...for a different kind of girl

silent surburban girl releasing her voice, not yet knowing what all she wants to say about her life and the things that make it spin. do you have to be 18 to be here? you'll know when i know.

slowly taking over the world...

If I was married to this man, I'd kindly ask him to take his sperm of magic and get off of me. Good lord. Cripes, if I was one of the 16 previous kids in this family, I'd kick out a Brady Bunch style family conference and sit the folks down for a friendly chat. "Yeah, Pops? Moms? That noise we keep hearing in your room every nine months? Enough! It's gross."

While I have enjoyed being pregnant, being pregnant the equivalent of 10 years of my life would not be cool. Seriously. At some point, I'd want to rock the "I'm not a mom" jeans again. Or a stylish jumper set.

Ha! I love the label! I'll bet her uterus is hanging outside her body at this juncture--he, oh nevermind. :P

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. She had so many children.... Her uterus fell out!

Honestly, these people baffle and befuddle me. Every time they show up in a new Discovery Channel special, I'm transfixed by them. And yet I want to shake them and scream at them. "Knock it off!! Shut down that baby factory already!! You people are crazy!!"

I'm laughing. so. hard. Because I think the same thing. I'd have a perpetual headache or something. "Not tonight, horn dog."

Gotta agree with Savage and Dice, at some point, won't the uterus just say enough is enough??

More cynically, if this were a poor family of color, they wouldn't be anywhere near celebrity status on TV. Geez.

When I read this this morning the first thing I thought was "crap! her uterus is going to FALL OUT!" and then I read that she want's more and I thought "I hope to God her uterus falls out!" and then I felt really sorry for her kids that she has now, because I saw them on tv once, and they're nothing but babysitters for the rest of the brood....
WHY would anyone have that many kids on purpose in this day and age? I don't get it.

Could you imagine 18 people living under one roof? Scary.

I would hate to think how early you would have to get up to acquire a warm shower in that household.

Alike bass fishing, there should be a limit.

The Duggars rock. I see them mentioned on a bunch of blogs, and they always get criticized in the comments, which baffles me, honestly. Like somehow they are a burden on society for having a bunch of children or something. I don't get why we just assume it's a bad thing to have a bunch of kids. She seems like a perfectly happy mother... I seriously doubt that she secretly hates being pregnant or anything!

Nan - H...oh, that's about all of that I can muster up...

CH - I think that procedure will never be the reason why they visit a doctor.

Savage - At this point, I think it's made of military grade steel.

Kelly - Clearly, I'm fascinated by them, too. I watch every show. My mouth usually agap. But I'm a sucker for whatever they're doing.

Rug's - Honestly, I don't know how they have time to get to the procreating. Something to be said for the rigid scheduling that goes on in their home, I suppose.

FH - Valid points, I believe.

Stacie - I suppose the other kids are simply used to it. Every family member has their role kinda thing and all. My thought is (though I know the media projects this simply by asking this as the first quesion to them ) - please, why not enjoy and celebrate the latest baby before even considering another?

Chag - Some days, four living under my roof has me considering the perks of bunking under a bridge. It's a pity I'm just too attached to cable television.

Nocturnal - This set up would no doubt drive those with reclusive natures insane. But I would get up as early possible to get the hottest shower.

Kimmyk - I've read that their food bill is $2,000 a month, which for that many people, I suppose,is reasonable. THough I bet they don't enjoy teh delights of a McDonald's Happy Meal very often. Which, in retrospect, good for them.

FTN - She's very clearly a very happy mother. She's probably one of the happiest mothers walking the planet today. For that, then God bless her. They clearly have the capacity and fortitude to have such a large family. And I clearly buy into them, watching every special, reading whatever article I come across. I think people rip into them purely because in this day when two is the average norm, anything beyond that attracts a curiosity and a "well, better you than me!" mentality. They're young enough they could continue this route for some time to come, and their family adjusts. I should be so routined.

Well, you know, Molly and I have only the utmost appreciation for any couple who will give us the opportunity to say, "Only eight!"
