I Find It Funny That People Compare My Family To The Duggers

And yet I don't really know who they are. I saw an advertisement for them once on tv when we were at my FIL/MIL's house.

I know they have like 20 kids. That's all I know. LOL!



Yes, I have a big family. No, I'm not going to have 20 kids.

We have 9 kids and people have tried to compare us to them until they find out that aside from having a larger than normal family we have very little in common with them. For starters we are atheists.

*shrugs* I think they're a decent family. :) I wouldn't be offended over that comparison. I mean, 20 kids is NUTS, but I know plenty of families IRL w/ 7+ kids whom are wonderful parents, raising super-awesome kids.

I know *I* couldn't do it.... Aside from the fact that my body wouldn't survive anymore pregnancies, I KNOW I couldn't handle more than the 3 that I have.

All the more power to the moms & dads who CAN do it. ;)

We have twins with one on the way. So apparently because we will have 3 kids in the span of 2 years we're very duggar like... mostly b/c DH used to be Mormon lol. It irks me to no end. That people assumer We're going to have dozens of kids. But I think the duggars are pretty amazing; 20 kids and 0 debt?? That's amazing.

Lol! There goes the "only religious families have lots of kids" myth.
