Like Father, Like Son
Is anyone else interested in all this drama about Jon and Kate? I actually don't watch the show very often, but I really admire Kate's energy raising eight kids. I was surprised to hear about their latest problems, so I have been watching a little more.
Last week I was on the computer when I saw the caption, "Jon talks to People". I had to click on the latest video to see what Jon was going to say! As I was watching, my 13-year-old son walked in the room.
"What are you doing", he said.
"I'm watching what Jon from Jon and Kate said to People magazine!"
"Because I want to see what he said!"
"Why would you even waste your time watching this?"
(Wow) "You sound just like your father!"
I think he may be right, though. Why would I be wasting my time on this? I don't even know these people. Lots of people have marriage problems. Why do I want to spend my time watching this when there are so many better things I could be doing with my time.
Later, I told my husband about our conversation...
"...and he asked me why I was watching it, and he sounded just like you!", I said.
"I was going to say, why are you even wasting my time telling me this story?", my husband said.
OK, OK, they win! I will TRY to not watch the Jon and Kate drama anymore. I can't believe a 13-year-old can teach his mom a thing or two, pathetic.
Well, does anyone else watch it?
