Seewalds 40 - Threewald is Here! Ivy Jane

Recommended Posts

Actually he did wash her feet too so even if I still find it uncomfortable, strange ecc I'm at least happy that it was reciprocated  and I do understand the under meaning of the gesture.

I am beyond shocked at this!! Can anyone explain why? Would he have washed her feet in return? 

Just NO!  Why, why, why?  😥

I’ve seen this at very non-fundie weddings too in the south. 

It’s humbling and an attempt to be Christ-like.  Has 0% to do with submission, gender roles etc. He definitely did it back, too. 

Not leg-humping, I just see this all the time at my friends weddings.

Looks like according to Instagram the Seewalds did not go to the wedding as the boys were watering Jana's garden. I don't blame her ...I wouldn't want to go that far from home so close to my due date

omg do you think someone could be lurking here and that's why they deleted it? or do we it was because of people's comment on the actual Instagram pic?

I think it was comments on the actual pic. But there have been lurkers here before.

Why would they change their Instagram based on something we said here? Either they stand by their beliefs or they don’t, and prettying up their social media isn’t going to make us fine with Threewald being born into a cult.

This tumblr has the photos. Both washed each others feet and it the photos were originally on a family members public facebook page. I don't think they were ever on a Seewalds insta unless I missed that somewhere.

The Seewald parents' Instagram originally had a picture of Jessica washing her husbands' feet, but not a picture of him washing her feet. Even though I still find it icky and would never do that at a wedding (and would seriously side-eye the couple if I ever have to witness it at a wedding I attend), I'm glad it was at least a mutual thing and not a gesture of the woman's submission to her husband.

I'm relatively sure it was just in the Seewalds' stories, which expire after 24 hours. No deleting required.

Jessica Seewald comes across as the smug, conservative when it suits her type - like that curly haired girl from Kent State that fetishizes guns.  I’m surprised she got away with wearing a dress that reveling.  I’m not a modest dresser,  but it just seemed over the top. I wonder what Jessa and family think of it.

Of course I realize that. I was just simply speculating on their reasoning of deleting that picture. In retrospect I don’t think that my comment was very productive or contributory to the discussion, but I still wonder how many fans read here since it is a public forum! 😂

Jessica’s wedding was May 18th and the photo of the boys was from yesterday, a week later. Additionally, Jessa was a Bridesmaid. You could see her in the background of the photo where Jessica was washing her husband's feet during the ceremony.

I think MamaMia meant Jessa didn't go to Carlin's wedding, at least that's what I thought she meant. So many weddings, so many babies, so many pregnancies... it's hard to keep up with only pronouns.

Oh can someone please post it again? I was so grossed out by the feet thing that’s all I saw. Wasn’t it one of those 24 hour Instagram things. 

Also someone needs to make that pic their new avatar. It might make people heave more than my one does. 

Edit. Saw the reddit link to pics. Didn’t look all that hard again. Got sick 🤢 had to close the pic. 

Still stand by the avatar. Wish it was a better pic of jessa blessa she was not keen on it from what I can see

Not really. We know some of the others watch television too. It seems to be less of a thing for this type of Fundie to watch certain types of shows and movies now then it used to be.

I know I'm late to the "starting school ages" discussion, but wanted to add to it. Our first is due Sept 4. With my sister's history, there's a 2/3 chance he'll be induced a month early due to BP issues (I've already had some slight elevation), and my sister and I were both born early, 20 and 10 days respectively. Even if this munchkin comes on time, I already know there's a 99% chance we will wait until he is nearly 6 before starting. He'd be right around the cutoff point and a concern for me will be size - I'm about average (mom and sister both shorter than average by 2-5 inches) and my husband is not quite as tall as me. He and his brother were adopted/not biologically related and he is three years older than his brother, but in a lot of photos from his childhood he looks younger than his brother. So this kiddo is very likely to be small compared to his peers. Never bothered my husband, but it can lead to a lot more social issues and teasing/bullying.  

But more important than the size though is the consideration of middle school. My mom was a 6th grade teacher and has frequent contact with other retired and currently active teachers, including the one who replaced her and we had a long discussion about this when we saw her last year (because my nephew is turning 5 this summer). That teacher kept her twins born in April back a year because she sees the shift that happens around 6th grade - it's when the higher pressure stakes for standardized testing really picks up and younger kids that have thrived before can start to fall behind.

Because of the (ridiculous IMO) testing standards in the US that are requiring kids to deal with things that are beyond their developmental levels (requiring Algebra topics in 6th grade is insane), the younger ones in general can struggle quite a bit more once they get to Middle School even if they were fine previously. I was young for my grade and thrived, but I also know that a lot has changed since I was in school. A LOT. So I'm going to consider the judgement of current teachers above my own experience for this. If he was ready for Kindergarten, but then fell really behind five years later, the social implications for being held back are huge at that age. Or even just not keeping up with friends that he used to be on the same level as previously. My perspective is that is better to have them over-ready in the beginning but at the right level later - there is no doubt that we will find ways for kiddo to be challenged in the younger years outside of school, so he'll be ok. And like a few other said, they have so little time any more to be kids, I'm ok with an extra year before everything starts moving forward.

I can't believe I am going to go down the rabbit hole and say I think it has to do with partnering in life. 

I also can't believe that I think it's sweet because it shows each other what you are willing to do in a partner. 

I am so sorry for thinking these sweet things but it's a stressful time and they pulled me into the rabbit hole of Ben's bicep all over again

I don't think they care at all whether we approve of them. I can't see them scrambling to substitute a picture that we might like.

Threewald will soon be here! Where has the time gone? 

Ick! Foot washing. Jessica has always been smug. I find it very gross, but it's not about me. I've never seen feet washing at a wedding, not sure how it would go over! But to each their own, I guess.

I didn't know anything about her until Jessa had Spurgeon and she posted that she was an aunt with blue writing on Instagram, that is bad announcing in normal circumstances but Jessa was In hospital bleeding and kept the gender private so that her and Ben could announce it.  That made me dislike her before I even knew anymore about her

The feet washing thing to me is just strange and I've never heard of anyone doing it where I live.

I find the feet washing highly disturbing. Is it about submission? Very unhealthy specially in a wedding. What kind of bride is ok with that? It sounds very Pearl.

Is she the policewoman? I find frightening that people like her have jobs where they can easily abuse others. I'm not saying she does!!! But if someone holds strange beliefs about power and inequality, their place should NOT be in a police station.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
