On "What’s Goin’ on Down There?", Adam is pulled in so many directions he nearly has a melt down; Sarah develops feelings for Mr. Cyr without much thought to her daughter; and Crosby has a hot playdate with a desperate seductress.
This episode was primarily centered on Adam, and the struggles he feels in not having enough time for himself while taking care of his family. He literally is the rock and center of the Braverman clan, the go to guy. When someone needs a hand, they call Adam. No wonder his head is literally spinning.
We were glad to see Adam finding some time to surf at the end of the episode. A lot of parents out there always put their children and others before themselves, and this storyline is especially true to this stay at home mother of two.
I can’t even remember the last book I had time to read, let alone find the time to take the chipped nail polish off my toe nails! Can you believe it? It was refreshing to watch another parent come to the realization that “me time” is a vital part of your well being. I think all parents need to remember this!
Sarah hooks up with Amber’s teacher, the adorable Mr. Cyr, and actually develops feelings for the guy. Too bad her conscious eventually gets in the way, resulting in their breakup. Amber is so angered by the ordeal, she skips her SAT’s to hang out with her devious Fresno boyfriend. What a mess! Note to parents, what you do during your child's teenage years can really screw them up! Do NOT date your kid’s teachers!
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, AND LOVE IT!!! (The entire episode we mean).
