Young Wife's Guide - Two sets of twins under 4 and pregnant again!

Recommended Posts

I had a search, but couldn't find anyone discussing Jami Balmet of Young Wife's Guide (.com for those who are interested). Married at 19, although she and her husband dated since she was 17 and he was 19. She has a website " to help young women find their God-given calling as homemakers!"

More importantly though, she has twins who are three (Malachi and Micah), ANOTHER set of twins who are 11 months-ish (Ryder and Remington) and has just announced she is pregnant again. Holy fertility! The Duggars can only dream!

 

Among her cringeworthy tips are suggesting you ask your dad about how defrauding your outfit is if you still live at home and the  fact that submitting to you rhusband is apparently good ministry because it shows how your relationship with God should be...

good lord, that is nuts and this is how blanket training, sleep training, and hitting your kids starts.....there is no way that one person can handle all those children in such a short amount of time and probably be pregnant again within a another year after the next one is born. This makes me sad for her.

Too bad the second set wasn't triplets, she could have tossed in Rifle and been done with it :pb_rollseyes:

I mean, I can be judgey about a lot of naming trends, but I will NEVER understand naming your child after a weapon.

@teachergirl I wonder if there's any way that TWO people could handle all those children in such a short amount of time!    (Even if there's farming or a work-at-home parent handy (so, four hands), there are still chores and major tasks unless you want to live like the Naugler clan.)  Somebody refresh me on typical milestone ages---my kids use litterboxes and go meow--aren't 3-years typically pretty mobile but working on toilet training, and 11-monthers usually in diapers and toddling or something? What's common age for weaning from breast or bottle to cups?

Good heavens, the sheer amount of laundry you'd have to do with 4 little kids and 2 adults, around a pregnancy in progress....

I know - I am surprised she hasn't cracked already! At least I guess she already had twin practice when the second set came along - what if this pregnancy is twins again and she'll have six under five??

Or "Heistheway"

Does anyone else read that as "heist heway"?

Funny, the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear "Remington" is not a weapon, but the artist. Remington and Russell were two of my dad's favorite artists.

The second thing that comes to mind is the old television show Remington Steele. *sigh* My best friend and I used to fangirl over the star...

I thought typewriters :=) 

Malachi/Micah and Ryder/ Remington don't seem to go together.  It's like Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Audio Pilot. 

 

I wonder if  mom named one set of twins and dad named another.

Oops I was thinking of Electric beard trimmers and razors from the 1980s Christmas TV ads!

I was about to say that, I hope they use the nick name Remy as it's a long name compared to the other children

Or Ryfle, to win fundie tryndee-name spelling points.

My aunt and uncle had six kids in rapid succession:. B/G twins, girl, B/B twins, boy.  Yes, they were 1960s-era staunch Catholics.  :my_smile:

My uncle told me once that they had no idea they were having twins either time until the birth.  He said that with the second set, the doctor came out to the waiting room hysterical laughing, and he (uncle) being the anxious, waiting-room dad, couldn't imagine what could possibly be so funny...poor guy!

Oh joy she has a podcast as well...but I think this blog distracts her from the insane reality of having so many children that young. She's actively convincing herself this is going dandy.

If this next pregnancy is twins again I can finally use one of my favorite Anne of Green Gables quotes

"I like babies in moderation, but twins three times in succession is too much."

Whoa, I can't imagine having two sets of twins. One baby crawling around, chewing on random objects, using up diapers seems like a lot of work. I wouldn't be able to handle that!

It makes me even sadder for her little ones. They didn't choose this lifestyle.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
