Now, I know that many of you are just plain tired of hearing about all the Jon & Kate drama and could care less about what happens to them, but I just have to put my two cents in on this on-going saga.
I’ve been a J&K fan since the very first show and I’ve faithfully watched every episode and every re-run and picked up every article on the family. No, I’m not a weirdo..I just kinda enjoy them. Yes, Kate even embarrassed me from time to time. But I think I enjoyed their show because they were so real. No sugar coating their fights or their responses to their children’s melt downs. Plus…it’s kinda nice seeing someone that you can relate with, but on a much smaller scale for sure!
I just watched last night’s retrospective episode and I actually cried at the end. (again, not a a weirdo!) I think you just feel like you know them since you watch from the very beginning. Seeing all the good times and then the decline to now - it was just sad. When Hannah hugged Jon at the end of the episode and told him that she missed him …well, that did it for me. I got all teary and my husband even got a little mad at Jon. “He just doesn’t get it” he said. Jon just seems to be all in the now and not looking ahead at the big picture and what he’s going to miss out on. I mean, how in the world do you go from renewing your wedding vows to the downward spiral towards divorce in a little over 6 months. I don’t know…it’s not my life I guess. I just hated to see it happen to them. I was rooting for them to work it out. Oh well.
Well, I will be one of those people that continues to watch the show. I am anxious to see Kate basically be a single mom on the show. I think it may end up to be inspiring to a mom out there going through the same thing but with only a couple of kids. We’ll see in August and I’m sure I’ll have something more to say then! : )
UPDATE: After I finished the post above, I headed to check on the kids who had been roaming around while I finished up. This is what I found….
Ella sitting on the TV stand watching Max & Ruby…which I’m pretty sure her dad would have a small heart attack over if he saw!
Andrew, my 1 year old, standing on the stool in the kitchen getting ready to dive off.
Hmmm…maybe I should save my blogging for nap time or after the kids are in bed. LOL!
