Cute family show

This show somewhat reminds me of Cheaper By The Dozen with the chaotic large family life. I found this on Disney+ and I’ve actually enjoyed watching it as an adult as well. Some children’s shows can be a bit on the annoying side, but this one isn’t. I rated it 2+ as I have a toddler and there hasn’t been anything that I felt uncomfortable with her watching.
