So I've been thinking about blended families, and how they will affect our children.
I haven't been thinking about it in any deep and meaningful way mind you...just about how these poor kids may have to make a family tree for a school assignment one day.
Can you imagine that?
Here is a traditional family tree.

Pretty straightforward eh?
There may have been some slight differences...
Maybe even a new family member from a second marriage.
But all of it still pretty straightforward.
And then we get into my kids' family tree.
It looks like a nasty bush, or a tangled vine.
I think if they're given this assignment too young I might just lie.
How messed up is your family tree?
