Voyeur

Photobucket

All right. I admit it. I watch Jon & Kate Plus Eight. Not all the time, but I do watch it. And I watched the season premiere out of sheer voyeuristic desire to see what the heck is going on over there.

But I draw the line at spouting loud and possibly uninformed opinions about their life and the way they are living it. With one exception:

Why the heck are 5-year-old children sitting in high chairs and wearing bibs?!

That's all. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

LOL! I admit, I wish I could always put a bib on Aidan. He does have his own apron he'll wear for really messy meals. The people I know who use bibs like that often buy pretty expensive clothing for their kids.

High chairs, though? How can they even fit?! We used it sometimes at the age of 3, but even then I felt funny. (and mostly would use it if he wouldn't stay seated to eat)

They live about 30 minutes from me (unless they moved out of PA)

Funny, I was watching the Emeril episode this week and thought the very same thing about the bibs. We stopped putting bibs on Emily before she even turned 3! (Although we still make her take her shirt off when we eat pasta at home...) I'm guessing it's because Kate is a Neat Freak. No, a Neat Psycho!

However, as far as the high chairs go, I think it's a little different. I noticed before they moved houses that they had taken the front bars off the high chairs, and they use them just like regular chairs. It's actually a pretty good idea, given that they still fit in them and it's easier to fit those 6 chairs at the table than it would be to fit 6 adult chairs!

I have watched J&K since the beginning. I am truly saddened for their situation. I think Jon is being an immature butthead, but that is just my opinion.

As for the bibs and highchairs, I didn't notice that they were using high chairs the other evening, but I did notice the bibs. I haven't seen the kids in the bibs except for that show that I noticed. I can only guess that they had on their nice clothes since Emeril was there and what they were eating was messy. I would have just plunked an old shirt on them and let them have at it, but, I don't do their laundry, so I guess I can't be an expert on the routine.

I can't wait to see the episodes with the American Chopper guys. Jon definetly doesn't fit in with those guys. By the way, I have met the OCC guys and have their autographs. Aint I all important!!!!

I will keep my opinion to myself as far as their relationship goes....

The kids are too darn cute though. I feel sorry for the kids. They are going to have a rough, busy life ahead of them with all of the media around.
