Kia’s Dream Come True: working with and receiving a voicemail message from Maureen McCormick, aka Marcia Brady. Growing up Kia was forbidden to watch more than one episode of The Brady Bunch per day, because her dad said she was loosing touch with reality. One question about why her dad didn’t walk through the door everyday at 6 on the dot, saying “honey I’m home” limited her Brady Bunch intake.
After receiving a message from Marcia Brady herself, Kia was happy to announce to her dad that all those hours of hanging with the Brady’s wasn’t done in vain.
Marcia Brady was her reality:)
