ABC’s “The Middle” is so hilarious. The Heck’s is a sketch of a real family, dealing with real issues. They have 3 kids and, like most families, they all lead very busy lives. Axl (Charlie McDermott) plays football, Sue (Eden Sher) is a cross country runner and Brick (Atticus Shaffer), the youngest who loves to read, spell and repeat almost every last word he says, doesn’t seem to get his share of attention until he goes missing or is in some sort of trouble.
Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and husband Mike Heck (Neil Flynn) try their best to balance their children’s busy schedules, and attend every game and competition. However, when there are unfortunate schedule conflicts, Frankie and Mike have to decide who will attend which event. In one episode, Frankie looked forward to being Axl’s escort for the homecoming football game, where she would escort her son out on the field and kiss him on the cheek. Then, after buying the perfect dress (she planned to return later), Frankie learns Sue also has a cross country meet.
Like the Heck family, my husband and I really enjoy attending our kid’s extracurricular events together, but there are times when we have to split-up to make sure our kids have at least one cheering parent in attendance.
