What happens when a single mom of eight gets sick? Well apparently if you live in Kate Gosselin’s sprawling Pennsylvania home, the kids take over. I mean literally. After Kate retreated to her bed with sickness recently her kids proved that they have done an awful lot of growing up since her last serious bout of sickness a few years ago.
In her mommy blog over at The Stir Kate talks about her kids not only cleaning up after dinner, but then checking up on her, one at a time. Being a typical mom, Kate at one point finally got up to make sure that the house was still standing. “As I slowly walked through, I was shocked — and impressed — that the house was standing and no worse for the wear. In fact, it was cleaned up and the lights were even turned off . This is so different from those first five years.”
In those first five years of motherhood, if Kate got sick I’m sure the whole house and the babies schedules completely went to hell. It is great to watch your kids grow and be able to handle life’s curve balls such as sickness. Aside from being sick, Kate has had a good couple of weeks. Her appearance on Celebrity Wife Swap was a success. Instead of coming across like a snippy control freak, Kate carried herself like a smart single mom of many that knows better than to take things for granted. The press had vilified her for doing another reality show but the product itself was probably one of her best television ventures.
Kate is one of those people that has actively been trying to repair her public image. Is it working or should Kate give up already and just go raise her family in private? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
