Hint: Betty Draper did not make my 5 most-inspiring list.
Love ‘em or hate ‘em: TV moms past and present will either make you want to be a better mom or wonder how in the world they were allowed to procreate, even if it’s only fiction! Here’s 5 TV moms who inspire me to be a better mom and 5 that absolutely do not!
Ok, so I hate football but found myself ADDICTED to Friday Night Lights after seeing so many friends say they loved the show. It's a fantastic series (available for instant viewing on Netflix, btw), having just ended its final season earlier this year, and it's not only about football. Not at all. Tami Taylor's portrayal as a mom to two daughters- one a teen and the other a baby- was one of the best examples I've seen on television. A scene in particular where she has "the talk" with her teenage daughter Julie is one I plan to refer to when it comes time for myself to have that talk with my daughter. She's smart, powerful, and compassionate. Tami Taylor is my hero.
