Jon and Kate Plus 8 anyone?
Does anyone else here watch this show? My parents and I all love it so much. It's definitely my favorite reality tv show. Probably because everything about it is so real. We love watching the parents interact with each other. I have one friend who thinks the mom is rude, but I love how they're not like every other "perfect" couple on those types of shows, they're actually real people. And, they obviously love each other. The kids are so cute. And surprisingly well behaved for the most part. It give me hope after watching shows like Supernanny where parents don't even know how to handle three kids.

I watch the show! I think it's great to see 2 people with their hands soo full of little ones who can still laugh and enjoy life! I think Kate seems like a really good mom, she is more organized than I will ever be thats for sure!!

I watch it occasionally. I think Kate is rude sometimes, but really, with 8 kids who wouldn't be sometimes!? You can tell she loves her hubby and kids.

I am always amazed that they didn't have much help and are raising such nice kids. And it's also amazing that she feeds them so well w/o fast food or junk food when her time is so limited. I wonder if she sleeps. :teehee:

I watch it when it's on, I don't like John though... He seems to not like being tied down like that. But other than that it's an ok show...

My daughter and I love this show!! You are right Jan who wouldn't be rude? I am amazed they are so organized. Did you see the episode with all her posti notes? (it was when the little ones were babies, before it was a series)

I catch it when I can, too. I can't imagine what MY house would look like if I had her job. :ick: She washes the floor 186 times a day!

Pictures of the first potty poop? I'd skip that one.:teehee:

I watch it and I really enjoy it. Monday nights are TLC night at my house. Between them and the Rohloffs, you have a very nice night of entertainment.

Kate is a bit abrasive but she is balance by how laid back Jon is. She was annoyed with his breathing and so he puffs out his cheeks and holds his breath. :thumbsup:

Just can't drum up any enthusiasm for it.

I swear, I would be Kate if I had that many kids. Both of them love each other and the kids, and if John seems a bit distant, I think he makes up for it w/ the pancakes on the w/ends and the extra stuff he does. You do also have to understand that when Kate is frustrated/angry/upset it isn't always the kids, did you all see the extra show where they showed the camera and production crew in the house??? I think I would lose it way sooner than she did!
