John and Kate plus 8...how do they do it?

So, I watched the John and Kate plus 8 episode last night when they went to the Oprah show. WTH? She IRONS for these kids? Are you kidding me? I can barely pee without one of my TWO kids interrupting. What's with this ironing nonsense?
Of course, you know this tirade has been brought on by something...
My dear friend MommyDoc left me with her adorable four year old twins this evening so she could go be with her father who is having surgery. Play time, dinner, and bath went very well. Bedtime...well that was another issue completely. The twins had these super cute sleeping bags with their names on them, detachable unicorn stuffies...you get the idea. Of course, BabyGirl was having NONE of that. She HAD to have her OWN sleeping bag. Well isn't that just PERFECT. We don't have one for her, much less one that looks JUST LIKE the ones her friends have. SOOOO, after many tears (we're talking Oscar performance here, people) Dr. Daddy was off to Wal-Mart to buy a sleeping bag for her. Can we say DIVA? Freaking ridiculous. One of the twins decides she'll sleep beside BabyGirl and that will make everything better. NOTSOMUCH. Cause the other twin is then left ALONE. Which apparently has never happened. They sleep in the same bed, bless their hearts, and are always having the whole body contact thing. So then the first twin decides she really does need to be next to the second twin and they do the whole lovey dovey huggy thing and BabyGirl is totally left out and totally FREAKING out...AGAIN. Good God. BabyBoy is just lovin all of this cause he gets to hang out in his room playing Legos WAY past his bedtime. The whole scenario started at about 7:15...Dr. Daddy was still at work and had to go to WalMart on his way home...which was not on the way AT ALL. Sainthood, I'm tellin ya. It is now 9:00pm and I can say that they are all in bed...asleep. Lord only knows what psychological damage has been done...

Kate does NOT iron, Nana Janet does it all for her! She also has someone who folds for her. We should all be so lucky! Haven't you seen the title of my blog? Yup, I have no idea how she does it.

i Love reading about girls and all the drama. We are a boy household with just me so we never have that kind of drama!

Funny! Makes me feel a little less guilty about all the times we indulge our little diva for the sake of some peace and quiet;)

I can't watch Jon & Kate plus * - it gives me the willies! (My husband is named Jon & if we had 6 more children I would probably have to be put in the crazy house!)

Seriously, she gives us mothers of multiples a bad name. And she's a clean freak! How on earth does she do it? And get filmed doing it? They'd have to delete MANY a scene if they filmed my house!

She also makes homemade playdough for those 8 kids! WTH is right? Who has time for crap? I am lucky if my 4 girls get a homemade dinner!!
Love your blog!

What a night! Staying up building with legos sounds very educational to me. I don't think I have ever seen the Goslings (sp?) play with legos. I think the mess might just put Kate over the edge. I don't even know where our iron is if that makes you feel better! Enjoy your blog. When I get savvy enough I will add you to mine as a favorite.
