Carlin, your baby is not a decorative item. Nor a build-a-bear.  Stop that. 

I am as lazy as all get out  no homeschooling for me 

What the holy hell is wrong with this woman? Days after someone she grew up with is arrested and jailed for CP, she is still posting naked baby pictures. Now I see a chubby, healthy, happy baby and it

Kudos to Carlin for not being pregnant yet.  I keep thinking there has to be an announcement coming.

She did recently ride a rollercoaster so I guess she is not pregnant now (that she knows of).

Maybe, just maybe, the realities of having a rough year and introduction to parenthood has made these 2 make different choices? Of all the couples we talk about, these 2 present as so immature and clueless when it comes to parenting. It’s unfortunate that their child is the one with some extra medical needs.

In the new Instastory from yesterday Carlin and Evan do a picnic with Layla and a pizza. There were the commercial breaks where Carlin was selling skin care products. However, my question is why was the blanket half up in the air and half on the ground. Was this a photo shoot?

My friend did a picnic recently with her toddler and homemade pizza her husband made. In fact, her son suggested the picnic. She said he ran up and stomped on the food as they were laying it out, screaming, "no pizza!" and ran off. They were able to salvage some for themselves, but got a good laugh out of it.

Carlin is doing a Q + A now. Couldn’t stand that her sisters were getting all of the attention for revealing that they kissed before marriage. I bet she’ll answer the kiss question.

They both have done Instagram Q&A things over the past week or so. It was one of the questions asked (apparently the most popular one asked to Alyssa).

Lawson and Tiffany  are on CarVans YouTube this week.  Kelly gifted them a trip to Asheville for Carlin’s birthday.  
 

Carlin ironed a hole in her dress.  
 

Lawson says that he and Tiffany have been “talking” about 7 months ( then jokes that the Biltmore is thei starter house)

Carlin in her q and a said that the plan at the moment is to homeschool but that may change as they still have a few years to decide... phhhmm we will see.

Hopefully Carlin will opt to send Layla to school, maybe not immediately but at some point. I think that Carlin would enjoy expanding her social circle with school moms and play dates for Layla. Here’s hoping!

The problem.with Bates is that they homeschool with videos and it's too easy. Kids watch TV while mamas clean or take a shower or whatever. They don't invest effort in homeschooling (Erin said she does, but with a toddler and a baby and a business, I doubt it). In addition, Those moms are not going to face how bad their schooling is, because all the families in their circle use the same videos or worse. Maybe if Carlin gets overwhelmed, she will send Layla to a school, but if Layla is "easy" and they don't have a ton of kids, Carlin won't feel she needs a school. 

I doubt any Bates will send kids to school by now. I had hope with Zach, but after leaving the police job I think he will never send kids to school. He's too close to his parents and Erin, Whit, Carlin and Tori are besties. None of them can break such a big rule.

The beauty was that she said they have a few years to "decided."

I'm not against responsible homeschooling, and for that reason I'm really hoping that Carlin doesn't homeschool.

The fact that she didn't immediately say "we're homeschooling for sure!" gives me a small bit of hope.

I am so behind on the Bates news. When and why did Zach leave his police offer job?

He didn't really disclose why he left other than saying he wanted to spend more time with his family. This appears to have happened last fall, at least that's when they showed him cutting down a tree on the show. It could have been sooner, but that's when UP was filming. They took a big break while covid ran rampant through the Bates family late summer/early fall.

He left it months ago (not sure if they said the exact time). He is working with Gil in the tree business. Apparently the police schedule was too hard for his family life.

Wasn’t it the Bates who went to a real school for a day as a gimmick on the show? Met Kelly Jo’s old chemistry teacher or something? I can imagine that for some of them, seeing what they were missing out on and seeing their mom have a positive relationship and experience with a teacher, may have made them feel resentful and deprived, even to a small extent. I can picture Carlin experiencing that and seeing tv shows and movies about kids going to school and wanting to fit in and be more mainstream by sending her kids to school.

She may dream of schools and cheerleaders as seen in the movies, but she works with Erin and Whitney, who are 100% homeschoolers and I doubt Carlin has non-homeschooling friends. That's why sending Layla to school wouldn't make her "fit", but the opposite. I think Carlin is very insecure and she will never do something that her family doesn't approve.

My only hope is that Josie and Kelton send their kids to the private school Balkas attended. But I doubt they will, because I think Josie's friends are also homeschoolers.

They visited Kelly Jo's hometown of Spartanburg SC and Kelly Jo brought everyone over to her public high school alma mater.  The kids sat at the classroom desks at one point and pretty much extolled the virtues of homeschooling and how lucky they were to be educated by their mom in such a small intimate setting as opposed to the horrors of sitting in a desk in a large, impersonal classroom.   It was like watching a PSA promoting homeschooling.  If any of them had any secret burning desire to attend regular school, they didn't show it in that episode.   

Like others, I had hope for Zach and Whitney's kids attending a "real" school but that's not going to happen any time soon if at all.  Whitney's desire to fit in with her sisters-in-law is too strong.  I still remember Whitney on one episode of BUB extolling the virtues of swimming in a skirt and I still don't know who she was trying to convince more-the TV audience or herself.

      A happy summer solstice to all northern hemisphere FJers! And a happy winter solstice to all southern hemisphere FJers! (I know it's already Monday is Australia, so I'm late for most of you.)

      ETA--Oh! I just checked, and the winter solstice is at 1:31 PM on Monday, June 21 in Eastern Australia Time. So, for once the time zones worked in my favor. I'm not late!

      I'm so angry at the Bishops right now. Shit like this is why I left the Catholic church. They play politics so blatantly.  I hope this convinces more people to leave.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.

      Dear FJ ladies of a certain age.  Did you know that joint pain can appear/increase with perimenopause and menopause?  No?  Me neither till my rheumatologist told me yesterday.  It's all down to the fall in (o)estrogen. 
      Looking online, it'll either settle down as your hormones adapt to their new levels OR you're stuck with it!  I don't fancy needing NSAIDs for the rest of my life.

      This evening a biker dude went out of his way to follow my car into a retail store's parking lot to lecture me on - get this - braking when the light turned yellow. I had been going the speed limit and it was by no means the shortest stop I've ever made. He condescendingly told me that next time I should hit the gas because people like him could "go splat" into my car. Really dude?!? If you're going to drive any vehicle, especially a motorcycle, actually learn to drive it and don't effing tailgate me when I'm going the speed limit. And if you did rear-end me, guess whose fault it would be? Certainly not the person who was obeying the law.
      Also, I hate living in a society where I have to say this, but I am soooo thankful my male coworker was with me. The biker stopped his bike right behind my car when I parked and wouldn't move it until his lecture was over. If I had been alone I would have been terrified.
