    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?
