Storyline

Stephanie is a former party girl who trades in her cocktails for carpools when she instantly adds three children to her life by marrying their father, Charlie. Needless to say, she struggles to find a balance between her fun-loving and slightly irresponsible lifestyle with being a full-time stepmother. As she learns what being a mother is about, partially with help from her own mom, Stephanie tries to do things her own way. Among the motherly experiences she has are being on the parents' dance committee and planning a 'staycation' for her family. Written by Anonymous

Instant Mom is Great
18 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really love this show and even taped each episode so I can watch them over again! The boys are very funny and Sheryl Lee is too! I think Tia is great but the daughter could use funnier lines written for her. There should also be a little less drinking on the show because Tia and Sheryl are funny without the drinking. Would also like to see it at an earlier time slot. I really like the episodes where Tia attends the boys schools (bullying little girl and school dance). I think there should be more episodes like that and more episodes with the Dad included (episodes at his work place). I would like to see cast members from Sister Sister make guest appearances on the show. I think it would be really funny! (Tim Reid, Jackee)
