We all remember the Brady Bunch, but what does the modern-day blended family look like? Today Meagan and Busy Dad‘s Jim Lin discuss what it’s like to mix five kids from two different sets of parents – ages preschooler to teenager – in the same blended household and still keep everyone happy. We also discuss juggling work and life, long commutes and other tradeoffs, the realities of multitasking, and how technology can help us keep all those balls in the air.
