While I tend to agree with you I think the non-favoured Rod girls have a better shot, simply because they would transfer to the new family.  Of course they'd have to time it so Jill was distracted by something to do with her favourites.

I’m pretty sure that if any Rod girl caught the attention of any high profile fundie lad, or even a fundie lad adjacent to a high profile family (like a Keller boy) she would instantly become Jill’s favourite and every week would suddenly be her week.

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

@Hane,  I was just reading an article the other day about an experienced sailor who had a psychotic break while sailing from Beaufort, SC down to the Caribbean, attacked the captain and ended up jumping or being swept overboard.  His scopolamine patch, which he used for his sea sickness, was to blame for the psychotic break.  Also, if you saw the episode of Mad Men where Betty gave birth, she had been given scopolamine.  

Nitrous oxide is occasionally used in labor in the US and its use might be growing.  

I've also heard of scopolamine being used as a proverbial "mickey" being slipped into drinks to incapacitate people.

Doesn’t scopolamine make people really gullible/vulnerable to suggestion? Or am I thinking of something else?

Yes, I think that's the one. Makes people vulnerable to suggestion. I've heard stories of criminals giving people scopolamine and then taking them to ATMs and telling them to give them all their money, and they just obey.

I believe it used to be administered to people being interrogated by law enforcement, as a "truth serum". It's not that, but it does help the interrogators get the statements they are looking for, not necessarily truth.

I have used scopalomine patches for sailing, and for bus rides in developing countries where the roads are bad and the bus suspensions worse. They've never made me feel anything but just slightly mellow. And thirsty. Hoo, boy do they make me thirsty.

Allison is visiting Chelsy again. Axton did not disappoint with those Maxwell/Bontrager eyes! His side eye game is fierce.

Oh he’s gorgeous! 

I really wish Chelsy would do an “adjusting to motherhood” blog post. And post her birth story. I’m very disappointed she isn’t blogging more and providing an unauthorised by Steve glimpse into Maxhell. She’s been blogging for a long time - she might just be busy with John and Axton, she might want more privacy, but I hope she’s allowed to keep blogging if she wants to.

She didn’t accept my follow request on Instagram but she has over a thousand followers so surely she accepts some randoms. It’s pretty obvious I’m a fundie follower from my accounts follows though, so maybe that’s why she didn’t accept.

Chelsy has been posting some pretty snarky replies to comments on her blog asking when she will be providing more info on her birth story and adjusting to being a mom.  They are on her most "recent" post announcing that Ax was born.

That response was just rude. All Chelsy had to say was something like “There’s more going on right now and I’ll update when I can. Thanks for following!” The whole you can unfollow if you don’t want to wait was out of line in my opinion.

My guess is that the Bontragers can’t handle anyone disagreeing with them or being negative toward them in any way. I doubt I would like them much more than the Maxwell’s.

The comment that triggeredChelsy's response was a bit passive aggressive. It's her choice whether to share her story and when to do so, she doesn't owe it to anyone just because she use to blog. And making the choice to prioritise spending time with her tiny baby over writing for strangers on the internet is understandable. 

I'll criticise her for being complicit in a patriarchal cult but not for that response. YMMV...

I find it a bit ironic that she doesn't have time to blog, but is clearly checking your blog comments and commenting. You think she just wouldn't bother responding at all.

I agree.  I'm sure if they had asked more nicely she would have responded in kind.

I do hope she continues blogging, but I certainly understand how she might not have as much time.  I know when my dd was an infant, I could barely keep my head above water.

Honestly, I thought Diana was rude in her follow-up response and I don't think Chelsy was out of line responding the way she did.

She made it clear in her first response she's very busy now (understandably) and would post at some future point.  It  seems like Diana should have accepted that instead of "Well you started the story and now we deserve the ending", or whatever she wrote.

And didn't Chelsy share a good portion of the birth story right after Ax was born?

Here's a screenshot of the comment and Chelsy's response. (For any one who doesn't want to bother to look it up.)

Diane was just being a bitch. Chelsy was perfectly lovely in her other responses. Nobody is entitled to her birth story at all, let alone within a certain timeframe.

Another pic of Axton’s intense stare:

It has been a long time since she posted. I hope she doesn’t feel obligated to share her birth story. I’ll give her a pass on the my baby is the cutest because almost everyone says that about their babies.

She can post / share or not as she sees fit. It's her choice, not anyone else's.

What I find questionable - or maybe just typical Maxhellian / Bontrager-ish - is that when she does post three months after the baby is born it's not to give updates or just share pictures or gush about her son and motherhood, but to get money from an affiliate link. In the same week Sarah did an affiliate post about her phone case. 

Must be on the schedule; first week of May, affiliate links on the blogs.

Joshua Bontrager wrote a blog post about Chelsy and John's visit to Iowa. They did a photoshoot with the whole Bontrager family, and I agree with everyone above; Axton's expressions are the best! Look at him scowling away on the right! 😂

      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.
