This show is amazing I want to be like Katie when I'm a mom!
29 November 2017 | by skatergirl-86436See all my reviews

I really love this show. I just started watching it tonight but I love it so much. I love the humor and that Katie doesn't give a damn about what anyone else thinks. I also like how theory use the small town as a humor point as well. I also enjoy that they are proud of their daughter who doesn't always fit in. I want to be like Katie when I am a mom someday! They are a loving and very fun family to watch for sure!
