Right. This is my point - it's all fine and good to have 12, 15, 17 kids, whatever...but I would assume that you actually liked children. Making a toddler sit on a blanket at home QUIETLY for the express purpose
of teaching it that God wants you to sit on a blanket and be trained by mama, is totally wack. It's so developmentally inappropriate and not just enjoying those wall-scribblin,' "I'm a wildebeest!" toddler years. I don't even want to know how potty training works there.
Maybe they don't believe in child development? Perhaps she wishes she could just spring forth fully-formed adults from her loins?
On family input - on the website it says that every day, everyone has their chores daily except when it's "daddy day" and daddy overrides the schedule and takes everyone out for fun! When is Jinger day, I'd like to know? Poor, poor Jinger.
Regarding "children of the corn" style - at least in the photos, all the girls have the exact same haircut and styled the same as mom, all on their left shoulder. Mom, BTW, should get a new free hairstyle while she's on this donation kick, and someone should tell her that the mullet has seen its day.
Regarding cheetoh pie - yes, it's much better with processed cheese food on top. Velveeta melts a little better than the government kind.
