Edens Year 11: The Return of the Sister-Mom

neurogirl

395 views

Welcome back to 66 Goodbook Avenue! We've been away for a while, but now we're back with an eventful year 11 in the Eden saga. 

Leviticus began 2020 in a "bear phase" which is SEVERELY testing his fundie parents. (Though at least it's not a "unicorn phase" or something) Here, Eva experiences the trials of a large family as she tries to feed and dress her brood in time for church. It takes a good 2 hours plus one bear-less Leviticus in tears.

Ah what a beautiful Sunday at True Believer's Baptist Church. We are surely in store for an uplifting message of loving thy neighbors whom are destined for Hell :my_angel:

The wholesome gang's all here (baby Ruth not pictured)...including Elsie and Cale! And Elsie has a SHOCKING UPDATE for the Edens...

She's expecting!!!!! Eva is of course, WAY more pregnant with her 9TH BLESSING, and Elsie is only in her first trimester with her first *cough Jill* but what a SWEET SISTER BUMP PIC they took together! God is so good!!!

Eva and Adam also celebrated their 10th anniversary! "I just want to thank the Lord for his greatest blessing to me- my wonderful husband Adam. He works so hard for our family and leads us all closer to Lord. He's a great daddy and also not bad to look at! I thank the Lord for you honey and hope for many wonderful years together! -Eva" "Happy anniversary Eva! How many kids do we have now? -Adam"

8 Adam. You have 8 children now.

Just kidding Adam! You now have 9 children! Welcome to the world baby Samuel! We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you!

Precious baby Ruth aged up to an inquisitive toddler just in the nick of time. She and the next youngest, Judges, will probably be very good friends (both curious) until she has to be trained up as a lady. Enjoy childhood while it lasts Ruth! Come on, give us a smile!

She's so precious.

Ohh! That looks like the face of a fundie who just found out she's been blessed by the Lord again! Get prepared for child 10 Adam! That should be an easy number to remember.

A pregnant Elsie visited the Edens to celebrate Joshua's birthday! This angelic, forgotten toddler is now a good, forgotten 4 year-old. Happy birthday Joshua! Mommy and daddy love you so much, even if they don't know who you are!

As a minor detail, some of the children went to the park and curious little Judges got to be king of his own world for a moment. Free Judges!

But back to the main story, it was getting rough y'all. 9 kids and another on the way. Messes, fights, diapers, the inexorable piles of laundry...something had to be done. 

Congratulations Genesis! For your 11th birthday we got you...a toddler! That's right! Precious first-born Genesis is being promoted to sister-mom and given a buddy of her very own- little 1yr-old Ruth. This was earlier than intended of course, but Genesis is just so mature for her age. And she loves it too! Plus Mama Eva is just far too busy with unsafe diaper changes to have time for her second-youngest. (Or third. Or fourth. Or...)

What a servant's heart you have Genesis!

Lastly, Leviticus' budding preacher's heart has been somewhat hampered by his latest fashion choices, but he's not letting that discourage him.

"Hey Billie- for no reason at all, what's your favorite kind of cake? Also if you don't come back to youth group we're going to have to pray for your soul" - Leviticus, probably

And that's a wrap on 2020/year 11. Everyone still gets to sleep at the same time, and there's only 4 children in each room, even if newly-minted sister-mom Genesis (age 11) is sharing with 1-yr old Ruth. They just insisted on sharing. How precious. Coming up in year 12- which Johnson sister will have their baby first and will Billie ever block Leviticus' number?! For now, Eden's out!

Hmmm. Is there still time for Billie's soul to be saved in time to be a Godly little future helpmeet for Leviticus? ;)

@Jatalie1996 Leviticus is only 9, so there might be time! I would love to see if that’s possible but Leviticus first needs to ditch the stupid bear suit!!!

Out of all the kids I've played, fundie or not, the Bear phase has been the most common by far. Evelyn Smith is in a Loud phase currently, but that's not affecting her much except she shouts angrily sometimes. The autonomous action is "shout bad words" but I'm interpreting that as "I HATE FORNICATORS!" or whatever shite fundies spew.

I’m exhausted just reading this. What is the Jill reference?

@WineGlass According to JRod's April 3 post (after going on about her 12 kids, 5 SEVERE miscarriages, and baby 13 on the way):

"We also enjoyed having my sister – Angie Hillegass- with her 7 children come visit us while we were there.  Angie was (at the time) about 4 1/2 months pregnant and I was over 8 months pregnant.  SPECIAL!!"

Thanks friends! I was delayed because my grad school program is particularly busy atm, and I have some weekends away coming up, but it's nice to know that other people are snark-following the Edens! I may be slower but I hope to steadily see them to at least the end of Eva's fertile years!

I want to see it at least until the children defect and go their own way. 

 

Because every story should have a happy ending.

      Are They All Yours? I'm not interested in anything she has to say, nor do I read her blog. She believes in sinless perfection. She has entire blog posts dedicated to Pearl's Roman series detailing why she agrees with it.

      Lori's post just feels so...I don't know...mocking, cruel, ugly.  She thinks it's all a beautiful journey because she is a "christian."  My in-laws were/are faithful conservative Christians.  In fact, my father-in-law is always telling his doctors "I'm scheduled to preach Sunday; I gotta go home," and it was true. He was always preaching or teaching a Bible class.  

      Christians get to be sad.  Christians get to grieve and be overhelmed.  Christians get to miss their loved ones regardless of their certainty of salvation.  

      This. I wonder how many of her fans are feeling inadequate after reading that.  I don't want to judge Lori because I don't know her personally, but I do want anyone reading this who feels inadequate to know that you aren't faulty and less of a Christian.  

      I wasn't there to say goodbye to any of my grandparents but I treasure my last memories with them. Both of my grandmothers liked food and showed their love with food.  My maternal grandmother passed 9 years ago and my parents cared for her that last year.  Both my mom and dad didn't get to say goodbye to their fathers because they passed before they could hop on a plane and fly out to where they lived.  Both had a much harder time with that loss than with the loss of their mothers for that reason. My mother was there, holding her hand, when her mother passed.  My maternal grandmother loved chocolate ice cream and requested it every day until she died, and why not? She should enjoy her life until the very end!!!   My grandmother wrote wonderful letters that I still treasure. I received her last one, with a birthday card for my 19th birthday, a few days after she died.   I had been looking forward to seeing her in December that year but she died in August.  I'm glad my mother, her baby, got to be there to say goodbye.

      I think Hannie looks like Joy, who looks like Jana... and apparently Jed. First time I've seen that resemblance!

      I don’t understand the whole focus on submission. I can’t wrap my brain around it. DH and I both make decisions as needed- I don’t wait for him and I surely don’t harass the heck out of him, and vice versa. 

      I don’t tell him what to do, he doesn’t tell me what to do. 

      to ask permission for a girls night or something is weird. Just like I would be weirded out if he asked permission to do something. 

      We don’t have chaos and disorder in our home. No one is fighting for control. We do things to help the other and we do nice things for each other- because we love each other.

       

      From the conversation with Ken on 2.0 (and via pm), I've come to the conclusion that a wife taking a subordinate position in marriage and doing everything her husband wants is at the heart of their doctrine.  Women have "needs" while men have needs that they can expect to have met by their wives.  They take the "woman was made for man" verse very seriously, without looking into what that might mean.  She was made for me, she must submit to me, otherwise she's not in the will of God.

      Like you, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around what submission means.  I only tell my husband that he has to do x, y or z if it's something that he has to do and seems to be forgetting to do.  I guess I'd be labeled unsubmissive and controlling for trying to keep us out of disaster zone. 

      Asking permission is for children, not adults.  We will ask each other if it's ok to do something or another out of consideration, not obedience or something like that. 

      Chaos reigns in our home, but not because of control issues. We're chaotic!  Like you, we are together because we love each other. It's a journey that has its ups and downs, but I'd rather live like this than play the "submission game".

      That "cake" looks like a litterbox.
