Jon and Kate plus 8...

Ok, I know that I am not the only one out there that watched the 5th Season Premiere of Jon and Kate plus 8 last night. With all of the talk going on I am sure many tuned in to see what all the hoopla was about. I watch their show pretty regularly. I too tuned in to see how they are doing. I am not going to pass judgement on the choices they have made. I do not know what it's like being them but I do know what it's like raising the children we have. Having multiples is HARD work! Not only hard work but EXPENSIVE! I could not imagine how they would ever cover all their expenses if they did not have TLC asking them to do a TV show! WOW! They say that the struggle of trying to get pregnant and/or having multiples can make or break a relationship! It's tough & I totally feel for them! Yes it's a shame that the entire world is watching their struggle. But I look at it very differently. I see this as an opportunity for them to show us, me, how to work through the good, the bad & the UGLY! To be there with them as they deal with their issues and come out stronger. I have so many people that give me unsolicited advice like they know how it is to raise quadruplets. This is unlike anything we have ever been faced with. I learn tips from the "pro's", those parents that have come before me that did this job. So I ask everyone to hold off judgement of the Gosselin's and let them figure out what is best for them. I just hope that there are many more years of...

I did a blog post about the show last night, and my biggest problem with Jon and Kate is that it seems like Jon is over being so exposed, and Kate is still loving it.

I really think that if that is the biggest part of their conflict, they need to end the show and concentrate on being a family. I can't even imagine how stressful it is to have multiples, but if the show is adding to the stress, then they should just walk away.

HI I HAVE FOLLOWED YOUR BLOG WHEN I FOUND IT ON THE BLOGLIST FROM SUZ. I SAY THAT THEY NEED TO FIND THE PATHS OF EACH OTHER AND TRY TO WORK IT OUT.

Cathy, that was very well put. I too am curious to see what happens. I don't watch the show, but have loosely followed it.
Hope all is well for you & your family! And yes, multiples are stressful & expensive!!!

I couldn't have said it better myself, Cathy! I was so sad watching the show! Raising children is the hardest job I have ever had! It is a lot of hard work...just as a marriage is hard work! Like you, I pray that they take this heartbreaking experience and turn it around. Show everyone that they WONT be a statistic! Prove to the world that raising multiples and keeping a marriage together IS hard work....but it can be done!
