It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Kate Gosselin‘s house. She proudly posted a picture of their tree on Twitter yesterday – a handsome pine aglow with white lights and an angel on top.
She also set the record straight to followers who thought she might have had some outside help in her holiday preparations. “Do some people actually pay ppl to do their decorating?” she tweeted. “Unheard of here! Took us all day :(”
Nor is the tree Rockefeller Center-sized, in case you were wondering. Kate, who bought it from a local nursery, describes it as “Tall enough, yet small enough that I didnt have to use the mop to put the angel on top – just a step stool, lol.”
But even famous reality-show moms are still moms, subject to the same kid-disasters as the rest of us. And as any mom knows, those disasters usually happen at the worst possible moment. Kate tweeted yesterday evening that she “had a vomiting child to clean up…Again!”
When one of her octet said “No, thank you” to dinner, Kate had a feeling that something was up. And her motherly instincts were right. The appetite-less child – she hasn’t said which one it is – started upchucking soon after that and running a fever.
“Yep, tis the season2 clean up vomit!” she joked. “If it hits all, wish me luck!”
At last report, a second little Gosselin was down with the bug as well. Kate’s relying on an “old time trick” to get the germs out: turning off the heat, opening windows and bundling the children up.
Here’s hoping it helps. Not even the most die-hard Kate-hater would wish an eight-fold round of stomach flu on her.
