It’s 2:43 am. I’m rolling my hair, organizing practice agendas, editing posts, and preparing for work. It won’t be long before the boys are tearing down the door asking for breakfast. I’ll race off to work early, leaving The Boss to get them ready for school alone. Then there’s practice. Then homework. Then dinner. He’ll come home from a twelve-hour day. We will give them baths, get them to sleep, and watch Smackdown before collapsing in the bed.

Me, daily.   Me, daily.

I could complain about the lack of sleep or help. I will at some point today.

Right after I meet with some of the finest names in my industry. And transfer 3 payments into my bank account today, thanks to my site. I even get to attend Prince’s first field trip with him at the end of the week. Are there better things I could be doing with my extra time and money? Of course. But, my goals shifted so that I can give them better things instead.

That is what I enjoy most about FX’s new show,Better Things. I  identify with how Sam navigates chasing her career and providing for her children. She bears the brunt of her children’s misplaced anger about their other parent’s absence. I empathize with that.

Children don’t understand that we’re floating on the the broken pieces too.

We press on anyway, seeking joy in the little things. I like boxed wine and a nap, The Boss prefers wings and infinite rounds of Call of Duty. We all have our “thing”. That’s why I teamed up with FX to host this giveaway. I want to give someone else a few “better things” to help them get through the day.
