For those of you who don't know, I have my own Brady Bunch. I have my three beautiful girls and Omar has three fabulous boys. Just like the show!!
Most of the time we are not all together, but when we do all meet up we have some very interesting moments. This last week we took the girls down to Texas... so the Brady Bunch was reunited! There, of course, isn't a dull moment (or a quiet one) to be found.
Most of the bunch is pretty close in age. We have two 14 year olds , one 12 year old, two that are 10, and the littlest brings up the rear at 4. The older they get, the more expensive it is to have them together. Just trying to feed them will break the bank!! The two oldest boys ( especially the oldest) could eat a whole cow for dinner. No joke - they are bottomless pits. My girls aren't much better.
We've been pretty thrifty with the activities for the group. Been doing lots of swimming and watching movies at the house. I think all the kids are having fun since we haven't heard any complaining.
Everyone in the bunch has been getting along great. Gone are the days of the power struggle between the oldest boy and oldest girl! It is nice to see them being good to each other. They all spoil the youngest... she must be in heaven. And the 10 years olds love to explore together.
Having everyone together is very tiring and hectic for Omar and I, but we definitely are not complaining. It is nice to be able to have the families together. It gives the illusion that we have normal lives - even if its only for a week or two at a time.
We should have our own show on TV. The modern day Brady Bunch. We could put a great spin on the original.
Is your life like any TV show? If you and your family had their own show what would it be called?
