Five Reasons Why this Working Mom Watches "Scandal" (#Scandal)(#Gladiator)

I have learned that you can't always get what you want. But if you're lucky, you get what you need! (hey that sounds like a song...) In this case I am referring to how I frequently miss my favorite television shows . Before I had my daughter, I had a few television shows that I watched routinely. And frankly, nothing would come between me and my " Grey's Anatomy ".  Indeed, like a lot of people, Grey's got me hooked on Shonda Rhimes and I haven't looked back.

I have followed her to " Private Practice " and now to "Scandal". With the pressures of working and motherhood, every mom needs a guilty pleasure. And mine is "Scandal".
