Mommy's home … sort of.

Two days after being booted off Dancing With the Stars, Kate Gosselin returned home Thursday.

Wearing glasses and accompanied by her bodyguard Steve Neild, the reality TV mom, 35, popped by her $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa., to spend some time with her eight children.

But she wasn't there for long.

After a 20-minute visit, she packed her suitcase, hopped into a waiting limousine outside and took off with her bodyguard, leaving her kids with a nanny.

She is set to appear on Live with Regis and Kelly Friday. The show tapes in NYC.

Ironically, Gosselin said that now that she's off DWTS, she can spend more time with her kids. "They'll be glad to have me back," she told Entertainment Tonight Tuesday. "I'm thrilled to have been here and obviously going back to my kids is always a wonderful thing."

Gosselin made no mention of her DWTS ousting in a new TLC blog post. The night after her elimination, she claimed she "spent an exciting evening" packing her kids' school lunches using "piles of Ziploc snack bags."
