We Are Back. Again. Part I: Ranfords

Christmas is over, New Year is gone, I'm out of excuses. Back to weekly posting plan.


And, so, what's going on in Ranford household?

To be honest, not much. Life continued in familiar, chaotic misery.

Viola started a new parenting strategy. You put a crying baby on floor and lecture it. Very fundie-like, and very unproductive.

She decided to share this wisdom to the world with her first book. Basically, it’s a collection of her blog posts, but readers now must pay money for it. 
Smart life choices!

Reed is a bit of a bully towards Huckleberry. He gets along with twins and doesn't care about quads yet, but every time he sees Huck with a toy, he takes it away. 
Zachary and Viola would encourage Huck to give Reed his favorite childhood position, but, unfortunately, Huckleberry doesn't have anything that belongs just to him.

But Reed has a good side, too. He catches more fishes in one day than Zachary has managed to catch in his entire life.

The fishes Reed provides is the main food source for entire family now.

And he remembers to pick up all the old bottles from kitchen floor. And, trust me, there are lot of bottles.

#StoryTime: During one night a total stranger entered a house!!! Viola was busy potty training Huckleberry and didn't notice until it was too late!

The ungodly stranger turned out to be a hobby instructor! They are almost as bad as social workers, running around and telling kids that it's ok to enjoy something!!
(Apparently, Forest likes this one particular toy so much he has gained enough enthusiasm to be in zone. And he is only toddler. I'll take it as a sign.)

And, yes, no pregnancy announcement from Ranfords... Have Lord closed Viola's womb? Without giving her a precious little baby girl? Or is this just temporally hardship that will be overcome with combination of praying and sweet fellowshiping? Viola sure hopes so.

Dang... having a TODDLER get to that level where a Hobby Instructor turns up? I’ve had it happen with kids but not toddlers! 

That’s a lot of sons. You could end up with an Arndt-style situation if you’re not careful :pb_lol::pb_lol:

      I thought Henry was Sam for a moment (ok, for an embarrasing long moment, while I tried to make sense of the photo, caption and why Jill posted something coherent on Jessa' account... Blaming a warm night with bad sleep.)

      probably those amber beads that are reported to ease teething pain. Ya, it sounds like witchcraft to me, too, but the fundies are all over that one.

      They're also Dangerous AF.

      I can't take a screenshot because I can only find the post on instragram on my phone, but Jessa got a reaction to the pictures of Spurgeon on the mower, someone saying: "don't you think he should be out of diapers by now?".
      To which she responded: "My philosophy is that if they aren't able to do the whole thing from pulling their pants down and getting themselves on the toilet, to pulling their pants back up and washing their hands, then they aren't ready. Otherwhise it feels like it's actually the parent who's potty training and doing all the work *smiley* Lol! I've been around kids, and I'm aware of the signs of readiness. My 2 1/2 yr old is getting close, but not quite there, so we're not rushing it". 
      Especially after reading all the potty train stories here, I'm glad she's not rushing it!

      What was the person who made that 'shouldn't he be out of diapers by now' remark even thinking? Not your place to judge, Lady. Out of all the things you could snark on Jessa for, I think that, especially considering the whole previous discussion about potty training we've had here, this is not a topic to judge her on like that. If she were to have eleventy kids and have the older ones parent and potty train the youngest, then yes, that would be something to snark on, as we do with for example Michelle Duggar and Kelly Bates, but that is a whole different case than judging her (and Spurgeon) for Spurgeon not being potty trained yet.

      Isn't Jeremy's church called something like Grace Church? I think that is a point probably against? the name Grace, it would be a little odd for them to share a name, and not really Jinger and Jeremy's style.

      My guesses:
      Gracia  / Gloria / Fides

      You know, anyone can do an ordinary name like Grace. But the Voulos are much more sophisticated than the average Fundie.

      Might happen that I share my birthday (next week) with a Duggar. But I really DON'T CARE about it ;)
