Moms everywhere are falling in love with Workin’ Moms, a Canadian show about a group of working moms (obviously) who met in a new mom group and stayed friends as their kids (and problems) aged.

It’s nice to see our lives and problems accurately reflected on a television screen, right?

It doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty hilarious, too.

If you’ve watched it all and are looking for more similar content (I am!), then give these 10 shows a try.

10. Big Little Lies

So maybe this isn’t exactly about everyday motherhood, but the story will transport you out of your mundane life for a while, so I’m just passing it along. Also, the cast is amazing!

9. The Letdown

This Australian series (on Netflix) follows new mom Audrey as she figures out how to navigate all of the changes to the relationships in her life post-baby.

8. Parenthood

The entire series is on Hulu, and you’ll be able to watch these complicated sibling and parent-child relationships over and over again (with plenty of tissues).

7. Good Girls

You might not be looking to rob a grocery store, but we all like to dream about breaking more rules, right?

6. Jane the Virgin

This CW show has come home to Netflix and is an utterly delightful look at unexpected parenthood.

5. SMILF

Frankie Shaw created this Showtime original, following main character Bridgette as she learns to be a single mom.

4. Single Parents

This ensemble cast of single parents and friends is super funny and easy to watch. Check it out on ABC.

3. Black-ish

This might look like an average show about raising kids in suburbia, but audiences have loved it for five straight seasons. You can also watch it on ABC.

2. Trying

This British comedy series is on Apple TV+ and navigates all of the highs and lows of the adoption process.

1. I’m Sorry

This show, created by comedian Andrea Savage, is about navigating motherhood and comedy – there are tons of fun cameos, too.

I’m adding these to my watch list!
