Life as a Writer, Disney World Cast Member, and
Big Sister through Foster Care & Adoption
Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I think my life is interesting. I really do. I mean, I don’t know anyone else who has had nineteen siblings, so I’d say my life is definitely unusual. But on a daily basis, the small stuff that everyone goes through? My life really isn’t anything big deal. But you wouldn’t believe the number of times people have told me and my parents that we should do a reality show.
Seriously, people think we should do a reality show. It’s crazy. I don’t know why anyone would ever care that much about my family. I think other people would be bored by us actually. It’s really just a lot of chaotic moments back to back, with little kids running around and older kids trying to get homework done. Yet people have really told us that we should look into putting our family on television. It’s insane!
I don’t think that we would ever do a reality show, even if we thought people would be interested in our family. If anyone is addicted to reality television, it’s me and my mom. So we totally understand how personal reality shows can become. And there’s just no way that we would want to put our family through something like that. I don’t want the whole world knowing how insane my hair looks when I wake up in the morning, or thinking poorly of my sister and I when we get into an argument before dinner. There’s no reason for our personal business to be shared like that. Plus, I’ll say again how uninteresting I think our lives are.
What do you think about reality television? Would you ever want to put your family on a reality show? Tell me why or why not in the comments!
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
