Mom of 10 Shares Video Preparing Lunch for All Her Kids
Alicia Dougherty is a mother of a whopping 10 children. Although some view her abilities to look after all of them as admirable, others are simply disgusted.
Mother of 10 Alicia Dougherty, who lives in Pittsford, New York, took to TikTok, sharing a post of her prepping lunch for all her children. There were differing reactions in the comment section.
Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" played in the background as the 40-year-old mom's clip rushed through an obviously extensive job. The overlay text informed viewers that she woke up at 5:00 am to take on this task.
Dougherty made sandwiches, filled up 10 lunch bags, prepared an extensive breakfast, and much more. In the description, she asked:
"Who can guess how long this really took?"
Later on, she explained that she took around 40 minutes in this instance. However, the mother explained it usually extends to about an hour.
Many in the comment section criticized Dougherty, who goes by the username "doughertydozen," for having so many children. Some mockingly used her as an example as to why birth control is important.
This mom of two did so because her boyfriend accused her of doing nothing while he is at work.
Others, however, asked everyone to reserve their judgment. One commentator specifically inquired if anyone had thought about the idea that the mother may have adopted or fostered these children.
In fact, this remark was actually not far off. The 40-year-old adopted 6 children and has 4 biological kids she shares with her husband, Josh.
Many have wondered how exactly Dougherty manages to do all this. The TikTok mom provides a lot of advice in this aspect for her followers, such as planning meals ahead of time.
Many individuals who took to the comment section inquired about how much money is spent on such a huge family. One individual expressed:
"I can't even begin to imagine how much it costs you."
It has been revealed that the groceries amount to, at the very least, $1,000 per week. In terms of online numbers, this clip has reached just past 2.1 million.
Like Dougherty, another mother recently took to TikTok to show how busy her schedule is. This mom of two did so because her boyfriend accused her of doing nothing while he is at work.
22-year-old Sierra Nicole showed herself washing the dishes, making her daughter dinner, changing her son's diaper, and so much more. She wrote in the description that she feels unappreciated.
Last year, an additional stay-at-home mother also took to the online world, proving how busy she is by sharing her whole schedule. The mom of 2 wakes up at 7:00 am every day.
Emma Singer then dresses her children and drops the oldest off at school at 8:00 am. The mother begins housework at around 9:00 am and takes her youngest to the playground later in the day.
Following this, she goes grocery shopping, makes lunch for herself and her youngest, and this is all just a tiny peek into Singer's day. If all these prove anything, it's that mothers are superheroes.
