Yes, I know I could have scooped it up and parked myself between the canned vegetable and fruit aisle but then I would have had to hurry. I wanted to take my time and digest every word and make sure I read the article thoroughly, after all there were rampant rumors of discord in J&K's marriage and I couldn't bear it. By the way, they're doing ok. Shweeeeew!
I would be remiss if I did not also mention my obsession with Little People Big World! It's on the same network and features life with Matt and Amy Roloff (little people) and their kids the eldest being fraternal twins one of whom is a little person, their daughter and younger son. It's life on Roloff Farm and like J&K it's everything in between.
I have often thought about what draws me to these two shows and I don't think I have to delve too deeply - I don't have family nearby so this is the closest I can get to it. It brings back a lot of memories of my mom and dad and life with seven kids and assorted animals in a three bedroom house. In the summertime the house would swell to overflowing with visiting relatives. Basically it was like this, what's one more kid or two or three...? My mom and dad were everyone's favorite aunt and uncle which sometimes got under my skin. Hey, they're my mom and dad after all! Our family would have made a great reality show! We had DRAMA and AWWWW melting moments that's for sure!
