19 and counting...The Duggars

Meet Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. They currently have 18 children. She is pregnant with #19. They all have names that start with J. The oldest child is 13.

OK that last bit is not true but close.

Let's do some math and put this in perspective.

1 pregnancy = 9 months. 19 X 9 = 171 months. 171 / 12 = 14.25 years. This woman will have been pregnant for 14 years and 3 months of her life (she is 43 right now).

Kara informed me that pregnancy is really bad the last 3 months. So here is some more math.

19 X 3 = 57 months (of 3rd trimester pregnancy) 57 / 12 = 4.75 years. This woman has spent 4 years and 9 months of her life extremely miserable pregnant.

19 Children. That's one more than 18, one less than 20, and 17 more than I have and there are days my children cause me to want to hit myself in the face with a framing hammer.

The Bible is clear that we should be fruitful and multiply but sheesh. I thought that it is important that Kara and I at least replace ourselves in society. But the Duggars have replaced themselves 9 times.

You will notice Dolly Parton in the picture above. She is not one of the Duggar children. I don't think.
It's the female reproductive system, not a clown car.

Istill don't see how they can give each child the attention they need on a daily basis. I was going to also blog about this but didn't get to it. I was impressed by the fact that they haven't received any public assistance and that the children seem to be well adjusted. Still don’t care much for their show but as long as they can support them and Mom still wants to get pregnant more power to them! Reminds me of an old Andrew Dice Clay nursery rhyme “ There was an old lady who lived in a shoe, she had so many children her uterus fell out ohhh” good stuff
