Mom delivers 16th child, thinking of more

Mom delivers 16th child, thinking of more. And to think, my wife and I stopped at 2 kids. I feel kind of bad now. Maybe I should show this story to my wife? I might prove to be inspirational for her.

From the site:

Michelle Duggar just delivered her 16th child, and she's already thinking about doing it again.

Johannah Faith Duggar was born at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday and weighed 7 pounds, 6.5 ounces.

The baby's father, Jim Bob Duggar, a former state representative, said Wednesday that mother and child were doing well. Johannah's birth was especially exciting because it was the first time in eight years the family has had a girl, he said.

Jim Bob Duggar, 40, said he and Michelle, 39, want more children.

Don't feel to bad; we stopped at one. We went with my mom's philosophy of "if you have kids, just have one for a sampler, and that's it." I am not sure how that works since she had 3, but still. The missus saw it, and no, she was not inspired (not that way at least). So, don't worry

I just wonder how they pay for all of those kids along with the 7,000 square foot house, the commercial kitchen, and the four washers and dryers. This article made me very, very tired. And thankful that I stopped at 2.

The Dad owns a real estate business. I think they can afford it. Besides, with 16 kids, think of all the deductions...
