Call me crazy, but I have become addicted to this show.
I watch the re-runs that are on Lifetime during the afternoons. I don't even know if they make new ones anymore. But I love seeing the different lifestyles and how different women do things. It's also interesting to see what they can contribute to another family and what they can gain from that family.
I don't like some of the drama--some of it is pretty lame. Especially considering the fact that the families signed up for the swap, I don't understand why so many are resistant when the new mom changes the rules for her week in charge. I suppose it's all for TV, maybe the producers tell them to resist the changes.
When I watch, I always think about what I would bring to the swap if I were doing it, but I'm not sure if we are extreme enough in any way that we live to even be able to do it. It seems they always get people who are so extreme one way or another. We try to maintain a pretty balanced life as much as possible--all things in moderation.
Not that I would ever sign up for such a thing. Living with another family and not knowing anyone there would be way too awkward and I doubt I could ever get my husband on board.
Though I did read somewhere that you get compensated quite nicely for doing it. We could certainly use $20K in many different ways.
