Meet Chris. Husband to Katie. Daddy to Bean. Lover of power tools, Apple products, and pretzels. By day, Chris is the General and Production Manager at an Orlando regional theater where he is in charge of a big budget, a lot of employees, and making sure there are sets on the stage when the show opens. At night, he is in charge of dinner, feeding the dogs, and blubbering Bean’s belly. And when he has some spare time, he handles all the technical stuff and advertising for Marriage Confessions. In short, he’s a keeper.
His name is Michael, but the world knows him as Bean. Or Bean Man. Or Beaner Weiner. Or Bean Bag. Or Beanie. Or Bean Bean. He is a man of many names. He is also two-year-old man of two feet tall and a love of Tonka Trucks, dinosaurs, and Thomas the Train. He is a lady killer. A rebel without a cause. A (short) man who goes where he wants and does what he pleases. Until his Mom steps in and makes him eat his veggies or take a bath. His mom really cramps his style.
Meet Gracie. She joined the Brown clan in March of 2011 and has provided endless hours of entertainment since then. She wasn’t the easiest baby in the world, thanks to colic and reflux, but at four months old she started to come out of all that nonsense and hasn’t looked back. She’s not as laid back as her brother and has a fierce temper, but her big pudgy cheeks and gummy little giggle make up for that. In short, we’ll keep her around.
