It’s good to have several extra just in case you lose one in a corn maze or something.

Any parents with more than 8 kids please explain the appeal for that may children?

Oh, then maybe, i dunno, don't have 14 kids???

This article makes me think of Home Alone.

I don't have any kids, but it seems that the desire for so many kids is either religious in nature or some kind of variation on a "hoarding" mental illness. ITT... Dad can't count to 14.

It's OK. They just forgot a toddler somewhere. Totes cool though. Leaving children places alone happens all the time. It's not up to the parents or siblings to communicate or notice shit like that. Perfectly fine. Police felt the same way.

What the fuck did that father do for a living??? Seriously. That many kids, that big of a fucking house, Christmas vacations to friggin' Paris!

But how though? His multiple wives all have their needs! And it's not like there's any sort of device that could prevent pregnancy!

Family farm ain't gonna run itself!

The circle of life

So amaizing

They say he was put in a car seat, then must've slipped out while the older kids were going for free donuts. So... how hard is it to notice an empty car seat? Spoiler: not hard. The kids in the other car seats, you would expect to notice, if nothing else...

My uncle was/is obsessed with having kids. He says he just wants a really big family and lots of grand kids. He has 7 right now and I'm sure he'll be trying for more. At least he can somewhat financially support them all but that is only because his wife's parents gave him their house.
