I just got through listening to some TV program where they interviewed the lady who had 8 kids at one whack, when she had six others running around at home. It's not for me, that's for sure, but according to the rules of family, it's nobody's business but hers and whoever she's convinced to go along with her for the ride. Now if she forgets where she leaves one, or decides to make them work sewing machines in the basement to make fancy dresses for rich ladies who don't have kids of their own to sew, people might make a case for stepping in. But short of that, it's not anyone's place to look down their noses at her, or make noises about who can do what.
The main rule of family is NEVER GET IN BETWEEN SOMEONE AND THEIR MOTHER.
This goes for any mother, and any someones, especially if there are 14 of them at once.
God Bless, Donna
