Ranfords, Days 11 - 12: The Series of Unfortunate Events

Sign in to follow this  


Ok, folks, 
Reed's birth was huge blessing and all, but Ranfords soon started to worry about Satans shenanigans. Because something was wrong, and it had nothing to do with them or their choices.  
First of all, Viola couldnt get pregnant right after giving birth, although Ranfords sure did everything they could about it. 
Poor tent can confirm. O.O



Zacahary was devastated. Will Reed reach his toddlerhood without being a big brother? Will Viola end up having less than 10 children?? Will Zacahary grow old without a quiver full of red haired arrows to show off as a sign of his manliness??? 



Second, even with only one child, parenting was hard. Like, baby sometimes cried and was stinky. Putting him in muddles didn't help. 



Admittedly, Ranfords practiced hands-off parenting, sometimes literally  



But can you blame them? (Well, I can). They had sooo much work, folks. Winter was coming, so they had to fill the refrigerator with food. I mean, Viola had. Zachary did manly work. 



But Ranfords still knew they were doing the right thing. They received small, encouraging blessings every day.
For example, Zachary got a fishing talent badge, although he had only catched one fish in his entire life. 
That does, of course, prove that they are Right Kind of Christians and everything will be provided for them. Somehow. 



Reed grew up into toddler (and Viola wasn't pregnant yet.). He looks like his daddy. He is somewhat neat, very active and outgoing, maximally playful and extremely grouchy. Oh-uh. Little cult leader in making. 
There was no cake or anything. As his birthday present Reed received a new outfit. A proper boy outfit, not that girly pink thing he grew up into. 





His parents, however, celebrated with sweat fellowshiping. And heard a chime! Stranger yelled on them again, just like when they got pregnant with Reed! Its a sign. 
Townie left angry and frustrated, probably to start #FreeReed movement. 



Although pregnant again, Viola still sometimes felt doubts about this lifestyle. As much as she tried to convince herself, count her blessings and control her own thought life, she didn't see a way for this to work out. To keep it sweat and submissive, she took her anger out on garden gnome. 

Viola (inside): "You will never be republican senator, idiot, you can't even figure out how to build a proper house!"


Did I mention that Zachary finished kitchen? Because he did. Viola now could grill their hotdogs inside. 
Only the first time she did, a fire started! (Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa - forgot that grills shouldn't be used inside.)



Fire! Fire! What do you do when fire starts at your home?! Zach had no clue. 



Reed, being smarter than his parents, left the room and entertained himself till it was over. 



Viola almost burned to death, but Zachary saved her. (Viola now can use it as metaphor to talk about Hell and Faith.)



Finally fire burned out. Ranfords lost a grill, a fridge and few old boxes. The biggest loss was food that burned with furniture. 

BUT GUYS! There is a great testimony in it all!!! The SIGN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS! THE TOTAL BLESSING.
 THE FIRST BUMP OF PREGNANCY! It sure means... Something.



Viola was so tired she fell asleep right there.  Zachary worried about her dangerously low needs, possible death and their lost furniture. 
This is going to be a looooooooooooong pregnancy.

      this makes me wonder what daxton and Layla will do when they get older. Will they be so used to having everything posted on social media but they won't think twice about posting everything on their own accounts, or will they resent the invasion of privacy that's been going on since birth and before in Layla's case, so they would absolutely refuse to have anything posted online

      Layla will be a MOMMY DUH!

      I worked with a Naturopath once, he was full of a lot of woo. As a RN I found him to be very pro supplement and herb based, and not very science based.  I also have found through the years that someone who goes by Dr. , usually is not a MD, but wants you to think they are. This guy would introduce himself a "Hi, I'm Dr. Woo Woo." To everyone, including colleagues and random people.

      THIS. I tested positive a FULL WEEK before my period was due with both of my daughters (and one that was a chemical pregnancy between the two of them). The lines were faint, but they were there that early, and they got darker as the days passed. It's 100% possible (and probable) that Lauren had a positive test and knew she was pregnant.

      I had early ultrasounds with both of my daughters at 5 weeks. There was just an empty sac each time. They told me to prepare for a miscarriage both times. Then, a week later, there was a fetal pole at 6 weeks, and another week later, we saw the heartbeat at 7 weeks. Happened exactly the same with both kids. 

      Same situation with my daughter. I had had a 12 week pregnancy loss two months prior to conceiving her and I just had a feeling I was pregnant again but my cycles were still crazy from the loss. I took a test and it was faintly positive, called my doc, went in for ultrasound and I had two sacs measuring just over 4 weeks. Came back a week later and one had developed a fetal pole measuring just over 5 weeks and had a low heart beat and the other was still empty. One more week later Baby A had a strong heartbeat and Baby B had a visible fetal pole measuring only 5wks but no heartbeat and never developed one. So technically I was barely 4 weeks and it was days before my expected period when I found out.

      They go to naturopathic college, and I believe they have to have a 4 year college degree first. 

      Kim does not have a 4-year degree. She dropped out of college and (used to) feel bad about it.

      Tom's snark towards Claudia in that video was completely unacceptable.

      She picked an adorable witch costume, and Tom said, 

      "You wanna be a witch?  That's a big surprise." (sarcasm)

      A few minutes later they find one in her size.  Tom's response?

      "It's totally in your personality, anyways..."

      He finally wraps up by showing what each child picked.  Naturally, he makes a snarky comment about Claudia's choice. 

      "And Claudia's going to be, guess what?  A witch."  

      OMG!  That is a 3 or 4 year old child you're talking about, and I'll tell you something else for free, Tom.  At least she's not a grown ass man, exploiting his grieving family for free clothes, candy, and money.  Get a grip on yourself.  You are no one to be acting like that child is a witch.  She's practically a toddler.  Go sit in the corner somewhere and eat the garbage candy all your "fans" send you.  That child has been through enough.  She doesn't need your bullshit.  Words like that stick with kids.  They aren't as resilient as people tell you they are.

      Oh, and ps-

      I hope spokeswoman Rachel is right, because that baby does need a new carseat.  And the straps?  They are ridiculously loose.  To the point of being useless.  My kids are just about grown, and even I know this shit.  It's not new knowledge.  After 9 kids, it's time to get a clue, Tom.  Maybe put the merry-go-round purchase on hold, and invest in the carseat she actually needs.  I believe Wal-mart sells them.
