I don't watch them. I used to watch the Duggars here and there though so I know what your talking about.

My kids are angels....whenever people are watching, lol!

Well I guess if your house is a mess and your kids act up then you don't volunteer to go on tv, lol.

I think my kids are normal. My house is kind of a mess. I like my life too.

If you get to feeling down check out one of those Nanny 911 shows...all of a sudden your children WILL seem like angels.

I have watched the duggars from time to time, It's nice to see how another large family organizes things, it was probably a lot crazier when her oldest children were younger.

I agree with Kristina! Our house had gotten so much quieter now that we have a few older ones, 12, 10. and 7. Our house is organzied and clean. We just keep it that way. We have cleaning every Wed, we expect beds made everyday, rooms clean, etc. Kids do the dishwasher, I do laundry and they put away. It works for us.

I'm not big on that kind of reality tv. The most 'reality' I'll go is cooking competition shows.

I have seen them though. Our house isn't crazy, but it's not chaos either. I just don't have my older kids raise my younger ones.

my house is decently clean but its only because I have alot of help from other adults, definitely not from the kids! Its chaotic and loud and someone is always fighting or looking for a bandaid, but I kind of like chaos so its awesome! If all the kids were so polite and sharey and cleany, I wouldn't fit in

Lucky mother to five!
