Eight is Enough
Shows I was watching in the seventies is my theme for the A-Z challenge this April.
I was an only child back when this show was on, so can you just imagine the envy I had for those Bradfords? Of course I also spent a portion of each daydream crushing on Adam Rich with that awesome hairdo, but despite Nicholas being more my age, Grant Goodeve's David was simply dreamy. (Sorry Tommy, I just didn't like you like that.) He even got to sing the words when they added them to the theme song.
Mary, Joanie and Nancy seemed nice enough, but Susan was super awesome. Remember when she landed Merle "The Pearl"? (Sorry Tommy, he bumped you down to fourth.) That leaves one more sibling, the one I wanted to paint my nails and share clothes with the most - Elizabeth. I thought she was all that.
Go on and spend your day like a bright and shiny new dime, and keep that plate of homemade wishes on your kitchen window sill.
