We have watched Jon & Kate Plus 8 for years. Since the beginning really. Zander LOVES that show. Well, tonight while we were watching the "new" show they announced they were splitting up. He looked at me with the saddest eyes I have ever seen on him. I just sorta laughed at him to keep the mood light. But inside I was fighting back tears. Just as I am doing now typing this. He said, How sad that they have come this? What??? He's 10. What 10 y.o. has the mind set to ask such a question or to even recognise the magnitude of what happened? Should I be worried? Or proud? I have raised an extremely sensitive child and I think that's pretty cool. Both my boys are sensitive children. And I love that about them. They can be tender and soft but still be BOYS. Man...I have done a wonderful job so far! I just pray those poor Gosselin children grow up healthy, happy, and strong mentally. Wow...wouldn't want to be in their shoes for NOTHING. I feel soooo sad for them. All of them.
