Much better woman than I. Three is enough for me - 19 years since the last one - and it is NOT like riding a bike.

God Bless 'em. Sounds like he already has.

I wish them well but hope they will not have more children.

God has nothing to do with it. The mom and pop having unprotected sex is what's making it happen.

Oh, and vagina...meet clown car.

I feel sorry for the kids. There's no way they're all getting the individual attention they each need from their parents. A sibling taking care of you is not the same.

I have no problem whatsoever with people having large families ---- AS LONG AS THEY CAN AFFORD IT.

Since this family has money of its own, and even home schools, this family is less of a drain on society's resources than a family of two on WIC and Welfare.

Could someone please get this couple some condoms?

I love kids, but I would hate to be pregnant my entire life. In a way I feel sorry for her. But congratulations anyway. Babies are beautiful.
