Kate Gosselin Has "Another Day In Mommy Paradise" (Photos)

Kate Gosselin blogs about a day in the life of this mom of eight!

Ever since Kate Plus 8 was cancelled by TLC, Kate Gosselin has become a little more interesting to say the least. (Am I right?)

We’ve kept a close eye on her blog and since then we’ve gotten the lowdown on packing kids’ lunchboxes, preparing the right fitness plan for you, and personal photos of the Gosselin kids!

And the newest entry is no different. Kate took to her blog to give us an inside feel of a day in the life of this mother of eight!

Kate says:

So this morning started just like any normal morning in our house…
Alarms rang at 5:55 am, kids got dressed, and came downstairs for breakfast. They greeted their mommy who was “sorta dressed”, that is if you consider sweat pants, a warm pajama top and a zip up hoodie, dressed! Not to mention the sorta up and sorta down and mostly all around hair that I was sporting at that hour!

Everyone found their seats and awaited their pancakes and juice and a half of a banana if they wanted one. At this point, the timer was set and the green bar was lit up…. In 20 minutes, the yellow, then red light lit up with a warning that “time is up!” Once we see red, we know it’s time for teeth brushing, hair brushing and socks, shoes and jackets…. Then we head to the BBB (big blue bus)!

Somewhere in there, we wrestled Mady and Cara down the stairs who are increasingly difficult to rouse, figured out something they will tolerate for breakfast, broke up a few slight food arguments from the little kids, encouraged the infamously slow ones to hurry up (you didn’t hear me say Alexis’ name, did you?), and quieted all the screams and squallor that occur between the kitchen and the ever so patiently waiting BBB!

Finally, as we eeked ever closer to leaving for the bus stop late, the last child hurried toward the van as I impatiently beeped a warning… and then  off we go! (Again, I did not mention Cara’s name, did I? No, of course not!)

After calling out today’s bus seating assignment to the little kids, and handing them their back packs that surely weigh more than they do, they loudly boarded the bus in their usual disorganized fashion!

I hug and kiss each one not once but twice and send them off for another day of brain filling instruction! Knowledge is power, after all!

Whew! Now the momma’s day begins! Running, laundry, and bill paying and making dinner.. Oh my, just to name a few things we moms do!

And before you know it, it was time to head to the bus stop to collect the now tired, cantankerous, disheveled, kids who come spilling off the bus! Funny, seems they all belong to me!

Today, I received an extra treat as I was handed a PAPER bag of vomit from the bus driver while I watched a sad sickly Hannah deboard the bus!

I moved into quick action to contain the vomit in a plastic bag while my other children swore she had the plague and insisted I place Hannah not anywhere near any one of them for the ride home. Um, okay, that’s where I took control and told them that they had two choices: ride in their seats or WALK home. Not surprisingly, each one decided that the plague was bearable for the ride home and opted to ride! Shocked? I’m not!

Upon returning home, I quickly threw a delicious dinner together that the kids rated a nearly perfect “10”³ (yes, recipe for my version of family “yummy stuff” coming soon) and ran off to collect more kids from after school activities!

Finally, at 7 pm I think I could breathe again as I conducted showers, homework and bedtime routine…
Not sure why I’m writing this now….. Shouldn’t I be sleeping???!!!!!!

What do you think of Kate’s life? Does it sound different than what you’ve watched on her former reality show?
