There Was an Old Woman She Had So Many Children She Didn't Know What to Do Summary

Rosa Vargas, who lives down the street, was left alone with so many children. Her husband left her without money, without a note, without any information of his whereabouts. Esperanza knows that her life must be so difficult, as the Vargas' kids are always getting into trouble, disrespecting people, and causing a raucous. She also realizes that there comes a time when people just stop worrying, though. When enough people look out for the kids and they simply spit in their faces, there is nothing more to be done. Esperanza feels sorry for Rosa Vargas, who is stuck alone in that house with too many children to control.
