We've squirrelled away M's baby junk except for some of the bulky or stupid things (enormous baby swing/rocker? bye. Baby towels? No idea how we got so many in the first place... They're tiny and useless!). When/if we have another baby, the only thing I'd really want is a meal train and volunteers to help watch my beloved but high needs elder kid while I was healing and getting to know the newest addition. For everything else, there's Mastercard thrift stores, eBay, hand-me-downs and Amazon.

I guess it's nice that Sierra appreciates it when her husband humbles himself to help out one of their children.  I wonder what she would say if he did what my ex did one time.  He had an appointment

Sierra's last Instagram post is about her husband taking care of their children while she was at an Ob appointment. Part of her caption reads... "Some say that's his job, in order to be a dad, bu

My son is 9 months right now and barely sleeps ever... people are actually mean to him when they find out sometimes (I've lost friends over it) and so I try not to talk about it. But most days I'm so

As long as you have a current car seat, and you know it's origin, it's all good.

Sierra try to spin to two ways to Tuesday and you're still a fundie. Oh and if someone has to humble themselves to tie the shoes of a kid? There's something wrong with that.

Tying your own kid's shoes is 'humbling' now? These people have issues.

and did Mark *choose* to humble himself to tie his own kid's shoes?  are they also humbled by serving dinner to their own kids?  putting coats on them?  giving them baths? talking to them?

she doesn't seem to fully understand what "humble" means.  or "fundie" for that matter.

I think she was the "weeble wobble" in question, not her kids.  The post was a picture of him tying her shoes and her discussing that she is now so big/pregnant that her belly goes into a room before she does and that she can't tie her own shoes anymore.  The post itself wasn't over the top.  She thanked him for bolstering her self esteem whenever she feels down about how she looks.

fair enough, but i'm not "humbled" by helping Mr. CL when he needs it.  if he's sick, i make him soup because he's not up to doing it himself.  if he's working mandatory overtime, i do tasks at home that he would otherwise have done.  if Sierra needs help tying her shoes, why isn't Mark helping her out of sheer common decency?  she makes it sound like he's going out of his way to do a very simple task; maybe this fits into her "choose joy" philosophy, but it comes across as making a big fuss over not much.  YMMV.

Okay, so tying your pregnant wife's shoes is humbling? Sorry, I still don't get it. I mean, I do - they're fundies, so anytime a man manages to put his own pants on he's congratulated and praised - but it's still weird.

I wonder if she saw Jill's post about Derrick and thought she needed to shout out her own husband for something as a result.

I tied my own damn shoes when I was pregnant... Even the day I put them on to go to the hospital to deliver Gryffindor Disappointment. Clearly, THAT husband wasn't the best ever.

I didn't realize that there needed to be an instagram post for every nice thing people do. I opened a door for people today, where's my instagram post? Or is it just for men?

Sometimes I feel like being a fundie wife is basically being a glorified kindergarten teacher for your husband.

Ladies, find someone who loves Rufus and posts on FJ like this poster does. She typed words AND hit the post button. After a stressful last week leading up to Jill Rod's retreat (which ended up being a total snoozefest! Ha!), @Carm_88, you still found the strength to open the door for others AND make this post. #herearesomehashtags #gottamisspelloneoresle #jesus #FJ #rufus #doors #butnotTHEdoors

That reminds me of a sticker chart for a husband that was going around the internet. If he did various tasks then he got stickers, and if he got enough stickers then he got a reward, the list of which included sexual favors. People were sharing it like it was cute and funny, but I thought it just made the husband seem really pathetic and useless if he had to be bribed into taking care of his kids and doing basic chores.

The chart:

What kind of grown ass man has to have a child sticker chart to do simple house duties? How did he survive before the sticker chart? This lady is raising kids and a grown man. Embarrassing for both of them.

Nope. Not cool.  Embarrassing and emasculating.  

My husband may need a detailed grocery list (5 Golden Delicious Apples, 2 rolls of Bounty paper towels, etc) but he can help around the house without any of this nonsense.

Dear God, I hope that chart isn't real. How do you even measure how often a guy puts a toilet seat DOWN? Unless you're checking every time he goes to the bathroom? How do you know he just hadn't been in the bathroom since the last time you (female lady wife) were there?

I think this might be the original. I'm not sure why the other site had to censor "BJ."

It probably is a joke to some extent, but I don't find it particularly funny. It shows how normal it is for fathers to have very little to do with chores and taking care of children. The sad thing is, that wasn't even the only husband sticker chart I saw when I was googling to find it. :my_confused:

It never even crossed my mind that it might be real, I just thought it was a really obnoxious and cringe-worthy joke.

It boggles my mind that grown men apparently need to be treated like preschoolers who completed a simple task. I don't live with my boyfriend currently (there's a bit of an ocean in the way), but I didn't make a massive Instagram post talking about what an awesome specimen of manhood he is for helping me strip the bed in my AirBnB. He's a grown-ass man who knows how to strip a bed. I get not being much for housework or not really liking to cook, but if you're a grown man who needs fawning Instagram posts and sticker charts to be bothered to be a functioning member of a household, you're sad and pathetic.

I have a bunch of men on my facebook who make long, dramatic "babysitting" posts.  Brodawg, I was able to basically supervise kids and attend to their basic needs when I was 10.  The fact that you are making it into some "thing" when you are a grown-ass man is really sad.

There's a show called odd mom out (it's a satirical show making fun of upper east mom's in New York). The background for this scene is about how the mom (Jill) is complaining to her Husband how he'll get a dad parade just for parenting his children and he was like no! But at last: (around 1:10)

      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.
