Jill Duggar is in a tough spot.
Ever since Derick Dillard got fired from Counting On two years ago, her family has been without any steady source of income.
(Jill quit the show as a gesture of solidarity -- a move she probably regrets these days.)
All Duggars are expected to devote their adult lives to two equally important pursuits:
Helping to enrich the family media empire, and cranking out a whole lot of babies.
Unfortunately, Jill seems to have little interest in either objective at the moment,
Not only does her current financial situation prohibit further family expansion, it seems Jill finds raising two boys to be such a handful that she's considering closing up shop.
Just one week after Jill and Derick revealed that they're expanding their family with the addition of a new puppy, Jill took to Instagram to vent her frustrations over the ever-increasing demands of mom life.
Yes, it seems the situation at Casa de Dillard got a little raucous over the weekend.
It all started when Jill's sons Sam and Israel decided to get out of bed and redecorate the kitchen.
"This is me frustrated," Dillard said in her Instagram story documenting the incident.
"[My son] is screaming at me because he wants a game. I just told them to go lay down or go outside until mommy can cool down and handle this situation."
And the chocolate sauce all over the kitchen wasn't the only mess Jill had to contend with.
It seems Sam and Israel also drew all over the walls with a pencil, which forced Jill to clean up with an eraser.
"Just venting over here... [laugh out loud]," Jill captioned her post in an effort to keep the mood light.
Of course, in the initial video, Jill griped that her life is almost unbearably stressful with "just two kids" -- a comment that's led many to the conclusion that she and Derick are done having children,
Fortunately, Jill has figured out a brilliant strategy for preventing more offspring from entering her life -- birth control.
Yes, that might sound obvious, but most Duggars view birth control pills as the devil's Tic Tacs.
The Dillards have admitted to using birth control in the past, a fact that alarmed fans, as it was widely assumed that their faith forbade them from doing so.
In any event, the situation at Jill's house eventually calmed down, as the boys became distracted by a neighbor's dog.
And it seems Jill's been benefitting from a time-tested coping mechanism of her own:
"Have lots of good sex!" Derick wrote in a recent blog post about what he considers to be the keys to a successful marriage.
"You both need this time together regularly (5-6 times (or more) a week is a good start)," Dillard added.
"Guys, you need to keep yourself 'joyfully available' for your wife, because only you can fulfill certain desires she might have."
Needless to say, it's a very good thing that these two don't share her parents' views on birth control!
