I'm not much of a TV person, but I do love Jon and Kate Plus Eight.
So naturally when I heard Kate Gosselin wrote a book I pre-ordered a copy. Apparently Dennis ordered one for me also, because 2 books arrived the same day in 2 separate packages. After they arrived I looked at the books and thought...wait a minute, do I really want to read this? What could they say that I don't already know about them? I don't think I've missed one of their programs.
The book was not only entertainment, but it was quite spiritual. I love any story that is about real home life. Real happy home life. I was also intrigued about Kate's parents and Jon's mother...neither of them mentioned on their program. The book however does talk about them, and now I have a better understanding, or at least my own little opinion of what is going on in their family. I read between the lines.
There is just something captivating...relaxing (in that I don't have to live their life, I just get to watch it)....amazing...about watching this family on TV. They have 8 year old twins, and 4 year old sextuplets. How ordinary is that? It's not, that is what keeps us all watching...those of us who do. Yet, still, they are just a happy, regular, normal family in other ways.
The truth is, as odd as this may sound.....I would find it totally entertaining to watch ANY happy family in real life. I remember on my first date with Dennis, he asked me about myself, of course. He asked about my hobbies, what I like to do...that sort of thing. And somewhere in that conversation I told him that if I could do anything I would be a fly on the wall in people's homes. Probably TMI on a first date, but hey, I am who I am.
I guess I'm a people lover.
I must be on a roll.
