Who watches Jon and Kate plus Eight?
I have loved this show from the beginning, and honestly, I think I liked it more then, then now. Why? Let me tell you.
1) Kate doesn’t seem to question anything she does as a parent. I realize she’s just trying to get through, but sometimes she just seems so self-assured I want to shake her. I mean, I talk a good talk when I’m with my kids, but get me with a friend or Drew and I’ll ask them all sorts of things about stuff I could do better.
2) Jon is now home all the time. This drives me crazy. Is he working any more, or are they just living off the show? If they’re living off the show I think the show ceases to be what it was before — them trying to survive with that many kids.
3) They’re doing SO many things totally out of the reach of most families (not to mention ones with 8 kids), and while they do it, they get a ton of “special” experiences that no one else can do. I’m not sure exactly what I’m getting from the show anymore (before it was learning to survive as a stressed-out mom and how it affects the marriage relationship — anymore, I don’t see that very much).
3) Kate’s hair drives me insane.
And yes, I do watch too much TV now that I’m pregnant. Thanks for noticing.
