Hot Topic Friday *Kids on TV*

I'm going to be testing out some new potential "Weekly" posts.... First one up.... *Hot Topic* Friday! Where I share a hot topic, give my opinion and then see what ya'll have to say about it!

~~~~~Kids on TV~~~~~

Hot Topic: I have to admit I have been addicted to Jon & Kate Plus 8 these past few weeks. We have a subscription for Netflix so I started watching from Season 1! I think I'm on Season 3 right now. Anywho.... watching it just makes me think about all of the FREE stuff she has and if she's still getting FREEBIES now-a-days (I'm sure she is) and of course, the impact it's had on the kids. I then think about if I would agree to a reality show of our life if given the opportunity. Lots to think about right?

My Thoughts:
So to answer the questions... Even though it would be fun, I think I would say no to a reality show. It would really be annoying, I think, to have someone following me around. Worst thing I think would go CRAZY having to keep the house clean! lol Funny right. Ohhh, I'm turning into my grandmother. She always worries about what others are going to think about the way she or her house looks.

But all the FREE STUFF! Here's some of the stuff they have gotten FREE:
-Tickets to Dutch Wonderland amusement park: $309.50
-1/2 an organic cow from Natural Acres Farm: $1,395.00
-Tickets to Walt Disney World: $654.00 per day
- Utah house rental (estimate: $5,000), ski lift tickets $72 for six days), ski school lessons ($140 per child)
- Violin: $100-$300
-Crayola Factory Tour: $90.00
-Sesame Street Place tickets: $509.50
-Sight & Sound Christian theater tickets: $236.00

This is just a fraction of what they have gotten. I love the organic cow! That is so awesome! It would be so hard to say no to FREE stuff. But I think it would effect my girls as well and don't know how they would interpret it. You know, the whole, "entitlement" phase. Even my 7-year-old saw an episode and asked if they call "Mady" that because she's "Mad" all the time. I thought that was just hilarious. And that brings me to the effect on the kids. I think it's so sad that the kids grew up with cameras in their face and were sad when they weren't doing the show anymore. I do Youtube videos, but just for fun, not for money or any other reason. But having a camera stuck on you 24/7 would not be fun.

Hubby's Thoughts: He hates the show... end of discussion!

Your Thoughts: Would you say yes to a reality show?
