Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

It has to suck for Jill if her headship and dad don't get along. Like are her thoughts ping-ponging in her head or is she standing by her man?

I think she’s standing by her #besthubbyever.  I think it’s entirely possible, and maybe even probable, that Jill is estranged from her parents.

I am HERE for Derrick calling out Jim Bob. YES! Isn't this what we all wanted? Someone to stand up for the older girls who basically had their childhoods stolen and exploited !!

MENTION IT ALL DERRICK!  I'll listen! 

And fuck jim bob for not paying his kids for their time on the show. I'm not a leghumper but I support this feud. KInd of want to give props to Derick for actually having a backbone. 

If Derrick wants to rake in a significant amount of money, all he has to do is write a tell-all.  It’ll sell like hot cakes.  I don’t know that he would ever do it as long as he and Jill are married, but if they were to divorce, I think he would do it in a New York minute.  He hates JBoob that much IMO.

While I want Derrick to sing like a canary, it has to suck for Jill to be semi estranged from her parents.  I’m pretty sure she was Jim Bob’s favorite and now they don’t even seem to be communicating.  He’s an ass, but it’s hard to fall that far from someone’s favor.  Jill can’t even see Michelle unless they’re on neutral ground.  Sadly, that must also mean that she doesn’t see her first set of kids buddies James and Jenni as often since they’re still under Jim Bob’s rule. Terrible situation for her.

Agreed. Family is still family.

If Jill is estranged from JB, I'd blame Derick though. As much of an arrogant asshole JB is, I don't believe he'd cut off any of his children. 

Derick could quietly disagree with, and be angry at, JB and still be considerate enough for Jill to feel comfortable enough to hang with the gang.

But maybe, just maybe, Jill is actually seeing things more clearly and is actually disappointed in her dad as well.

Maybe all these awkward floundering-at-life posts we see from Jill are her trying to shake the cult. She'll still be a hateful uber-Christian, but stepping away from the cult is always a good thing.

Wow Izzy is TALL. My son is 5 and he's still in a 5 point harness booster because he doesn't meet the height requirements for a belted booster. But I see that Izzy's legs are already meeting the "can hang down over the seat" rule. Goodness.

Israel's height may not be a great thing for him. Taller children are generally perceived to be older than they are and expect their behavior to match their height. Given that Derick and Jill are harsh parents anyway, they probably expect Israel to behave as though he were 5 or 6 instead of 4.

Izzy's size has been talked about since he was born. I wish I could see him next to some of his cousins. I bet he's at similar height as Josie and Marcus, who are older. 

Although Sam was approximately the same size at birth, he doesn't strike me as being as overly tall for a two-year-old the way Izzy is at age four.

I'd love that, but I don't really think we can expect Derick to show that much courage. I think he's just going to continue to make these passive-aggressive little sideswipes, hinting vaguely that there's trouble between him and Jill's family, but never coming right out and  saying exactly what the trouble is.

Yes, and his next step is likely to be that he never said that he had any issues with JB.  That's how Derrick-Drama usually goes.  We are just "miss understanding* (tm Lauren Duggar) him.  We're the problem in Derdick's world.  🙄

I think Jill got paid. Where else did Derelict come up with that $12k to go to Cross Church's "school" for a year? They certainly didn't make any money in Danger America. What excess they made was spent on a lot of airfare.

And they bought a house and are paying Derrick’s tuition.

But I wonder if JB has cut them off now that TLC has.

 It was the people that actually donated to them that made the money they spent. Still have yet to see any kind of formal accounting from them of that.

I don't have kids, so I don't know about them much... but isn't Israel too old for naps? Isn't he like 5 or 6? Just wondering, not judging.

And how did the two morons J&D have such cute kids?!?! These two young guys are more adult than the idiots raising them ---- how is that possible?!?!

Israel is 4.5.  He's on the borderline for napping.  Some do and some have given it up at that age.  Most pre-schools at least put the kids down for a rest in the four year old room.  Over half usually fall asleep at least for a short nap.

Israel will be 5 in April.

FWIW, back in the 90s, when I was in kindergarten at 5, we still had naps scheduled as part of our schoolday. I don't have kids, either, though, so I don't know what is considered normal now! (As an adult, I am a big fan of naps, though. 🙂

That's very helpful! I didn't see your post before I replied. Do you know what kindergartens do? As I mentioned, in the mid-90s, they still let us have a regular nap time in the afternoon. Does that still happen?

I think this is more of Derick's evasive double-speak. There's nothing here that he hasn't said before.

I think that the Duggars dislike him because 1) he's an asshole, and 2) he is supposed to fall in line and do what JB tells him, and he doesn't.

He dislikes the Duggars because he thought he was hopping on the gravy train with Jill, and she's turned out be a lemon.

No naps in Kindergarten.  Kindergarten is the new 1st grade.  Lots of work, very little play, no napping.

Most public and possibly most  private kindergartens have phased out having nap time.  Most school districts have also pushed the entering age to 5 by 9/1 instead of going to December as some used to do.

Oh wow--that's interesting. I honestly can't remember a lot of kindergarten (mainly being read aloud to and some work on the alphabet and numbers but I had been reading since I was 2, so it wasn't new to me), but I do remember the naps! 🙂

Here, they don't have naps in kindergarten, but they have quiet time after lunch. They lie on mats in a darkened and listen to the teacher read a story or two. One or two children in the class will nap for a bit, but most just listen to the story.

I meant to say "darkened room".

With starting school or preschool so early, I think your children "have to" grow up so quickly.

In my country kids start school at 6 1/2-7 1/2 years. Until then they are in kindergarden. School year starts in September, and they usually have naps until April/May. 

My son is almost 6. At home he does not nap, mostly, but in kindergarden they  get up early, have lots of activities, so they are ready to sleep after lunch.

I think that DDD paid the $12,000 for that Cross Church useless certificate with money they grubbed from their missionary 'work'. As far as buying a house, I believe he and Dan inherited their father's share of their grandparents' estate.

Actually I'm sure they're alive. Derick and Jill took the boys to see his Dillard grandparents. If one of them had died, there would have been at least one tribute on social media. (Basing this on the way the Dillards use social media, not social media in general.)

I saw the picture on Reddit and I won’t repost it here, because there is something very icky about posting a coffin for an adjacent relative’s child. I don’t think Jill is close at all with this poor baby’s mother, so any sympathetic comments won’t go to the person who needs to be healed. Nope, all so people pay attention to Jill. It’s so gross.

Wasn't this the family member whom someone once said Jill was all gung ho about assisting with her birth (which I assume would have been Tyler's), before JimBob forbade it because the family member wasn't married?   I assumed so, because it seems like the kind of thing that excited cousins would think up on their own if they had their own separate relationship; and we know from some things Amy has said, that she spent a lot of time with her cousins growing up.  It also isn't surprising that Tyler's mom getting teen-pregnant was deemed so mortifying that Jill couldn't doula; and possibly had to pretend she didn't know the cousin for multiple years if she was making a raft of other bad lifestyle decisions (which it seems she was).

It's more common for younger kids not to nap anymore.  I have a 3 year old and people are shocked that he is still napping.  I'm going to continue it as long as possible, but he'll have to stop by Kingergarten when he's 5.  I don't blame Jill for having Izzy nap.  Most kids are more pleasant in the afternoon after some rest.  It's a shame that society is so go-go-go these days and that many toddlers stop napping early.

I totally nap during my son's naptime as well on certain days!

Wasn't there one of Derick's grandmothers at the Dullard's wedding who later died?  She had white hair & sat with his family members during the service.  I think J & D visited her after the wedding, maybe at Thanksgiving & Jill posted a picture of the visit.

Does anyone remember this lady?  Maybe she was a family friend & not a relative  but she could have left Derick some money.

She was Derick's mother's mother, and yes she could have.  It was during the first year they were married.

If you want an active child to go to bed at a decent time you need to cut back on nap time. I stopped taking naps at age 3 and was ready for bed at 7:30. 
A friend of mine had a very active child who she insisted take naps until she was 7! She couldn’t understand why said child didn’t want to go to bed at 8:00. (Duh.. She wasn’t tired.)

Per Derelict's Twitter, they were part of the tornadoes that ripped through TX and AR last night. He said they huddled in their hallway. He didn't mention any damage, so I assume they survived unscathed.

I visited several non-tourist towns in Mexico several years ago, and siestas are a real thing there.  The entire town shuts down for a couple of hours every afternoon so people can rest.

someone was killed during those storms in Rogers, so at least they were wisely taking cover. Not so wisely tweeting about it.
