Kate, we don't think you're crying because you're sad. We think you're crying because you've been caught.
Kate says: The potty training episodes actually occured at Aunt Jodi's and Uncle Kevin's
We say: Kate has actually tried to refute something of substance that Jodi and Kevin said! How refreshing! Only she refutes it with more lies. The facts are actually that, yes, potty training was discussed in an episode at Aunt Jodi's. But the only clip ever shown was Jodi opening the bathroom long after the boys had used the bathroom. They were fully clothed as she passed out candy corn as a reward. They were never shown on the potty at her house. The kids were naked and on the potties in Kate's house, not Jodi's. In addition, isn't it worse to allow your kids to be filmed going potty at someone else's house? That's Kate's excuse, it wasn't at her house? We won't post the potty videos as proof here, but they can easily be found if you don't believe us.
Kate says: Kevin "has four children of his own and spending time in court and gallivanting to New York to complain about me, couldn't he be at home with his kids?"
We say: The hearings were in Horsham, Pennsylvania, not New York, a mere 90 miles from their Elizabethtown home. They could get there in an hour and a half. Three of their children are school age, only the youngest, Benny, isn't in school. So they only needed a babysitter for their youngest. The hearing was only a few hours long. They probably were able to get back home in time before anyone even got home from school. And seriously, Kate, you're calling Kevin an absent parent? You haven't been home in a week. And by the way, Jodi is a stay-at-home mom, home every day. I think she's allowed one morning away from her toddler if you're allowed weeks and weeks away from your children. The hearings were not "court," but a congressional fact-finding mission to determine whether laws, regulations, or other protections are needed to save children from greedy parents like you.
Kate says: "I'm not an absentee mom. I'm on the phone, texting back and forth with whoever is taking care of my kids."
We say: New book idea! "Text messaging: Parenting with your thumbs alone."
