I just saw on People.com that my new issue (that is supposed to arrive on Saturday, but never does, which drives me crazy. I just got last week's issue yesterday which is bs.) will have the Duggars on the cover. You know, that family that had their nineteenth child.
I remember back when they caught the media's attention for becoming pregnant with their 16th child. I thought they were nut jobs. I mean who has that many kids?That can kill you. The uterus can't handle that much that fast right?
Then one day last year (or two years ago), I watched their show. At the time it was called 18 Kids and Counting. You know what? This family really seemed to have it together! They had everything down to a science, all the kids were respectful, no one yelled (thank goodness they don't have my house on reality tv), no one was trying to teach their little brother (Brady) to say boogers and fart all the time, and what especially struck me was this: they are getting by financially. Whoa. They chose to let God to decide how big their family can be, yet they are also financially sound enough to handle what comes their way. I'm sorry, but I can't argue with that. I really can't complain about anything they do, other than her bad hairdo (sorry). Have you noticed her skin? Holy cow that women has a beautiful face...ditch that hair and you have a cute gal on your hands.
So here's my personal opinion: They are good parents raising good kids. They make ends meet. I say more power to them. If they were having baby after baby, but couldn't provide simple things like food and shelter without needing help I would be so bold to call that slightly reckless. I am not meaning to say that you have to put a price on life, but whose responsibility is it to care for kids? (I am liberal so don't even go saying I am bashing welfare or foodstamps people)
Another thing: This is in no way written to offend any one in this planet. This is just my opinion. I have been secretly fascinated by the Duggars for a long time. Why am I losing my patience so frequently and I have "only" four? Why do I have a mortgage on my home and they are debt free? Their house is huge! I am so impressed for lack of a better word.
I am curious as to what you all think of the Duggars. Love them? Hate them? Think they are doing something wrong or right?
