Seewalds 41: Christian Hero Ivy Jane


Recommended Posts

Georgiana

Ivy doesn't get a Christian Hero name like Spurgeon or Wilberforce, but she is sort of named after everyone's favorite environmentalist femme fatale Poison Ivy, so she's got that going for her.  Maybe she'll be her OWN Christian Hero instead?

At least she wasn't named after someone most famous for the religious groups he hated.

Jill, no! That baby does not belong to you! Back off!

I personally don’t mind the “my baby” thing. As long as it’s coming in the form of love, snuggles, kisses and hugs. The more the marrier . Aunts, grandmas, cousins are welcome to love my kids as their own.

Jill posts that on everyone’s baby pictures, I believe. I know for sure she posted something similar on one of Joy’s pictures of Gideon once. At the time I thought she felt it was “hers” because she’s Joy’s sister mom.

I've noticed that people either feel really strongly about other people calling a baby that isn't theirs "my baby" or they really don't care. There is no in between! My mom calls my kids "her babies" and it doesn't bother me. My friend hates when her mother does it (to be fair her mother has a history of boundary stomping). If Jessa's ok with it then no big deal.

I find that my feelings on the practice are directly related to my feelings on the person doing it. Someone I love? No problem. Someone I can barely stand? It’s insufferable.

My mother in law has referred to my kids as “my babies” before and it irks me, but that could also be because we have had a lot of trouble with boundaries with her in general.

As for all the “finally a girl” comments, it’s kid #3! Even in the grand babies, there are other girls. It’s not like she’s an Arndt.

I am pretty sure that if I ever married and had kids, if someone said "my baby" about my child, I would grab my chest and pretend to panic "When did we have sex? Why can't I remember it? Was it good?"

Hahahaha! It will likely be my own mother. :P I mean chances of my future MiL being crazier than my mother are...to say the least slim. And if that should happen, then yes, because if she's more of a boundary stomper than my own mother, I'm going to live on the island alone, with my baby. :)

I have referred to my grandchildren as "my babies". It's not like I want to keep them, but they are a part of me just as much as they are a part of my children. I adore the little and not-so-little ones beyond belief and take seriously the idea that I am to spoil the shit out of them then send them home. I'm not trying to overstep a boundary, I am a pretty "hands-off" grandmother, in that I do not dispense child rearing advice unless directly asked and figure it's the parents' (my kids') job to raise 'em. I did my time as a full time parent and the little people of the next generation are a joy to see and enjoy the idea that my family, which is basically just me now since my parents are dead and I am an only, goes on to yet another generation.

Just checking in every once and awhile to see when the details from the latest Duggar homebirth mishap emerge. :popcorn2:

Seriously these girls are single-handedly destroying the credibility of the homebirth movement they espouse. What are we up to now? 1 out of Jill, Jessa and joys combined 6 homebirth attempts that didn’t end with a hospital visit?

We don’t know what happened with Samuel. It’s likely it was a botched home birth, but we honestly have no clue because they’ve chosen not to discuss it. So with the proven evidence we have:

- at least 5 attempted home births

- one transfer due to postpartum bleeding/hemorrhage 

- two transfers because labor did not advance (I think this was the reason with Izzy and Gideon)

- one possible transfer for unknown reasons (Ivy)

- one with no known transfer or complications (Henry)

Has it been confirmed by a Duggarwald that Jessa and/or Ivy required institutional care post labor and delivery?

No confirmation. A few people asked on the post showing the photo with the IV shared by the Seewald family, but no one answered them. I’d assume they’re saving details for an article (if anyone is interested in reading about a third born kid - no offense Ivy!) or the show.

Here's my buzzfeed article, Top 5 Comments By Annoying-Ass Fundies In That Screenshot.

5. Carlin: True neutral, the generic congratulatory statement.

4. Joy: A nice personalized message. The three emojis are a bit much (going for a kinda Human Centipede thing?) but it's a special occasion.

3. Anna: Don't send that innocent baby the same emojis you text at Smuggar!

2. Jill: In general, I'm over Jill calling random women "mama" on Instagram. "You go mama!" "Looking great mama!" "All you mama's out there..." Enough!

1. Alyssa: The kween of compulsory gender conformity gives her blessing! Jessa has been chosen! Welcome to the sisterhood of aggressively reinforcing the personality, interests, and (limited) future that were decided for your kid the second she was born without a ween!

And it isn't just a Jill thing, I call my nieces My Paigey or My Ally  (not their real names) and my siblings and their spouses don't care, they are just happy that other people love them as much as they do.  

I personally don't see the big deal, my BFF used to call my kids her babies, and it never bothered me, I, like my siblings, thought it was sweet that someone else loves my kids. Kids can never have enough people love them IMO.

My third was a girl after two boys and that was the reaction, of course I live in normal people land where 3 babies are the maximum for most people, not fundie world where that is just the first course. But of the 80 or so comments when my daughter was born, more than half mentioned being happy that I got my girl at last.

I agree that this is also in mainstream culture. I have boys and people have learned very quickly I will NEVER be “trying for a girl.” I think it’s incredibly weird that people seem to be obsessed with having at least one child of each sex in every family. I never had a strong urge to have a family with one boy and one girl (which is called the million dollar family by the way. Vomit).

      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.
