I think randomness often brings pretty freaky coincidences in our lives. One of them is this TV show, This is Us. It started airing in September 2016 and I was hooked from the beginning. I’m a sucker for these dramas (Parenthood, Brothers and Sisters, etc.). Not only that, it touched me so profoundly when the beginning of the story touches upon the loss of a baby and it’s so beautifully written that it triggered all the tears I had left in me. But I loved it… I felt the conversation with the doctor really described the raw emotions of it all. I hear he got an Emmy. It’s well deserved. Beyond that brief moment of the story, I loved the characters and found very original that the story evolved around triplet brothers and sister. At that time I didn’t even know I was pregnant (only just happened) never mind knowing it was triplets I was carrying.
Now that my girls are here and arrived safely, I have decided to pick it up where I left it. I have to admit that I thought it was too freaky of a coincidence and that watching it could end up with the same happening to me (losing one of the triplets). Superstition over and sanity regained, I’ve decided to enjoy watching it if I can manage to find time for it.
Any triplet parent watching it? Does it measure up to real life with triplets?
