Would you ever want to be raised...

I was thinking about this the other day after reading on the Duggars. Would you ever want to be raised in a family like theirs?

It seems so simple, as far as the females go. You take care of your siblings and then get married and have children of your own. There's a tiny part of me that finds that super appealing. If pregnancy had not been so hard on me I would have had more kids, I am sure. And the way they go through courtship seems so much simpler than what most of us go through.

All of that said though, I don't think I would ultimately be happy. Still, there's that small part of me that longs for a simpler life. Not that raising kids is simple, but just not having all of the worries when it comes to job, single parenting, etc...

    My mom raised us all by herself as well, all six of us girls. Single parenting is tough but she did it. I have the utmost respect for single mothers. I believe they have a tougher time than those who aren't single.

    I wouldn't mind a simpler life as well and to live off the land. We have a small garden here, but I would like something bigger.

    Although I want a big family, that is too large for me. Lol
