The passage of time can be scary. Seems like only yesterday the sitcom Punky Brewster was on NBC-TV. Now considered an 80’s sitcom, it starred Soleil Moon Frye as Penelope "Punky" Brewster.  

In the show, her father walked out on her family, then her mother abandoned her at a Chicago shopping center, leaving Punky alone with her dog Brandon. Afterwards, Punky discovered a vacant apartment in a local building and took up residence

Now a mom of her own in real life, Soleil Moon Frye discusses her " Punky" days and motherhood.
