'Kate Plus 8' Recap: Kate's Sweet Comments Leave Us Teary!

Kate Gosselin Kate Gosselin might have been feeling a lot of stress leading up to the 10th birthday celebration for her sextuplets, but this week we saw it was all worth it -- and more! Sure, Kate was harried, frantic, and stressed to the max. She was the first to admit to the cameras that she is a perfectionist, and when she has her heart set on something, she's got to have it. But even type-A mom Kate was able to let go and see that her party was a success.

I don't know how she did it without keeling over. I got tired just watching her put together the massive carnival-themed party that was an homage to the kids' 3rd birthday. Kate had a lot of prep to do, including buying dozens of fish to give away and trying to build a huge cake that looked like a carnival tent for the kids. But the stress never got to her. 

It seems like from how happy she was with the end results, Kate has learned a lot over the past few years. Foremost among those things? Perspective and an awestruck level of wonder and appreciation when it comes to her kids. 

I'm not normally a person easily won over, especially when it comes to reality stars, but it's hard to deny the facts as they are presented: Kate seems so much happier than she ever has before. Rather than roll her eyes and complain constantly about the level of work she has to do, Kate got emotional talking about why the party was so important to her. It's not just another birthday to her, it's a reminder that she has eight healthy children who have made it this far against all odds. That's actually super touching! No, I'm not crying, I just have something in my eye, OKAY?

Do you think Kate has changed?
