The Duggars aired a special on TLC this week called "20 Duggars, 20 Years" or something like that. No I did not watch it. I am so disturbed by this family that I am not sure I can describe it, but let me try.
In my mind all I think about is poor Duggar Mother Hen's uterus screaming for a break. I'm picturing a deflated balloon that has been stretched for so long the skin of it is translucent. One of these days it might just revolt and fall out of her.
Another thing. When you have given birth to almost 20 children are you still considered a woman or a slippin-slide? (So nasty)
Ok, enough of my being mean. Let me tell you about an ex-friend of mine who is 4th in a total of 12 children. He has psychological issues that I'm not even sure a therapist and drugs could help. Everything to him is a competition, even best friend's girlfriends were a conquest. When you are an older child with that many younger siblings you never truly get to just be a kid. By the time you understand "don't drop the new baby" you are a parent. He and his older siblings were expected to help his mother parent each and every one of the younger kids. This is so selfish on the parent's part. If you want lots of kids, by all means go for it, but don't have so many that YOU can not parent them. Your older kids want to play ball, not change diapers. Also when you have that many kids you can not give them the individual attention they deserve, this is where his psychological problems came from. It is one thing to fight over a bathroom, but when you have to fight for your parent's love and attention it never turns out well.
12 in my ex-friend's family was bad, but with the 19th duggar in inqubation this is just ridiculous. This should be illegal to have that many kids. But in my opinion you should have to take an IQ test to have any in the first place.
I'm gonna go be nauseous now.
