Here’s a breakdown of the MarMiz clan by the numbers: One baby, another baby on the way, one man-child, and THREE moms. If there’s one lesson to be learned from Miz & Mrs, it’s that moms are gonna mom. Here’s a list of 12 times that Marjo, Barb, and Maryse went into full, unapologetic mom mode.
That time Maryse announced her plan to throw Monroe a giant 1st birthday party (Season 2 Episode 1)
The Mizanins were preparing to leave New York City around the time of Monroe’s 1st birthday, but that didn’t mean Maryse was going to let her go without a party to mark the occasion. On the contrary, she wanted this party to be big. Which led The Miz to wonder: was she really throwing this party for Monroe, or herself?
That time Barb scared Monroe with her creepy doll collection (Season 2, Episode 2)
When everyone arrived at Rental MarMiz in Los Angeles, one of Barb’s first items of business was unpacking her giant doll collection and showing it off to Monroe. It was unclear who was more disturbed by the dolls, Monroe or Maryse.
That time Marjo unpacked her giant box of frog legs (Season 2, Episode 2)
Barb wasn’t the only one creeping out Maryse as everyone unpacked at Rental MarMiz. Maryse nearly barfed when Marjo told of her plan to put her giant box of frog legs—her favorite food!—in the freezer in anticipation of her “special supper.” Thus began the battle for the refrigerator.
That time Maryse learned about insane preschool wait times in L.A. (Season 2, Episode 2)
While exploring the neighborhood around Rental MarMiz, Maryse bumped into another young mother who informed her that preschool enrollment in town is extremely competitive—she put her own kid on the preschool waiting list when he was three months old. With Monroe past the one-year mark, Maryse called Miz immediately to voice her concern: “Mike, we have a problem.”
That time Maryse hired Monroe a Mandarin tutor (Season 2, Episode 2)
Maryse’s initial attempts to get Monroe onto a preschool waiting list fell short, but she wasn’t about to accept failure. So she decided to get creative—which meant hiring a Mandarin tutor to come to the house and teach Monroe a new language. If Monroe were trilingual—English, French, Mandarin—how could any preschool turn her away??
That time Monroe’s angel costume melted Maryse, Marjo, and Barb’s hearts (Season 2, Episode 4)
Maryse invited her friend Amanda over to get ready for their family photo shoot along with Barb and Marjo. When Monroe tries on her little halo, they could hardly contain their joy at the sheer cuteness levels. Later, Maryse laid out her vision for a “magical” family photoshoot: “I would like [my outfit] to be really dramatic.” The only person who didn’t seem particularly excited about the shoot was The Miz.
That time Marjo regaled The Miz with stories from her youth (Season 2, Episode 4)
The Miz made a mistake inviting Marjo to ride with him so he could drive in the HOV lane. Yeah, he got to skip traffic, but he also gave her an opening to regale him with her many, many stories. About working before school as a young girl, about growing up one of nine siblings… she could go on all day.
That time Maryse’s magical family photoshoot came to life (Season 2, Episode 4)
For a minute, it looked like the Mizanin family photoshoot wasn’t going to happen. But all Maryse’s stress and The Miz’s epic struggle to bring her angel wings were worth it in the end. The lighting was perfect, and Maryse’s vision for the shoot came to life, and it was every bit as picturesque as Maryse had envisioned.
That time Marjo told The Miz to wax his privates (Season 2, Episode 5)
When The Miz decided to get a mold of his body, he didn’t seem to understand that he would have to remove his body hair… all of it. Naturally, Marjo had to be the one to step in and inform him that he would have to wax his privates. Marjo doesn’t mince words.
Those times Barb’s cleaning obsession violated Maryse’s personal space (Season 2, Episode 6)
Barb doesn’t just want things to be clean. She is OBSESSED with the act of cleaning. It seems to cleanse her soul. Her love of cleaning knows no bounds… or boundaries, when it comes to Maryse’s personal space.
That time Marjo oxygen therapy mask weirded out The Miz (Seaosn 2, Episode 6)
At Rental MarMiz, The Miz, Maryse, and their moms found themselves in closer quarters than they had been in the Austin house. Case in point: when The Miz and Maryse tried to watch a movie after putting down Madison for a nap, Marjo decided to join them. Other things that joined them: Marjo’s chatter, her oxygen therapy mask to treat her cluster headaches, and the mask’s loud machine. So much for a movie.
That time Barb’s incessant squeegeeing ruined The Miz and Maryse’s romantic moment (Season 2, Episode 6)
The Miz set up a romantic little mid-day date with Maryse at Rental Marmiz: strawberries, alcohol-free champagne, and the courtyard all to themselves. Or, so he thought. Barb’s incessant squeegeeing up in the window really killed the vibe, making The Miz realize he and Maryse needed a Babymoon getaway if they really wanted quality time together. The moral of the story: never underestimate a squeegee’s ability to produce noise.
