My sister has quadruplets (without fertility treatments) and 2 other children. Raises them as a single mother (as the marriage to the father didn't work out). Doesn't work an extravagant or high paying job. Doesn't live a fancy life. Those kids have been raised in a loving household and have had a nice life. Other than one photoshoot when they were infants for a local paper she has not capitalized on them at all. The kids weren't raised by a nanny either. Whatever differences I have with my sister I have to give her kudos for that.
Kate thinks about Kate and Kate alone. She doesn't want to live a "mediocre" lifestyle. She doesn't want to give up the hair, nanny, the nails, the giant house, the car, the trips, the cook...etc. It has nothing to do with the kids but everything to do with her. I can't respect that or the comments she makes. She only has that lifestyle because of mediocre people. Period. She has it on the backs of some mediocre people who gave her money directly.
I would imagine there are a lot more large families out there that absolutely no one hears about because they go about their lives day to day without any hoopla. And there are much more inspirational people than her living their lives not looking for fanfare like she does. I don't google her or seek out news about her. What I get about her are from the incessant commercials on TLC, my mom who watches the news more than me and here. I wait patiently for her to drift into obscurity and for those kids to grow up into dysfunctional adults.
