I came across a quite an interesting news while browsing Pople's website. It was about this Duggar family who has the 18th child...wow. I wonder where they get all the energy from:P. It makes me wonder if my good friend Kima, formerly known as Silverchild, would be able to top that..hehe.
On a serious note..come to think of it...18 kids and still counting?? As reported:
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of Tontitown, Ark., had their eighteenth child Thursday – Jordyn-Grace Makiya, who joins the rest of her J-named siblings. Jordyn-Grace was born via C-section at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers, weeks before her due date of Jan. 1. She weighed in at 7 lbs, 3 oz and was 20 inches long. "Mother and baby are resting and doing well," says a rep for the Duggar family, whose crowded house is featured on the TLC network show 17 Kids & Counting.
For Jim and Michelle Duggar, eighteen isn't enough. After welcoming a 7-lb., 3 oz. daughter via C-section on Thursday to join their 17 other children, the proud papa tells the Associated Press: "We both would love to have more." The Duggars now have 10 sons and eight daughters, ranging in age from 17 months to 20 years, all with first names starting with the letter J, including the newborn addition, Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar. "The ultimate Christmas gift from God," said Jim tells AP. "She's just absolutely beautiful, like her mom and her sisters." The family's crowded house in Tontitown, Ark., is featured on the TLC network show 17 Kids & Counting, which will have its name updated to reflect the birth of No. 18.
Thought this is not my business but I wonder how they looked after the kids. They have to be quite a well-to-do-family and they must be. If the mother's health is good..she must've been blessed with all the health...just imagine having 18th child and still doing fine. Not only that, already think of having the next..wow.
My sister had has 3 kids and after that the doctor won't let her have another one. This makes me realize how blessed the Duggars family is and they all looked healthy and happy.
Okay, once the 18th child or the younger ones start their schooling, I am quite sure that they will have problem remembering their brothers and sisters names. If it is in Mizoram school, the quesiton would be like:
1. What is your name?: easy
2. What is your mother's name?: which could be answered easily
3. What is your father's name?: another easy question
4. How many brothers and sisters do you have?: getting tough
5. Name them:..aaahhhh
Jokes apart, just want to say ...Congratulations!! :)
