Duggar Boys Room

New video clip featuring Jed Duggar:

duggarsblog.blogspot.com/2013/04/tour-duggar-boys-room.html

 

I watched it through 3 times, counting beds. Jed says there are 10 for the 8 boys, There are 8 + 1 futon + 1 trundle bed. And why do the boys get one each + 2 spares, while the girls double up? Hmmm? Oh, right, that designer gave them pretty white beds that don't stack and have huge head and foot boards. Well, the girls' mattresses are probably years younger than some of the boys - those are the bunks from their rental houses.

 

 

Why did I just waste valuable homework time on that?

The Duggars are too cheap to buy new beds for the girls... They had 3 less girls in the girls room when that furniture was bought for them. Those older girls deserve to have their own beds. Hell, they have no chance of passing a homestudy if they want to adopt with the girls room the way it is.

In the last episode, Joy was shown sleeping on the top bunk of a white frame bunk bed opposite another bunk bed. If you add those 4 beds to the five original beds for the older girls, it appears there are enough beds for all the girls. I think the little ones just sleep where they drop (fully clothed) and the older ones then sleep wherever.

In my experience it is not unusual for kids to fall asleep in odd places. My boys often climbed into each others beds. I have a beautiful photo of one of them, about 18 months old, asleep on top of a tallboy. (No idea how or why he got up there.) Foster kids were often found asleep in wardrobes or under desks, which I usually thought was a security thing.

What I don't understand about the Duggars is why the kids don't all have their own beds and why the adults don't put the kids into their own beds, even if they have fallen asleep elsewhere? My husband and I always did a lap of the house when the kids were little to check everyone was in bed and covered over before we went to bed ourselves. Doesn't anyone in the Duggar household care enough to do this?

If there are 10 beds for 8 boys, isn't a boy missing. Maybe John David made a successful escape.

the duggars strike me as the type of family that would just line the floor with a bunk of mattresses, letting the kids curl up wherever they fall and just make a little nest of blankets.

I guess they could do this with futon style mats. after all, they have done asia.

My kids used to fall asleep in my bed, or the tv room sometimes,but we always put them in their own beds before we went to sleep, too.(and occasionally put pj's on a sleeping kid,because they'll sleep better)

At about :07, is that a picture of teenage Jim Bob on the dresser? Why? Is it to mock his sons about how they have to share a room with 8 other people when he didn't have to do so at their age?

OMG, Jed's bed was actually made! And a couple of the others were, too! :shock:

I view myself as a masochist in situations like that. I would say welcome to the club, but that's probably not a good thing.

And I hope the homework time worked out okay. :wink-penguin:

Didn't it say something about it being for 8 brothers, so one would include Jed, and maybe still a bed from when Josh was there?

Could be cause Jackson still sleeps in with the girls, he was shown crashed out on the floor in the girl's room in a recent episode.

Jed said it was Josh who'd moved out. Maybe my math is wrong. Anyone care to suffer through the video again to check?

Fiiiine. You all owe me.

Turns out, all Jed actually said was that there are ten beds, and all the boys who are home sleep in the room.

The 8 out of 9 or 10 was from commentary in the post itself, not the video. So maybe JD is gone?

This is what it says at the top of the clip:

"Jedidiah Duggar gives viewers a tour of the room that he shares with eight of his nine brothers (all but Josh):"

I don't see what is so confusing. He, Jedidiah ( 1 person and one bed ) shares the room with eight brothers ( eight people = 8 beds ). His ninth brother, Josh ( 1 person and 1 bed ) no longer lives at home. So there are 9 people and 10 beds. All the boys were born when they got the house so it makes sense that they had beds for all of them.

      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.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
