Alyssa & John 9: It’s All About Dressing Up and Looking Perfect on Instagram

Everything about Alyssa's house is about instagrammability and aesthetics, not about functionality and comfort. And certainly not her kids' comfort. 

Sad life. 

Her dining room looks like a bachelor pad for a rich dude who is too young to have developed any sort of taste.

I think the flooring is too busy also, but I see it as a more natural brown wood color than gray. I’m always ten years behind the trends so I love gray floors.

I think her dining room and flooring are fine. Not my style, but it’s her home. Unless she blocks the room off, how will she keep the girls out? White for a home with 4 kids? She’s either unrealistic, a Pearl discipline follower or nuts- could be all 3

She doesn't plan to keep them out. She says they eat dinner there every night.

Alyssa has been shown to be quite snarky and she herself admits to being impatient as a mom. She also presents as a rather disinterested mother. I bet she’s more often than not, pretty mean to those kids behind closed doors. I understand. I like order and lack patience too. It’s part of why I waited to have kids, always worked PT and limited my offspring to a manageable 2. Common sense-

Shes lying, or at best exaggerating. She has had numerous posts showing they eat dinner by the pool every night at a kids table. Based on previous videos and posts, I think she makes them an easy early dinner (we've seen boxed mac n cheese and canned veggies, pizza) then she and John have dinner alone.

In her comments, she says they eat breakfast and lunch at the kitchen counter, sometimes pool, and several times she told people shes a neat freak and thus constantly cleaning.

But also, those kids have been trained to be very obedient. Exhibit A: a gigantic glass jar of cookies at toddler height for decorative purposes in the dining room? My 4 year old would have DEMOLISHED that.

"Unrealistic, a Pearl discipline follower or nuts" sounds like a great title for the next thread.

Now that she seems to have learned how to spell "dining", I have a new favorite Alyssa-ism!

She has a whole new set of stories of her, Carlin, KJ, 6 kids, and Katie shopping at Target for Katie's registry. All UNMASKED and likely unvaxxed. So this is why I am keeping mine on indoors, because of these assholes.

Has there been even one fundie who got vaxxed, that we know of? Even one?

I'm not worried about "counsins". It looks like a typing mistake.

She certainly likes using an extra “n”. At least it doesn’t say counsin’s.

I'm sure they are unvaxxed, but Kelly has health issues pretty often. She definitely should get the vax. Even if it makes Lawson angry.

Admittedly, this is kinda weird but the photo of Kelly, Alyssa (b. 1994), Carlin (b. 1998) and Katie (b. 2000) almost gives an illusion that they're a regular sized family and Katie is the baby. I looked up their ages and combined with when Kelly and Gil got married (1987), figured we'd throw Zach (b. 1988) into the mix, and Lawson (b. 1992) for spacing purposes and wow, that made them seem more normal. ? I think Mama Jane would've been pretty happy with that size group.

Carlin also spelled 'neice'

I am giving them the benefit of the doubt as long as they make the mistake once. Then their only mistake is not re-reading before posting. If they make the same mistake multiple times (like dinner), it's really a SOTDR issue.

They all should, adults and kids alike.

Alyssa posted a story about how she and the girls went to the zoo with Kelly and various sisters/cousins. Allie, Lexi and Zoey were dressed in shorts and shirts, just like any other child in summer. 

I wonder how Kelly feels seeing her granddaughters dressed in "secular" clothing, identical to clothes worn by mainstream American children. I mean, it's great she's not shunning them for having different values. But how does she feel to see these little girls walking along with their little legs and arms in plain view, something Kelly would have forbidden Alyssa to do? In fact, Kelly still forbids Callie from doing so. 

Does she notice that nothing bad is happening? Does she noticed that the girls are better able to climb the short fences at the zoo (there is a picture of them doing this)? That they are likely cooler and more comfortable than if they'd have been in long, heavy dresses? Does she notice that there is nothing "tempting" about these tiny girls and that, most likely, no one even notices them? Does she secretly wish Allie, Zoey and Lexi were wearing long frumpers with big white collars, and feel embarrassed at the clothes they are wearing?

I wonder if she regrets the stupid clothes she forced her girls to wear. I wonder if she and Alyssa discuss it at all.

I noticed in the picture of Alyssa and Erin yesterday, the stark difference in dress (also that Alyssa chose an unflattering pic of Erin).

I think Kelly Jo is okay with it since she knows that overall Alyssa is still 100% fundie - she is spitting out babies, homeschooling, reinforcing strict gender roles, going to church, supporting conservative politicians, etc. The clothes mean nothing.

      You know what is really not fun? Stopping at Canadian Tire on my way home from a pretty stupid day at work because I need to pick up something to dry out the inside of my trunk after water got inside it (long story) and managing to lock my keys in the car. Now I get to wait for BCAA to come unlock it for me and my back is  aching. Nowhere to sit because it keeps raining off and on. Don't want to go back in the store because Covid. And once I get home I get to hear the full story about why the guy couldn't make it to our house today to fix the sump pump that seems to be broken. Which is obviously not what you want if you've seen the rain forecast. I should have stayed in bed today. 😕

      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.
