I'm a mum of 16 & have eight teens all under one roof – how I keep on top of the housework and avoid living in mayhem | The Sun
WHILE most parents would agree it's hard keeping on top of the housework and looking after the kids, spare a thought for super mum, Kelly Green.
The mum, in her thirties, from Summerville, South Carolina, has a staggering 16 kids between the ages of 21 and one, with 14 – including EIGHT teens – all still living under her roof.
Stay-at-home mum Kelly and her childhood sweetheart husband Tim – who is in the military – live in a seven bed home, and Kelly runs a tight ship to ensure they are able to keep on top of the housework and chores.
The couple met in 2001 and married three years later, and their huge brood consists of a mix of both biological and adopted children.
The older kids are Amber, 21, Kayla, 20, and Morgan, 20.
They also have eight teens – Braylon, 16, Autumn, 16, Narly, 15, Emma, 14, Apple, 14, Neveah, 14, Slayton, 14, Kenneth, 14, then younger kids David, 11, Riley, nine, Charlie,four, Lucas, three and McKinley, one.

Kelly – who shares her family life with over 600,000 followers on her TikTok account – tells Fabulous online: "My day starts at 5:30am and I do between three and four loads of laundry every day.
"I wake the kids up, make breakfast, get the elementary kids to school, then the middle school, and then high school.
"We get through one gallon of milk in a day, one loaf of bread and spend about $600-$700 every two weeks on groceries."
In the evening, the whole family join in to get the house ready for the next day – a key part of staying on top of the chores.
