This is not about the tabloid headlines -- truly a multiples question.
Do you, as a parent of twins/trips/more, watch the show? I have tried, but I can't. So many of my friends (with singletons or no kids) LOVE LOVE LOVE it. But I don't. Watching it stresses me out and I find it isn't, well, entertaining. I can't put it into words, but I just have never been able to sit through an entire episode (and I can't say the same thing about the Duggars
So this morning, the CBC was doing a ton on the story (doesn't the CBC have bigger stories to be focusing on?) and they had a woman on who was a multiple childbirth educator and mother of twins. She said she has never felt comfortable watching the show (and a lot of other interesting things -- relating their situation to the Dionne quintuplets display, etc.).
So -- at least I wasn't alone. And I wondered what other parents of multiples thought of it. Do you watch the show? Why? If not, why not?
Re: my own lack of interest in it... before I had twins, I was fascinated with them -- would stare at the MZ girls who came to the library time when I brought my DS. But now -- I go out of my way NOT to stare at any twins. Not to look. To give that mom space and as much normal-ness as possible. And I wonder if that attraction to twins (and sextuplets) is gone now that I am a member of the club? Hmmm... Or maybe my own reality can be so hard at times (although getting easier all the time), why would I spend time watching someone else's multiple reality show?
