Someone should write a parody anthropological study of the tribe of Ardug in some Pacific archipelago.  These people believe that God has made them special and that so long as they have many children

Wasn't the laundry room one of the places Josh acted out sexually?  Between J'chelle's meltdown over laundry, Boob's denial of a new washer, and Joshley's acting out, it would seem that the Duggars ha

So I was recapping Counting On for my partner and I was discussing the whole "I've been informed the wives don't like it being called babysitting" and my partner (who doesn't really snark on this like I do, but he's generally aware of the culture through me) asked something about the authority of the husband and I was like yeah the term is "headship" and he giggled for a good five minutes and then said that the phrase sounds like the world's worst video game. 

Not really sure where to put this but I just thought some of you might appreciate it.

ETA: He has just informed me he will only be referring to the birth of Spurgeon Elliot Seewald as "the emerging (pronounced a bit like he is saying "emergion") of Spurgeon"

Another Smuggar sighting!!!
 
I was just at the Fayetteville Aldis and there was Josh, pushing a cart full of discount tater tots and cream of mushroom soup.  Right behind him was Anna with her own cart overflowing with bananas and yellow cake mix !!!

Looks like Josh is buying the stuff for more TTC, and Anna is buying dessert.  How many people are they expecting to feed?

What birthdays are coming up?  Baby Izzy? Might someone be flying back from DANGEROUSCINTRALAMERICA?

I thought most of the Duggars were sick of TTC.

I think some of them said they didn't like it all that much, and in one of the "looking back" eps, the older girls said that for a while they hated it because they ended eating it 3x a week or more between guests wanting it for dinner and people making it for them, because they thought it was the family's favorite.

Maybe they are having a big "welcome home, Josh!" party. Blech. A party like that deserves TTC.

Since I guess everyone around where they live is  aware of Joshley's transgressions, I wonder how he will be greeted by  the general public there. "Hi Joshley, you shameless thing you!" might do for starters. Or maybe they are used to this after living near the Duggies for so long.

I guess this is disrespectful. People will surely stare.

I wonder if JB is thinking of stepping into Gothard's footsteps since he is such a proponent of Gothard's. How is this next generation going to get homeschool propaganda, etc since it is a ship w/o a rudder right now.

Well, when the first Josh scandal broke,  there were many comments here and elsewhere that it was almost common knowledge among their friends and in the community that Josh was a creeper.  So he is probably not getting too much of a reaction from people now.  I am surprised that someone hasn't posted pictures of him though.  I could see some people whipping out their phones to get pictures of the shamed Josh to share on social media

That community does not like the Duggars, but the fact that no one sold the dirt to the tabloids long ago suggests that it may be one of those communities that don't share a lot of gossip about people in their community with "outsiders."

They may not want to become a source of Duggar information to the world because it goes against their community values.  

BTW,  unlike the furniture store sighting, this Aldi one seems exaggerated and possibly inaccurate.  I would have liked to see a pic of the grocery carts. ;)

Maybe not. It is a small town, people have manners. Maybe more of the whisper from a little distance, almost as bad I guess.

Yes, I was being sarcastic with the shameless thing you remark.....I would just run the other way. He is too much for me.

Another CDAN Duggar Blind. I don't know who would do this, but read this with a heavy grain of salt. I think it could be fake, but if this were real, it would cause that person to have some explaining to do. Not sure if this falls into inappropriate speculation. Not sure what source is bringing this, if it is Famy, some Duggar fan fiction, or TLC is making these blinds to give publicity for Counting on.

Well, that blind item is deliberately vague. If it were true, it could apply to any of the Duggar boys, since there's no date.

One commenter said there was a picture of Jason Duggar showing what he/she thought was a gang sign.

There were some pictures of Jason making a sign. It was the British version of the middle finger. Really doubt that it was a gang sign.

Joy just said she is "trying to grow out of that" when talking about how she used to be a tomboy. That makes me sad (unless it's what she really wants...but her wording makes me believe it's all about what a true lady should like or how she should be.) You go play in the mud if you want, Joy! Go! Go!

IMO, I think this does fall under inappropriate speculation since the J-teen may be underage.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      It's Friday so yay!  But sweet Jesus I need it to be the end of the day already.  Crappy week and I'm so ready for it to be over.
