Gaines was a super "easy" baby and they were super cocky about their parenting. Brooks was "difficult" according to Katie and she had postpartum depression. Their marriage was falling apart so it like she blames Brooks for all of their issues. Gaines is "like her" and Brooks is "like Cullen"

Poor Brooks is the scapegoat and Gaines is the golden child. I feel bad for the poor little guy and wish they would have stopped at one kid. She admitted to not really bonding with him and I don't think she has done much to rectify that.

I am curious to see how much they spend on Gaines for her birthday. No free sponsored gifts for the princess! I am sure she will have a giant birthday party too. Last year she had a "girls only" party and her own brother wasn't even there!

We already know that Katie has zero self-awareness, but one of the biggest indicators of this to me is that she continues to blame a typical, healthy newborn baby for the downward spiral that is their life. It has never occurred to her that there were other stressful things going on that their children, even a newborn, could be picking up on inadvertently. Babies need attention, touch, and face-to-face engagement and positive reinforcement. They act out and make noise when they being ignored in order to get the connection they crave. That poor kid was probably put on the back burner. They've admitted that they were both dealing with depression, addiction, marital problems and a significant drop in income while spending in an out of control way. But no, he was just a difficult baby. She is incapable of admitting that the other issues in their life made them shitty parents who couldn't cope with a baby.

Whenever I see Brooks’ fun little boy face, I feel so so bad for him. Someday, he’ll watch his mother say she never bonded with him the way she did with his sister, how his sister is the “miracle baby” and his mere existence is the sole reason for the downward spiral his parents’ lives took after his birth. Katie never once thought about that. Poor kid.

The neighbor’s house is pending sale at 20k under original asking & basically 66k cheaper than their house.

Have they've resumed their mortgage payments that could explain why they are better prepared for emergency spending (tires, pet)?

I doubt it. They're spending money that they would have spent on the mortgage on other stuff.
Just my assumption.

Katie needs some real therapy not just listening to self help books and Mel Robbins. Not that those things aren't helpful but Katie's issues are much deeper. She just jumps on these trendy self help band wagons for a month and then spirals back down to not being able to handle life. She did the same thing with the healthy eating, waking up at 5 a.m, exercising and now it's bed making thats "changing her life and perspective".

She needs to quit trying to be like all of these other people and just find her own groove and structure for her own life. She just fixates on one thing and then quits cold turkey. Both C&K need professional help for their mental well-being.

I guess Marie Kondo didn't work because she had to get rid of stuff.

Birthday getaway for Princess Gaines.:roll: Please, tell us how she isn’t your favorite child. And got to open one gift before her actual birthday! /gasp

After all these years, how can they not see it? Maybe they do but don’t give a f? Surely their viewers have mentioned it and don’t care to acknowledge because that wouldn’t be the iNfLuEnCeR thing to do.

Yes, and that neighbor's house was much much nicer!

Something from a couple of weeks back I wanted to mention is that Katie didn't touch Brooks, not even when he was upset that Gaines left for school, she did nothing to comfort him. Instead I would almost say she kept pestering or confronting him with repeating to say 'she will be back' after Brooks had clearly given the sign that wasn't the problem because the first time he had responded: I know! All he wanted was room and the right to be sad. He didn't need the _solution_ Katie brought him, like men are inclined to give a solution when women just want to share their feelings. And Katie is a woman! I thought it was quite bold and mean of her to keep saying to him that Gaines would be back and in a cold tone, rather than adjusting herself and trying to think of something else to say after Brooks had let her know that wasn't what he needed.

I was also surprised to learn that Brooks was starting a new school year too. It is plain weird to go buy new school stuff for only one kid, rather than buying school supplies for both of your kids at the same time. Another consequence is that there was also no togetherness like when you go buy with the three/four of you, and Brooks was excluded from her duality with Gaines. There is no valid reason to shop separately, not even that 'Gaines' kindergarten is more seriously school than Brooks' preschool'.

How infuriatingly blatant can you be about putting Brooks on a lower plan. Lastly, wanted to mention how powerless Brooks must feel or will develop to feel, when from the second time Katie repeated Gaines would be back, Brooks kept silent... I know from personal experience.

Gaines is picking her nose too. It is the indiscretion of Brooks' parents they are uploading it and Cullen is guilty as charged too!

So as always Brooks gets the crappy sponsored gifts for his birthday that his lazy parents got for free with absolutely no thought for who he is or what he likes. Then the free trip to Great wolf lodge that just happened to fall near his birthday. I know he enjoyed it but it wasn't something special his parents planned it was a free trip they just used as his birthday. But the princess gets a whole weekend trip that doesn't seem to be sponsored and I am sure will have personalized thoughtful gifts. How do they not see it?

Back to the ridiculous pbk lunch box chronicles I saw an almost identical one at target for $9. Literally the same exact lunch box most likely made from the same materials.

I agree the whole making a big deal about shopping with Gaines for back to school was so biased toward her. Brooks is always an after thought to Katie. She claims it is because she is going to actual kindergarten and not just prek. Yet I doubt she will make a big fuss about Brooks when he goes to kindergarten. Which is so strange to me because he is her "baby".

They are so dysfunctional and clearly back to spending like crazy. They have obviously thrown the budget out the window and make a video every other month to mention how they "budgeted" for this. No one believes you Katie good luck with your foreclosure.

Must be nice to be able to take your kid on a fun birthday trip when you’re in so much “debt” as they claim. I can’t even afford to take a damn weekend getaway with mine!!

Right? My daughter and I actually planned on a little mini break at a nice hotel for her birthday, and then I got hospitalized twice in a month. And used up all my sick time, but have still had to take time off. I could have charged it, but it wouldn't have been responsible.
These two don't get delayed gratification. And they certainly aren't teaching Gaines about it. Brooks is learning, because his mom can't stop blaming him for things that aren't his fault.

My electric company stopped emailing me my bill for whatever reason, so every month I've been calling the automated customer service line to get my balance due when I go to do my online bill pay. I noticed that here in VA I always have to listen to a pre-recorded message stating that they've voluntarily suspended disconnections for customers falling behind on their bills in light of Covid, but they advise that you continue to pay as much of your bill as you can to avoid racking up a huge bill, because all of that will come due at some point. I think here they're only planning on suspending disconnections until mid October. I'm willing to bet that Katie and Cullen also haven't been paying their utilities and are just riding out these "generous payment plans" that companies are offering right now due to the pandemic. Didn't they say that the utilities on the McMansion cost a fortune? That's probably another $300 a month on top of the mortgage they're not paying. I wonder how that works if they ever do sell...maybe that's another reason they're looking to move out-of-state. Not only is it ludicrous that they are $80K+ in debt and they're taking their 6-year-old on a weekend birthday trip to TN, they're traveling out of state during a pandemic. I hope they have fond memories of these birthday trips when those poor kids are wondering why they don't have anything in their college funds.

Did anyone else's heart break for Brooks when he told his mom, with distress in his voice, that the other boys laughed at his Minions mask? She knew full well based on his tone that they were laughing AT the mask, but she turned it around & said "because it's funny?" Poor Brooks sounded exasperated trying to find the words to explain to her, but just gave up.

Katie.. that's what happens when you scour the internet to find your favorite child the perfectly curated masks, but give your "problem" child the last option left at Walmart. He was already embarrassed by the Trolls mask when it was given to him and now he's being laughed at for the Minions one. (Not to mention he noticed Gaines got 1 more than he did.) START TREATING YOUR KIDS FAIRLY!! There's no reason you can't get him some basic plain colored ones, at the very least! Old Navy has a pack of 5 for $12.50. Don't keep making your kid a target at school.. he's treated poorly enough at home.

She claimed they offered a replacement lunchbox that was a different pattern since they were out of the original. Katie then claimed at the end that her 6 year old would be upset if it didn't match the bookbag. I don't have any girls so I guess I could be way off base here but I highly doubt she would be that upset. Katie wants them to match. My son is around the same age and picked out the most random back to school supplies and nothing matches.

I just watched her Instastory about this. She won't accept another lunchbox because it doesn't match? Really? Katie, your white privilege is showing. Why doesn't she just return the Pottery Barn lunchbox and get another $10 one from Aldi, like she did for Brooks. Oh right- because Princess has to have everything match exactly.
This is not white privledge. This has nothing to do with Katie's skin color, it is the financial privledge she grew up with and that is due to her parents working hard. Misusing white privledge to be a derogatory term takes away from it's meaning and further pushes the racial divide that is currently sweeping our nation.

If I ever get the time, I'd go through Katie's IG and highlight every time she has degraded or talked badly about Brooks and send them to her in an email. Cullen mentioned Gaines getting a birthday month ("...and more behind the scenes!!!!!") and Katie just couldn't help but knock Brooks in her post about all the wonderful qualities Gaines has and how different they are.

I've often wondered if Kelley discussed Katie's clear preference for Gaines with her and that's another issue between them; I don't know if I could keep my mouth shut in that situation and you know Kelley has seen a heckuva lot more than we have.

Katie just had to get a dig in at Brook's in Gaines' birthday post. When even bring that up or mention it? She takes every opportunity she can to mistreat that poor baby. I feel so bad for him.

Came here to say the same thing! On top of all of the praises and kind words for Gaines she also had to insult Brooks. She actually allowed Gaines to insult Brooks unchecked. A normal mother would have said back to her how Brooks is just younger and doesn't understand as much and is slightly more impulsive. Not agree with how much smarter and better she is. How does she not see that she has caused issues between these two siblings?

I feel so bad for that poor little guy! How do they not see the difference? Her post about Brooks wasn't even pictures of only him. She didn't mention anything about his qualities and lumped it in with praising great wolf lodge!

Guess what Katie, kids are smart and can pick up on things and Brooks I am sure has noticed the difference in treatment!
