The lady had sextuplets and twins!
Wow! And I thought I was busy!
Any thoughts about the show?

I love this show! My best friend and I were just talking the other day about new or different shows we liked and we both mentioned it. Mind you, we live 5 hours apart and hadn't talked in a while. We're not much alike.

Kate fascinates me. She's so organized (you'd have to be with 2 six year olds and 6 two year olds). However, her OCD drives me batty too. I just don't think it's necessary to wash the kitchen floor 3 times a day. The woman would freak if she walked in my house.

As for Jon, I like him. He seems a lot like my husband. If something is that important to me to do a certain way he lets me do it. They're such opposites.

That being said, I have to cringe at the way Kate snaps at Jon sometimes. Luckily, they seem to handle it well.

Can you tell I love this show?

Anyone ever seen Raising Kids by the Dozen or anything about the Duggar family (They have 16 children with #17 due in July)? Those shows are fascinating too!

I enjoy watching this one when I can remember it's on. I miss it more often than not, though. Gotta have the patience of Job with that crew.

Hi-
My DH and I just love that show. Think Kate's a little over the top with her organization and cleaning, but I guess with all those kids, it's a plus. Love her husband.

I enjoy the show and admire her for all the work she does to run her house. I know I couldn't do it and still be as sane as she is!

I love all those shows, and Little People/Big World, too. I am fascinated w/ the Dugger family. They were at the Wal-Mart in my town a couple of months ago. They attend a yearly conference just down the road from here. They were kind enough to line up for a photo in the Wal-Mart parking lot for our local paper before they left. Michelle was pregnant with number 17!

I watch this show and think it is amazing what she does. It is so funny too! She just gets on her husbands case about everything! Bless her and all mothers of multiples. I know I couldn't do it!

I've never seen it but this is the 2nd post I've seen praising it. It sounds like something I'd like so I've just put it into my Tivo.

Thanks for recommending it!

For some reason I'm fascinated with the Duggars as well. My DH hates it when I watch it because I end up going on and on about it!

Jon and Kate Plus 8 is one of my favorite shows haha I have my TiVo all set to record every episode that plays on TLC at any time! I have pretty bad OCD so I can emphathize with Kate on that end of things (though I don't think washing the floors 3 times a day would be my priority with 8 children). Did anyone see the episode where she was in the supermarket? How does she feed a family of 10 on an average of $150 a week? Amazing.

hate the sextuplets/twins show

don't like that little people show either , not because they are little people but their personalities just irritate me. They are always argung about something.

don't like the Duggars shows either--just boring

I don't think they've decided on a specific date yet ... and they keep saying that the show is going to air on the Discovery Health Channel, but the links to all the schedules go straight to TLC so I'm a little confused. I'm just going to stay on the look out for it, that's all. Did you know the sextuplets are 3 now? So cute!

The Kate and Jon show is somuch fun! I do wonder how he puts up with all her crap though. She is at him on EVERY show at least twice! Their income must be great with the way they dress their kids and their house!
The Duggers realy fascinate me too. I did not know that 17 was due! I always wanted to be from a big family! One of my aunts is from a family of 16 kids too! How does she stay so clam and educate all thekids like she does?

My sister has two sets of twins, and let me tell you: that is enough!!

It really takes a special person to be able to handle multiples!
Speaking of which, I already mentioned about my sister, and now my cousin just had twins yesterday. !!! This makes me a little nervous...with twins running on both sides of my family...oh boy.

That being said, I'm sure it is tiring and stressful to have so much to do all the time, but she sure DOES snap at her husband a lot. And I'm not trying to judge, but it just seems like she's in a bad mood with him a lot of the time. I actually kind of felt bad for him the first time I watched the show because it seemed like she was on his case a lot.

Anyway, definitely an interesting show to watch!
