My mother might say, "To each his own."
She's right, of course. The fact that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have chosen to have 19 kids isn't really my business. It's their personal belief system. They're obviously cool with the huge family, and that's all that matters.
But, um ...
I can't help but stare. I can't help but count and recount. 19. Holy crap. 19. I mean, members of my own family have had as many as eight kids. That's a lot. But this is more than twice that.
Anyway, I bring this up because the Duggars are coming to town, courtesy of (no surprises here) Focus on the Family.
According to Springs Bargains:
The Duggar family, of TLC’s 19 Kids And Counting fame, are coming to Focus on the Family this month! They’ll be appearing on Saturday, March 19th from 1:00 to 2:45 PM in the main building “chapelteria”, followed by a book signing from 3 to 5 PM in the Focus Bookstore.
The family will be playing their instruments, giving their testimony, and doing a Q&A. The event is free, but you must get tickets as seating is limited. Starting today, you can pick up your free tickets at the Focus Bookstore and Welcome Center (8685 Explorer Drive).
I got to tell you, I'm tempted to go. But maybe I shouldn't. Because, as Mom would say, "It's impolite to stare."
