Carlin & Evan 9: Whatever Carlin's Trying, She Isn't Nailing It (& Why Is Layla a Naked Hippy Baby?)

And sadly, since the Bateses start homeschooling at the toddler level, I think they get the false impression that it’s easy to do so because initially the work is easy and almost rote. Unfortunately and despite the fact that some of the parents have been to “college,” I wonder how rigorous their courses were. Are any of these folks competent enough to teach advanced maths, science or foreign language?

I went to a real college but my eldest is a teenager and I have trouble helping him in Maths and Tech. I don't think parents can properly teach high school level, no matter how many degrees they have.

Totally agree with this. I never took Calculus so I certainly couldn’t teach it.

I have two elementary age girls and five degrees, including a degree in elementary education (never used). I can't teach them though. COVID and hybrid learning was rough.

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.  

Idk. I feel like fundies do this a lot. “I don’t know when we will have more kids, maybe a year.” Is the same thing to me. They say it but they don’t really mean it. They just want to obfuscate their more extreme beliefs.

I feel like they throw a lot of this on Tori. Like she might actually be the one schooling everyone.

Carlin put pictures up of the baby on instagram and she has has her in bell-bottoms. I can't understand why. It looks like a tripping hazard. I dressed my girls cute back when they were small but their clothes were functional about all else. Warm/cool enough, easy to clean, easy to play in, etc (Channeling my grandmother here). I find Carlin and Evan's parenting so odd.

Per Carlin’s Instagram stories they are in Nashville for Evan’s brother’s wedding. Evan is best man. Looks to be going to be an outdoor ceremony from the video Carlin posted of the rehearsal.

Carlin finally answered. This one actually surprised me a bit.

Erin answered this one in a live the other night. She said that they did save their first kiss. No real surprise. She did talk about how hard it was.

So just Zach & Whitney, Alyssa & John, Josie & Kelton all just admitting to being horny heathens then?

3 couples kissed before marriage.
3 did not.

That leaves us with Katie & Travis (I definitely think they've saved the kiss), Nathan & Esther (not waiting), and jury is out on Lawson & Tiffany.

Those horny heatens seem to have good marriages and the 3 husbands seem to respect their wives. I say *seem* because they are fundies after all and who knows. Anyway, their younger siblings have an example that kissing and having privacy pre-marriage helps relationships and is nothing bad. How can Gil and Kelly defend that kissing is a fault and a sin, if their children do it and their marriages are succesful?

Gil and Kelly also kissed. Absolute hypocrisy, do as I say not as I do.

Why is Layla going on the trip with Carlin to pick a weddingdress for Katie? Maybe she is still nursing but otherwise it seems weird to not keep her home with Evan and family.

Also, Layla was half naked in church again. She looks so uncomfortable.

Evan has a job and Kelly is going with Carlin so maybe childcare is an issue? I have no idea how close Evan's family lives or if they work and whatnot.

Or maybe Carlin just wanted to bring her. ?? I don't really think it's that weird.

Thank you!  She's posted pics of bell bottoms like this multiple times and I've thought the same thing. image.png.58d1dc7891592086ef7ad612241e7b58.png

Maybe she dresses Layla with less clothes because she was forced to wear so much as a child? She has lots of sisters with girls and her mom to get advice from if she truly didn’t know how to dress her daughter appropriately.

Yes and maybe she doesn't want to be like her mother or some of her sisters.

 Aside of nursing, Carlin may be very attached to Layla and prefer to travel with her. No problem with a mom travelling alone (it may be refreshing!) but I don't see the issue with traveling with Layla. Well, of course there is a pandemic, but it doesn't exist at Bates eyes, so...

Evan is working. Per Carlin’s stories on Instagram he is joining them in Florida for  a long weekend ( think he has Friday off atm).

To be fair on this topic, maybe she wanted Layla to see her cousins.

Trying to be careful with my words so as not to break rules and speculate ... Carlin’s still large bosom suggests (in my OP) she may still be partially breastfeeding. But I also agree she might just want to bring her to meet the cousins or for childcare reasons.

      Yes, it's oral thrush!  Treating it with miconazole gel 4 times a day.  Whoever decided to flavour it chocolate orange is a flipping genius!
      Also needing 1 litre of electrolyte solution per day because my steroid load is killing my levels.  Tomorrow's the last day of prednisolone, thank goodness.  Fingers crossed it's done the job, because I'm still having the occasional wobble with breathing. 
      I see the practice nurse on Monday.

      I'm not able to update the logos to the fall ones today -- there's a bug that is solved in a recent update version to fix it, but I don't have the time to do that until next week. Until then, we are still living in an endless summer friends!

      Second Covid vax is currently kicking my butt. Fever, chills, body aches, exhaustion, etc. 
      Miserable, but so so grateful to be vaccinated. Sure as hell beats actual Covid.

      Started prednisolone tablets today because the asthma inhaler isn't enough. Now I have a sore throat and feel like I have a cold coming.  Need the tablets because breathing isn't an optional body function.  Really don't need the tablets if I have an infection brewing.

      My husband commented this morning about how nice the weather is after a cold front moved in last night. Before I could stop him, he asked out loud if I thought this meant an early fall for us.
      That's like when you live up north and start talking about an early spring...
      Be careful, the weather gods are always listening.

      Grew up fundie-adjacent. My mother called herself a recovering fu**tamendalist, & she was not given to swearing. Thankfully she raised me as free of religious weirdness as she was capable. Her mother is all the regressive things -- racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, anti-semitic, ableist, fundamentalist Protestant nonsense, all of it, & longing for a golden past that never existed.
      I'm an atheist with a bit of an obsession about fundies, particularly of the Christian varieties cuz that's what I'm surrounded by. I've been reading this forum for well over a decade now & finally decided to make an account.
      Thanks for having me here.
