Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

Recommended Posts

Out of all the marrieds, I think Joy and Austin are the happiest and living the most authentic life. I'd put Joe and Kendra in at a close second, but Joe's dependence on Boob will always hold him back.

and pa keller surely let anna marry the sex pest because of the show

He married one daughter off to the crown prince of a famous TV family and another off to Bill Gothard’s protégé/right hand man. Fundie social climbing at its finest.

I just read a new TLC interview with Joy Anna talking about the upcoming birth of the new baby. She talks about the "new" experience of taking care of a baby girl. Why do the Duggar daughters always do this? They always talk about taking care of kids like they've never done it before, when we all know they've been experienced moms taking care of their "buddies" since they were like 10 years old. It's so ridiculous. Joy Anna knows about caring for a baby girl. She's been a buddy/surrogate mom to at least 5 of them. Just admit it. Jessa did the same thing with potty training, when we can all count how many little boys she has actually potty trained (like 10 of them).

Joy also talked about her own casual style and we know that she herself was a tomboy. Yet she can't wait to dress up her little girl with frilly dresses and bows. I've raised 3 girls - that stuff is not necessary!

It's beyond me, but I agree that it's extremely irritating.  Perhaps they feel they must put up this false narrative that they had young/baby siblings, but were not surrogate parents for them?  We all know that they took care of those little kids - it was part of the show!   The worst offender IMO in Jessa - she acts like every move her mop-head kids make is utterly fascinating, yet she pretty much raised a few of her younger brothers.  I guess it's different when it's your own kid?

Joy was less a sister mom than her older sisters, because she's younger than them. I think Josie was supposed to be Joy's first buddy, but Josie was premature and they moved Josie to the most experienced Jana. Joy spent a lot of time with the boys when she was little. It wasn't until she was into her teens that she got moved to the girl group. She took over Jill's buddy group when Jill got married. Jill was 23, Joy was 16, and Jennifer was 6. 

It's possible Joy was an aunt mom to Meredith, but she may not have been. Anna may have been taking care of her own baby while Josh was in Jesus Jail.

Basically this. Joy-Anna had the least sister-mom duties any Duggar girl will have save for Jordyn and Josie (I think Johannah and Jennifer will be helping Anna with her brood). Jill (who was very caring and nurturing to her buddies) cared for ALL of them, but I don't think she wanted Joy-Anna to model that behavior. Now Joy has probably spent more hours caring for kids than many 23 year old women with one child, but no where near the amount the four older girls did, they basically raised the Howlers through Jordyn. 

 

Also, even though the girls had WAY too much responsibility, there were other ppl around if you needed help. Austin does have a work ethic and has to be gone sometimes doing xyz. Joy-Anna has likely never cared for small child all ALONE on a routine basis. There was always at least another teenager around to help out or grab something for her.

My sister has worn make-up four times in her life. She wears nice jeans to dress up. She only wears her wedding ring for jewelry. She used to detest the color pink. Yet when she had a baby girl, she was so excited to buy her girly dresses and bows. Her daughter is now 2 and will rip off the bows anytime my sister puts them on her, so she's given up on that. But she still dresses her pretty girly. Maybe it's a hormonal shift during pregnancy that makes the moms embrace the girliness they rejected for themselves?

I have three daughters, grew up one of four sisters. I'm not super girly, but my first daughter was such a beautiful baby I just wanted to put her in all of the pink frilly stuff I could find. My other two girls were more suited to blue and purple, but I still did the frills and lace and headbands because they were do freaking adorable. They are still young enough that they dress up like princessed sometimes, but their personalities shift over time. Right now the oldest is obsessed with Halloween and creepy stuff, but still wants to do it in a pretty way. The middle one is all pink sparkles and fairy wings, and the youngest loves yellow and asked for a dress with an airplane on it.

Joy can have fun dressing up her daughter for awhile. She and Austen strike me as parents who will let her modify her style once she is a little older, albeit within the restrictions of their belief system. Joy's style is basically jeans and tshirts, as long as the jeans are a skirt.

There was a video posted on Reddit where Joy does some organising, taking her son to the TTH and going to a Doctor for pre-natal care (pick yourselves off that floor!). It was really strangely relatable, she seems relaxed and happy, wee Giddy-up is a total dote and even Austin showed up.

Now I'm off to scour myself with something coarse and stingy for liking a Duggar video😱

Did anyone else notice how marred up, crappy looking & cruddy the TTH side entrance door is in the video? It is shown quickly when Joy & Giddy arrive.  It is the original door & it seems  they use this entrance the most because it's near the parking area.  Maybe the Duggar Construction Crew could remove themselves from the sofas & put in a new one.

It's amazing how run down their properties are considering they're a family of able-bodied adults and NOBODY works.

 That requires money for a door combined with something a little too close to work.

They didn't even have any landscaping near the front entrance until around 3 or 4 years ago.

Save me some soap. I liked the video too. She's cute and relatable and seems like a normal person. And Giddy is adorable. How old is she again? I can't keep up.

All cute and Giddy is adorable.  Hard to reconcile blanket training, since he is joyful on the videos.  But, as normal as she seems in the video, which I watched, I know behind that are hateful beliefs that would be aimed directly at me.  So that takes away any good feelings I might have.

On another thread someone shared that JB is going to speak at the Big Sandy COVID festival. The blurb they shared says that "God is at work" in the Duggar household. 

Well I suppose it's a good thing somebody besides Jana is at work there.

this pic opened up on my page showing them all from the neck down. so I looked at it that way first before the full pic, what I noticed - Jana has her apple watch, Jessa is the one touching/holding Josie in place, michelle is holding glasses in her hand rather than her phone, Jordyn has a piece of flowered curtain sewn on the bottom of her dress, their shoes are sad, and michelle does sometimes not wear the black stockings and ortho shoes

Joy would be a fool if she tried a home birth. I'm so glad that she's getting real prenatal care by a dr. Her sisters should follow suit.

Jenni has gotten tall. But, Mack is also almost as tall as Lauren! Granted, Lauren is short, but still...

Actually, I thought Joy looked absolutely beautiful in her pictures.

I guess knees must be covered for the lost girls. Jenni and Josie are wearing leggings to cover their knees and Jordyn has a curtain remnant sewn to the bottom of her dress. Johannah's dress looks long enough to cover her hers, but I wouldn't be surprised if she had to wear leggings also, just in case.

I hope they're getting regular doctor's appointments for Josie. If she doesn't start growing Meredith is going to pass her up in a couple of years.

Mechelle tends to stand hunched, but she also has a very big head. 

Speaking of Meredith, her expression on the last pic is priceless.
