don't feel bad....Jon and Kate BOTH have admitted that they have help, including a cleaning person at least once a month, PLUS, they have catering services on the days that the cameras are there, and they have someone to help with the errands and such.

DON'T feel bad one bit, just do what you can and have fun lovin' your family!

They are full time parents as well. I am sure a lot of moms out there also Carry jobs. Jon and Kate always have one of them home with the kids. I am pretty sure if Jon left the house looking like a lot of our husbands do then she would be all over him lol.  I know how it is to want your house clean I have to say I am obsessive about cleaning the house everything has to be just right but I am a stay at home mom so I have time to get everything done. My sister laughs at me and tells me that I am like her when it come to cleaning I argued this point until one night she called me after reading the Multiple Blessing book they have, in the book it says that when the twins were little everything had to be perfect right down to the fisher price doll house being cleaned before they were in bed. After her reading that I am guilty as charged. Don't nit pick over your house if you can leave without mopping do it. When we left the other day one of my twins girls said to me "oh no mom did you mop the floor before we left" She was really upset.  I have to learn to let it go so give yourself a pat on the back for being able to let little things go. Have you seen any of the episodes where their family fun takes a turn because she is so obsessive. I am not bashing Kate I give her a lot of credit, I don't think it is fair to judge someone when you are not in their situation but you can see how it effects the kids at times.

Kate is O.C. & even admits it.  Sometimes I feel sorry for her (especially in the earlier episodes) because she can't enjoy just sitting still or playing in her own in the garage when they were all playing she was organizing things, and Jon got on to her, or when she said she can't put the special lights on for the cameras when the TLC crew isn't there, because she can see dust & dirt & has to get a mop or broom out, and she had such problems finding help, because she's so particular.

They don't film every day of the week so I'm sure they are prepared when the cameras are coming.
