Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar of "19 Kids and Counting" speak at the Values Voter Summit, which drew nearly 2,000 people to advocate for conservative causes, on Sept. 17, 2010, in Washington, D. C. Michelle Duggar isnt big on leaving well enough alone. Well enough, in this prolific procreators case, is 19 children. This week, we learned she wants more.

But at some point, it would seem prudent to be happy with your (abundant) lot. Duggar is 45, well into the gray area where pregnancies are more apt to go awry. The Duggars seem so sincere that it would feel downright insincere to question whether their desire to welcome another child to their brood could have anything to do with the continued relevancy of their nine-season reality show, 19 Kids and Counting.

Time to take all of the blessings they already have and make the most of that. But others many others praise their faith in God. Yet I cant keep thinking that theres a reason most people have a kid or two, maybe three or even four, and then blow the whistle. Kids demand and deserve attention.
