How many single moms are in Pennsylvania who would probably love to have free child care because they are trying to swing multiple jobs and juggling their kids and forced to spend much of their paycheck on day care? My guess would be lots and there is probably a waiting list a mile long. Not to let those people stand in her way, Kate Gosselin also asked the state of Pennsylvania for free child care, calling her children disabled, just so she had a better chance of receiving the benefit. The author of the new tell all book about Kate managed to get his hands on the letter which says in part, “We have eight children four years old and under. Our six youngest are 11 months old. In a sense our children (our six 11 month olds) are disabled. They cannot feed themselves, transport themselves up and down stairs or at all, bathe themselves, get a drink when they are thirsty, go to the bathroom by themselves, put themselves to bed or dress themselves. Any one person cannot safely care for and keep eight children safe from danger, 12 hours per day, 5 days per week!”
My first suggestion would be not to have that many children. My second suggestion is to use some of the millions of dollars you have earned to hire a couple of people to take care of your kids. She probably wanted someone there so she wouldn't have to watch them at all and could go do what it is she does.The even more crazy thing is that she got one of her Senators to write a letter supporting her request. Seriously? I wonder if he gets to bodyguard her on the weekends for that.
