I'm sorry, but that house does not appear to me 'messy' in the 'clean but messy' sense. It appears dirty. Hopefully, it's because it has 6 kids and a working grandmother in it, not because that's how it always looks.
How does the welfare system work in the U.S? I know she recieves some food stamps, but does the single parent pension exist in a similar form to here in Australia?
I watched an interview with the Octuplets mother, and many of her responses seemed very odd and quite disjointed. She appeared to relish the celebrity, and spoke of having enough money to have more IVF treatment.
From what I could gather from the interview, she chose to have IVF because she did not have a partner, not because she had trouble concieving. Surely a healthy woman of childbearing age with no fertility problems would have a high likelyhood of carrying all 6 embryos to term. She didn't transfer all 6 because she was worried some wouldn't take, she transfered all 6 so she'd have 6, and had 8.
I felt very sorry for her mother, who was in tears and stated that her daughter went ahead with her latest round of IVF to the detriment of her other 6 children, and against the wishes of her, their grandmother and from what I can gather, their primary breadwinner.
