Hello world! Meet the Brody Bunch.

To decompress, I shop at markets and cook big meals. Love when a good evening with the kids ends with “Your Mamma Jokes.” Ummmm, your mamma cooked this!

 

I hope that I have a light at the end of my tunnel, lots of lights, pretty lights.

Baltimore, my hometown.

 

With two baseball players and two softball players and their Dad as Coach, this is my typical view in the Fall and Spring. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I am sure they meant Little League diamonds!

 

Welcome to www.brodybunch.com

Welcome to BrodyBunch.com!  I am Robyn Stevens Brody, your hostess.  

The Brody Bunch Cast of Characters

My immediate family consists of my husband, Mark, our four kids, each one year apart – YES YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY, and me.  We are blessed with our parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and family friends.  At family gatherings, I often think, “we are characters out of a sitcom, it’s a shame we don’t have a sitcom writer here.”

About Me

I am a Baltimore native, live and work in Baltimore City and just discovered Old Bay seasoning (think Maryland Crabs).  I see situations in a unique way, and survive day to day with humor.  The Orioles are my favorite team, excluding my own kids’ sports teams.  I love grocery shopping, farmers’ markets and cooking. Dabbling in freelance photography is my new escape. Chasing sunrises and sunsets is a spiritual release. I am on the go and find things to photograph [see me on instagram at rstevensbrody].  I love Baltimore, kid art and moments that make people happy. Sometimes, I am funny, too.

About Mark

Mark and I have known each other for 19 years.  He is soft on the eyes, has strong opinions, doesn’t give a shit about the small stuff, and he does not know how to use tools.  His family is his only priority.

About the Brody Bunch Kids – Four of them!

Our four children are ages 10, 11, 12 and 13, two boys and two girls (the boys are the bookends).  They are generally caring, pretty funny, community thoughtful, and smart people.  Kids numbers 2 and 4 love theater and singing.  The oldest has a deep love of sports, the other three kids are good athletes. Kid number 3 loves cooking and not cleaning up after her concoctions.  I can’t complain, because I trust that she will take care of me when I am old.

Background of how the Blog began

Creating baby books never took off for me, but writing did.  12 years ago, I began documenting conversations with our kids.  This working document, an unpublished book, is over 300 pages and it is referred to in our home as “My Penis Made Me Do It”.  When our youngest son was potty training, he had an accident.  I asked him what happened and he replied, “my penis made me do it.”  Ta-da!  While the book is in progress, the blog serves as our published anecdotes.

Usually I research things on end, but not when it came to blogging.  I am so new at blogging, and I just jumped in, I feel free and liberated and welcome you to join me.  If you want to laugh, cry and know you are not alone in the world of parenting, you found me. I am functionally dysfunctional. This is not a blog about advice, it’s about stuff that just happens.  We will touch on random daily issues which include: time on the little league diamond and soccer fields, carpool conversations, and questions raised while growing up and getting older.  Family dinners and holidays are well covered, including “Festivus”. There will be kid philosophy, love and some F bombs.  I explain myself as having an unlimited wristband for the hamster wheel of life, and it is quite a ride.  Welcome to the Brody Bunch!
