i have several friends from very large families (up to 12 children in some), and they do not want families that large. they felt they barely got any attention as children and don't want to subject their own kids to that. so most of them have only 2 kids, some have none. weird, huh?
i was watching some show last night, and the octuplet lady was on. she weirded me out. and the kids they talked to looked so sad. their hair didn't look washed, they looked tired. it just wasn't right. can you imagine what bathtime is like there? i babysit for my friend with triplets every now and then, and bathtime is quick, but only because the kids are trained. but 14? sheez! it's not at all like bathing 3. i assume it takes a ton more time, a ton more water, and a lot of extra hands. after all, you can't bathe them and then let them wander around until you're done with the rest. 3 is hard enough, but 14? i don't know how she's going to do it.
