TABLE for 12

post_1492147_1237580132_medJon & Kate plus 8, LOOK OUT!  Table for12, TLC’s new up and coming hit TV show is giving the Gosselins a run for their money!  I haven’t missed an episode since it began!  The show deplicts a family that consist of parents,  Eric and Betty Hayes, and their 2 sets of twins and sextuplets. 

Eric, the Dad is a police officer and Mom, Betty is a stay at home mom.  They are just a good down to earth family.  Unlike Jon & Kate plus 8, you see them just the way they are.  Piles of dirty cloths in the hall, chaos at bath time etc…!  I know how hard it is to keep up with washing cloths for 4 people.  I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to have to wash for 12! table for 12 family

They have a nice home. Nothing too fancy.  They inherited it from Eric’s grandmother and built on to accommodate their family.  A lot of the work Eric did himself.  Once of the sextuplets, Rebecca (4), has cerebral palsy.  She is as sweet as can be and you often see her parents moved to tears over her condition. 

This family is so full of love it will warm your heart.  Through all of the piles of cloths, screaming kids and what ever they come up against, they never loose their sense of humor.  I’m telling you, this show is great! 

On last nights episode they took the kids to Niagara Falls in Canada.  They have not been on a vacation since the sextuplets were born and I’m sure this one was courtesy of  TLC.  You could tell that Mom and Dad weren’t just real thrilled with the idea of having to pack and tote 10 kids cross country.  But they did and they all had a good time.  This is what makes the difference to me.  They would have rather have stayed at home, but they did it for the kids.   Other shows, I won’t name, make the kids go for the sake of the show. 

If you haven’t watched Table for 12, you don’t know what your missing!

  1. Margie, I took your advice and did watch an episode of Table for 12. It was the one where they all went ice skating. Talk about saints. If you have the time, would you mind providing a little background information about this family. I haven’t heard too much about them? I think other people besides me would like to hear a little more about them. So far it seems like this family is actually a real family not a celebrity family. I hope it stays that way!

    • Ill see if I can find some more information about them and post it on other pages over on the right. I looked for some yesterday and didn’t find a whole lot. Of course their not out sleeping with 23 year old teachers and personal body guards eather. They are still getting the show off of the ground. In the last episode the “drove” to Canada to Niagra Falls. Sorry about the spelling there. The episode with the ice skating was not one of the better ones. But there are plenty more to choose from. If I can watch American Idol, you can watch another episode of Table for 12.
