The mother of ten shows off her exhausting evening routine, which lasts until midnight – but trolls say her children should pitch in.
A mother of ten has shared her evening routine with her large family, and it appears to be exhausting.
Alicia Dougherty, who runs the Dougherty Dozen page, stays up until the wee hours of the morning packing her children’s lunches, backpacks, and toothbrushes.
She shared a video of her “evening routine after my kids go to bed” on TikTok under the handle @doughertydozen.

“Not everyone telling her what to do, maybe this stuff makes her feel good,” one defended her.
