How do they do it?

Sometimes I wonder how in the world families with several kids do it. Take for instance, the woman who recently gave birth to octuplets! She already had 6 kids and now add 8 more newborn babies on top of that. Not to mention, she's a single mom. I'd would absolutely die if I had 14 kids being married, let alone if I were a single parent. Life at our house seems crazy enough at times with only 2 kids in the household. I just couldn't even imagine what it would be like many more. Think about it. Waking up in the morning (assuming you even slept at night) and having to change at least 8 diapers, feed 8 crying babies, and trying to get your older kids ready for school. That means having 8 cribs, 8 high chairs, 3 million diapers (slight exaggeration), dozens of bottles, and clothes, clothes, clothes!! Really, I can't even phathom what it would take to support that many babies. As difficult as it may seem to me, there are families that do it every day and thats what they know so it doesn't seem like an issue for them. Families get into a routine of doing what works best for them and it always seems to work out.
