This is going to be a eight episodes season. There is literally nothing left to film. I also thought Josh and Anne were not going to be filmed, low and behold they're actually providing material.

I think we've all written what we would like to see but for some reason nothing changes. Our only hope of something interesting happening is Jessa's engagement.

Oh my, a mother travels in the city metro with her three children. Fascinating. The show should come with a health warning: "Watching this will substantially contribute to your brain cells dying faster than they should"
PS. I never watch it anyway, I watch the family because they are so snark worthy.

I think I'm one of the few left that actually enjoys watching the Duggars. The truth is, TLC is going to continue the show as long as they are getting decent ratings. That being said, I agree that a courtship would make things interesting

Special Ed Lady said...

Took the Metro many times, visiting D.C. Not an uncommon sight at all. She has that stroller that holds three kids, plus the crew is not going to let someone get away. It is very easy to figure out.

I'm surprised some of the girls hasn't donated (or expressed interest in doing so) their hair to Wigs 4 Kids or something. That would be a cool thing :)

hello said...

I don't think they would ever consider donating their hair. The girls were asked previously why they all had long hair and they said it was because that's how their dad liked it. They would have to get Jim Bob's permission to do something like that. Whatever Jim Bob says goes as we saw in the episode where he made the girls donate blood when it was obvious that they didn't want to.

I thought they were following the Bible verse that says women shouldn't cut their hair.

Dar said...

What a miserable life, having everything dictated by a mediocre man with control issues, even down to the length of ones hair. No wonder he has such a big ego.

I hope young Jessa is not engaged. I think it would be quite easy for a young man to fool Jim Bob. It is the daughter who would be stuck with and controlled by his choices.

You want a girl to do that? WTH

Two things about Anna wandering around Washington DC. One: Why walk around a strange place with three little children in tow and wear flip-flops. Please wear decent shoes!! Two: Poor Michael sitting way out in front in that stroller, there's nothing and no one familiar, he can't see mom or his sister, he should be riding backwards so he can see them. No wonder he cries a lot. You'd think the people who design those things would consider the toddler's perspective.

Other than that, nice to see Anna getting the hang of things in the city.

Michelle has gone off the deep end. You're 47 years old, lady. No more birthin' for you. As for adoption, the only places that would give them a kid are extreme fundamentalist organizations.

Poor Joy. She wants to be anywhere but...there.

More stupidity produced by TLC and close-minded Duggarism. They chose that house because it was BIG and stand-alone, which is what they're used to. PERIOD. But hey, makes for better filming, right? The challenge of moving furniture up the ridiculously designed front door steps (should be fun with 3 kids and groceries in tow); having to drive to work (public transportation is for girls and liberals, of course!); all the extra cleaning (keep the wife busy and in need of sister help!); its own yard to maintain (wouldn't want neighbors infecting us with green hair and such)... A lot more for TLC to film is Anna has to drag 3 kids in the metro to get to a mommy-and-me class that she could have walked to in the second house they saw (you know, the one where 3 floors meant she might "lose" the kids given some inexplicable impossibility of using stair gates?).

JB detects dirty diaper - immediately seeks female. LMAO

Hey, TLC, remember when you had Jon and Kate sell all their baby crap to raise $ for the hospital that treated the sextuplets? Of course you do! But this isn't a simple GARAGE sale - JimBob is a successful, manly business man, after all. This is a FLEA MARKET - so you can charge for ADMISSION!

Even when they do something right (clean storage unit), they do it stupid (such a hot mess you can't find/use any of it). Why-oh-why, if they expect their own kids to have 18 kids each (not -19 or 20 bc we wouldn't want them outdoing their parents), would their sell ANY of their baby stuff?! And WHY did we ever see Anna and Josh buy ANYTHING when the parents had all that stuff stashed away?! Even if expecting more kids, they already had more than necessary and THEY could have bought more given their income as a small/kind gesture to their kids. Oh, yeah... Wouldn't have left much to film for TLC. Got it.

There were several comments about what jobs are for men and what is women's work. Michelle objected to Jim Bob asking a couple of the sister-moms to help him with heavy lifting. One of the boys mentioned that shopping is for girls.

Jim Bob noticed that Josie was wet and took her to one of the sister-moms to get changed. As a dad of 19, he should have a bit of experience dressing a toddler. I think Michelle was in the room, too, but he went looking for one of his daughters.

God forbid JimBoob or Michelle change a diaper or wash a messy bottem. The sister wives need to be freed. I feel so sorry for them. Even if they want to be Happy Homemakers, nothing wrong with that. In the meantime, take a class, find a hobby, expand your horizons, don't waste your years changing your siblings dirty diapers. The more I see the more I dislike JimBoob and Michelle.

This episode last night had 1.543 million viewers and a .4 rating.

Willow said...

Maybe with Josie almost completely potty-trained, perhaps they will let one of the older girls (I guess Jessa) get married. LOL, but that makes me think they must be talking about adopting so Johanna and Jennifer will have plenty to do as they get older. I'm laughing, but it isn't at all funny.

sandi said...

Yes,recall Jill changing a diaper and saying they need 'smell -a- vision' instead of television? And Jim Bob and Michelle were both there.
It appears they don't do even the basic baby care for their little ones.I've long since said there's a difference between saying to your older kids "bring me a diaper" or "hand me the baby wipes" ,which I think is fine,and having someone else do the work.I,too,hope all the adoption talk is just for the show,which I think it is.

Ashley said...

I hope Anna kept going to the play group. The weekly "mommy and me" groups kept me sane, and I only had one kid! I can't imagine knowing no one and not having a job to meet people at. It would be good for her to make some mom friends.

sandi said...

I kind of doubt Anna will be going back to the playgroup.I think it was just for the show,and any groups the kids meet with on a reg. basis will be homeschool/fundie groups only.They still need to fir the mold.JMO.

As an atheist homeschooling mom, I think that the Mommy and Me playgroups are wonderful! My kids and I have also joined Christian homeschool groups before and were always met with open arms. I hope Anna makes it to more playgroups; they are great!
