Less than 24 hours after I wrote about how no one is chewing up any possessions that we love, a blue size 8/9 croc took one for the team. Our five year old claims her brother ripped it apart. Her 2 year old brother claims the World's Most Annoying Dog did it. And the new puppy, Bruno, had a large chunk in his mouth when I discovered the massacre. So I'm not really sure who did it. I'm just glad I lost my faith in our animals long ago and started buying back up pairs of crocs. Go, me.
In other news, am I the only person worried that Jon and Kate Plus 8 has taken a serious left turn sometime in the last six months? A left turn that may or may not be taking them into Jump the Shark territory. Remember when the show used to be like watching a scene out of a normal family life except with three times as many kids? Remember when you'd turn the television off after an episode and tell your husband about how you'd stab your eyes out if you had to deal with 8 small children everyday and how your life seems so much more doable if they can do it with 8?
Right. So someone needs to tell them to stop showing us all the free stuff they're getting now that their show is popular and telling us how above average awesome it is. If I wanted to watch Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, I would. So enough with the parade of free ski trips, beach houses, and backstage tours. Enough with the free teeth bleaching and hair implants. And enough with trying to tell us how much you appreciate all the freebies and then giving us the name and address of the fabulous resort you stayed at in San Diego. Seriously. E. Nough. We liked when you seemed normal. Normal people don't get free trips to Hawaii. Some of us haven't even been to Hawaii. So please reign it in. You're starting to lose me.
Although, for the record, I'll always like Jon and Kate more than the Duggars no matter how hard TLC tries to get me to watch that 17 and Counting Show. For real. Not gonna do it, TLC.
