As a member of Netflix’s Streamteam, I got early access to your newest favorite show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. (Trust me.) I only give honest opinions and I know you’re going to love this show. The main character, Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper), survives being locked in an underground bunker for 15 years. And it got me to thinking I’ve survived some stuff too. I’m unbreakable too. My kids can’t break me.
- Even when it’s four on one at the water park, you ask? Nope. Kids can’t break me.
- Even when you were up late and woken up early and there’s a freakin’ snow day without any snow so you know you’ll never see a nap that day? Nope. Kids can’t break me.
- Even when you have to juggle a thousand things and basically get an Act of Congress to make it to a Moms Night Out, but then someone throws up and you STILL DON’T GET TO GO? Nope. Kids can’t break me.
I’ve been through a lot, but I’m still here. I’m still ticking. Like Kimmy Schmidt, I take things 10 seconds at a time. I can do anything for 10 seconds. She had to mindlessly turn a crank. I have to sing all the verses of Wheels on the Bus. (All the verses…even the ones the kids made up over the years.) Just when I think I can’t go “Beep, Beep, Beep” one more time, I find a way to soldier on and get ‘er done. And like Kimmy I love a cute yellow sweater.
Though motherhood is difficult, in all honestly, I think I’m a better person because of it. The four little munchkins running around calling me “mama” are my greatest accomplishments. Much like the marathon I will never train for/run, they push me to my limits and then help me extend past those limits in so many ways. The greatest of which is how much I thought I could love someone else.
So yes, my kids can’t break me. I’m unbreakable. And you should watch Netflix’s Original series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to because you’re unbreakable too! (And it will also help you understand the references in this post.) I’m telling you…watch after the kids go to bed because you’re totally going to binge. Tina Fey is a writer/creator, need I say more? [Spoiler alert: Jane Krakowski is passing!]
