This mom sure deserves a break thisMother's Day.

Lyette Reback, of North Palm Beach, Fla., has 16 children ranging in age from 2 to 23, and it's not always easy keeping all of them straight.

"I confuse names all the time," she admits.

Each day begins with a to-do list. "If it doesn't get on the list, it's not gonna happen!" she said.

She home-schools the children, who participate in 88 sports practices each week. Their father, David, is the coach.

And to get around, the family has their own bus.

Laundry — an astonishing 42 loads each week — is a team effort, and all the kids are expected to do their part.

"We're teaching them some good life skills," David said.

The children also help out with preparing meals.

"It usually takes about 35 eggs to make scrambled eggs for the family in the morning," her eldest daughter said.

Living this way is Lyette's dream.

"I always wanted a big family," she said. "I've just been fortunate enough to have an amazing husband [who] wants to do life big and crazy with me... We've been blessed every time."

And the kids love it, too.

"You always have someone to play with or do something fun with," one of the children told Inside Edition.

Incredibly, in the midst of raising her 16 children, Lyette also finds time to run a charity, Believe With Me, which raises money for Gold Star families.

She's currently raising money to buy a new home for the family of Petty Officer Brendon Sandburg, who lost his life in a naval helicopter crash in 2007

Yielding

Nature is steadily yielding to relentless human expansionism.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

It's a joy to get to know this family! I wish I could become a child again and have 15 siblings...

Not only have you imagined yourself in every spot on earth, now you imagine you know this family.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

No one enjoys making your acquaintance. Your mother silently passed away and had herself buried se ...

There you go, insultiing people's mothers again.
And if I insulted yours then you'd to crying to the moderators.
You and your fawning entourage of western propagandists are
so thin skinned about your mothers you'd better not start up
that avenue of insults.
You and your group always lose in that case.
Remember "soapdodger" had to come back as corporal gay.
What will you come back as.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
