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.)
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.
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 .

I just found out my fundie ex (who I have referred to many times on here) has gotten remarried. We were emailing back and forth last year and he said he was content being single. So I guess they had a Duggar style courtship and did that quick!! (Maybe he saw that John David is in a courtship and that prompted it?) I hope he has grown and matured since we've been apart and I hope he treats his new wife a hell of a lot better than he treated me! The only thing I'm pissed about is that he lives at the coast now, which is the one thing I wanted the entire time we were married. It's pretty funny that he's in a place that's known for its wineries because he's a Baptist and alcohol is all kinds of evil!!111!!1!
Had to deal with a jackass playing the "bumbling male" card at work today. He was creepy as hell. Bless my boss for staying close by in case the situation got out of hand. Pretending to be an idiot does not excuse inappropriate comments and actions.
