David Livingston/Getty Patricia Heaton is poised for a return to the small screen in the upcoming ABC sitcom The Middle, and like her character in Everybody Loves Raymond she’ll again be playing a mom. “I relate to every single thing,” the 51-year-old actress and mom-of-four tells Entertainment Tonight. “This is a very comfortable character for me to be in.”

It is a frenzied state of being she recalls all too well. “I don’t do it so much anymore, but when the kids were little and I was working a lot, that was totally me,” she admits. “Although we did, like, toaster waffles more.” Her revelation — and her new character — is something she hopes other women will also relate to.
