How would she have 8 spilled drinks? You mean that she still has the EIGHT year old twins drinking out of sippy cups? If Kate has eight spilled drinks to clean up at each meal then she has to TEACH the kids how to drink out of cups without spilling, just like ALL mothers have to teach their kids a multitude of things. Having more kids does not excuse her from having to teach her kids how to do things and mature. The world shouldn't revolve around what's convenient for Kate, but what's good for her children. They didn't ask to be born and they're no longer babies they are five years old.
