Kate Gosselin has reached that coveted milestone in every mom’s life: ALL of her kids will be heading to school this fall! All eight of Kate’s kids will be full time students this year, giving her a few precious hours all to herself! Most moms want to just kick back and enjoy the silence of it all, but eventually you find that you are just as busy or even busier than before!
“I stand in awe, amazement and slight sadness at the thought of this [insert sad, nostalgic mommy music here please], I can remember …. thinking ahead to the day when I would send eight children off to school Monday through Friday…at the time, the thought of having eight children at home Monday through Friday scared the living bejeebers out of me.”
She says that she is very grateful to have reached this milestone at all:
“Reaching this milestone is a privilege that is never a guarantee — extra especially not in a high-risk sextuplet pregnancy,” Kate writes. “I feel honored (even if a bit sad) to send them marching off to school…Just like Snow White and her 8 (please, just on this occasion?)Dwarfs!”
I’m sure Kate will have plenty of things to take care of that will keep her days full. Are your kids in school full time? Did you do anything special on that first day that you had the house to yourself?
