I Heart Kate (and her 8)

I'm sure many of you know about the reality show on TLC, Jon and Kate, plus 8. It's about a couple that has 2 sets of multiples, a set of twins and sextuplets.

I've just recently taken an interest in this show, and have the new season set up on my DVR. I caught a little marathon of some older episodes this weekend, and I'm absolutely amazed at this woman. I think I may have developed some type of little crush on her. Not the kind of crush that I have on Kate Hudson, and my Jennifers. It's not the kind of attraction that makes you questions your sexuality, but one of complete admiration. I find her complete "OCD-ness" of cleanliness, and organization comforting. This woman manages her 8 kids and still finds the time to mop her kitchen floors three times a day, usually on her hands and knees.

There is hope for life with multiples, although I still plan to keep my cleaning lady as long as Hubby says I can. I may admire her, but I ain't crazy!!

I'm sure you'll do fine (and not have OCD). I watched the marathon, too. I think her hubby's a saint! He's so laid back to her insanity.

Love the show...can't wait to see YOUR show in a few years! :)

I absolutely LOVE her too! And I love how cool and laid back Jon is. I think they're just the most wonderful couple and I totally want to be friends with them.

I share your crush!

And I'm glad Mary-Kate and Ashley's scare was just that! If those girls could just hang on for another week, you'd be in the good safe zone!

Ok - I saw that episode too when I was sick in bed for 6 days with the flu. Funny how different people's perceptions are - you admire her and I thought she was a time-wasting freak for washing her floors 3 times a day. Why do that?

I love that show, too! Kate is SO on top of everything and poor Jon is just trying to keep up.

Oh yeah, she's my idol. She also buys all organic food on a very tight budget- did you see that episode? I almost wept.

I too love her. I bet she's developing a weird following of mommies across the country!
