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

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.)

snapshot_66c7f738_06cc50c5.jpg.729422c68636a005d82dae0f202cd6bf.jpg

 

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.

      When I was pregnant with my first we were at my in laws one evening and  talking girl names (we knew it was a girl). My sis in law says "Why don't you name her Louise?" And I was like ewwww no way! His mom pipes up and says that's her middle name. I was like oops... 😐 Happened again with my 2nd girl and my grandmother, who recommended her name, Hazel. That time I was more careful in staying neutral. 

      My mom's name is Louise. She's always gone by Lucy. I've never heard anyone call her Louise in her life. She hated her name when she was younger and now it's become pretty popular again.

      True, but national data only tells you so much. My son’s first grade class last year had two boys called Malachi and two girls called Zahlie. Neither were in the top 100 the year they were born.

       

      ”Old” names are definitely making a comeback, particularly for girls. Under the age of 8, I know kids called Evelyn, Freya, Florence, Eleanor, Alice, Adelaide, Edith, Estelle, Margot, Constance, Theodore and Herbert.

      I love Adelaide so much, if we ever have another daughter we want to use it (it's a family name) so I'm kind of sad it's getting so popular.

      But as many as she has had, wouldn't identical twins this time have the danger of twin-to-twin whatever that is called?

      Twin to Twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a risk for any multiple pregnancy where two or more babies share the same placenta (monochorionic is the medical term). It can happen in any monochorionic pregnancy which is why monochorionic twins are monitored much more carefully. So Courtney would only be at risk for TTTS she had multiples that shared a placenta.

      I wonder if the parents will be separate from the general population while in prison.  Because even in prison, the prisoners have standards and abusing children marks you as the lowest of the low.

       

      They probably will be put in a unit with other people requiring protection from general population but unless they are in solitary confinement, chances are they will still be targeted by other people in protective custody, not all of them have been convicted of crimes against children or sex crimes.

      Okay, her "all about how awesome I am" poem bugs me. Your skin is as smooth as cotton sheets. What the hell does this even mean? It makes it sound like she woke up with the weave of the cloth imprinted on her face.
