Friday Faves- The Best Show Ever

Okay, the other night I got into bed really late and my husband had already fallen asleep watching TV. Jon and Kate Plus 8 was just starting. I ended up staying up 2 hours longer to watch 2 episodes of this awesome show. (I noticed last week that one of you had this show as one of your top ten faves. It's my favorite TLC show, but I just don't spend a lot of time watching TV and don't get to see it often.)

Anyway, isn't Jon and Kate Plus 8 the best show ever? It gives me feelings of comfort, humor, empathy, and most of all- gratitude. Gratitude that I don't have 8 children, 8 children under the age of 7, or 6 three-year-olds. Can you imagine? I love the Gosselin family! Jon and Kate crack me up. The kids are so cute, and so real! I can relate so much to Kate as a mom in some ways. She's amazing, and so down-to-earth. She inspires me, and makes me feel so blessed to have only 4 children!! I have a little girl that is just like their strong-willed, drama-queen Maddy, so it is comforting to see others deal with some of the same issues that I do. If you have never watched Jon and Kate Plus 8, record an episode and see it. If you're a mom you will love and appreciate this show!

My top 5 fave cable/satelite networks are Discovery Channel, Discovery Health, TLC, HGTV and National Geographic.



  1. I am glad you are enjoying this show. I assume you have only seen a few episodes. Take it with a grain of salt, it's not "reality", it's a TV show. Don't let Kate make you feel inadequate. She has a hard job, but she has a LOT of help. Just do a few internet searches. I found her so distasteful, especially the way she treated her husband, that I went online to see if she was driving anyone else crazy like me, and no, I was not alone. And now I know how she "does it all", even taking some of the internet news with a grain of salt myself.

  2. I LOVE jon & kate plus 8! actually this summer i got to meet Jon, Cara, and Maddy! they came into my work because their family where on vacation at the beach of nc where i live! how cool huh!?! i was sooo excited!!!

  3. Wow, I'm going to have to go read the internet reviews. Yeah, she is pretty brutal to her husband! That poor man. He seems really patient and easy going though- thank goodness for her!! Yeah, I'll bet she gets help. How could you NOT with all those little ones underfoot?

  4. Alex- That's cool that you got to actually meet them! Where do you work?


Thank you for your comments!
