Unless it's a video of her running the entire ten miles, how is a picture of her outside in a running outfit going to prove anything? It could very well be staged.

I think I am going to scream!

The way she acted on that RV trip, screaming, wailing, beefing, fussing, threatening her kids! And the article now is screaming that kate is now Mary Poppins/Martha Stewart!

All eight perfectly healthy kids are tucked into bed, knowing that they are safe under my roof!

Another dig at Jon! Also, why is she saying that now? She let the world know that Shoka could get out by opening the door. Anyone can jump the fence and get in the yard. kate is so stupid. She should of treated those dogs like kings because she would be repaid by the protection Shoka and Nola would provide if someone was to break in and the dogs go into full attack!

kate did not write this! Someone is doing free-lance writing to make extra money.

It's Kate. The exclamation marks give it away, as well as the MY, I, ME.

How do you 'gently' help someone do math homework? Where does she come up with this absurd drivel?

CantDoMuchKate said...

BTW, have to say that in my experience, children don't really know "by nature" how to help around the house. That's one of the jobs of being a parent, teaching your children how to help and be part of the family, which will then serve them into adulthood.

What I found very telling is that Kate names each daughter and praises her: "hearing Mady sing", "watching Cara gently help", "hearing Hannah or Leah ask ...", and "watching Alexis greet Shoka ...". But when she gets to the boys, no names, just "having three boys who know how to help their mom."

I bet those boys have learned "how to help" because they are constantly berated to the point where they're terrified of displeasing her. Even when Kate is trying to come across as a loving mom, she reveals her true nature when it comes to those "icky" boys. Can't even be bothered to say their names or give them individual praise.

My god, it must be tiresome to live with Kate, who is always whinging on and on about needing help.

I agree Hefner Rd. in FL! Chicken meatballs? as a substitute for an Italian meatball sub sandwich?

Yuck!

You have to have Hamburger, woman!

Also, you made 16 1 inch balls. That is one per 9 (We nine are just fine), who gets the extra 7? There is no way you make home made rolls for one chicken ball to sit on to feed the kids.

What was the vegetable? Spinach? Looks like it was boiled to death!

Again, Yuck!

I bet when Jon and Ellen made spaghetti and meatballs for everyone, they were made with real hamburger meat and were big as softballs, well, ok, golf balls.

For everything I dislike about Kate and her parenting, I will defend eating less red meat. And children will learn to adapt to what is offered (IMO).

Good on her for having them try spinach.

When children are starting to walk and then they follow you around the house as they approach 2, well they start to mimic you. They want to dust, they want to push a vacuum, a smaller type. Yes the boys as well as the girls.

That is when you start to make just putting their toys away a game. We aren't born to clean, do laundry, but we learn by watching and imitating.

By the time a child is almost 10, they should be putting things away, keeping their closet in order, dusting their own rooms, even changing the sheets.

It is up to the parent as to what a child knows they "must" do to be part of the family versus what you insists on doing as it takes them too long.

You do reward children for cleaning their room and another part of the house, whether boys or girls. Treat them equally and they will be able to take care of themselves by the time they enter college.

A washing machine is not a computer and show me a child who can't operate a computer, an Ipad, a cell phone, etc.

If you don't do these things, your child does not learn. Yet , they go to a neighborhood friend's house and see that friend working around their house. As I discovered my neighbor's child was helping my son do his chores and he said "at home I don't have anything like this to do"........so, it is up to you to establish "chores" very early. They enjoy it.

Can I ask a stupid question? What is the url for her personal blog?

Sharla said...

I put the link in the post.

Katy said...

Thanks for posting the link. I am horrified that this family is still pictured with the German Shepherd. Did that embarrassment of a breeder actually give the dog BACK after they first returned it? I can't even.. I am disgusted.

Kate does not have the brains to write this Blog: Today I choose…March 13, 2012 Today I choose… - to smile on the outside even tho I may feel frowny on the inside. - to take a really negative situation and look really hard find the one possible positive in it and focus only on that! - to make the effort to make my children happy and give them amazing childhood memories despite all other clutter and noise in my life! - to take the road less traveled which is the hard road because I know it is the best thing to do and the outcome is always the most rewarding! - exert myself to the maximum in order to achieve my goals! - to encourage others along my way! - hold myself to the highest standards possible in order to live the most achieved life imaginable for myself and the ones I love! - to realize that as a mom I have immense responsibility and I may not “slack” if I want the best for my children! - to remind myself that all decisions I make matter! - to give myself permission to “rest” and “take a break” for a short time once in awhile in order to chill out mentally before I hit life hard once again! - to ignore hate, dishonesty, attempted sabotage, and the ones that wish it on me and instead pay kindness, acceptance and positivity forward! - to find solutions and not problems! - to get up each and every time I am knocked down in life! - to make at least one person smile, because if only that, I’ve made the world a little bit better! - to realize that I am blessed beyond words….and that alone should inspire me to do ALL of the above each and everyday! I hope for each of you a positive and love filled day, despite what you are going through! XO

Boy, she is nauseating. She always tries to sound so upbeat and optimistic when "writing" for her blog, but in actuality she is glum and nasty in her interactions with her children. Her children are terrified of her. What a piece of work
