It takes a devoted person to raise eight children with love, compassion, and patience. But after days of exhausting monotony, what parent doesn’t want a few days—or even just a few hours—of silence that is only broken by the tinkle of ice cubes bobbing up and down in a vodka tonic? Kate Gosselin is no stranger to fatigue, and after weeks of jokes about being overworked, we think she may be in need of a court-ordered vacation.
The tired mom tweeted, “I’m taking a little rest 9while I wait4my bread to finish baking) before I start making dinner&packing lunches! Hoping house stays quiet . . .” A few questions: doesn’t it make sense to put the kids to work? She has two 12-year-olds, surely they can pitch in and assemble PB&Js! But what strikes me as most odd is that she really seems to be living hour by hour, and not in a savor each moment and make it last sort of way, but in a if each espresso shot gives me 48 minutes of energy, how many do I need each day, assuming that 4 hours a day will be spent burning 3 times as much energy per hour as the rest of the hours. Or something. Seriously, it’s like a math problem. We’re worried about Kate! Does she ever have a minute to just sit down and be?
Kate’s tweets about sleep are becoming more frequent. She shared another two today. The first: “Good dark and rainy morning every1! Today even I wished for a snow day..how nice it would have been to STAY IN BED! Awake now tho-lots2do!” Around 10pm, asked, “Is it pathetic that I get SO excited that I giggle ea day when enough (I’d say ‘everything’ but nvr so) is done & I can crawl in2 my bed?” Uhm, a little? No one should be that tired! We know ex husband Jon Gosselin isn’t a first-rate father, but surely he can keep the kids alive and healthy for 24-hours so Kate can have a break? With the kids, running a house, and contributing to The Stir, we think Kate’s reaching a breaking point. What do you think will happen if she keeps up this pace?
