What We’re Loving This Month

What We're Loving This Month | Sycamore

A little late to the party, Kirk and I are just finishing up the final season of Parenthood. I’ll be a little sad to say goodbye to the Bravermans. What I love about that show is how it really celebrates family — and a big, multigenerational, sometimes wonderful, sometimes messed up family. It feels real — at least more real than the way most TV shows depict families.

I find myself wishing that all my siblings lived in the same town and that they’d pop by my work just to ask me a question (instead of texting like normal people) and we’d have sibling dance parties and hang out in hospital waiting rooms together. (Okay, maybe not that last part.) I can’t believe we’re all grown up and that my brothers and sister and I are all adults and are married and have children.

I also can’t believe my baby just turned 3, because it means that I don’t really have a baby anymore — just kids. But they’re pretty awesome kids. And I feel incredibly grateful to be a mother and a sister and a daughter and a wife.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers and nurturers and sisters and daughters out there! xo

    Funny, Eva – I just finished parenthood a couple weeks ago! I watched the first couple seasons years ago and then gave up. Lots I like about that show, but lots I didn’t like, too – this time I started on season 4 and finished. I skipped a LOT of the last two seasons (a lot is depressing really), only watching what plot lines I cared about. 😉 BUT – best series finale ever, I think. And no other show has been able to make me ALMOST cry so often! I am not usually a crier.

      So good, right Kirsten?! I agree that there are times when it gets intense / depressing and we have to give it a break for awhile. Like right now. We actually only have 4 episodes left! But it’s been crazy intense and so we’ve been watching other things in between. Need to finish it up because Ive heard form others, too, that the finale is amazing. xo
