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


Recommended Posts

SassyPants

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?

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

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.

Hyprocisy seems to be the hallmark of fundies.

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.

      I survived ... Ish. I'm all moved again, another 1500 miles from where the cats and I were living before. I'm in the new apartment, and kitties are adjusting well. I've only cried 6 times since Saturday! #progress.
      By the way, sorry about the summer logo swap taking its sweet time. Real life was a little too much and it got forgotten.

      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.

      One of my siblings has a work related thing coming up where they get to visit a fundie place. Has promised a detailed rundown of the encounter for me and another sibling via video chat. Not that I am jealous or anything….

      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.
