Have you seen this headline yet? (Thank you, Mrs. Nielson, for bringing it to my attention) "Happy Mother's Day: Woman pregnant with 18th child"
This? This I could ponder for a while. If you'd like to read the whole article you should click HERE, but this is about the Duggar family of Arkansas, and TLC / Discovery Channel fame. Seems the old spark still exists between Michelle and Jim Bob!
If I could, I would have several "first reactions" to this news (I've listed my top ten):
Does that woman know how large her carbon footprint is getting?
Do you realize that you now have a better chance of sharing a birthday with a Duggar than of ever winning the lottery?
I wonder if any of these children will ever have more than 2 or 3 kids when they have their own families?
With the oldest being 20 years old, and Michelle showing no signs of slowing down, it is conceivable (lol) that she could show up to her son's wedding pregnant.
Do you think childbirth even hurts by the 18th time?
How many Mother's Day cards does this woman want? Because now she's just being greedy!
I wasn't aware that the Duggar family owned a farm!
Doesn't this woman ever have a headache?
I know it would be exciting to be in Guinness Book of World Records, but I think I'd rather get there by eating pie.
Of course, the above reactions are just me being snarky - as I can barely handle the two kids we've managed to bring in to this world. Gifts from God? Yes, they are! But EIGHTEEN? Eighteen. 18. Children.
Give her strength! (And perhaps a headache once in a while.)
