Duggar Family Pregnant with 18th Child

Recommended Posts

A couple of weeks ago, I went to a speaker over lunch that said he had NINETEEN brothers and sisters. Throughout the rest of the talk, I couldn't focus on the subject because I just kept thinking about how it was possible to have 20 children!

I think our taxes are helping to support their 18th, 17th, 16th, etc, children!

Honestly, I think this is cruel. They do make their children do a lot of the work. They keep their kids at home for schooling and wear hand-me-downs. I am not condemning anyone who cannot financially afford to purchase their clothing however, why are you intentionally having more kids if you can't provide for the one's you have?

I'm not surprised! I have a hard time believing that they are having all these children for the right reason-because they want them or that they enjoy the publicity. I also can't figure out how her uterus hasn't ruptured already! Even more, I wonder how she even has any bladder control after carrying and delivering all those babies?

I'll admit though, I'll watch them on TLC because it is all so ridiculous, that it is fascinating!

I think their family works great... they're all loving and well adjusted kids. They really care about their siblings and making the family work isn't a chore, it's just how things work. They aren't caught up on silly materialist items like some families.

 

Have you seen the house they built? It's huge and they built it from the ground up.. the entire family.

 

I personally thinks it's fabulous how they've worked out their systems and only hope that I do as good of a job raising kids... even if I only have one or two.

 

Their oldest kids are already learning trades.. college isn't the only way to get an education.

I think I would go crazy. Like seriously, out of my mind nutso.

 

All the debate of whether or not it's fair to thier kids aside, I could never do this for purely selfish reasons... mainly that I can't imagine how wrecked my body would be after all those babies and secondly, I don't think I could give up so much of my life to raising children.

 

Kudos to them for making it work. Not even in my wildest dreams would I do anything even close though.

I just don't understand how the children get enough attention from their parents. They're a very loving, well-adjusted family (from what I've seen on their show) but in my opinion, one-on-one time with your parents is very important to me & I don't see how they can provide equal time to their children....

 

And also it's great to learn a trade - but were they pushed into thst direction or felt it was necessary? I mean it's a great career, but maybe they only got involved because it would help the family out. Maybe they really want to be a chef, or a banker, or a clown for all we know! lol

 

I just think that enough's enough.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
