I find it difficult to read birth stories and know how to respond.  And I don't understand the aversion to c-sections.  I gave birth to my son 20 years ago when the prevailing thought was to avoid a c

Did people catch her interesting comment in her "random life" post.  She shared that she travelled extensively on her own throughout the fall because John was busy.  Here is her direct quote...."Sadly

I think it says something about how damn beige ChelsJohn are that this thread is 19 hours old and there have been no new posts.

I think it’s because Chelsy never posts anymore. And when she does, it’s just one big photo dump. In her single days, she posted much more often. Just like her unhappily single sister down now. We will know when Allison finds a boyfriend. She will stop posting the pathetic crap she posts now and she will likely post a lot less. 

We should look back on Chelsy’s post about her younger brothers getting married before her. Of course she was in a long term relationship with John when she wrote this and knew he was likely to propose at some point. So she could be as happy and smug as she wanted. Because she knew she was next. Oh how different this is compared to Allison:

I highly recommend reading Chelsy’s lengthy post about her brothers getting married. There’s such a huge contrast to Allison’s posts. There’s so much irony in this one blog post that I honestly can’t point it all out. So you all should read for yourselves.

Right? I’m actually starting to wonder if she was “getting to know” someone last year and it all fell apart. The last time I saw this kind of dramatic posting from a fundie girl, it was Jessica Boyer after her break up and sister’s wedding.

Stud John and Judgy Chelsy have a new nephew named Micah Joe.  He has the same initials as his grandfathers.  Enough with the patriarchal worshipping bullshit!

I wish Chelsy would make a big photo dump of Axton! He’s a little older now so we might be able to tell if he looks more Maxwell or Bontrager.

Not only do they again not name the parents here, they are calling him their 3rd grandson...... no mention of poor Jubilee and the fact Micah is actually their 4th grandCHILD. 

I would be furious if I was Carson or Carolina (Jubilee’s parents, if the Bontragers have failed to mention it).

He’s going to have some super crazy eyes either way.

"3. Don’t be condescending about their single status.

Your new sisters- if they’re single- won’t feel loved by constant superior comments about how wonderful marriage is/how much they are missing out on. They may really want to get married but it’s just not happening currently or they may not be into getting married right now at all; regardless, it’s where they are currently, and acting like they are less than for not being married is no-bueno."

 

This is the funniest blog I have ever seen 😆  She must really hate them.

Wow. That post about little Micah Joe really shows how much more boys are valued in their world than girls. Not “fourth grandchild” but “third grandson”. I hope little Jubilee gets a sister she can be good friends with, because being a girl in fundiedom sucks.

Yeah, I actually commented on their instastory, and they wrote me back saying "oh sorry, we were just saying that it is our third grandson". I replied back that it was a weird way of phrasing it. And I asked how Bryn is doing. It is so weird to me that they didn't say ANYTHING about her. It's normally the first thing you specify - the health of the child and mother. Maybe it doesn't matter when she's only a "sister-in-love"..

That is why I hate patriarchy and Fundies so much.  Just like when Kyle was born Poor Sarah captioned the pic of Smug Joe and Kyle "Joseph and his first born son".  Made me ragey.

According to IG the Bontrager's are in Kansas now and finally get to meet little Axton. 

Do you think they also attended the Church of the Elderly on Sunday? I really hope Chelsy will post more in the future and I'd really love to see a house tour.

Boys are more valued in patriarchy but Bontragers take it a to an extra level. Other fundie families are really excited with the baby girls and all the little kids/grandkids seem to be enjoyed no matter their sex.

Bontragers sexism is so extreme that the birthing mothers are not even praised. Again, other fundies treat well the mothers when they give birth, praise them for their efforts with babies etc. Even Maxwells do it!

They didn’t even bother going to meet Axton, their eldest child’s first baby, for months, presumably because he’s a Maxwell not a Bontrager.

That will never cease to surprise me - they are ALL ABOUT family (it’s the theme of their “ministry”) and Allison seemed so close to Chelsy.

I am from a family that lives very independent lives, I sometimes go years without seeing my parents or sister, and my sister and I have little in common and wouldn’t consider each other “best friends” in any way. Yet my mother has travelled and taken time off work to be at each of my births and my sister spent a week with me after my first baby was born. I would have been SO upset if my mother hadn’t been there when I was having my first and adjusting to motherhood (she was never in the room but was the first to come in and meet the babies after birth). And if I had been attempting an unmedicated homebirth I think she’s the only person apart from my partner I would want there - I certainly wouldn’t want my mother in law, and she’s much warmer than Teri (and wouldn’t drill me in bible verses while I laboured).

They were on tour when the “cousin twins” were born. But they only had to wait a couple weeks before getting home to meet them. And since Bryn gave birth only recently, they didn’t have to wait long to meet Micah. They likely met Micah today or will very soon.

The Bowers girls and Bryn had their mothers there though (assuming Bryn did, she grew up in the same area). I just think births, especially of first babies, are a time when most women need their mothers. And if the Bontragers valued women and their needs they would have made sure Becky and Allison were there for Chelsy, even if it meant buying a few plane tickets and being absent from a few concerts. Elizabeth and Cassidy could have taken over cooking/laundry/piano for a few days.

I agree. Although my mom was useless when I was in labor. She almost passed right the fuck out! She can’t handle it when her kids are in extreme pain. And then my husband almost passed out at the hospital from looking at the blood. I was surrounded by incompetents! But I still love them. Most of the time ;)

      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.
