5 Netflix Programs to Binge-Watch on Mother’s Day
By: The Nixplay Team
The notion of motherhood that we see in movies and social media presents only the glossy, picture-perfect aspect of the experience. Not captured by the lens are the messy diapers, sleepless nights, unexplainable tantrums, and countless headaches. It’s not always a glamorous experience, but that’s what makes it more worthwhile.
Motherhood is not easy, especially when you’re dealing with postpartum depression, sexism in the workplace, relationships, and your own dreams and aspirations. That’s why Workin’ Moms is so relatable: This Canadian sitcom revolves around four Canadian women’s return to the workforce after having babies, humorously capturing the tricky balancing act all working mothers go through.
This classic drama-comedy focuses on the lives of Lorelai, a thirty-something single mom, and her teenage daughter Rory as they navigate the ups and downs of suburban life in Connecticut. This sweet, well-loved series is guaranteed to bound on your heartstrings.
Another hilarious movie about the struggles of “having it all,” Bad Moms tells the story of Amy Mitchell, a suburban mom of two who finds herself spread too thin while balancing the demands of her job and her responsibilities as to her kids. When she meets a laid-back single mother and a hands-on stay-at-home mom at a bar, they get inspired by one another and hilariously become better versions of themselves.
Is your mom a fan of ABBA? If so, Mamma Mia! Should be on your must-watch list. You and your mom will enjoy singing along to the romantic musical’s song numbers, and you’ll want to hug her a little bit tighter once the credits start rolling.
Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife
Want a laugh-out-loud show? Stand-up comedienne Ali Wong’s brash, witty tirades about family life and motherhood, fueled by raging pregnancy hormones, should strike a chord and tickle all your funny bones. The best part? You don’t have to be a mom to relate to Wong—you just need a great sense of humor. A final warning: This show isn’t for uptight folks!
While you’re at it, you might as well give mom a gift that will remind her of all the fun she had while raising you! Give her a Nixplay Frame loaded with photos of her with her family, and she’ll feel like the luckiest mom in the world.
