Joy & Austin 27 - It Would Be Smart, Which Means that Joy Probably Will Not Do It.

The way she worded it, it sounds like Austin and Gideon are probably going to come to the actual wedding, but Joy is flying out early to hang out with the #bridetribe. I'll keep my eyes peeled for tons of super extra #bridetribe activities on all of their Instagram stories. Did I mention #bridetribe yet? :hello-kitty-clap:

That ALL BOY comment on the picture of Gideon is just so irritating :angry-banghead:

I know. Like no woman has ever driven a car ever. My bad, I forgot we are in (pre-2018) Saudi Arabia, and women are not allowed to drive cars. So if you sit in a car, you must be a BOY and have a PENIS! Women cannot sit in cars!! They will be catapulted out of the car, so #confirmed - Gideon is a BOY! And women never get dirty, they spend their day lying on silk sheets and rose petals being sprayed with antibacterial spray, so since Gideon likes getting dirty - #confirmed he is an ALL BOY doing all sorts of MANLY things like - gasp - driving! 

And Joy: It's not sweet of Austin to watch Gideon. He is his actual DAD. It's called parenting.

Props to Joy for traveling alone. Have Jessa or Jill ever traveled alone?  Also props to Austin for staying behind, likely to work. Have Ben or Derick ever stayed behind for those purposes, like most dads or moms in the real world need to do?

Joy looks so young in the FaceTime screenshots!

And even though it is parenting 101 for normal people I do think it is a big deal for these fundies to not have the baby with the mother and a father taking care next to his job for a few days. So like @SassyPants I do applaud them a little bit.

I can understand privately thanking your spouse for chilling with the kids while you do something on your own. I do that with my husband a lot and he, in return, is pretty great at thanking me for taking such great care of them during the day (and especially when it’s an extra long day for me because he has a work event or something after hours.) I definitely wouldn’t post anything online though, not unless it was an extreme situation. 

If I were Joy I would have just written something about how much fun Gideon and Austin were having together. Or how excited Austin was to get a lot of quality one-on-one time with Gideon. Or how excited I was to be kid and husband free for a few days.

Not surprised Joy is praising Austin for "watching" (aka parenting) Gideon for a few days by himself. This is probably one of the few (or only?) times we've seen a Duggar husband be left alone with his kid for more than a few hours. All of the other couples seem to move as a set (Benessa, JinJer, etc.) or mom takes the kids with her. 

It's depressing how such a small thing is so praise worthy, but apparently Austin is one of the few men capable of caring for his kid alone in this circle. Assuming he isn't just dropping Gideon off at the TTH for a majority of the time.

Sadly, in real life, I know quite a few very non fundie women who react like this when their husbands take care of the kids when they go out for the evening or for a weekend away. I also know quite a few dads who will say they are "babysitting" the kids.  It's not babysitting when it's your own kid!!! A male friend of mine said this to me once and I went off on him!

Am I imaging this or was there an episode where Jessa was going out and either Ben or someone else said how nice it was that he was "babysitting" and Jessa said something along the lines of "it's his kid, it's not babysitting"?

I can just imagine the comments a woman would receive if she was to state this on social media, especially a Duggar woman.

That babysitting line is one of my biggest pet peeves. 15 year old girls babysit, you are parenting.... I had a girlfriend who did not have custody of her daughter at the time and would always complain when she had to "babysit" her, she was referring to her visitation, used to make me so mad.

I do commend Austin for stepping up and parenting Gideon on his own for a few days. I knew men who wouldn't do this and they aren't fundies.

I do not keep up enough with all of these people to have realized that Joy and Carlin were best friends.  From what I glean about their personalities from reading FJ, they seem like an unlikely pair.

I hope that "watching" Gideon for a few days while Joy Anna goes to Carlin's wedding will teach him a few lessons about how hard Joy works to keep everything together.  He had better not just drop him off at TTH for Jana.

I’d imagine that someone other than Austin will be spending the bulk of the daytime hours with baby Gideon. I’m sure that Austin will have to spend sometime away d/t having to work for a living, and either the Duggars or his parents will fill in. Frankly, this is one of the most family appropriate decisions I’ve seen a Duggar make. Why did Jessa need to schlep her entire family to TX when Felicity was born? Why did Jill need to take herself and  the kids everywhere that DD went while he was being a fake ministry student?  It’s like these people are joined together at the hip, which makes them unable to unlock and make more family appropriate decisions.

Good job Austin and Joy!

Yep. She’s the only one of the bridesmaids + groomsmen who isn’t family. The only other non family is a ring bearer and Justin Duggar is an usher. (Souce: the wedding website)

They’ve been best friends since they were little girls. As they grew up their personalities shifted a bit, but I think their childhood bond remained strong. That has happened to me with my childhood friends.

Joy went with Carlin and Evan to get their license. What a -great- plan lol

So does Justin have to schlep to TN to keep Joy from walking down the aisle with someone other than Austin?

He's an Usher, not a groomsman.

I don’t think so. Joy went early because she wanted to spend some time alone with Carlin (She said it on her ig story). I think Justin and the rest of the fam  will probably get there tomorrow or on Friday, and he’ll still be right on time for rehearsal

Joy has traveled alone before. Remember when she flew to TX and Jeremy picked her up. People were all a twitter over her solitude.

Did they try and Photoshop that picture to make their waists appear smaller? I ask because both of their upper bodies look disproportionate to their lower halves.

      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.
