Yeah I hear ya, but it's not THAT bad, it just a normal family thats all. She can be a bitch to her hubby, as we all can at times ya know? I wouldnt not watch the show b/c of it, its not like they "throw down" during the show, its normal bickering stuff, that's dropped just as quick as it started. Eg: if one of the kids is outside and has to go pee, Kate will say to Jon "Jon, take Alexis in to pee..." and Jon is usally dilly dallying so Kate will yell "JONNNN HELLLOOOOOO TAKE HER TO PEE BEFORE SHE PEES HERSELF!" The parents are loving and do so much for their kids, constantly loving them.

I just watched 4 episodes in a row last night. I record them because DH doesn't really like watching it. I watched the episodes where the little kids got new beds. Crazy!

How would you like to walk into a furniture store and see 8 little kids running around trying to pick out their new bed. They were cracking me up!!

I know - they're crazy! But I guess when you live with them and you're use to them, it's nothing to all pile in the car and go to the store.

I do watch the show often, but it does sometimes amaze me how much they stress the "8 kids". What is bigger is that they are all the same age!

 

I come from a area with lots of good catholics. Most of my parents friends came from homes with 5+ kids. One of my friends is one of 12!

 

These are kids who were raised in small homes with one bathroom!

 

I'm not saying that she doesn't work hard or that I would trade places, just that lots of people have lots of kiddos.

I guess we don't know if we can handle it (having a small family in a big home) until you have to! My fiance and his twin brother and sister had to share a bedroom growing up that was the size of most walk in closets! He says it made them much closer. I am sure the Goslins will be close as well!

I love the show! Alexis is the cutest and just brightens my day! My mom loves the show, too and my sister just started watching. My family had 3 kids but some of our cousins came from families from 6, 9 and 13 kids! But my mom says to have 6 kids at all the same age is tough. When you have a big family, like our cousins, the older kids end up helping with the younger ones to keep the parents sane. My mom owns a daycare now in her retirement (I think secretly to get ready for my babies - talk about pressure!) and she has no more than 6 kids at one time with two caretakers. Its fun to go visit but its exhausting!

I just read in my US Weekly that Jon and Kate renewed their wedding vows in Maui on Aug. 12th.

 

I wonder if TLC foot the bill for that also?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
