 Welcome back! Here's a brief recap of what the O'Hurleys have been up to since we last saw them.

Fascinating, I know. With Mark at work all day, Mary-Anne has filled her days with writing and housework. Luckily the worst of her morning sickness has subsided and Baby is growing bigger every minute day! 

One day, Mark came home from work having just received a promotion and a huge bonus. Rather than spend it on useful household appliances that would lift a huge burden off his pregnant wife's shoulders, he decided to take said pregnant wife to a foreign country on a  mission trip! #besthubbyever5a9dfbc028b6f_03-03-18_10-39-21AM.thumb.png.99e8c1feef972ad73571e6582db5b5de.png

As you can see, both Mark and Mary-Anne got in on the proselytizing action. It was so precious to spend time interacting with the Selvadoradians and learning about their culture! They even visited an archaeology museum and saw so many neat artifacts!

They did spend their last evening in Selvadorada having a nice date night outside their villa. Overall, I'd call it a successful what-some-might-call-a-babymoon.

Clearly, traveling abroad to save lost souls paid off, because the Lord blessed them in a major way when they returned home! The house just down the street went up for sale for less than the value of their current home, meaning they were able to buy a new home debt-free right there on the spot! It even had an extra bedroom, allowing Mary-Anne to set up a nursery for Baby! PTL!

Baby O'Hurley's arrival is now imminent, and I'm sure that's not the last time I'll be saying that! Until next time!

- Mark, Mary-Anne, & Baby

      Derek saying hey guys, be available to meet your wife’s needs—that’s unheard of in a lot of fundie circles. 

      I've been a part of three separate fundie groups and all three of them have spoken like this. I'm not sure where the misconception began (and I know every fundie crowd is different) but majority of fundie Christians know that the men have to be equal in meeting the woman's needs.

      As for repair people, my father-in-law was an appliance repair person and began encountering women who would not let him in because their "chaperone" wasn't there yet in his last few years of working. He was very offended by it. He was a professional and a married man devoted to his own wife. It would not have occurred to him to act as if he were neither. 

      Yes, exactly. My dad is an appliance repair man, and honestly - the thought would never cross his mind to take advantage of such situations. He's just so oblivious when it comes to those aspects.

      Baby Nova once brought me three leaves with holes poked for eyes and mouths and told me it was a family portrait. You better believe I mounted and framed it. It hung in the hallway for more than a decade until the leaves finally disintegrated.

      Acknowledgment of our children's efforts is critical to their emotional growth and well being. It seems so small to us but criticism for a "junk sculpture" can be crushing to a little person. Children are not inconveniences to work around and squeeze into the corners of our lives. They aren't meant to be dressed up and trotted out once a week for an Insta pic. Most importantly, kids should never be a prop for fragile eggshell personalities who lack internal strength. 

      What makes it even worse is that Braggie seems to enjoy her own creative outlets (home decorating) yet she squashes and belittles little Theo’s.

      Considering she showed the receipt, I don’t think she got them for free. If she did, she certainly went to great lengths attempting to pretend she paid for them herself. 

      Another thought: If she intends to become pregnant again, it makes sense to keep buying maternity clothes. However, if this is supposed to be her last baby, buying multiple dresses at 8 or 9 months pregnant seems wasteful. 

       

      Wait, did she say this?? I must have missed it. I was under the impression that she was still intending to be quiverfull.

      I love my children’s creativity. I probably praise them too much for it. Anytime my children create something, I want them to tell me all about it. I imagine so much creativity is squashed in fundieland because it doesn’t adhere to one of their many narrow views.

      In keeping with the discussion in the JRod thread, I did find something else to like about this film -- the wood boxes in the first scene:

       

      Spoiler

      and the pottery in a scene near the end (not my exact style, but nice):

      But then, there's this:

      And this:

      Spoiler

      In which Doug admires the fact that Kelly's hair went from jet black with the dye the Lenape had put on it for 10 years, to gleaming blonde (and a whole other texture!) in only one bath. Oddly, her roots are still somewhat darker.

      The Lord works in mysterious ways.
