Octuplets?

Eight babies, a set of Octuplets born in California. I cannot even begin to imagine how scared these parents must be, some of the babies are pretty tiny. How do you prepare yourself to be parents of eight all at once? Has medical science done this couple a disservice? Having eight babies at once is just not normal.

I am wondering if "Jon and Kate plus Eight" with their set of twins and sextuplets feel threatened. Especially since they bought a new house and all. Supposedly they decide together if they will do another year of their show or not, so they just contract one year at a time. Perhaps the book that they wrote will tide them over. Last night Kate spent four hours cleaning the moldy gross refrigerator in their new home. I am thinking, is she stupid..has she not heard of a steamer? She was shown using Q tips and tooth picks. I looked at the large expanse of kitchen and dining room floor and I thought..well Kate lets see you scrub that area three times a day on your hands and knees. I do enjoy their show, I love the interaction between the children. Each one with their own personality. However I could do with a little less of Kate’s whining.

I had only one colicky baby, our first born. She cried and fussed and screamed for five months. I did not sleep a whole night until after she was six months old. Far Guy would take his turn, he would put her in her car seat and take her for a ride. She would go to sleep for the entire ride and as soon as he brought her in the house she would wake up and cry. I was tempted to start a taxi cab business. When she finally outgrew the colic, I was sure something was wrong with her because she wasn’t screaming. I checked on her many times a night to find her sound asleep. One baby at a time was almost too much for me to handle…eight at once would have done me in :)

    I don’t know how they’re going to manage.

    I also don’t know how on earth the poor lady managed being pregnant with eight, even though the little ones are teensy weensy.

    Hope people are prayin’ for ‘em.

    kate is so anal, it makes me want to throw things at my tv! when the boys were very little it pissed me and my wife both off when people would ask us the same questions over and over.
    1. are they boys or girls?
    2. are they identical?
    3. did you use fertility drugs.
    4. i bet its hard to deal with two at a time.

    our answers were simple.
    boys, do they look identical to you? no, and no!

    people dont realize how easy twins acutally are, but when you go to trips or quads or more then you start to need more resources in the form of more bodies to help you. any where you go with multiples, you get the celebrity treatment from onlookers and passerby’s. the more kids in clan be it 4-5-6-7-8- whatever the worse it gets for the parents and the kids, a task that would take a normal person an hour say, would take parents with multiples hours instead.
