Modern Family Rocks and Represents All Types of Families

It's simple, Modern Family rocks! ABC's new sitcom had me in stitches as it showcased three related families. Here are the highlights: First, there's the "traditional" couple, Phil and Claire, who have three teen and tweenage kids — Haley, Alex and Luke. Self-proclaimed cool dad, Phil is anything but, and embarrasses his children by singing and dancing to High School Musical tunes. Priceless moment: When the parents schedule a time to shoot their youngest child with a BB gun as punishment for popping his sister. "Shoot Luke at 4:15"!

Then, there's Grandpa Jay who is a newlywed after marrying the vivacious Gloria who is several years younger. The two are raising Manny, a passionate boy who professes his love to girls much to his step-dad's chagrin. Memorable scene: Jay's reaction to an acquaintance assuming he's Gloria's father.

Rounding out the trio, are gay couple, Mitchell (Jay's son) and Cameron who have adopted baby Lily from Vietnam and are trying to find an appropriate way to tell their relatives about the new addition. Clip that left viewers in stitches: It's a tie between the floating fairy mural in the nursery and Cameron's dramatic unveiling of their daughter to the Lion King music.

No amount of kudos can do this show justice, so make sure you tune in! It's a welcomed break for any busy mom. Photo courtesy of
