I guess in a way, with Quiverfull and their teachings, the girls don't think that there is anything else to do. They believe that the only thing that they can is a wife and a mother. So, if you suddenly can't be a mother, which is even better then a wife, what are you? Lost, I would think. I'm sure that Jill is now feeling lost because of another c-section. The Counting On episode with Henry's birth, she clearly wanted what Jessa had; a smooth second delivery. Jill didn't get it and now she may have to change her thinking. I hope she does. Michael Bates is another example, babies don't seem to be in the card for her. So now she has to reevaluate her whole life. A woman should be worth more then how many babies she can push out for Jesus. :dontgetit:

@FlamingFundie If homeschooling works for you and your kid that's great. But it's not tossing a kid to the wolves to enroll them in public school. As you said, it's the only real option for a lot

Meh, I went to public school and I loved it. Sometimes I was bored and sometimes I was challenged. That's life. But I'll go ahead and call my Mom up and chastise her for tossing me to the wolves

As much as Ben seems out of it, I hate to hear all the snark about 'toilet-cleaning' and menial jobs. A jobs a jobs and it seems kind of elitest to me. Just because he's a fundie doesn't mean a job li

My mother - 2 brothers (one died in infancy) 1 sister. My mother was the only one to have children (1 girl, 1 boy (who died at 3 days old). My father - one sister. His sister had 2 children, 1 girl, 1 boy. Neither one of my cousins has married or had children. I have 3 children, 1 daughter, 2 sons. My daughter has 2 daughters and my younger son has 1 son. My mother NEVER got over the fact that my baby brother died and I was blessed with 2 strong, healthy, handsome sons.

I come from a good sized family. My mom has 5 sisters and 3 brothers, my dad has 1 brother and 4 sisters, and I have 4 sisters. My husband has 3 sisters and 2 brothers. Three of my sisters have 2 kids each and one has 5.

My husband and I have talked about having 4 at one point but I think we may have knocked it down to 3 and let's just see what happens. Part of our decision will be based on how long it takes us/and what it takes to get pregnant with each. So far we are close to two years trying for our first. I do feel bad for fundies who feel like the only way to have status in your community or to achieve happiness is to have boat loads of babies. I can't imagine what it would feel like to have that kind of pressure while facing infertility. During the two week wait after my last IUI my husband and I had several conversations about the "what ifs". What if it doesn't work? What if it never works? What about adoption? What if adoption is not for us? What if we decide to live child free lives? We talked about how we would live full, happy lives even if kids are not part of the equation. Is that even a conversation that fundies are allowed to have? Or are they just supposed to keep on trying and trying and hoping for a miracle while never really  moving forward with their lives?

He really is! Compared to Spurgeon, I was afraid he was going to get the "oh, how sweet" comments instead of the "cute baby" comments. But yeah, he is an amazing little kid. :)

@Carm_88, my oldest daughter LOVED her bouncer and so did her dad and I.  We'd put her in it during dinner and eat in peace.

What a cutie. He's growing up to look like his big brother – another mini Jessa.

Also, I need that onesie in adult size...it looks so snug!

A commenter on the instagram post claimed that Meredith looks just like Anna. I don't see her looking like Anna, but WOW she looks like Mackynzie at that age! It's been commented on before, but the resemblance just keeps getting stronger. 

 

Spurgeon, on the other hand, is just ridiculously adorable.

I know everyone says Spurgeon is a mini Jessa, and I totally agree, but he's all Ben in this picture!

This might sound stupid but what exactly does Chick-Fil-A serve? As a non American I'm so confused by this establishment. Chick in the title would imply chicken, but they're dressed as cows? And if it serves beef, isn't it a little gross to have a dress up day as the animals that are being served on your plate? :dontgetit:

I've wondered that myself, but a quick google brings this page https://www.chick-fil-a.com/About/Who-We-Are

aparently they seem to have some weird idea about saving cows and eating chicken, but the reasoning escapes me. Correct me if I'm wrong, but most chicken in the US comes from intensive farming, doesn't it*? So it can't be coming from an ethical standpoint.

 

*and there's nothing to indicate from their site the chicken is free range or anything like that

Their official story is about a cow writing "EAT MKRE CHICKIN" on a billboard is Texas?! So they now don't serve beef? What. The. Fuck. Are these fundies that are intolerant of other religions sure the founders of the chain weren't Hindu? That would explain the not eating cows thing.

So it seems that the cow writing on the billboard thing was from an ad campaign and is not real as per their history page Who'da thunk? 

I can see why the Duggars find them kindred spirits though. They like to rewrite their history too.

Y'all are overthinking the Chik-Fil-A thing a bit. As the name implies, it's a chicken place: fried and grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets, fries, etc.  The cows holding the "eat more chikin" is just an ad campaign that's been going on for ages.

I'm so confused by this post. Did you think that a cow writing on a billboard was real?

The cows holding up eat more chicken signs is just Chik-fil-A trying to be funny. It's pretending that cows want people to go to a chicken restaurant instead of a hamburger restaurant. We don't have this restaurant where I live but I've seen it while traveling. You gotta be in on the joke to get why there is a cow theme.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.
