A Kansas elementary school is in the middle of a baby boom! Seven teachers are pregnant at the same time, which is half of the teaching staff. The ladies swear they didn’t plan it this way. Having lined up permanent substitutes to take over during each woman’s maternity leave, the school’s principal Ashley Miller joked to local news station KSN that now what they need was ‘a sponsorship from like Pampers or Huggies.’
The school announced the simultaneous pregnancies on Facebook this week.
‘We are so excited to welcome these EIGHT little tiger cubs to our #265Family! (Yes, we counted correctly.),’ the school wrote – pointing out that one mother is having twins.
‘To me, it just becomes comical because it was a lot when there were three of us and then there were four of us and then there were five of us and then there were seven of us,’ fourth grade teacher Tara Johnson said.
With so many women in the same school expecting at the same time, there have been lots of jokes – including ‘don’t drink the water.’
‘When I actually went in to tell her, I’m like, “By the way, I drank the water,”‘ said third grade teacher Tiffany Schmidt, who is also expecting.
