Modern Family

Did anyone else catch Modern Family last night?

**Spoiler Alert**

Phil goes in for a vasectomy because he and Claire are done having kids and can't wait to be empty nesters who can travel and do exotic things and see the world (much like my recent trip to Mexico).They keep saying "five more years!" Of course, by the end of the episode, they realize that seeing the world is overrated and that true happiness comes from their kids. They decide they don't want Phil to get a vasectomy.

Also, Gloria, who is in her mid-forties, is accidentally pregnant.

Not a great show for an infertile these days. But the good news is I was more annoyed than sad.


  1. I was JUST about to write about this!

    We watched last night and afterwards I turned to Bub and said "shit, I don't know if I can watch this show anymore". Which is SUCH a bummer - it's one of my favorite shows!

  2. We watched it last night too. The hubs and I turned to each other a lot through the episode with the WTF glances....seriously they need to get this shit right if they are going to go there!!

  3. I didn't catch Modern Family last night, but based on what I've read about it lately, this is probably a good thing.

  4. Oh man, I was ranting to my husband about it. That show is now off my annoying when they proclaimed their jealousy for their friends who were infertile and child free. I wanted to throw my shoe at the tv.

  5. Seriously!

    I also made the mistake of downloading Call the Midwife from the BBC. It's sweet and all, but what was I thinking? It's a show about women helping one another give birth. Probably not the best viewing material at this point in my life.

    If Claire gets pregnant too the show has officially jumped the shark for me.

  6. I've been having the same trouble with watching that show too. It's just so unfair to see people being pregnant who aren't even trying. But it IS a huge improvement to feel more annoyed than sad. (((HUGS)))

  7. I just watched this episode and had to turn it off w my husband. I was googling around for just such a post. So offended- my husband went thru surgery to try to have a child, so the irony of a vasectomy is not lost on us. And, I found the jealousy over their friends who couldn't have kids hurtful.
