Jon and Kate Plus 8

Do any Mom's out there watch this show? You must give it a try. If you have a DVR or Tivo, record it and watch while you are folding laundry at night. It makes my job as a Mom seem a bit easier after watching this woman with 7 year old twin girls (not for sure on the age) and sextuplets that are 3. Can you imagine?
As I was laying in bed on Monday night sick and watching the first episode, I was wondering what she does when her kids get sick and pass it on to each other. Sure enough, the next episode was ALL of them getting the stomach flu. It took 2 weeks to get everyone well. My "woe as me" attitude got a little bit better.
I think Jon and Kate's marriage is very healthy and the way they interact is great. I think they are Christians from a few things that have been said. Kate is so organized. Wouldn't you have to be? The show reiterates to me that God gives you only what you can handle. Obviously, he knew that I was not up to the task. (never speak to soon, right?)

I'm pretty sure that my two boys are enough for me, but maybe I'll feel like I can handle more after Jackson potty-trains and Cooper starts walking himself to the car.

You're the second person to suggest this show to me in the last couple of weeks. I'm curious to check it out now.

I read a blog by a woman pregnant with her 12th baby. She amazes me and makes me feel like I'm going to make it.

Love it! They had a New Years Marathon (all day)we watched it all! They even went to Disney! It is one show that we can all watch! They travel to many evangelical churches and speak (according to their website). Yes, I said we are freaks! Great to see a real family trying to raise great kids. If you don't understand them, have kids.
