . . . .
Rather than someone like this . . . .
Bottom line . . . .
It’s the world’s most wonderful and most terrible job, and if you do it well enough, you get fired.
And the greatest thing of all? My best friend Frances from Other People’s Houses makes a cameo appearance. To that I have only one thing to say . . . .
Waxman is definitely the queen of the "momcom."
