Bonus Quoting Quiverfull Duggar Edition: Was Jessa Kidding? August 29, 2016

quotingquiverfullFrom the Sept. 5, 2016 edition of People magazine:

Editor’s note: This is pretty sad and makes me feel very bad for Jessa Duggar Seewald. Here’s what she said about wanting more children after the rough birth of her son Spurgeon.

I was teasing Ben, saying ‘Babe, we are not having any more kids after this,’ I said ‘We are adopting all the rest.’ I don’t really think I was teasing, actually.

She has to be disappointed that she didn’t get the full cover of People magazine like her mother Michelle and sister Jill did upon announcing their last pregnancies. Relegated to a mere page inside with the majority of the page taken up by the announcement photo of Jessa, Ben and Spurgeon. How low the mighty have fallen.
