Heeheehee, I saw that episode when she got upset with his breathing. I think they're really great for each other. Both balance the other out. I do think it's great when she smacks him. He probably likes it.

Did anyone see the episode where they go to the zoo, and see the penguins? And, Kate starts talking about how the one penguin probably thought the kids were also penguins, and Jon just starts rolling his eyes. I love it!

I used to watch this show all the time, but I'm kind of bored with it now. I guess I watched too many of the marathons.

I love it too. I saw the episode where they went skiing in Utah.Cannot imagine taking that many kids anywhere. I think the parents are great considering they have eight kids. And none of the children have any health/developmental issues as far as I have seen. That's a BLESSING. Hopefully it will get easier as far as the kids being able to do things for themselves. Can you imagine having 8 teenagers!!

On the birthday episode they said niether of thier parents are involved in their kids life. I wonder what's up with that? Thier parents don't approve of thier interracial marriage? They're dead? They're too old to travel? I wonder.......

I watch the show and enjoy it, but I wish she would lighten up. Not letting the kids walk on hotel carpet?!? Or throwing a fit cuz the jackets didn't go with the 4th of July outfits! Or the ice cream drips at WDW! Or, the mid-pumpkin carving hysteria about the "mess!"

8 kids or not, my husband would not be very happy about me
yelling at/belittling him in public. There is an appropriate time and place for that sort or thing.

Kudos to her tho' for the junk food avoidance. It just goes to prove that you're never too busy to make sure your kids eat healthful.

My mom and I LOVE this show. We call each other and chat about it every week. She things my husband and I are like them. Nah. Not even close!

We also wonder what's up with the parents. I think Jon's parents are far away, but you'd think they'd at least visit. Maybe they just don't want to be on TV or don't approve of them doing the show. I'd love to know, but then again, if they don't want to talk about it, it's not really any of our business. I'm sure if we'd dig deep enough, someone somewhere has more information....

From the snippets they show on the ads I don't think it would be something that interests me. I can see how it would appeal to someone with kids though.

I have kids and it doesn't appeal to me...

Yep! I watch it every week. I watch Little People first then Jon & Kate. I find it annoying sometimes, but for the most part I like seeing what it's like raising sextuplets. I couldn't even begin to imagine what that would be like.

AND what kind of person I would turn into. Sure, Kate acts like a whacko when she's yelling about the outfits and such, but I try and imagine what happened up until that point where she loses it over something so trivial. The editing dept is fantastic. They make her look like a tyrant 90% of the time. I'm sure she's not that way all of the time. If she were, her children wouldn't voluntarily give her hugs and kisses all the time.

Just my opinion. I could be completely off base.
