Cullen & Katie : Happy Sparkling New Year Part #8

MG is in mothers day out and is exposed to a million germs, I'm not shocked in the least that she catches every bug that goes around. My kids were the same way when they started preschool.

This is really off topic but do you guys think they'll have more kids? I feel like they might want more but Katie can't seem to catch a break with her pregnancies that maybe they'll stick with two.

I hate to say this because I love c&k but they need to stop complaining about being so busy and still not opening their presents. There is no way they haven't had time to open them. I wish my biggest worry was getting to the hairdresser on time and finding time to open Christmas presents. Lol

I think they will try for at least one more... Hopefully it will be less eventful than her previous ones!! <3

They've both said that they want more kids. I think it's pretty safe to assume that there will be more. I just hope they start taking better care of themselves before they start trying again.

Yeah, they do want another kid, just not quite yet. Although they are aware that time is an issue, given Katie's history of miscarrying and her age. Right after Brooks was born, they said they wanted to see Brooks' temperament before trying again, because if he was a handful or clashed with Gaines, then they would be hesitant to add another baby in the mix. But I don't see Brooks being a holy terror and they've more recently said they do want another.

And I'm with y'all on the complaining about being so busy all the time. It's alienating to people who have to balance full-time jobs outside the home with raising children and still make the time to visit with family and go to a few holiday parties. How long does it take to open a couple presents or unpack a stocking anyway?

There's an old commercial for a pain medication that applies the "a body in motion stays in motion" principle to people with the idea that a person who sits or lays around all the time will become less productive (so hey, get our non-narcotic painkiller and get moving again!). (Spoiler alert: it doesn't really work)

And I say all of this as someone who really likes them. I don't enjoy nitpicking them (they're not E+J!). But there's a time management issue going on with them. And they have more of an adult audience than some other family channels, so comments about being "so busy" will alienate a larger percent of their audience. I'm surprised they haven't thought this through, because it's clear that Cullen is trying to grow the channel.

These are my suggestions since watching them is driving me nuts and I like them the best. I think they stay up too late and consequently their day starts later so they could try to change this. They don't have good time management skills and I suggest they write down what they should be doing hourly. The other issue is the clutter which makes them less organized. I think it is Katie who doesn't let go of things. I would pack up part of the kids toys and rotate them. They have a lot of toys. Clear those shelves some too and counter tops. The changing table in the office goes in the baby's bedroom. Leave the dining room as it is intended, the cats can live without the cat tower and don't put a computer in there. No one will buy their home with a cat tower in an eating area and if they want to sale fast start painting.

They seem like they are constantly running around and getting nowhere fast. So in their minds they are busy, but it is more their organization skills. A good example is they showed up at 1:30 p.m. to the Christmas day brunch and that is not good.

And throwing out your drink containers when you work from home should be getting up and putting it in the garbage or recycling...geez

They have a changing table downstairs because it would be inconvenient to go up to his room every time they need to change him. Though I wonder how often they really use it rather than just changing him on the couch or floor or wherever they are.

Cats should have a cat tree/tower. They've shown that even with the tree, the cats go after the furniture occasionally. Without, everything would probably get destroyed. I agree that having it in the dining room may not be the most ideal but, they don't have a ton of options. Unless maybe they put it in the living room where Gaines' play table was.

Daily bumps said today that Finn is 18 pounds, and C&K just said Gaines is 24 pounds...that's only a six pound difference! Gaines really is a tiny lil thing!

I thought that explanation about the Gatorade bottle was odd. I work from home too. I have a trash bin and a recycling bin near my work-space. Granted, given the work that I do, I would be knee deep in cardboard and plastic if i didn't stay on top of it. It's not difficult to keep your trash from piling up. Time management is extremely important when you work from home. You have to hold yourself accountable. I think they have problems because they rarely have a set time to be anywhere aside from maybe MG's classes.

I guess it depends on if they have had the cats declaw. I've seen cat owners homes, but no cat towers. They roam and have their special spots. There is no room for the changing table so that is why I'd move it and walk upstairs to do this.

All were just my opinions/suggestions on a message board which are not relevant to anyone including or especially the YouTubers and based on what was shown in their vlog today with them looking at rearranging a few rooms.

It appears daytime naps come in the door as objective thinking flies out the door, with full time vloggers, imo.

I agree, Cullen's reasoning was ridiculous. Just own it and say you're lazy, it's not like that main floor area is 2 or 5 or 10,000 square feet lol.

Coincidental all this talk about tackling the clutter situation after pages on here discussing it? Or no..

Having your cats declawed is controversial among pet owners and something a lot of vets won't do anymore. New Jersey is trying to become the first state to outright ban it. I agree that if the cats need a cat tower (I know my husband's could use one because she likes being up high away from my dog and likes being able to be high enough where she can walk evenly from one surface like a chair to another like our laps), but yes maybe it should be placed elsewhere.

I think they see these messages. I do think they are a better channel and good parents compared to others for many reasons.

I feel the same way as them. When I worked out of the home, it was way easier to keep it neat. Now that I'm home most of the time, focusing on a newborn and a young child, housework falls so far behind. Once I get a chance to clean one room, my daughter has already distroyed another and the baby wants to cluster feed for 2hours straight.

The difference for me is that they are BOTH home. I would kill to have my SO home to help keep up with the house.

I agree. It's inconsiderate. I know they wanted to meet up with their friends last night, but get a babysitter or stay home. It wasn't cool of them to allow MG to play in the booths behind them. I remember the lumps getting slammed for similar behavior in a restaurant. It's just not something you allow, especially with a kid like MG who will remember everything.

Someone on Bonnie's thread said how it seems common behavior among vloggers to allow their kids to walk on their kitchen surfaces, all except Cullen and Katie. But here we see them thinking it's ok for MG to walk and climb between booths in a restaurant. I find both unhygienic but the booth thing I find disrespectful to both other customers and the restaurant itself.

I work in a restaurant and letting your children get up from the table is never necessary and always irksome. I guarantee the employees were bitching and moaning about them in the back. It's always frustrating when parents let kids play at other tables because that's now one less table the host can sit since there's a child in it, and therefore one less table a server can make money off of. It's disrespectful and infuriating, not to mention gross shoe prints on the booth someone had to clean when they left.

I have to say, I always thought they were a little more strick with MG so the climbing all over the booths shocked me. I guess when one kid does it you kind of have to let your kid do it, but that little boy sat just fine didn't he? I didn't see get up until the cake thing. While I think it was funny, I wouldn't have allowed my child to actually take the cake. A simple I'm sorry to the people he bothered and an explanation about how the cake isn't his would have done wonders. Now I'm wondering, what happens when the camera isn't filming? Is MG actually a handful and disrespectful?
