"When you're a mom

on the other side of 40,

"with a daughter only

six months away from college,

"sometimes, you just

can't help but wonder...

"Like, what if I'd taken

that internship

"with the ad agency?

"But then I realize,

"being a mother

is not all that different

"from the corporate world.

"You start out unsure,

feeling your way,


all those little details

that nobody really notices."

I'm hungry!

When are we gonna get there?

Hi, this is Carly Ashby.

I need to make an appointment

for my daughter, Sadie?

"...A more challenging position,

"where you learn

to tell the difference

between a real problem... "


No, no, not you.

"... and whining..."

I have to go

to the bathroom.

Honey, we'll be home soon.

"All the while,

"still making sure

everything gets done.

"One day, you reach a point

"where your insight

and experience are appreciated,

"and before you know it,

"you're more than

just a worker,

you're a partner."

You'll never guess.

David Sarlo

asked me to the dance!

He's so cute!

At first, I thought

he liked Avery,

but then Jenna told Sophie

that he liked me...

"Where you share

the kind of mutual respect

"that can only be nurtured

over the years by listening.

But that's where

the similarities end."

"Because unlike a corporate job,

"you never retire

from being a mother.

"After all the scraped knees,

and messy room,

"grocery and dentist bills,

"the girl scout

and PTA Meetings,

"piano lessons,

the school plays,


and sports practices,

"not to mention

the driving lessons,

"it was spring

of her senior year,

"and she suddenly...

"grew up.

"Even when your children

grow up,

"they'll always need you

"and want to share

things with you.

"At least, you hope they do.

"Because if they don't...

"well, that just might

turn out to be

the hardest part of the job."

Happy Birthday,


Oh, Ryder,

it's beautiful!

The new vegan recipe

Vegan! Great!

All right,

blow out the candles,

make a wish.

Carly, what are you doing?

It's your birthday,

let me take care of this.

Ryder, you've already

done enough already.

Besides, you need to

get home to your baby.

No, I just talked

to Peter,

Cole is still down

for his nap.

And besides, I live

right next door,

so I can literally

be there in two seconds

if they need me.

Thank you for everything

you did for my party.

It was so much fun.

Well, speaking of fun,

what does the birthday girl

have planned

for the rest of her evening?

Hey, Mom,

Trish just texted me,

wants to know if

I can go to a movie.

Can I go? Please?

It looks like

the birthday girl's

going to be waiting up

for her daughter.

Just be home by 11:00.

Thanks. Love you.

Oh, and

happy birthday.

Thanks, honey.

Be safe!

And to think

I was worried

you wouldn't have

anything to do tonight.

It's fine, Ryder.

It'll give me a chance

to write my blog.

Okay, do not make me regret

introducing you

to the whole blogging world.

What are you talking about?

I love writing my blog.

And I really think

I have something to say.

I just hate to see you

alone on your birthday.

I'm not alone.

I have thousands of followers

who need to see a picture

of this vegan cake.



Didn't know you

were stopping by.

Yeah, I was, um...

I was wondering if maybe

I could borrow 20 bucks?

Just until next payday.

Stu and I are

gonna hang out.

Didn't you just

get paid yesterday?

Well, yeah, but I meant,

until I get paid next week.

You really need to manage

your money more responsibly.

No, I do, it's just,

I had to buy new wheels

for my board.

And it's like you always say,

priorities, right?

Yeah, I also always say

I won't be sending you money

every time you blow through

your monthly allowance

once you're in college.

So, that would be a "no"?


Thank you for playing.

Better luck next time.

Thanks, Dad.

I really learned

an important lesson today.

Thanks, Aunt Lauren.

Have fun, kiddo.

I am trying to teach him

a lesson.

And I'm trying to be

his fun aunt.

You're not helping, Lauren.


I'm not alone.

Thanks for the ride.


I'm sorry,

did I wake you up?

Oh, no.

Did you have fun?


How was the movie?

It was good.

You know.


Well, as long as you had fun.

'Night, Mom.

'Night, kiddo.

"If you're a baseball player

"and you get a hit

"every other time

you step up to the plate,

"they put you

in the Hall of Fame.

"If you're a parent

with that same batting average,

"all you can think about

is where you went wrong.

"Unfortunately, there's

no minor league for parenting.

Maybe there should be."



I brought a centerpiece

from the store.

I thought

it might help.

Carly, it's beautiful.

Well, what's

a Spring bake sale


a few flowers?

Thank you.

This all looks


Well, that's

kind of the idea.

Hey, did you

get an invite

for the Bloggers Event

at the community arts center?

Yeah, I got it.

You're going to

go, right?

I don't know...

Oh, come on, Carly,

you have to go.

Blog readers love

to put a name to a face.

Plus, it's

a really great way

to get your numbers up.

I'll think about it.

I'm a little

distracted right now.

We just registered Sadie

for classes

at community college.

That's great.

Yeah, she's happy.

But not quite as happy

as her mom, right?

What does that mean?
