School Days Recap

Judging by the comments I read here before I watched the episode, I had no doubts a trainwreck awaited me before I even hit play on the DVR. But hey, at least I had Kate pitching things down the stairs in yet another hissy fit to look forward to. That was sure to be a high point in the latest TLC disaster of an episode. But would it also be the episode low point? continue

I am a dietician... said...

1 - I think a half of a sandwich is fine. I am almost 30 and I only eat half a peanut butter sandwich for lunch. I balance that with servings of vegetables, fruit and calcium. There are a lot of carbs in bread, and type 2 diabetes is on the rise in the US. I don't fault her for that. There seemed to be a variety of things in the lunchbox to eat with the sandwich.

2 - I also don't see a problem with her teaching the kids to eat the nutritious items before they eat dessert. Mainly for the same reason I stated above. Kids need to learn better eating habits. If they attack their dessert and some chips, then they are eating all carbs and no protein or vegetables to slow the digestion of the sugar.

Ok so I posted this on a different thread and I think I should have poted it here.

I have a question when kate was talking about the twins room and what a disaster it was she said that it was to bad it was against the law to film in the kids room and so we could not see how bad it was. Is this a new law because before they moved to their new house they filmed in the kids room in most episodes. I was just wondering.

If its not really a law you have to wonder if maybe kate was over reacting alittle. Not that she would ever so that ;)

Swissmiss said...

I think Jon pulls the weekend duties with the kids, doesn't he?

That would be best. The kids at least are at school a lot of the time when Kate is living with them, so they have a means of 'escape.'

My guess is that she will try and send the kids to school 5 days a week so she doesn't have to deal with them as much. How pathetic. They grow up so fast.

Kate throwing down the twins' stuff reminds me of that scene with Joan Crawford yelling "no more coathangers." Scary, scary.

What happens when the camera crew has gone home? Thank God for school.

Liv's Mommy said...

First of all I would like to say thanks to all of you for your insight pertaining to peanut allergies. I had no idea that it was so severe. I thought reactions were only if a peanut or peanut product were eaten. I at first found myself extremely irritated reading that some schools ban pb stuff. I thought bs if my kids wants to take a pb sandiwch to school in her lunch she will. BUT after reading here I am now educated on how bad it can be for others. Ecspecially after reading the story about the kid upstairs and the pb jar opened downstairs. WOW that's rough. Again thank you all for pointing this out to me!
Secondly I think that the ratings are up this week and probably will continue to go up the next few because of 2 things...
1. This is THE END and people will watch to see how they end this
2. Didn't the judge tell Jon and Kate not to go airing their dirty laundry on TV shows - a sort of Gag order (I think I read something about this here on another topic but lately there has been so many topics and comments I can not possibly keep up with all of them). But if this is true then the show is all that people have to watch the train wreck through these days.

Anonymous said...

Haha! J&K have separate interview chairs now. Maybe I just noticed it?? Jon sits in a brown leather looking, "more manly" chair now.

Kate and the kids' interviews are on the white chair and ottoman with a red throw over the top. (Her books prominently displayed on the bookshelf behind).

Tie Your Shoes Kids said...

Schools cannot deny children entry into kindergarden because they don't know how to tie their shoes.
............................
That's a requirement in this part of the U.S.A. It's a given that they must have learned how to tie their shoes prior to entering Kindergarten. Although you're right that they cannot be denied entry into the school if not learned.

___________________________________
that only pertains if you have shoes that need to be tied. If you have velcro shoes no one is going to give you a lace up sneaker and make you tie it. The point is not so much that you have to know how (although you should), the point is that the teacher is a professional who should be teaching and not tyings shoes all day.

harrah said...
Schools cannot deny children entry into kindergarden because they don't know how to tie their shoes. That is unfair and insane. Yes it's a basic skill that most people learn by age 7 but it has nothing to do with a child's ability to learn how to read or write. I imagine the school board would be hearing from angry parents if this was the district's policy.

----------------------------------

There are just so many issues with Kate and she always seems so PROUD of herself in a strange out-of-touch way. If she had said "Only velcro shoes - we really need to make learning the tie shoes a priority!" and then laughed it would have been normal and cute.

I also think the shoe store was a mess! These children are five and a half years old. At this age, most children are in a kindergarten with a teacher/child ratio of 1/20, so being able to sit and wait your turn to try on shoes does not need to be chaos.

AZ Mom said...

Reading about being able to tie shoes reminded me when 2 of my children were in pre-school they were taught to tie their shoes. My left handed son was taught by a right handed teacher and my right handed son was taught by a left handed teacher. Otherwise they learned the opposit way. Both looked awkward. To this day it is amusing to see them tie and they are in their 30s.

The Control Queen Ate Well said...
I was sickened to see Kate sitting at the table eating her full plate of Marinara Sauce & pasta, with a side of something else nutritious, while the kids ate the PB&J half sandwiches & whatever else she threw into the lunch boxes the night before. WTH? It seems it was more about laying down the law, so they knew their lunch rules at school. Control, Control, Control.

*******************

Watching Kate eat, shoveling food into her mouth, chewing her cud like a farm animal (my apologies to cows and pigs everywhere for the comparison) makes me sick to my stomach. Such an ungraceful, tacky woman. Yuck.

karma said...

In her couch interviews, kHate is just so completely FAKE. She's trying really, really hard to appear happy and be likeable.

Sorry, khate, it's not working and it never will. America sees through you!

kay said...

I laughed when I saw the copy of the book Kate "wrote" used as a prop while she was on the interview chair.

Please, w&*#@ yourself out a little more!

Babs said...

Thanks for the great recap. Much better than watching that snoozefest.

When my children were younger, I would not purchase velcro shoes or digital watches. They had to learn how to tie their shoes and tell time on a clock. My daughter is 24 now and jokes about how I was the mean Mom who wouldn't buy the cool velcro shoes. But by golly, she can tie her shoes and tell time. :)

" I've never seen a Kindergarten, public or private, that doesn't have a check list of skills children have to master before acceptance. One of the most important skills on every list is tying shoe laces."

My kid started Kindergarten in August. Neither him nor my older daughter had to know how to do this before going in. Both are in private school. And public schools have no guidelines for entry besides age and location.

Annies said...

I,ve been to the Promenade Shoppes in Center Valley, PA. Not sure why she drove all the way up there from Wernersville. I thought the place was trendy and expensive. Other than the Red Robin, all the restaurants we peeked at had prices starting at about $35.00 an entree. Nice place, but not the Reading, PA crowd LOL.

simple pleasures said...

We Don't Chew Gum When We're 3 said...Also, why have these kids never been to a shoe store, but have been to lavish vacations, spa's, trips to the moon and more? Your really a pathetic waste of flesh Khate!!
---------------------------------
I thought the same thing. I used to work for a woman who had 3 kids. Every year the kids each invited a friend and we all went to Six Flags. One of the friends invited one year was a little girl who spent summers abroad with her parents. She had seen the world, but had never experienced something as simple as Six Flags. Sometimes parents get so wrapped up in the "culturing" of their children that they forgot the simple pleasures in life. However I think Kate is just too damn exhausted (read lazy) to do normal activities with her children unless she's being paid.

I don't mind that children are taught to eat their sandwiches and veggies first, then dessert. It's a great thing to learn.

My problem was in the way Kate was teaching this. She was barking this lesson from across the room while she stirred up her own lunch. I wish she would learn to talk to her children, give them gentle instructions and not run her house like a military camp. How difficult would it have been to wait until she was finished stirring and plating her lunch and then address the subject of how important it was that they eat the more nutritious portions of lunch first.

These children got all excited about "I LOVE SCHOOOOOOL!
I LOVE SCHOOOOOOL!". Couldn't Kate have done a similar thing with the Order Of Lunch Consumption? "SANDWICH FIIIIIRST!
DESSERT COMES LAAAAATER! A fun way to drill home a lesson Kate wanted them to learn. Or anything would have done better than yelling her orders into the stove backsplash.

____________________________
Yes, it's just sickening. She chews with her mouth open and so do the kids. Kate's so caught up in her fame, it makes me wonder if she even realizes how the kids are coming across on TV? When Kate tries to "lay down the law", she just yells in such an aggressively harsh way. Does she ever speak softly or kindly or even display any patience?? No. Lately she's taken up drumming her fingers against her face when stressed.

she is evil said...

How sad that Kate didn't find her kids worthy of eating pasta for lunch with her. Did you notice how the kids just poked at their mushy sandwiches? Aaden took a bite of his hesitantly, as if it were gross, I'm sure just so he could get to the organic rice krispy treat and cheetos.

What I found saddest of all is that none of the kids protested that Mom got to eat a hot lunch, which must have smelled great, while they got to eat day old crap sandwiches. My kids would have asked for some of the good stuff if I had been too stupid not to offer some in the first place. The poor tups have learned not to complain or protest with Kate; that they're SOL. Asking to not have to eat those nasty sandwiches, which probably had more bacteria than a petri dish a day after being made, wouldnt have gotten the tups what they would have preferred (a hot meal) and would have angered the cloven footed one as she shoveled the good food into her mouth and gloated about ditching the paparazzi with her preschoolers.

Tuesday said...

Tying shoelaces seemed to resolve itself in the smaller town school that our children attended. Teachers refused to tie shoes. They would NOT do it. Graduating kindergaten children became very self-aware that velcro shoes were "babyish". One of mine was still 5 at the end of the first year and picked up on it, commenting to me about who knew how to tie and who didn't. At the end of each day positive reinforcement was given to both children and parents waiting outside the door for pick-up (required), naming the children that made it through half a day with shoes still tied. It became a fun kind of game for parents waiting outside, and also a huge incentive. Teaching is such hard work. I would prefer that lower elem. teachers spent time teaching, not doing a parents job. Khate obviously doesn't have the listening skills or patience to pick up on cues from her children but I guess theres always the hope. JON? out there?

Yuck said...

The PB&J was made the night before, sat in the fridge all night, then was put into lunch boxes at 5:30 a.m., was driven to school, remained in the lunch boxes and then came home with the kids. Of course they were gross.

Pony said...

Things may have changed in the past 19 to 20 years, but shoe-tying was a big deal - once you got to kindergarten at my kids' school. There was a big, laminated shoe poster hanging from the ceiling in the classroom - and each kid got to put his/her name on it when they learned to tie their shoes. It was right next to the big tooth poster for when they lost their first tooth. ;) But nobody had to know how to tie shoes when they entered kindergarten. And to be honest, I don't remember if my kids knew how or not. They probably did - their babysitter was fantastic!

Peanut butter sandwiches - schools around here ban peanut products on a case by case basis. If a child has a severe allergy, then they are banned school-wide at small schools. If no children in the school have an allergy - no ban. And at the high school level, the kids are expected to be careful. Not sure what they'd do if a kid had the level of allergy where they can't be in the same room with a peanut.

Half sandwiches - I understand the dietician only eating a half sandwich - I do that myself. But them I'm a 50 something woman with low thyroid and have to count every calorie that goes in my mouth. Growing children could certainly use the protein and complex carbs from a whole sandwich made with decent bread. They need a lot more calories than most of us do. I just think Kate has been trying to keep the kids small so they'd look younger.

I agree. It is so sad, and just speaks volumes about their relationship with her.

Sometimes I make myself a different meal (I'm still a picky eater). I always make plenty because I will offer my food, or the main meal to my family. And if I forget to offer, my boys will ask if they want it. Or they will laugh and tease me that mine looks better than theirs, .... I must not love them, ..... I must think I'm a queen, ... etc!

I've often been bothered by how the kids are so obedient to Kate. Small children often test their parents, talk back to them, say "No" to them, ignore them, etc. I don't remember the children doing that when they were 2 - 3 yrs old.

Betty Crocker said...

I read this and then watched the recap online. You really hit the nail on the head with that one.

I think Kate really taught the twins never to ditch her to ride in Daddy's car again, right???

Aeris said...

It's funny to see Stride Rite get on the bandwagon with some more freebies in exchange for airtime. I grew up on those shoes in the 80's, they were all I wore until I got to junior high. By the time I was 10 or so, I started getting teased for it, with those snazzy "Zips" velcro shoes. Fun memories, lol.

I didn't watch this episode at all, but I did love the recap! Thank you. Against my better judgement, I went to the school's website and peeked around and found the lunch menu. They sell PB&J sandwiches in the cafeteria, so I don't believe there is a "no peanut" policy there.

ConcernedForTheChildren said...

I saw the recent episode of Jon and Kate and was absolutely SHOCKED at Kate's behavior (throwing Mady and Cara's items down the stairs). And then the way she THREW the sandwiches at the tups as if they were animals! Also, did anyone see how Kate pushed Joel away from the refrigerator? I really believe Kate is abusing those children. I wish there was something that could be done. Simply getting the children off television is NOT enough---Kate needs to be turned into the authorities!

Canadian Mom said...

I say....

Let the kids put Kate into a highchair, stick a bib on her, replace her heels with running shoes, tie the laces TOGETHER, and then proceed to throw day-old sandwiches in a baggie at her.

All while singing, "We love schOOoolll...."

EnjoyYOURSELF said...

"Then I went to the junior kindergarten info page and read "Due to the prevalence of severe reactions to peanuts in young children food containing any form of peanuts are not
allowed in the classrooms."

So I guess PB&J won't work for lunch"

Too bad because eliminate the peanut butter and you're left with 95% sugar in their lunch. And she's SO into healthy, organic foods. Blah!

EnjoyYOURSELF said...

"If they attack their dessert and some chips, then they are eating all carbs and no protein or vegetables to slow the digestion of the sugar."

I didn't see any veggies in that lunchbox.

And you would think she could give them money for milk at least. But no, it always has to be apple juice at every meal.

Teri said...

Is this a new law because before they moved to their new house they filmed in the kids room in most episodes. I was just wondering.

Corrin, it's not a real law, it's a KATE LAW, as in "laying down the law" with the film crew, blah blah blah. In her old house, it was a "law" that the crew had to remove their shoes... etc. Of course in that house the tups had studio lights installed in their bedroom ceilings and potty chairs were frequently filmed all over the house.

earth child said...

dorothy here
where is Waldo> I loved the "booby guard" designation. It is right on. How much money does he need to compromise his integrity as a true bodyguard? Is he really a baby sitter?

Peanuts yes, no?? said...

So one person says peanut butter is expressly forbidden on the junior kindergarten info page, and one says it is offered on the lunch menu. I checked and 1.) there is no junior kindergarten offered that I could see--just pre-k then k. 2.) PB&J is offered as one of the mixed hot and cold sandwich options.
There probably is junior kindergarten this semester since there are enough Gosselin kids to set up a whole class but it is not something offered as a general rule apparently.

Can't hide it said...

Kate can dress herself up and attempt to polish herself up, but when she sits at a table, all I see is a big SLOB.

stopthemadness said...

It's not important what order you eat your lunch in if it's all garbage. Sandwich first is only necessary if nothing else there has any nutritional value and for the "Supermom" and "Organic cook" to give them cheetohs and rice krispie treats is disgusting. Sandiwch, fruit, vegetables and milk. Go to any school and look at the menu - schools have to do the balanced meals, this is actually national school lunch week and the kids are learning about healthy lunches. Kate's does not fit. Add juice instead of milk and my teeth ache just thinking about the amount of sugar they get at a single meal, the lack of vitamins and vegetab les or anything they need to grow. 4-5 servings of fruit and vegetables per day, and MILK for growing kids.

Public schools in Texas don't FORCE kids to know how to tie shoes when they get in, just like they don't force them to know how to hold a pencil, write their name, count to 30 and recognize numbers and letters, shapes and colors, or to know how to sit down and raise their hands and take turns, even to be fully potty trained. They have to take kids with all manner of dysfunction and ability level. However they do provide you a list at Kindergarten round up that has the skills they'd like to see. I am guessing shoe tying is the least of those kids' problems. They certainly wouldn't hold them back from Kindergarten for THAT, but for the cognitive and social skills they were also failing to learn because they were busy getting culturized.

Two fisted eater said...

When Kate sat at the table with the kids eating from her "plate", all she needed was TWO forks, so she could shovel it in 2 fisted.
What a pig.

MyKidsAreKoreanToo said...

As for tying shoes - my 6 year old first grader doesn't know how. I never taught him because all of the shoes he's picked out have velcro. He hasn't had that many because his feet hardly grow! Actually, he can tie his bathrobe so maybe he could do a shoe.
He had an assessment for Kindergarten last year where they tested for things like gross motor skills, shape and letter recognition and things like that. At no time did tying shoes ever come up. His K teacher did tie shoes when necessary (I worked in the classroom once a week).
Coincidentally my son eats a half peanut butter sandwich every day.
NOW, that being said, why doesn't Kate ever eat with her kids? And why don't they get what she eats? WTH?? Man, I wish she would run away with Steve (or Jaime LOL) and leave the kids with Jon. He's a douche but he loves them.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

I hate to drag this topic out but some of the comments about rules on peanut products in schools really irk me. It's a well known fact that peanut allergies are by far the most common allergy in kids these days and in many cases VERY severe. I think someone already mentioned that even just a smell of peanut can trigger a reaction. I was very disturbed by comments like:
"more rules never seem like a good idea to me."
And
"We rural Pennsylvanians don't do to well with rules like that anyway, so I doubt they would be able to enforce it."
I don't see how any parent in thier right mind would protest a rule that serves to protect the safety of other children in the school just so their kid could keep eating peanut butter sandwiches.
Maybe what bothers me the most is that's the exact kind of attitude I could see Kate having in regards to this topic: "Well that rule doesn't suit me and my kids so I'm not following it." Just Gross!

-------------------------------

Peanut butter and jelly doesn't spoil. It's not tuna fish. That would be disgusting! There are delis here, as well as grocery stores that put peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (wrapped, of course) in the refrigerator section, and if they don't sell one day, they put them out the next. I'm hoping they were refrigerated overnight and she had a cold pack in their lunch box. Should be no problem. PB&J stays pretty well preserved!

Why would it make a difference if the sandwiches were eaten at noon at school, or at home?

Vanessa said...

Sooo true about her table manners! Remember their romantic organic dinner out? She couldn't scarf enough of her own plate down her throat, she had to reach over to Jon's plate and steal some of his. USUALLY (well in my case anyways) the wife usually can't finish what's on her plate and will coquetishly (roll your eyes here, I'm trying to be funny) offer up her leftovers to her hubby. AND always talks with her mouth full of food! (Amy on LPBW does the same and it makes me cringe!)

Mona said...

I didn't see any veggies in that lunchbox.

*****

I saw half a sandwich, and I think I saw Kate making the sandwiches from 2 large jars - so I'm guessing PB and J or PB and Fluff.
I saw grapes, the salty cheesy things and a "yogurt bar" as Aaden called his "bessert". I didn't pay any attention to what they were drinking, but JuicyJuice sure
would be a good guess.

anything else I missed? Usually these kids eat baby carrots a lot.

amyinbc said...

Kate is a self serving Bitch. I feel for her kids. And Jon but lucky for him he has the means to GET AWAY from her.

Peanut butter and any peanut product banned from my kids' elementary school due to two kids with severe allergies. I completely respect this. If it were my child who had the allergies I would hope people would have the compassion to realize the very serious consequences and respect that.

Thanks for the show synopsis! Haven't watched it in eons. Sadly not the same without Jon and with Kate trying to 'act' like she is so hard done by.

My parents raised 6 kids on one income. We had all we needed, lived in a nice home and now as adults have the joy of a very large extended family.

For Kate to tear up, saying she is concerned for the welfare of her children (without the shows income) is incredibly STUPID and selfish. Hmm, a few million in the bank is not enough to get you through? Go back to work when the kids are all in school Kate. EARN some money!

I know! What a concept when you can just let your KIDS do it for you!!

They were rice krispie treats. And she always packs them juice boxes. She's making me never want to even get close to apple juice again. I noticed they already had cavities at the dentist at that young age; not really surprised with all the Fluff, juice and other sugary crap she feeds them.

_________________________________

Their school does have junior kindergarten, and the junior kindergarten checklist does say that peanut products are not allowed, at least for that age group. (I would link, but even though many people know the name of their school, I don't feel comfortable divulging the name of the kids' school.) And they have offered junior kindergarten for a long time. My friend's much younger brother attended it at the same school eight years ago. The school has preschool, junior kindergarten, and kindergarten. With the kindergarten standards at that school, it is easy to understand why the tups are in junior kindergarten. They have to take a standardized test to get into kindergarten there.

Katy said...

It's strange that she's now claiming not to have taken the kids shopping for "obvious reasons"- yet she dragged the entire family on that hellish shopping trip to buy the kids' new beds.

Perhaps not, but the kids have to work for PB&J.

Anyway....human compassion is the key here. If we know there is a child who will be severely affected by a certain food in the
room, why can't we be kind enough to not bring that food? If your children really like PB&J, could they have it as a snack on crackers after school instead of in the lunchbox? My mom used to send us with egg salad sandwiches,
tuna salad sandwiches and roast beef with mayonnaise regularly. We used tin foil to wrap them in and brown paper sacks for toting.
There was no refrigeration offered at school. No child got sick. Now they have insulated everything and mix-your-own-at-the-table lunch
items. There is no excuse any more
for having to bring PB&J when you know there are children who will become ill as soon as you open up your lunchbox. Human compassion!

=====================
Ditto!

Shoe shopping with toddlers is out for "obvious reasons" but flying across country with toddlers for a free trip to Utah that the kids will never remember is worth it.

Kate logic at its finest.

Pamela Jaye said...

my mother never succeeded at teaching us to tie our shoes. I was let off and allowed to wear my sneakers to school on gym days so I could get them tied before I left home, and my brother's teach taught him to tie his shoelaces.

Eventually I learned on my own. Forget where.
I just find this amusing as I didn't know my brother had the same problem till 20 years later (as he moved to FL with the parents and we never talked)

How does one pick out shoes for growing little ones without going to a shoe store??? I don't buy shoes over the internet (clothes, either.)

Phillymomof4 said...

This was the best and funniest recap I have ever read. Outstanding. Hilarious! I never watch the show ever. Ever. It's like people mag said the show has become"about as fun as watching your parents divorce". Why would I want to wath that?! Anyway recaps like fostersmoms was souch better than contributing to the rating of that sad sad show. So HAppy it's going off the air! Yay! I'm Team Kids!

Heather said...

This woman has totally lost her mind and completely has no sense- common or not, left. Those poor, poor children. They are just as senseless, as they have no one to help lead and nurture them in a positive way.

I am a working Mom of 1 child. It does take time to plan for each and everyday but it can be done IF I don't put myself and my ego first. Every Saturday, I get 2 hours to myself to get a pedicure, haircut, and do some shopping. Otherwise, hubby and I work in tandem to get things done. My son doesn't care HOW we do things, as long as we do them together as a family. My son is a handful and 2 years younger than these 8 and takes direction 10x better. Maybe is Ms. Kate was around when they were little, this wouldn't be an issue. But God forbid she blame herself!!!

These children need some adult help quickly. From the actions of Ms. Kate, from throwing the toys down the stairs to pushing her kiddos around like rag dolls, SOMEONE needs to step in. It just breaks my heart.
