There is so much to say.. but I'll keep it brief and say this really bothers me.

My dad is from a family of 11 & my mom 10 + 3 step-sisters. On each side there are 27 cousins. (on my dad side both of the grandparents passed away & only knew the 3 oldest gkids) today would be my paternial gp 96th wedding anniversary
~~Sam stitches well with others, runs with scissors in her pocket. Cheerful and stupid.

Yes, large families were the norm back in the early part of the last century. I couldn't say what year reliable birth control became readily available.

The son in the article seems determined to have as many as he can. I think it's a bad idea for families, and for the earth.
