The twins turn 7
21 July 2008 | by (Greensboro, NC) – See all my reviews

It is the twins 7th birthday. It also happens to be Columbus Day, so Jon is off from work. But unfortunately, the girls still have school. We find out that Cara is actually the OLDER twin as she was born as 5:41 and Mady was born at 5:47 - which Mady loudly protests that "that's not fair!" While the twins are at school - the sextuplets get to go to Gymboree, which is like a little tumbling, play gym for kids. As they try to feed the kids breakfast before hand, sleepy-head Collin doesn't want to eat. So Jon picks him up and tells him to go to time out until he's ready to eat. Kate later tells Jon he did't handle it properly, that he yelled at him. But he clearly didn't. She then tells Collin, "just ignore daddy, he's mean". Big Parenting 101 mistake - you should never disagree and cut down the other parent's decisions in front of the kids. The kids will definitely use this against you later to "divide and conquer". Its important to support each other as parents in front of the kids, even if you openly disagree with each other later behind closed doors. Kate's excuse is that "nobody's perfect. I'm sure there's plenty of other perfect parents who do it right all the time".

The Gymboree is typically closed Mondays, but the owners open special for the Gosselins so they can have the gym to themselves. I understand that is usually the only way they go to most "public" places , is if they can reserve the whole place. I'm not sure if this is for security, safety, or TV production reasons.

Kate keeps telling Jon to come over and join the kids, "you're like anti-social boy". Kate should remember she has 8 kids, not nine. Then another time "Jon can you sit down and help, you are really annoying me." Back home, Kate has to get everything ready for the girls party. The girls have chosen not to do a big party, but to just have a sleepover later with Talia. So Kate makes a cake at home and decorates with balloons and streamers.

Jon and Kate discuss the possibility of Jon switching jobs that would give him more flexible hours so he can be home more.

Then it's time for the girls to get off the bus at home - and lo and behold, MAdy comes stomping in, mad at the world, kicks balloons out of her way, and stomps off camera. Kate goes on to explain, "that's just how Mady is - sometimes she's crabby and tired after a long day of school. I try not to take it personal, We are working on her." Are you kidding me? If they would address her spoiled rotten attitude, maybe then she wouldn't keep having it.

At the restaurant, they have a private area where there table is set up. Mady is cranky, AGAIN, because not everyone sang Happy Birthday. Kate has to remind her the sextuplets are only 3 and don't know all the words.

When they get back home to open presents, it becomes a competition between the twins as to who opens presents faster - to which frustrated Kate responds "Next year I'm going to put them in separate rooms". It's getting late past the girls bedtime and they are really getting cranky. Kate threatens to send them to bed without finishing their presents. Maybe next year they should open the presents as soon as they get home from school. Then Kate tells the kids "DO you know that people you don't even know love you and send you all this stuff?" I found that statement a little creepy.

Overall, I guess the twins had fun, although Mady seemed to ruin much of the festive atmosphere with her spoiled attitude. And she is only 7

  • just wait until she is a teenager.
