It's Not Over Yet

Iowa is about to get hit with the winter storm that hit the Rockies not too long ago.  Right now it looks like we're getting several inches of snow over the next couple days.  I cut my job interview trip short and started to head back home, I'll have to do the interview on zoom.  I was looking forward to meeting my potential new employer in person and checking out the town too.  Ugh. 

Here in the upper Midwest it always seems like winter has one last blast before giving up and letting spring come in full time.  In 2018 when I was in Minnesota for school we got hit by a blizzard in April which delayed me getting home for a day.  Two weeks later I was mowing the lawn at home.

      I can only speculate but I truly don’t believe that any of the Mkids are being told what is really going on (rightfully so IMHO, daddy getting caught with CSA images is not a dinner topic). I would not wish that kind of childhood misery or fear on anyone.

      I can also reasonably speculate that Anna does not believe any of it and would probably encourage the kids to pray for daddy’s innocence or some such. Given some of her postings, I would absolutely believe that the kids are already taught about “fake news” and “media lies to hurt daddy and family” etc.

      The “family line” is always taught from birth. I don’t think this situation will change it.

      As for Anna, I’d also believe that she’s still so deep in things that she would be risking hellfire if she didn’t stand by him and keep sweet, even now

      I am with you in speculating that (a) the kids don’t know what Josh is accused of and (b) they have been told and believe that Josh has been accused unfairly.  But it must still be hard on them.

      Kids pick up a lot of anxiety and stuff like that from the adults around them, and the older ones can also pick up that things are being hidden from them.  Poor things. 

      I wonder if there are any kids at church, old enough and knowledgeable enough who caught wind of the Josh scandal and would say something derogatory to one of the M kids about it when no adults are in earshot. It has to be the hot topic in gossip among the parishioners, and kids tend to be nosy and eavesdrop on conversations to learn what’s going on.

      I’ve always hated the term “claps back” or “clapped back” and refuse to read articles that use that in the headline or story.

      Usually people start to introduce food around 6 months in the US. And I just read the advice is now different and you shouldn’t wait to introduce common allergy foods. Some people would wait quite awhile for the common allergy foods like peanut butter. She could definitely introduce foods at 8 months. They might not eat a ton of food but they could try it and see if they like it.

      You do wonder what Voddie thinks of Jesus and John Wayne. Jasmine has read it and thinks it's good, but won't discuss it with her IG fan base. Too close to the bone, I'm guessing. She certainly has a right to set boundaries (as she says) and deem her family off-limits for discussion.

      I have somewhat mixed feelings on this, on the one hand I'm all for letting people just living, and the sins of the fathers shouldn't be visited on the children and all that, but on the other hand she wouldn't have the platform she has but for whose daughter she is, and while I did think the linked post dealt with the particular subject sensitively it didn't really reckon with the impact of her book (in the same way that the Josh Harris' documentary had him fairly evasive on the subject of his book).

      I suppose I would want to ask her what she feels the impact of her book would have been on the sort of person she describes herself as being at 19.

      EDIT: And the book continues to remain in print and be sold!

      I needed to read your advice. I’m sitting here reading this at 3am with my 2 week old who is refusing to sleep.  I have plenty of pumped breast milk I could give him, but was feeling guilty for not breastfeeding him for the third time in three hours.  I think I’ll give in and give him the bottle so we both sleep (although as I typed this he just had a big BM. Maybe working on getting that out was contributing to his wiggles and fussiness.)

      Two of my three had trouble sleeping when they needed to have a bowel movement. Hope you get sleep soon!

      My stubborn middle child refused to take a bottle. He would get angry if someone tried to give him one. I was so thankful when he started cooperating with sippy cups.

      Sounds like your baby is cluster feeding! Totally normal, and I promise, it will pass very soon. I hope the bottle helps and you can get some rest!!
