They seem to have all but given up the pretence of social distancing. Jill had Jessa’s kids over and her latest post is about meeting up with her in-laws for a picnic while Derick does his exams; Jessa was over at her parents doing the ATI livestream, Joy never bothered pretending. There’s only Anna still trying to have us believe she is but we know she isn’t. Clearly if their state doesn’t prohibit it they are free to do as they please- why can they never just be honest?

Because these are the Duggars we're talking about. But actually, I think they should either be 1) honest about everything, or 2) be conservative and follow guidelines and set a good example for their followers. I'd really prefer the latter because it is the most Christian thing to do. The Duggars really don't have any rhyme or reason.

Because living authentically is a forgein concept to them.  They do as they please and manage their public image.

Badly...but that's always their game plan.

Why are the Duggar’s being shady?

Do the Duggar threads use “TADWTA” (these are Duggars we’re talking about)?  If not, I highly recommend it.  So much saved time.  TIJWTA is SEVERLY useful in the JRod threads.

I think it was Jill who posted a picture of Israel and Spurgeon with a tagline like "first time together again #quarantine". Maybe I was reading it wrong, and she meant her period of self-isolation was over now, but otherwise she'd have to be pretty stupid to post a story about meeting people while at the same time pretending to practice social distancing.

With Jill, I actually didn’t see the kids all over Cathy. I got the impression (maybe more hoped) that while being physically present, they were maintaining some social distance. It would be hard as a grandma not to touch and for the kids. But I hope that’s what they did.

Since they don’t have a stay-at-home order they’re doing pretty much the same as most people who don’t have them or have had them recently lifted. I noticed that it was my friends who proclaimed the loudest about staying home who suddenly decided to run to Lowe’s so they could plant flowers, or have outside events with neighbors. In my area we’re slowly opening up and everyone seems to be making a mad rush out of town to the beach.

That's not the first time they've been to Cathy's.  They went with Derrick and spent all their time on a dock fishing with the boys and then to a boat ramp to wade for a bit.  At that time there didn't look like others were around aside from a neighbor of Cathy's who gave them a ride on an ATV type vehicle down a steep hill to the dock (person wasn't seen).  The photo of one of the boys and Cathy posted most recently showed a bit of distance between the kid and Cathy.

They should set a good example for their followers, but probably a lot of their genuine followers believe the COVID is a deep state conspiracy to hurt Trump/a sign from God/not that big of a deal/[insert stupid conspiracy theory here].

I think the Duggars are just trying to play both sides like they always do. They're not going to come out and say COVID is a hoax because they know that would cause bad press, but they're also not going to actually listen to the CDC guidelines or encourage their followers to do the same. They're just going to continue to do whatever the hell they want, smugly but somewhat quietly.

I saw the pics the older girls put up of mechelle for Mother’s Day. Of course she looks involved (otherwise why take the pic). But she just seems a bit different. (Yes I could be casting my own wishful thinking). But I think she may have had a chance to be a better mother if she had of stopped at Jinger.


She had a newborn addiction and a guilt trip over a miscarriage. It pushed her to have more kids than she should have (though I have to admit writing that makes me feel icky). Only because the kids are actually in existence and I feel like I’m writing that they don’t deserve to be alive, even theoretically, it makes me feel a bit bad.. lol omg I’m becoming quiverful.  
She could have had a really nice life with a gaggle of close in age girls and the two boys could have had each other also. Especially now they are adults. 
when does everyone else think they should have stopped?

Before Josh.  IMO people who see children as extensions of themselves rather than as people in their own right shouldn't have any.

I definitley think the at the laundry room breakdown, if not sooner. So 7, I guess. I have issues with even non-fundies having double digit plus children. No matter how generally stable and loving, i think stopping at 8 is always preferable to going for 12 or  more.

So except for Joy giving birth in August at the moment, there nothing else going on with the Duggar, what do you think will be the next to announce and what?

Kendra pregnancy? Or a boy courtship?

I think it still soon for Jessa but who knows? Anna has just given birth a few months ago, Jill I think is done for now (at least till Derick end school) Abbie had given birth on January, Jinger is a kinda wild card, but she just said she is drinking coffee but, so I don't think she is pregnant right now, Lauren maybe a third pregnancy, but don't know how soon after Bella (I mean with the miscarriage and all the Asa stuff it could be early but I have no clue). Maybe a boy courtship then? 

What do you think?

I think a Jed courtship in time for the election and either Kendra or Jinger to announce a pregnancy- possibly both.

At the very least JB & M should have stopped after Josiah, that gave them 8 kids, that is a big family, even by fundy standards. All the fundylight folks I know only had 2 or 3 kids, a few 4 and even fewer 5 or 6. I don't know anyone personally who has more than 6 kids, wait I do know one woman but she's a heathen atheist and has 4 bio kids and 4 adopted kids. 

When was her laundry room breakdown, was it after Jed & Jer? I can see having 4 kids in less than 2.5 years (Josiah, Joy Anna & Jed & Jer were all born with in  27 months of each other) would send anyone over the edge let alone having 4 kids that quickly with 7 older siblings

I think Jinger is pregnant, not saying why I think that, I'm not in the mood to get my ass handed to me so I'm keeping mah mouth shut! 😷 I drank minimal amounts of caffeine with #2 I needed it with a toddler underfoot as well, I think a lot of women relax with 2nd and subsequent pregnancies, if thye've not experienced any losses, or that has always been the case with my friends and myself who've been lucky enough to get pregnant & give birth to healthy babies without much trouble.  

I'm not sure if Kendra will get pregnant as quickly this time she's got 2 little ones so she could be pretty tired, but who knows, she and Joe are super young, super fundy and super dumb so that is a crap shoot.

The 7 kid laundry room breakdown would have been Josh, JD, Jana, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joe.

I’m not going by physical appearance and I think she’s pregnant too— after she used that pregnancy hashtag, I kinda got that feeling.

I'm using self isolation to hop and skip my way through the last season of counting on. 

And oh my goodness Jed is irritating, I can't for the life of me figure out what makes him qualified for politics. 

At the very least Jim Bob had worked and earned some of his own money before he ran. Heck at the very least he had purchased his own toilet paper.

I also think she is preggers. There was a photo last month (no not of her belly) it was a family one. Felicity was standing up and they were in the background. It just looked like (to me) it was part of some (holding up)I’m gunna be a  big sister sign, photo shoot. But as the time goes on and that hasn’t come to light, I’m left wondering. Reminds me of when  everyone guessed Kendra was pregnant based on the new professional photos she had up.

It could be they are waiting for lockdown to end to maximise on magazine sales or endorsements. At one time Jinger & Jeremy seemed to have a live in photographer - there were so many shots of them!

He's not.  But he's white, has a penis, and has an (R) after his name, so he'll get a lot of votes based on that.  Hopefully not enough to win.

I agree. While her breakdown happened several kids down the road. She wasn't any better at being a parent to Josh then she's been to any of her other kids. She never should have become a parent. And neither should have JB. Their both too selfish and too narcissistic to be parents. Having too many kids wasn't their problem having kids at all was the problem.
