Sister Wives Family Welcome 17th/Baby Boy Born (MERGED)

Recommended Posts

gustava

When you spend all your time together f*cking, you don't know when you got pregnant.

And THEY ARE NOT MARRIED, except in the eyes of the Mormon god. It really irks me that People mag (and everyone else) says they're married. THEY ARE NOT MARRIED.

I just started watching this show and I'm addicted. And as much as I want to hate them, they have all sort of grown on me (except Robyn)

Ditto. I really like all of the wives except Robin. Something about her just rubs me the wrong way. All of the other ladies seem to actually be friends and were enjoying their lifestyle until Robin cam along.

Yes! What bugs me about her is they were all a family for YEARS before she came along and she just waltzes in and claims the kids as hers and acts like she's just as big a part of it as they all are. Also, her correcting her children to call Cody "daddy" when they just MET him and already have a dad was just fricking creepy.

I know. Everyone seemed happy in which ever role they had taken either in or out of the house, but Robin's need to be the most special has kinda destroyed that. I feel bad for her kids. The son, if I remember correctly, is autistic and they don't seem to be doing anything to help him adjust or providing any services he may need.

I wonder why he agreed to take her on when his family was doing fine without her. I wonder if it was for the show.

Kody is an attention whore and this was the perfect way for him to be noticed; being on television. He chose to be on cameras and then wants sympathy points from viewers when he talks about the pressure to move to Nevada and the criminal investigation.

Robyn annoys me cos she thinks she can decide what's best for her sister wives' children.

Anyways, congratulations to Robyn and her baby.

The thing about this family that disturbs me most is that they are five able-bodied adults and none of them have a job but live in 4 different houses. Is only TLC money funding their life right now?

3 is enough

Wow. The baby weighed 9 lbs, 10.5 oz. That's a BIG baby.

I'm thinking Kody may have to wait a bit longer than the usual 6 weeks to get busy with Robyn again.

LOL, this is way TMI but my second baby was 9lbs 4oz and we "resumed" 2 weeks after the birth. It's not really a matter of how big the baby is, usually.

According to Radaronline (yeah I have the occasional celeb fetish), Robyn & Kody had their baby this morning. From the looks of the commercials & shows lately, all may not be well in polyg paradise....

The commercial going around now for next week's episode has somthing going on with the kids where Meri is hollering at them, then asks "can I get some back up from the other moms here?", Then they show the interview where Robyn (sorta crying, of course) saying that if her kids don't feel they are fitting in they can choose not to live with her. It's probably a problem with assimilation, Robyns kids are used to being with her, and the regular kids are used to being in their family, so it's typical blending family problems, maybe they're not handling them so well.

Aside from that, the last couple of epi's have had some lingering jealousy ect. between the wives, and Robyn seems to think she's the special snowflake in the bunch and she's happy as pie, where the other 3 are all questioning their respective places within the relationship at one time or another.

I would try TLC's website to see if they show past epidodes, or Utube maybe??

ETA to fix a riffle

I think Kody really fucked things up when he took on Robyn. First, she is a lot younger, slimmer and cuter than the other wives, which is guaranteed to be a problem. Second, she has major baggage--financial and mental, I am not even talking about her kids. Third, they were stretched already as far as they could go.

Seriously, if you can make polygamy work, good for you. But don't keeping pushing it. He has seriously fucked up his household and created drama just because he wanted a cute trophy wife.

I wonder why he agreed to take her on when his family was doing fine without her. I wonder if it was for the show.

In one of the first shows, they shared a bit about how Kody started his relationship with Robin. Merri stated that it was her idea - that she is the one who approached Robin first to sort of feel her out and see if she might be interested in Kody. Merri played matchmaker. Kody stated that initially, he was reluctant, as Robin's divorced status had some sort of "ick factor" (his words) for him.

It frustrates me that the show's producers have thus far carefully avoided any real explanation of how the Brown family's polygamist lifestyle is absolutely driven by their religion's teachings about God, heaven, and the afterlife. I think the TLC powers know that if they were to disclose to the world that polygamy for the Browns is, bottom line, all about fertility, it would make them seem a whole lot less benign.

Their religion teaches that one of the most important tasks we have in this life on earth is to provide as many human bodies as possible for God to fill with the spirits of his "spirit babies," which the (polygamist) Mormon God is forever producing with all of his spirit wives. As "head wife" (so to speak), Merri gets heavenly credit now and in the afterlife for all of Kody's children. Especially because of her own struggles with infertility (remember, Merri's only child was born after Janelle was brought on board and had given birth to Kody's oldest child), Merri was under the gun. But through getting the polygamist ball rolling by introducing her ex-sister-in-law Janelle into the mix, Merri earns heavenly reward. AND, the children born to the other wives are (spiritually speaking) considered Merri's, because they wouldn't be around if she hadn't agreed to polygamy.

It makes sense that Merri would want to continue earning brownie points with God, and Christine's fertile years are probably waning. So, she cast about for a new and younger woman to bring in and found Robin.

You can see in Merri's interactions with the older kids especially that she takes a level of personal pride in them that the other moms don't show toward each other's children. And of course this makes sense when you consider that from Merri's religious perspective, those kids are on this earth because of her willingness to lay down her "selfish desires" for a husband who was hers alone.

I just wish the producers of the show would acknowledge the religious motivations behind the Browns' version of polygamy. It would help to make the whole weird dynamic make sense.

I'm not really crazy for Robyn but I like the other wives, especially Janelle. That said, I can't believe that Kody got one woman to do the horizontal nasty dance, much less four What a tool.

I used to think the same but now that I've finished the first 2 seasons I think, while he's a dufus, he seems really genuine and kind of sweet.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
