Sierra 2: Pregnancy Rumors Again?

Recommended Posts

Wine time!
Snarkasarus Rex

I think a big part of her problem is she is a Duggar hanger-on and not just a fan.  She buys into the fake narrative the family portrays, and beats herself up when she can’t live up to the unrealistic expectations.  She may truly want to stop having/homeschooling kids, but will feel like a failure if she does. Maybe she feels they will judge her for it, so she keeps on going...

And here she is, posting about crying over breakfast because one day her children will grow up and have breakfast with their own children.

She says that her children won't remember their slow Sunday mornings but I guarantee those older boys will remember their mom constantly crying. Especially when she stops the meal she has prepared specifically to give a speech and cry at them.

I really hope she gets some help or at the very least, she and Mark start making some smarter choices

I can’t help but wonder whether Lauren’s comment is actually quite mean. Sierra posts about it being ok to sometimes skip church in order to have a slow and relaxing Sunday (which is absolutely fine imo) and Lauren replies by immediately jumping in and passive-aggressively stating that growing up, she had relaxed Sunday mornings before church. Hm...

Mark needs to get Sierra a therapist. All of her posts now scream that she's gonna snap sooner or later. She's been pouring from an empty jug starting at least three kids ago. 

Lauren's is the perfect bitchy comment. Plausible deniability and looks sweet at first glance. I want to see a fundie Mean Girls/Real Housewives.

I'm beginning to really dislike Lauren.

Sierra needs to distance herself from the Duggars for her own sanity.  She's never going to measure up in their eyes.

Sierra is overwhelmed and depressed. It's only going to get worse with a newborn in the house. I'm worried for her and the kids. Mark needs to see the light.

Absolutely. That comment would only make sense if she had skipped the church part. Lauren can go and preach again about lazy Sunday mornings before going to church when she's had as many kids and as much work to do as Sierra. I wish that for now she was more considerate with the tone of her comments. Her lack of social media skills could be due to her sheltered upbringing and little exposure to media, but Lauren is only a comment and a half away from people stopping to give her the benefit of the doubt. By now, she must have gotten the memo.

The big difference between Sierra and the Duggars is the support system.

I don't remember seeing Sierra ever drop off the kids at family while the grandduggars (at least from the families close by) are always at the TTH.

Does either Sierra or her husband even have family close by?

If the Duggars are their best hope for a break from the kids, I imagine they're disappointed.  I really can't recall a time when the Duggars actually helped someone outside of their family.  They've play acted it a few times, but did they ever really help?  They're really good at getting help, goods, and services from others, though.

Sierra’s mom has been shown to help on occasion but I don’t know how close she lives. She seems to be mostly doing it on her own.

I believe others have mentioned before that they don’t have family nearby. Sierra’s mom might help out occasionally, but I’m almost positive she doesn’t live in the area and can’t help on a regular and consistent basis. Even if she could as might have a job that would keep her from helping anyways. So yes, Sierra is likely doing the vast majority of the work on her own constantly. I’d feel more sympathy for them if she and Mark weren’t constantly making the same poor choices at the expense of the well-being of Sierra and their children.

Oh crap! I didn't realize Mark had gone to the same high school as Sierra! (Where my husband also went!) He's 8 years older than Sierra and 7 years older than my husband, but he might've been in the year below my brother in law.

Sierra's parents still live in Carthage about 1.5ish hours away. I don't know about her dad, but her mom and I have mutual connections on linkedin, and she's definitely working still. I do not know about Mark's family and I don't recall ever seeing them on her IG or blog. Could be they just don't want things shared so publicly, live farther away now, or aren't around.

Yeah, Sierra's mom is only 48 (!!!)* and she works full-time and lives 1.5 hours away as @theotherelise said. Sierra talked about her on her IG multiple times and she seems to be a loving and involved grandma, but it's certainly not the same thing as having a live-in laundry fairy like grandma Duggar, or Braggie Abbie (misformama) whose mom does two days of homeschooling per week plus has all the older ones over for a sleepover once a week. Plus Mark must be working long hours away from home to feed his family on a furniture salesman's salary, which is also pretty unusual in their cult. I'm not surprised Sierra's slowly going stir-crazy with so many young kids and very little help or even adult interaction.

*Just found this out based on this post: https://www.instagram.com/p/BvE4-hvF1TS/. So her mom was 18 when she was born, and Sierra has an older brother too. That must have been pretty tough for her mom/parents and certainly explains some of the hard parts of her childhood Sierra has talked about in the past.

48!?!   Well that may help explain why Sierra was susceptible to the lifestyle.  Just everything... mark would have meant “stability” and kids who love you and just everything. 

I agree that Sierra seems worn out. I am with two kids.  The thing is, I don’t mean worn out like she deserves a medal. I mean worn out and this was avoidable (and they should stop having kids... )

I clicked agree because I do, but also a little laugh.  What a good Christian Lauren is. 

Pretty sure if God is really the one the Bible speaks of, it would be cool with you having a day with your family.  But it’s so nice of Lauren to be so passively judgmental.  I kind of wonder if this is also a little bitchy because Sierra has a million blessings and Lauren had a recent miscarriage.  Way to show what a better Christian you are...

The  four oldest of Sierra’s kids could actually be in school next year. Asher turned 6 in January, Ellyn will be 5 September 1st. Depending on her school district, she might be able to go to kindergarten this school year. She would be home with Edyn who will be 4 this fall, Brooks who will be 2 in December and the newborn. That’s SIGNIFICANTLY more manageable. I can’t see her working but at least she could catch up on laundry, cleaning, have some one on one time with the younger kids.She absolutely has to stop having kids!!  They are all pretty close together too. Her oldest is only 10? 7 kids in 10 years 😳

I'm the same age as Sierra's mom. My kids are 21 & 19, both in school, neither of them worrying or fussing about "settling down" They are enjoying their youth, like they should.

Way back in october 2016 [that was like 2 babies ago], Mark got ordained as some sort of "minister" at their Church.  [actually, his private Instagram profile is labelled "Youth Minister" /www.instagram.com/markansas1/ ]So I really don't know if it is cool for him to skip Sunday services. Perhaps he goes and leaves Sierra to cry over the biscuits.

 

So

I’m wondering, too, but think it’s better not to just give her a pass. It’s fair to take her at face value. Just cause she grew up sheltered doesn’t mean she can’t be passive-aggressive, dishing out mean comments that are disguised as sweet, lovely, girly chit chat.

I'm like 87% sure it was an intentional dig. Conservative Christians are world experts at passive aggressive shaming tactics. Sorry, I mean sweetly exhorting a sister in Christ.

      I am beyond angry at Mr. Briefly's mother. My daughter posted a comment on her own facebook page that discussed parellels between nazi Germany and what is happening today as far as immigrants, detention camps, etc. My MIL left one of the rudest, meanest things I have ever seen. She told me daughter not to post things like that on her own page, she said horrible things. I just posed a long comment to my MIL, and told her that she has destroyed her relationship with her granddaughter and probably any hope of one in the future. My daughter is so hurt, and she is angry. And so am I. I try to be forgiving, but I'm not really inclined to forgive this one. Maybe I will be, but my daughter probably won't ever forgive her for this one. OK, rant over - and thank you for listening.

      Did another photo shoot this morning (strictly trade for prints, because it's a fun hobby), this one for Paul McCartney/Another Day.  one of those incredibly pretty little songs that hides just devastating lyrics behind beautiful harmony:  As she posts another letter to the sound of five People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive It's just another day.  There's a furniture shop near where I live that sells second hand and "unique" furniture/decor.  They had a neat little vanity someone built out of a Singer sewing machine table so we did the photos there, trying to convey the world weariness of the lyrics in a single photo.  It felt good.  We'll see how the prints turn out.
      It always surprises me how well Neptune and I work in these kinds of situations.  We'd had one conversation about this shoot, ten days or a couple weeks ago.  A few key words, couple props that he specifically wanted, not much else.  We walked into the building and started setting up without needing to really talk very much.  Just feels easy and in sync in a really comfortable way.

      Has anybody else had issues with the latest Windows update?  Windows 10 has screwed up a lot of computers, mine included. Apparently,.Microsoft knew that it was going to cause problems and released it anyway. Now they talk like they are working on a problem.  OK, so I guess they are going to pay for the repairs to my laptop since I had to take it in to be fixed?  Due to their stupidity in releasing a known problem and not having a patch ready, but still they should not have released it knowing it was going to do this!!

      Peanut likes sitting on her hidey-house! She’s eating a bit of honeydew melon which the pigs have never had before (although they have had watermelon). 

      There is still a bit of an abscess left; it’s reduced a bit in size but not completely. Our nearest vet clinic is mainly cat/dog related although the woman we’ve been seeing does have an interest/knowledge about small animals. We’re going to contact another clinic who are an exotics centre; our vet said that she could do a slightly more invasive procedure but that it’d be best if we took Peanut to a specialist place. 
      The vet also said today that we can reunite her with Cinnamon and Grace; there was no evidence of a bite mark but we’ll still have to be careful because of where the abscess is. The main reason we kept her separate was so she could recover post-sedation when the drainage site needed to properly heal. 
      I’m not worried about her health-wise in any major sense, but it’ll be a relief when it’s dealt with!

      Received news (from my dermatologist) that I tested positive for ANA, which indicates I have some type of auto-immune problem. But I can't see a rheumatologist until my primary care refers me, and I don't have an appointment with primary care until the 28th. And who knows how long it's going to take me to get into a specialist. So now I just get to sit around thinking about what's potentially wrong with me and being scared shitless about it.

      The substitute pastor dislikes me and my candor and forthrightness. As he was giving pre-worship announcements, I needed to blow my nose. Did it so quietly! — but he interrupted himself with “gesundheit!” — and I felt embarrassed and in retaliation rolled my eyes or scowled every time he looked my way during sermon. Also held subsequent nose-clearings for when HE spoke during service. It felt snarky--right at first, now I’m just mad that these patriarchal bozos foul up the peace of music and hymns and prayers with their attitudes and actions. Thanks to FJ for providing this little forum-ette. I feel better for venting.
