Living in a family with 18 siblings can be tough, especially if many of the child-rearing duties fall on your shoulders, something that seems to happen often to 19 Kids and Countings‘ Jana Duggar.
According to a new report from Radar Online, Jana has become a glorified baby sitter, as her family uses her to take care of her younger brothers and sisters whenever possible — even during her birthday week.
Days before Jana’s 26th birthday, she and brother John David were spotted caring for their younger siblings, who they brought along during a trip to a lumberyard in Arkansas.
The interesting thing here (apart from the fact that Jana is once again baby-sitting), is that the whole encounter was reportedly filmed. And the manager of the lumberyard, Jim Logsdon, shared the details with the publication.
“The production company from Nashville called me last week. It was the day before they wanted to come in and film. Then the normal camera guy for the family called me and then John David did,” Logsdon said.
“He sent over a list of things they needed to build a treehouse. He wanted to make sure we have the stuff. We got it all together.”
Logsdon also revealed that Jana took charge of the whole outing.
He said, “Jana was really the one in charge. We asked her if she needed 4-inch grooves or 8-inch grooves and she knew the answer. She was the one giving all the instructions.”
The family’s purchase reportedly cost $3,500 — so it’s probably going to be a pretty impressive treehouse. And if the reports about filming are true, then you may be able to see it on the small screen, because the Duggars may just be making a comeback.
Either that, or there is another reason they are being filmed that we can’t think of.
