Holy crap is all I have to say... Is that the Little House on the Prairie music I hear in the background???

This may be an inappropriate comment, but I'm somewhat of an inapproriate commentor:

By the 16th child, that little guy probably just walked out. I mean, even the Pope is calling them to tell them to use condems!

Don't they mean "Arkansas Crazy lady gives birth to 16th accident."

the crazy thing is that THEY WANT MORE KIDS?!?!?!?! i mean, the mom has been pregnant for 18 years straight. among many many other things, it seems like complete physical torture.

Ok, I was going to add to Nelsons innapropriateness...and decided not to.

What did they name this one? Jesus? They all have J names and they HAVE to be running out. Pretty soon, they'll start making them up...like:
Jargaritte
Jammy
Jenise
Jalex
Jirginia
Jandrew
Jelli

I think the next one should be "Jehosaphat Jack-O-lantern Duggar", boy or girl.

So, do you think they have a blog? :)

does anyone in their family have TIME to blog?

okay, i guess i'll be weird and say something positive. as "crazy" as 16 children sounds, y'all were picking on 'em pretty hard.

after i got over the disbelief, i felt incredible admiration for the parents and thought about all the patience they must have.
i mean, sure, having 16 children is NOT on my list, but i cannot get over how blessed this family seems . . . i wasn't meaning "that" way you guys!
i don't know them personally, but they seem to have such a gift with raising a family. i mean, in this society it is awesome to see what seems to be a close-knit family who all pull together as a team. i think about how scary having children is to me - and look at this mother who is so experienced and joyful. i'm impressed.

i dunno . . . just my thoughts as i watched 'em on the news.
i will most likely not have 16 children however!!!

I actually know this family. They used to live next door to my office. The kids are the most polite, well behaved children I have EVER seen in my life. They used to ride their bikes and play behind our office. It still blows me away, though....all those kids. Every time I saw her, she was either pregnant or had just had a baby...

Shauna,
I totally agree! God has gifted these parents in a special way to do such a great job with their children. What a testimony to the fruit of the spirit, huh? Children are indeed a blessing from the Lord.--I think that several of you have hit the nail on the head by pointing out how overwhelmed we would each be if entrusted with such a huge responsibility! So, (I think) we're not criticizing; we're in amazement. :)

Virginia 17/10/05 3:09 PM  

That is definitely my sentiment...complete awe and amazement! I think of their obedience to what they felt was their "call", I think of the time they invest in their family, and I think of the sacrifice the mom and dad make every day for their kids. To each his own...this family blows me away. :)
