We lost #3 of the 4 boys last July.  He was four years old.  He had a cardiac issue that we were unaware of, but even if it had been found during his life it would probably have postponed the outcome but not prevented it.  One of the first things I thought of in the aftermath, and that I come back to often, is this bit from the book where Anne's firstborn dies:

"Anne found that she could go on living; the day came when she even smiled again over one of Miss Cornelia's speeches.  But there was something in the smile that had never been in Anne's smile before and would never be absent from it again."

Coming back to the thread topic... I am Abbie's age and had my youngest right around the same time as her twin boys and just about everything she posts is annoying.  I can't even.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I can't even imagine (but will cuddle my lil bub extra tight). Wishing you a strong community to love and support you.

Ezra is going away for 2 weeks, presumably to some kind of camp.  Braggie said "I'm drowning my sorrows in mint chocolate chip".

The only reason she's sad is because her #1 toddler wrangler is not going to be around.

Exactly. That child does more parenting than Braggie’s husband.

I suspect it won't matter to him how strict the camp rules are.. He'll have 2 glorious weeks of freedom from being BroDad. 

Anyone think Shaun will pick up the slack or will it all fall on Simon?

Survey of moi says ............ Simon.

Edited to add -- Maybe this will get Ezra thinking that if he moves away at 18 he'd never have to be BroDad again.

The Highland Park, Illinois Fourth of July parade shooting took place right between two places (Anthropologie and restaurant) within blocks of each other that Abbie visited on her trip to Chicago last month. I’m wondering if she’ll mention it.

I'm not entirely convinced that Shaun even know how to parent his children.

Yep, methinks the only reason they have so many is because he’ll keep appeasing her as long as he is allowed to be Fun Dad.

Tell me you have more kids than you can parent without actually saying it.

"Apparently, my middle boys got the memo that we were nearing the celebration of our country’s more rebellious/combative tendencies and decided to celebrate with shiners (Shiloh got his from Honor; Honor,
whose is hidden by his bangs, got his from Theo, and Theo somehow got off scot-free)."

      The Berries were born in Highland Park Hospital. We went to the 4th of July Parade every year until we moved here. I’ve been crying all day. This is horrible. We are just waiting for a list of victims to make sure none of our old friends from those days were hurt. I HATE this.

      Already after the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, I was already NOT feeling 4th of July and felt it was ridiculous to celebrate. Now a mass shooting at a parade in a town nearby. Multiple fatalities. Everyone has to shelter in place in their homes, can't go outside, because shooter is still on the loose. Nearby towns canceling their celebrations due to public safety concerns. Wow guys, how free we are! What a great country we live in! Aren't you grateful for all this freedom?! /s
      The usa, what a fucking joke.

      Had some bad news out of Dubuque today - 3 teenagers were killed in a one car accident where the driver had been speeding and flipped his car. 
      I feel so sorry for their families and friends now.  It also brought back painful memories for me and some of my classmates because my junior year of high school three of our classmates were killed in an accident as well.   One I had known since elementary school.

      Hey FJers, long time. Sorry I've not posted in like forever - life just sometimes gets in the way.
      During the lockdown, I did various temporary jobs (shelf stacking in Wilko, and also working from home doing call centre type stuff, including Test and Trace) but hope to go busking soon. I need to practise my set as my guitar/singing has got a bit rusty!
      Since I last posted, I have become a cat mum! My housemate with Lilith had to move abroad and wasn't able to take her with him, so I inherited her. She'll be two in August but still looks and acts like a kitten. I love her more than life itself.

      Sooo. I turned down the new job, realized I've been scammed.
       
      Also today I'm 26 and drunk right now. My amazing husband took me to Chicago to a rooftop bar and I'm so glad my mom is here to babysit and I pumped enough to last her a few days

      With the fall of Roe v. Wade, now would be a great time to start taxing religious institutions so we can increase funding for women's and children's health and education services.  Males 18-25 still have to register for Selective Service; how about adding a DNA database to that requirement to help track down impregnators and hold them responsible for their part?
