Even the magic of television can't edit out the awkward transition Jon & Kate Gosselin are currently living.
In this week's episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, the adorable kids travel to the beach with Mom while their father supervises a kitchen remodeling to accommodate the large brood.
"I don't think I'll ever get used to it," Jon said of the empty home.
Kate, responsible for packing, feeding and transporting the kids, echoed the strain.
"I can do the best that I can do for my kids, I can absolutely make every decision based on them...but I can never make up for Jon. I can't make up for the fact that he's not here," said Kate.
