Real Life with a Touch of Sarcasm

What I Watched on Maternity Leave.

We had our baby at the end of October. I was lucky enough to get to take 12 weeks, thank God. Once I was in that situation I couldn’t have imagined being able to function enough to go back to work at 6 weeks. I would have been insane.

Because I had 12 weeks, I had a lot of time to watch TV because holy hell…newborns are boring.

I decided to share the list of shows and movies I watched during the past 3 months.

And yes, I watched all these in 3 months.

Are there any of these shows that others love? Any missing that you would recommend?
