A Blended Family Dream Shattered: Is She Living in a Fantasy World? 🌈🏡

Our protagonist's sister had a dream - a dream of a perfect 'Brady Bunch'-style blended family. But when her sons Noah and Adam, who had a history of conflicts, expressed their desire to do their own thing rather than spending the summer together, her dream started to crumble. She believed that becoming brothers should have erased any animosity between the boys. But when she shared her belief that the boys had started to love each other once the fighting stopped, our protagonist couldn't help but tell her that she was living in a fantasy. This led to an accusation of being mean. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🕵️‍♀️
