What nonsense does Jessa have tacked up on the wall above the loveseat?

 

kid quotes she found on the internet to practice with Spurge and Henry so they can practice them and on command say such witty and cute things???? Counting On scripts for her and Bin to memorize their lines??

Two of the pages on the wall seem to be pages from a song book or hymnal. can't make out the one on the left.

I think there are some funny kids out there, I just don't find Jessa's brood to be among them. Of course, no fault on Henry and Spurge, considering Jessa is likely fabricating and embellishing the majority of what they say. 

Exactly. I cannot stand her clearly embellished “sayings of” shit. I’m a kid person most of the time, and some stuff they say tickles me endlessly. For example when I was 8 and brother was 3, my parents drove to Vegas with us in the backseat for a weekend. My brother was crapped out, sleeping in his booster/car seat as we pulled into the hotel parking area and our mom asked our dad “do we do valet parking?” From a sound sleep my brother blurted out “we don’t even like that kind of dancing!” And passed back out. I tease him about it to this day. He’s turning 34 next month. 😂

Truth be told, I personally subscribe to a social media site (of sorts) where people share cute/weird things things that their little kids say and do. It's called the family text chain, and it has eight members: me and Mr. Portia, our three grown kids, and their spouses. We all get a kick out of daily pics, vids, and anecdotes about the grandkids because we have similar senses of humor and because--and is is key--we know and love the kids. I'm pretty sure that's how it is supposed to work, Jessa.

Maybe Spurge and Henry are going over ways their future spouses can give birth at home. Using household items to move labor along and collect, well, you know, collect the stuff that comes out during childbirth. Jill may not always be available with her medical thingies.

A lot of people don't have kids or grandchildren to look at photos or videos of. I've described the Duggar fanbase as wannabe parents and grandparents. And since the same children are filmed for television, they're already somewhat-known and loved to their fans.

I never send photos of kids to people who don't have kids or grandkids. Two categories: 1. Sensitive because they were unable to have kids. 2. Don't like kids, so don't want to see pix.

Right, but fans of the Duggars like to see kids and like kids otherwise they wouldn't be Duggar fans.  And I do think a lot of the Duggar fans don't have kids or grandkids of their own. Especially because for many families these days there's a huge gap between grandchildren and children. Like Jeremy Vuolo's family. He was about 30 when Felicity was born and he's the youngest child and first father.

At least Spurgeon is a distinctive enough name that most people only know of one. Every other little boy is named Henry, Jessa. (It's been a top 50 name since 2012 and was #16 in 2018.)  You need to go back to unique names or include the middle or last name in the hashtag.

Someone should ask Jessa what Ivy's percentiles are the next time she posts a pic of her. Jessa will have to scroll on by since it's doubtful that kid has seen a pediatrician.

Does Jessa not own a comb and brush? Her children's hair is always unkempt.

Ivy is a strange looking child right enough, she looks like Jinger actually, I think. Poor Henry is always getting the short stick though, isn't he?

Jessa cuts the boys hair like they need a comb-over. I think its to try and encourage the waviness. She should just let the curly thing go and give them a nice short summer haircut.

I guess nobody's ever taken Spurge to one of the restaurants that serve pizza with macaroni and cheese on it. 

Given the amount of yellow and beige food the Duggars eat, I'm surprised.

When Ivy’s 16 you’ll still have eight other kids after her, Jessa.  Even if you don’t, your life will be a wreck then. Enjoy your fake InstaLife while it lasts!

Let Jessa and Bin both be struck with either infertility or good sense before that happens.

One or two more at most would be a perfectly lovely family for two people with virtually no earning power if JB should decide to take his money and run or split it equally among his legions of offspring.

Of course she could be pregnant now. That being said I think Lauren is the next one to announce a pregnancy.

Given how much emphasis is put on instant obedience or else I'm not surprised the boys didn't eat the candy.

Jessa shared this because her boys were both obedient. I thought Henry looked like he'd like a nap!

Haha! I'd actually wear it, and I'm Waaaay past any "maternal" possibilities. Actually, I have a very similar  thing I got in the Wal-Mart nightgown section about 6 years ago, which I have been known to wear all day when I don't have to go anywhere. It kinda needs to be replaced.

Jessa likes to hide her pregnancies for as long as possible. That's all I was hinting at. She didn't announce Ivy until around 19 weeks.

At times recently (Ivy's birthday YouTube video, for one) she has looked potentially pregnant, but she's also had three kids in less than 5 years. I wonder if her body just hasn't "bounced back" yet and she's more comfortable wearing loss fitting outfits.

No, she occasionally wears form-fitting clothes and has since Ivy was born. She bounces back fairly easily.
