When children bring home prizes and school projects, isn’t it the norm to keep all of that? I guess when you have eight children, it starts to get out of hand. According to Kate Gosselin, she doesn’t want reminders of her children’s accomplishments because it’s taking up too much space in the house. Um, that’s what storage is for?
Gosselin started tweeting about how school is almost out for the summer, and her children are starting to bring home all the school projects they have done over the last year. Gosselin says that she’s thinking of throwing out a few of the things, because it’s gotten too crowded. Again – storage.
She tweets, “Dear teachers-I’m 4ever grateful 4 all u do…HOWEVER,my house is now FULL of random books,artwork&papers! #trashbagsneeded #cantkeepitall.”
One of her followers was a teacher and jokingly replied, “Why do you think we send it home? Lol,” to which Kate replied, “uh huh, I got you pegged. Don’t worry ’bout that! Lol:)”
Yes, it makes sense for her not to want to have all the stuff around her house. But considering that this is one of the biggest reminders of their childhood that her children will have in the future, she has an obligation to them to keep this stuff safe. Or at least, not throw it away in the trash. But then again, what else would you expect from a former washed up reality star?
I get that a lot of parents throw this kind of stuff away and it’s ‘normal’ to not want to keep all of your children’s pet projects and drawings, but it means a lot to them, and thereby, it should mean a lot to you. Plus, it’s pretty obvious what she’s trying to do with all these tweets – make herself seem like a relatable mom. I wonder if her next job will involve blogging about childcare?
