From that photo and watching the videos, I would have guessed that she was about 8.

She is not typical. Definitely not typical. Especially the braids.

Wow.

I still have my favorite stuffed cat that I've had since I was a baby. However. I don't carry her around or stick her in my shirt. That's just weird for anyone over 8 years old.

To be fair, I looked just about that young at that age (late bloomer). I would not have worn the braids or posed with the stuffed animal, though.

And? I love stuffed animals and slept with an old stuffed dog till two years ago and i am a lot older than her.

She looks like she's 9.

Mommy is probably shooting her up with those puberty delaying drugs they give to transgendered kids.

Sigh, just sigh....

I'm no professional, but I maintain that there is something sketchy going on in the Arndt kids' home life, and I fear that it is something pretty sinister. It is just not normal for a whole family teens and young adults to be this... stunted. And it's not just their love for toys; I've watched a couple of episodes of their show, and this childishness is pervasive in their lives and personalities. For all of their kids to maintain such childlike dispositions into adulthood really suggests to me some kind of abuse... maybe emotional abuse, maybe something else. There is something effed up going on there.

It's definitely peculiar and not normal. I think the parents are nuts for not wanting their children to have actual lives. They keep them cloistered and sheltered without thinking what will happen to them when the parents die or become incapacitated. Such a shame.

The thing that concerns me are not the stuffed animals. I kept stuffed animals till I moved in with my now husband. But she developmentally does not look 15. Is there something wrong with her? Her cheeks still the rounded baby fat look of prepubescence.

There is absolutely something very wrong in that house.

The younger kids all speak with some strange accent, so severe is their isolation from the world. I think they're unconsciously mimicking their father's speech impediment.

She's SIXTEEN? Noo...really?

I still sleep and cuddle with my big stuffed animal, though. I think a lot of people do. However, I don't carry it around wearing pigtails and appearing to be 6... :think:

Exactly. Show that picture to most people and they'll say 13. 15-16 is a HUGE developmental jump.

What strikes me as odd about that photo is her hands. They look large and teenagerish. The rest of her looks about 9-10. I'm sure the camera angle isn't helping but her hands look large.

I just noticed that...that's very creepy.

I watched a video of her, and honestly, I agree. A good friend of mine from high school was similarly childish through college, I'm talking collection of baby dolls on her bed, never dated, and just very young seeming. She also had the most over the top overbearing helicopter mom I've ever met. I never saw anything too awful in that family, but it was pretty clear to almost all of us that her mom's controlling behavior was emotionally stunting her children.

My friend ultimately moved to Japan and seems to be thriving.

The younger Arndts all play with stuffed animals. Wizzy carries them around and talks to them and about them like they're real. She's weeks away from her 16th birthday and that picture was posted today.

There's a video on their site with some of the older "boys" (some are in their 30's) pretending one of the stuffed penguins was destroyed in the washer. The 11 year old son had nearly a complete emotional breakdown over it.

Something is really, really wrong with these people and I have no idea how or why they are doing this to their kids.

Never heard of this family, and went to their site just to see if the girls age could be confirmed there. I can't find anything that says how old she is, but this comment was posted by her brother Luke regarding the stuffed animal picture:

I think that photo of Wizzy was taken back in the fall of 2010, when we were visiting the Outer Banks of North Carolina!

So, if she's nearly 16 now, then she was 13 when this photo was taken. I still think she looks younger, though.

She was 13 when the picture was taken. It says that it was taken in 2010.

She looks years younger than my 13 year old cousin and I would say she seems about on par with the maturity level of my ten year old cousin, but that would be selling him short. If I hadn't looked again at the title of the thread I would have though this picture was several years old.

I wouldn't have pegged her as being a day over eleven or twelve at most. I still enjoy stuffed animals myself, but I don't play with them like a child might. It's more that I love soft, cute things, so I collect them.

It's not the stuffed animal that I find bizarre, but the fact that she looks about 9 in that picture when apparently she was 13.

Why is she called 'Wizzy' if her given name is Mary? Her nickname makes me think of urination.

Her given name is Mary-Elizabeth Anne Arndt which probably became Lizzy which became Wizzy.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
