My Memorial Day was spent watching the Jon and Kate plus 8 marathon on TLC. I love this show (couldn't agree with you more Two Pretzels ). Kate Gosselin is an amazing woman. I have three to her eight and sometimes I feel like pulling my hair out. Her house is immaculate, I know what you are going to say. She has it cleaned so that they can film. I don't think that is entirely true. I have seen enough of the show to know that she is a bit of a clean freak. In that respect we are a lot alike. However she has the patience of a Saint, something that I lack.
After watching the show and seeing how they handle eight children under the age of eight, I feel inspired. If they can do it with eight I can certainly do it with three. Granted she has the help of family and friends, again something I am lacking, but not all the time. Love her or hate her, what she does on a daily basis is truly amazing. She is so organized and put together, I strive to be as great as she is. I love that she and Jon have a plan. They plan everything, (they kind of have to). Plus I love the banter between Jon and Kate. It reminds me of Chad and myself.
So many times I think that I can't do something because my children are holding me back, like shopping. I shouldn't give a crap what everyone else thinks of me or my children. We are a family and we go together.
