My Thoughts on the Duggar’s
Before anyone tells me that I have no compassion for losing a child, I do I feel for what has happened to the Duggar’s. I can’t imagine what it would be like to go through something like this. I hope that if Hot Mama and I do decide to have another we don’t have to deal with this. I have had these thoughts before Michelle was pregnant and subsequently miscarried, the timing of this post may not be appropriate but here it is none-the-less.
I will say that they do handle it well with the exception that I don’t know how the two of them can spend any time with any of their children. I understand that the older kids help raise the little ones which is all well and good but do the little kids have any sort of parental attachment that is crucial as kids?
You have 19 kids and there are 24 hours in a day. Let’s say you don’t sleep you get to spend just over an hour with each of your kids. But all parents know that sleeping in very much needed! Even I can attest to that and I only have one!
Not to mention the stress of dealing with a national television audience on a weekly basis! Imagine having a TV crew running around with you all day, look what it did for John and Kate! Granted, they have a very religious background so I don’t see what went on with John and Kate going on with them. Think about announcing to the world and to your family that you are expecting another child and then have a national audience reeling at every step as you deal with your miscarriage. That’s gotta be tough.
Also with Josie their youngest, who was born premature at 25 weeks should also say that maybe it is time to slow it down. Plus think about it, now their oldest is starting to have children and that kid will have aunts and uncles that are younger then she is! That will be awkward at Christmas time… maybe not for the Duggar’s though.
There was even a blogger who wrote a letter of resignation from Michelle Duggar’s uterus, however that blogger took it down after hearing word of the miscarriage. I think that maybe now her uterus might be saying that it can’t handle anymore!
Again, I do feel for what happened to the Duggar’s. I don’t wish this upon anyone. I can’t imagine losing the Kid. I can’t imagine going through what they are going through right now. But how much is to much?
