The show This is Us has quickly captured the hearts of mothers across the United States. I am already a die-hard fan. The show caught my attention from the pilot episode when we learned the shows focuses on the lives of the parents and the kids at their same ages (when the parents were 36 and when the kids are now 36).

This is something I have thought about myself frequently. My parents are young parents (and young grandparents now). My mom had me when she was 20 years old. I had my first born a little bit later. After having kids of my own, I would often think, "Oh wow, when I was four, my mom was only 24!" I suddenly realized why it was probably hilarious for my mom to dress her daughter up as Cindy Lauper and know the lyrics to Madonna songs.

So, watching This is Us has taken a top priority in my tv viewing life. Nothing comes between me and my show. I am always a little giddy when I get to watch it live rather than on hulu the next day. When this actually happens, I go all in. Ben & Jerry's, popcorn, wine and lots of tissues. It never leaves me disappointed or dry-eyed.

Ben & Jerry's, Wine, Tissues are all necessities for This Is Us

But, let's talk about Toby. I am a huge fan of Toby and Kate. Why won't they leave Toby alone? She breaks up with him, he has a heart attack, he has surgery, then they bring a new guy into the picture? Leave. Toby. Alone.
