Eww. Gender reveal is a little too literal. Male and female swimmers racing/competing to pierce the egg, er, balloon. Seems a little much for a family friendly party. 🤢🤮

WTF? What the f*ck did I just read? I can't believe it, but yikes! This is definitely clickbait.

Evan and Travis' brother were in pink and blue swim outfits. They wrestled in the pool racing to the finish line. Evan, in pink, overtook his rival and ran triumphantly through the balloon arch. 

I've seen worse.

You know what annoys me about this? Fundie culture seems to allow men to be funny. Women aren’t allowed to be funny or goofy. Imagine if the girls had done something like that? I see this in so many fundie families. The males are allowed to be the jokesters. They are allowed to play pranks. Do physical comedy. And the women are supposed to be their adoring audience. They might be allowed a small joke here and there. But the men are the one who are supposed to get all the laughs. Of course this offends me as a female who loves to crack jokes. And I come from some very funny women. My grandma included. She was one of the funniest women I ever knew.

I can think of a couple of women followed on FJ who attempt to be funny: the unbearable Kristen Nicole Young and Tiffany. I stopped looking at Kristen’s IG a few months ago because she’s so infuriating. Tiffany isn’t exactly fundie and she’s an actress so she thinks she’s funny too. But she just does the ditzy housewife schtick which isn’t funny. I forgot about the Rodrigues girls in their skits! They attempt humor.

Katie says she’s planning a hospital birth with an epidural. I’m glad she’s open about her plan. I hate to see fundies ashamed of having an epidural. Chelsy Maxwell seemed upset she couldn’t ever seem to have a homebirth. Like she had failed. And if I knew her, I would tell her she didn’t fail at all. I hate how “natural homebirth” is pushed so hard in fundie circles. There is nothing wrong with getting an epidural if you want one.

Wasn’t Chelsy’s second kid an easy, natural home birth?

It’s totally possible. My memory isn’t what it used to be. Did she have to go to the hospital afterward? Or am I thinking of someone else?

With the first kid - wasn’t she pushing and had to get transported in that state?

Yeah her first seemed to be an ordeal. Maybe her second was much smoother and then The third was 10 weeks early.

My guess is Harlow, Halle, or my shot in the dark Hensley. Jo or joy for the middle.

I think Harlow too. Harlow James Clark. Harper and Hadley are also guesses.

A couple of posters now have guessed James as the middle name. I don’t know if using a traditional boys name for a girl would throw their families into a tizzy.

I had the same thoughts! And seemed like whoever asked the question was assuming so too, cause it was something like “what’s your birth plan? Hone birth? Midwife?”

James is pretty trendy as a girl's name now and in a instagram story awhile ago Katie said she liked it for a girl (it is Travis's middle name).

It’s much more socially acceptable to put a traditional male name on a girl than a traditional female name on a boy. Their dog Remi is a girl. I could see them liking Harper James.

If the bow is big enough then I believe any James naysayers in the family would be able to adapt.

I think Hannah is likely to be out of the running because there are so many Hannahs in fundie land. The Bateses seem to like names that aren’t super common in their fundie circles.

I'm going with Hayley Jo Clark
But maybe Hayley James Clark
 
That is my guess. 

I like to think she watched One Tree Hill ( Haley James Scott ) but I doubt it.

With my second child we were going to use James for either boy or girl but for a girl would have spelled it Jaymes. It was a boy.

I could see the Jo. Or is she close to her grandmother Jane ?

So many of the Bates kids seem to announce the name as soon as they know the sex. I've always thought that it was to make sure everyone knows it is a real human bean in there for anti-abortion purposes.

Knowing the initials makes guessing much more fun for me.

I've noticed, too, and good for them. They also don't always make a distinct link to some biblical character. Kelly Jo probably tried to bibleize all the grands' names, but she and Gil (who named the kids, didn't he? Or is that Kody Brown?) didn't do that with all their kids, either. Some, but not all. The most severe I've ever heard of parents bibling all their kids is Anna Duggar's older sister, Esther (?) who godbothers people in (Africa?)

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
