Ah, moms. You know the women that raise us and are always on your side, no matter what! The women who don't necessarily have to give birth to you but will cheer you on and kiss your boo boos since day 1. They truly are magnificent creatures. They are your #1 fan!
Recently, I have been watching a show on Sunday nights called La Banda. It's a reality show (on Spanish TV-Univision) where contestants compete for a shot to get into a band. It's actually quite thrilling. There is just so much amazing talent on this show!
Now, I'm not usually a reality-show TV type of person, but as a mom, this show tugs on my heartstrings. Why? Well, they have really based this show on family, especially the contestant's relationships with their moms. I'm such a sucker for family TV!! On every episode the contestants perform and get judged. There are contestants eliminated and there are amazing guest performances. Check out the recent performances by Becky G and Marc Anthony! By the way, just in case you are wondering, Joel is my pick! Watch him perform "Stand by Me" and tell me he isn't amazing!!
As a mom of three kids with incredible talents, I know the work and commitment it takes to make sure your kids expose those talents to the world. These kids require constant support and reassurance that following your dreams is not a mistake. "Don't give up!" is constantly coming out of my mouth. Watching this show has been such an eye-opener for me. I have seen some of these contestants really struggle to be able to even audition for the show, much less go through weeks of grueling competition. I know that as the mom of an artist, musician and athlete, this will be our future and I am ready for it. I have been their number #1 fan since the beginning and I will be their #1 fan to the end!
La Banda is on Univision on Sunday nights at 8pm. Make sure to catch the finale on 12/13/15 to see who made the band. I'm sure it will be out of this world! Also, make sure to follow #LaBandaMoms on social media for all the bind-the scenes and family fun!
