Kathy talks about seeing herself on TV for the first time and the christening fiasco.

Where to start? Well, first I have to say that everyone I've met on this incredible journey has been so welcoming and supportive. Thanks to you all! 

Watching yourself is hard enough, but I don't think I will ever get used to hearing myself. Now that's funny! Like, who is that, and why is her voice coming out of my mouth? Talk about a Jersey accent, jeez! 

OK, watching the Manzos get the tour of Albie and Christopher's new digs was really fun. The boys are ready for this new challenge. Caroline's beaming smile of pride gave away a little something else though. She put up a great front for as long as she could, and then there it was... My eyes start to well up, and I felt like I had just swallowed a cantelope whole! I could feel all the strong emotions and thoughts that were going through Albert's mind and heart as well. I applaud and commend him for understanding what Christopher needs to grow and pursue his dreams. Letting go is one of the most difficult and fulfilling moments in a parent's life. 

On the flip side I love seeing the excitement and anticipitation in Albie and Christopher's eyes about their new beginning. Lots of luck boys! You two certainly have what it takes to make things happen. You balance each other and make an unbeatable team! Can't wait to see and hear about all of your experiences. And hey boys, just don't forget about Lauren. She's going to miss you, I'm sure. I love watching the Manzos.
