Notes From the Underbelly Hit Close to Home

I was excited to see that Notes From the Underbelly made a return to the ABC line up. I have no idea how many viewers they have, but I've yet to meet a new mom or pregnant woman who doesn't love the show. As silly as it can be, certain parts of it hit so close to home that it leaves you laughing out loud.

Last night's premiere episode had a bit of everything — people offering unsolicited opinions about the sex of Lauren's baby, a baby nurse cracking the whip on baby Perry's new parents, swaddling techniques, and single friends dealing with neurotic new parents.

My favorite phrase of the episode was from Julie. Lauren asked her,

"How hard is a swaddle?" to which she replied, "It's like giving an angry cat a bath when you're drunk."

Touché Julie.

That was such a funny scene. The scene when she tried to swaddle her husband was even funnier. I'm not a mom, but I find the show to be pretty humorous and easy to relate to.
