Remember Kate Reddy from I Donít Know How She Does It? The time-poor harassed mother of two was immortalised on screen by Sarah Jessica Parker. Now she is back with two teenagers, aging parents and a husband who has opted for lycra and a healthier lifestyle. After taking seven years leave Kate is back at work where it all started, lying about her age and getting liposuction in her lunch break.
Kate is 49, the looming fifty just around the corner. She hasnít eaten properly for days as she counts down to her school reunion. She tries to remember everything she needs to know, the perils of social media for her teenagers, the care needed for her in laws now her husband is unavailable to assist as he meditates on the art of mindfulness. Will she ever remember it all?
If you have teenagers you will recognise something of yourself in How Hard Can It Be? Kate Reddy sits firmly in sandwich generation that has to do it all, she wrestles teenagers out of bed in the mornings, organises care packages for ailing parents and works every day and night to pay the bills and keep, or attempt to keep, harmony in the home.
