Maddy & Cara are of course very different in personality. People seem to blame Kate for Maddy's behavior, I for one do see alot of Jon in her just like my husband and my daughter. She will be a great leader someday. She has in in her to take charge. When Kate says she will be president of something some day, I believe it. Cara on the other hand will be the kinder gentle mothering patient kind of mom that most don't give Kate enough credit for. Cara & Mady are like the ying & yang of every child I know including my own. They both have their moments and no one should criticize them....So on that note, I hope that this was what the viewers were happy to see. No trips, no freebies, just the kids being at home playing. And you know what? I found it kinda boring. Is that mean to say? Am I the only one that truly enjoys seeing the kids enjoy being in new places and doing fun activities?
The other day I too switched over the winter clothes. I mean, our shorts and tees were overflowing the room. I hated doing that, so I totally know how it stinks to deal with clothing bins. I was glad to see that Kate took advantage of her 2 "mommies" yet still gave them their space. Well done Kate! Ohh and Jon too of course ;)
Michigan MLive.com Interviews Kate On Giving Back
This is a nice article from Grand Rapids, MI. They interviewed Kate on her book, as well as what they will be doing for the holidays. It was nice to see the advice she gave for making the season special:
"It is a great honor to give now that we can. Others gave to us in years past when we needed it, and it is so exhilarating to be on the giving end now."
Now when you read on hate blogs that Kate isn't aware of her blessings, direct them to this quote and the rest of the article HERE. Thanks Dawn!
