Kate Chapman from This Life In Progress reads her essay ‘What The Brady Bunch Taught Our Blended Family’ and talks about how the popular sitcom from the 70’s unexpectedly helped pave the way for a major transition.
Call me Kate. My husband Gabe and I live on the East Coast with the six children in our modern-day Brady Bunch: Simon, Sara, Caden, Amy, Lottie and Jack. Our blended family of eight lives on our suburban mini-farm with our French bulldog Miller, six hens, and various other assorted pets (today, a hamster and a colony of bees. There’s a campaign underway for parakeets, but I digress).
We’re sharing our story, tips and tricks and failures too, so that other families affected by divorce and remarriage feel less alone. Is that you? You’ve found your tribe!
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest on our blended stepfamily adventures, up to the minute hilarity, and tips and tricks for families of all kinds. Need help?
