The Duggars‘ lives have become a steady stream of special occasions, with every week meaning another birthday, birth announcement, or “I do.” As such, it seems like there’s always a festivity on the horizon, and who else to get for the party planning part than…uh, all of the Duggar kids.

Or OK, maybe we don’t see Jenni or Jackson trying to spearhead the latest family gender reveal, per se. It’s just weird that the Duggars even hire (well, “hire”) party-planners for their events, considering it’s usually just the little kids doing the manual labor. And yeah, I get that mainstay coordinator/Duggar satellite Sierra Jo Dominguez will get her hands dirty every once in a while. I’ve seen her like, make a pan of brownies and all that jazz. It just seems that the nature of her job is really delegating tasks to the tiny Duggarettes. 

And I get that Duggar weddings are enormous and the garden variety family shindig has got to be pretty compound-crowding too. It’s just concerning to see these little kids forced into another factory line under the guise of “helping” as we wonder all the while, “Where exactly is Michelle?” 

The world will never know.

In any case, here are just a few times the fam had the Duggar children hard at work for the latest party.
