As much as the cuteness of the Gosselin sextuplets permeates the screen in most episodes, the kids were overshadowed on the latest installment of 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon,. 9PM on TLC) by a horde of infant turtles coming up out of the sand and headed toward the water. As the family clustered around the nest in the dark, Kate Gosselin declared that she wanted to hold them.
One of the boys took it a step further when talking to the cameras later, announcing, "I really want to squeeze them, like my little stuffed animals."
"Me too! Me too!" squealed his brothers in delight next to him on the couch, enraptured by the memory of the event.
But it was eldest daughter Mady who seems to have captured the true message of the multitude of turtles streaming by the family across the sand. "Thank goodness you didn't have that many," she said to Kate, who burst out laughing before agreeing. Could you imagine? This isn't the Duggars, after all!
