    'just one more baby' becomes six for us couple

    a us couple, already the parents of three-year-old twins, have now welcomed sextuplets into their family after the husband encouraged his wife to have "one more" child.

    kate gosselin, 29, says she was stunned when she learned just how large her family was becoming after husband jonathan gosselin, 27, suggested she might have "just one more".

    though mum is ready to return home, the babies will remain in hospital in hershey, pennsylvania, for six weeks to two months.

    mrs gosselin told nbc's today show that members of their church are signing up to help out with feeding and nappy changing shifts.

    on thursday, three of six cribs donated by delta manufacturing were delivered to the church.

    other companies have donated car seats, high chairs, engraved spoons, clothing and gift cards for nappies and food.

    a pair of prototype triplet strollers are on the way.

    the gosselins will have their own parking space at the supermarket where they shop.

    I'd be shocked to say the least, and counting on those freebees that disposable diaper, babyfood, etc., companies like to give! Thankfully, it is not {{I }} who is looking toward having babies, but my daughter will be soon! She wants twins, I can tell.

    Lucky family. Large families may lack money but they sure have plenty of oportunities for group dynamics

    Just a suggestion but shouldn't someone buy them a TV?

    While working in Radiology I swung around a corner and couldn't help noticing a man standing in the waiting area with THREE sets of twins flanking him, all about a year apart. I asked him if they were all his, and he smiled and nodded, "I have to work three jobs to get by."
    One of the Radiologists walked by and muttered, "I know how to stop that from happening again." (I don't think the man heard him )
    I then asked the man if he was waiting for his wife.
    "Yes, she's in ultrasound. She's expecting . . ..................... twins!!"

    I only had one at a time and couldn't imagine having more than one to take care of, although yes, I know people do it! Kudos to them!!

    WOW! I have a seven year old and a three year old and they run me into the ground! MOMMY, MOMMY,MOMMY! I cannot even go to the bathroom alone. I just cannot imagine. I love the two I have and would not a million for them - but there is no way I could handle that many.
