Kate Plus 8

So I have been an avid fan of this show until recently. I have been reading in several trustworthy tabloid magazines (lol) that they are talking about getting a divorce. Can you imagine the child support the man would have to pay...geesh. My issue with the show now is that it has strayed so far from the original version of their daily lives and how they managed. Now it is oh we are going to Hawaii, Utah, Colorado and buying a 1.3 million dollar house. I read her book and in it it did talk about all of the trials and tribulations in the biggining and how Jon kept losing jobs etc. But now I think they are profitting too much off their kids. I mean poor Collin when he is in highschool and his friends will see re-runs of the show of him sitting on the toilet. Then you have people like the Octo-Mom who I am sure loves her kids, but is already getting money deals and she would have to to support all of those children. It just seems like today's society is feeding into this massive family facination, where these poor kids are just victims who will eventually hate all of the crap that was aired on national television. But what are you going to do, the media is doing exactly what is expected...buying into it to sell just have to kind of feel sorry for the poor kids in all of this drama. And by the way I don't blame Jon for wanting to leave Kate although she has gotten much better, but I think he loves his kids too much and he is such an awesome Daddy. We'll see

On the only child front, Sage weighed in at 18 pounds 8 ounces, I think she is coming up fast behind Eli.

Katy and I were just talking about this earlier today lol. So funny. I personally think it's a bunch of rumors, but who knows. Either way it's sad because either the media is blowign this way out of proportion and is going to end up hurting this family in the end, or it's really happening and these kids are going to have to go through a divorce. Hopefully it's the first of the two! Thanks for the comment. I think you're a great momma too, and I love you guys so much!

The problem I have with the Octo mom is that she is one selfish person. Love is not a feeling. Love isn't 'oh my I'm so glad I have these cute little babies so I can achieve fame". Just read the 13th chapter of 1st Corinthians. Pay special attention to vs. 3,4,and 5. She doesn't show any of that. In fact the way she acts flies in the face of it. I think those kids shouldn't come home from the hospital until they are placed in a loveing home elsewhere.
By the way, now that I'm done with my rant, wow!!!!18 lbs. What a big girl. Hope to see you soon.

I literally was sick to my stomach when my friend mentioned the John and Kate thing. Wow, that is so sad and crazy! I sure hope it's a rumor for everyone's sake! The media sucks, I wish they would stay out of people's lives, but then again, I guess when you are a family who chooses to put your daily life on national TV that's the risk you are taking! Poor kids...
Wow, Eli will be weighed next week, I'll let you know what he weighs in at! :)

I'm kind of in the dark here! lol Who are "John and Kate"? It sounds like one big soap opera! It's tragic when people use their lives and kids to promote wealth and fame. Don't know if that's the case, but it sounds like it. The victims are the little ones. I have to agree with Dana on the "Octo-Mom". She's a nutcase, to begin with, and is clearly not able to provide for and nurture her brood. It's not the responsibility of the State to take care of them, nor should they go back to her. I, also, believe that the babies should be given to families who will love, provide for their special needs, cherish them, and raise them the way they should be raised. If not, these babies will only become media sensations and have no hope for a peaceful future. How sad.

18 pounds! Wow! What a little mintermouse! Wish I could see her :o(

Love ya!!

I hadn't heard about the rumors. I hope they are just rumors. I totally agree with you that our society has gotten a little too voyeurish. ( I totally just made up that word LOL) I'm trying to remember that when I'm writing my blog~ trying to be sensitive to my kid's privacy.

When it comes to these reality TV shows~ Who would want their lives on public display like that? All of these kids are going to grow up with the same problems as child stars I think. Sad.

I think Ben-Ben weighs around 20 pounds now, Ha Ha. Sage must be such a petite little thing. She sure is a beauty! : )
