Well, he had the baseball project and then the wolf project, but neither is what you'd call a blockbuster.
And why wouldn't Joy feel entitled? How many times has she been the recipient of kids "dumped" on her to watch?
Poor DPIART, there really seems to be no place for him from which to rise again. When VF imploded, he should have (had his ego allowed it) made a hail mary grandstand, a la Jimmy Swaggart, to save his "ministry". But in his midlife musings, sick of the responsibilty of job and family, he really thought (if he thought at all) he could run away and land on his feet. Probably no one is more shocked than him that he's neither rich nor famous.

I’m trying to imagine Michelle babysitting any kids without any backup help...not seeing it. I could imagine JB babysitting, alone, before I can envision Michelle.
Maybe if Jim Bob babysits he can make Gideon his signature dish- tuna fish in BBQ sauce.
I think her parents are very well off and have helped them out over the years.
