#18!

I was just watching the today show and remember that family with 17 kids? well, she's working on #18 now!!! and the today show sent the kids out to get their mom some presents for mother's day and one of the presents was an outfit and the host asked why she got her an outfit and the daughter said because most of her clothes are maternity cuz she's usually pregnant!!! yeah, no sh*t, huh??? and she still says she wants MORE!! the youngest one is barely one year old and I think the oldest is about 19 or 20. they are going to have a reality show on discovery health channel called "On the Road with 16 kids". well, more power to them, cuz it could NEVER be me!

I'm just really curious, will there EVER be a point where they say enough is enough?? they said, oh we leave it in God's hands to give us however many children we have! Okay, so is she gonna be 50 yrs old still spitting them out?? some people have menopause late, and I know they prob WON'T stop having sex, so I guess as long as she has no complicated births or medical problems, she'll be a baby making factory.

Hey Dawn! I saw the show ...

Hey Dawn! I saw the show this morning and I dropped my jaw when she announced her 'surprise'! WTF?! At SOME point her tired body is just going to quit. It seems a little selfish to me; but that's just my humble opinion. All the other kids are young parents to their siblings instead of being 'normal' kids with 'normal' lives and activities. I was never able to have childredn-not for lack of trying, just wasn't meant to be. I'm not the least bit envious of her ability to keep haveng them. I wonder what the father does for employment? It has to cost a FORTUNE for that household. Have they ever said what he does for a living?

I'm not sure what he does ...

I'm not sure what he does BUT they have a HUGE house and lots of washers and dryers and are NOT on public assistance, as far as I know and I think they are home schooled!! and I agree that the older kids are young "parents" to the younger ones too. I'm not sure I agree either but if that's what they want. I don't know if God makes you ABLE to have that many kids that it MEANS you SHOULD...it does seem a little selfish to me too. but what do I know, it's only my opinion from a mother of 3 who is already spread a little too thin as it is!

but I'm sure they get help ...

but I'm sure they get help from some where OTHER than the husband's income, maybe from other businesses or companies for promotional reasons or something...they ARE getting a reality show, so there you go.

when i was in grade ...

when i was in grade school, my friend wanted 12 kids. 6 boys, 6 girls. now...she barely wants one. lol.

The family seems very well ...

The family seems very well grounded - but, that could be for cameras. The house IS huge and pretty nice. I wonder how the teenage kids feel about sharing rooms their whole lives. At some point they're going to want and NEED their privacy! The 20 year old still lives there!
It looked like the "Mom" has lost a lot of weight since the last baby. Poor thing must be so tired. Sigh. Oh well, hafta wait for the show I guess. How many names can you come up with that start with "J" for pete's sake?! I know ... "Jeez"! HA! lol

Wonder how big THEIR ...

Wonder how big THEIR stimulus rebate is going to be? And I bet they even got it on-time!

wow, I didn't think of ...

wow, I didn't think of that nestle!!! 1200 for the parents and 300 for each kid under 18!!! WOWWWWWW!!!

you can bet that they will ...

you can bet that they will be getting paid for that reality show. some people just don't know when to quit of maybe that is the only thing that she can do that makes her feel "fullfilled" what ever the reason i think that there are too many people in the world as it is with out her trying to add 20 more.

OK..have as many kids as ...

OK..have as many kids as you want. Just don't ask US or the MEDIA to support them in the process!!

My mom needs new clothes cos she's pregnant all the time..........

Gee..that's a real SOB story!!

I have actually seen the ...

I have actually seen the other reality show they had on TLC. It is about family's with alot of kids, but that was back when they only had 14 or 15. I never did catch what the dad did, but they are Mormon, and that is what they believe in, if God wants them to have a baby, they get pregnant. The show was about them while they were building the house. I think it took like 7 years or more to build, because they built as they had the money, so they don't owe any money to loans, or credit cards. They pay cash for everything. Then TLC furnished their house on one of the channels makeover shows. I think it is cool. I used to have a babysitter that was from a family that has 12 kids. She was one of the only 2 girls!
