Sorry for the lack of posting this weekend. Decorating the tree, shopping, working and sick kids took up the weekend. After my kids saw Jon & Kate's Christmas tree spin last year, I tried to make a mental note on finding out h9w they got it to do that! We found this great rotating tree stand, and its great that the kids can decorate all sides of the tree and not fight! I was super excited for tonight's episode. I always love to see how families get excited coming to a place that I see everyday! Its funny that I actually got to see my dads building (hey dad) and see Central Park in a positive and clean light. (I complain that its been too littered to date.)

Lets start off with the first thing the jealous trolls will complain about. The Wii game. Whether or not it was given to them to promote or they had it before, you know its always the first topic of snide jealous conversation. Kids get games and the kids will have fun with whatever is given to them. I say more power to em. Get over the fact that the kids get to play with nice toys. For the rest of the show I actually spent yelling at kids to go to bed, so I hope to fully re-watch it on Wed. But I wanted to touch on the carriage ride. To those that have mentioned how inhumane it is for the horses, they are the most loved and taken care of out there. The owners of those horses have had them for years, and they are very used to being in NYC. I cant stress enough how wonderful and tame and loving they are. Its a shame that they do have to deal with city smog but so do I. It was cute to see the family get to do something I only did the night my husband proposed.
Lets start off with the fact that this was not another "freebie" trip to them. This is a drive to Manhattan which is not that far to promote their book. Now for those that complained that the kids were out on all these school days it was obvious now that they weren't. Its funny when you finally get to see the aired piece all the days of hateful blogging by some was for nothing because they did all their interviews in one day that was the kids day off from school. Now I really applauded the fact that Kate did her interview solo while the kids were eating lunch. I thought she looked great, regardless of the way others criticize her. I also thought it was a good idea that they were driven in and that Jon didn't attempt to do it himself. I thought the "behind the scenes" of what goes on at these interviews was pretty cool to watch. I for one enjoy seeing the kids get older and don't feel at all that they have lost their appeal. The negative comments that they are no longer cute it just hurtful. They looked like they were so happy to be there and play in the park. But I'm excited to put the kids to bed and watch it more thoroughly.
New Poll Ideas?
This week for the first time I'm at a bit of a loss for poll ideas. Please send me suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would appreciate it!
Is Kate Not Allowing The Tups To Grow Up?
As I have a baby on my hip and I'm yelling at my other child to go to bed, I wanted to touch quickly on GWOP's boredom and how they had nothing better to discuss 6than the development of the tups. How they feel that they are developmentally delayed (they aren't) how Kate is not allowing them to grow up by using bibs (good for saving clothes) and sippy cups (my daughter used them as well). I find them to be pretty articulate and appropriate for their age. It is up to every parent to determine what is best for their kids and nothing pisses me off more then people thinking they know better. And for the record, the seats they climb into are both for safety and so they can reach the table. Not to suppress their growth!
