Tate would never publicly admit this, so I’ll do it for him, but he enjoys that show Jon and Kate Plus 8. Of course, he probably would never have purposely watched this show if it weren’t for me. We are both so fascinated by this show and how they function. ”Eight kids!” we say. “All those kids!” we say, shaking our heads in disbelief.
A good evening in the Binky Bitch household is when TLC or Discovery Health is playing a marathon of all the episodes!
I have so much I’d like to say about this show. Since it’s been some time since I compiled my thoughts in handy outline form, I thought I do that for you today.
I. Jon and Kate’s relationship
C. How DO they stay married?
II. Kate’s OCD and quirks
C. She makes me feel inferior that I have a mere TWO kids and can barely keep the house clean.
D. She scrubs the floor on her hands and knees MORE THAN ONCE PER DAY.
E. She took pictures of her kids’ first poo.
F. I would like to be friends with her.
III. Those kids are so freaking cute.
A. They never seem dirty or unkempt.
1. Where are their snotty noses??
B. They all speak so well…especially for being MEGA-multiples.
C. The kids are all pretty sweet to each other.
1. Maybe they are horrible when the cameras are turned off.
IV. They never eat out.
A. Kate cooks from scratch and mostly with organic foods.
1. Again she makes me feel inferior.
2. I would die if I never got to eat out.
a. Of course, I’d probably die if I had to eat out with 8 children.
B. Those kids have never had fast food
1. Or so Kate says
a. I don’t think she’s lying, though
2. Inferior! ME! We eat Chick-Fil-A weekly.
V. Jon is cute.
A. More importantly, he’s also a great Dad.
1. This is probably why I think he’s cute.
B. He is a saint for keeping his cool with Kate.
VI. They took the kids to Disneyworld
A. They drove there all the way from whatever northern state they live in.
1. Air travel would have been equally as HORRIBLE in my opinion.
B. They must be crazy.
C. How DID they SURVIVE?
1. Not only did they survive, they seemed to have….fun?
Discuss. Jon and Kate dissertations are due by 5 AM tomorrow. Pass the No-Doze!
(This wasn’t supposed to post until tonight…damnit.) (There is a post below this one that was meant for TODAY…I’m telling you this because the comments are hilarious!)
