Old TV reruns

Oh my goodness!  I'm embarrassed to say I tuned into an old rerun of The Brady Bunch today and it was soooo dumb!   It wasn't just the 70's clothes or hairstyles or the slang (groovy, man!) but the plot was enough to make me groan and roll my eyes.  Oldest son Greg got grounded but found a loophole in the punishment.  Wise Dad let him think he'd gotten away with it but of course, Greg learned the error of his ways, apologized to Mom and Dad and the show ended with the moral of the story summarized by wise Dad with supportive Mom nodding and looking on.  The end.

Oh brother!  It's no wonder people make fun of that old 70's show!  In real life, problems don't get solved in 1/2 hour.  Consequences are often painful.  Parents and children (especially teenagers) are not always reasonable and rational. And,  who has a housekeeper!!!???

If your family isn't like the Brady Bunch, don't feel bad.  Feel glad!  I"d rather live in an imperfect world with an imperfect family in our imperfect home any day!  It makes life much more interesting and challenging!

Although a housekeeper might be nice...
