One More Reason Why I Don't Care About TV

So I will admit it. I was a huge fan of John and Kate Plus 8.

Notice the key work in that last sentence -was.

Now of course I had heard about the scandal and controversy as the media accused John of cheating on Kate. Fine, they have chosen to live their life a bit in the spotlight and I can handle that. They had to know that things like this would probably happen. And I honestly don't care all that much if he cheated or not. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23

But after watching just a little bit of the season permier last night, I am finished with this show.

One of the things I appreciated about JK8 was their commitment to their faith and marriage. There were episodes of them going to church and just last season they renewed their marriage vows in Hawaii.

And yet, when they were interviewed in the last episode, it basically sounded like their marraige was over. There was no mention of it being tough, but we are going to make it through. We are going to stick together no matter what. Nothing.

Now, I hope and pray that they surprise me and that their marriage does survive. But until I hear that, I don't plan on tuning in any more.

I've watched a few episodes too...especially of the last season, and was also surprised. They did talk so much about how they are married and it is a lifetime commitment and then suddenly it is like, "it got too tough. everything is off." (I haven't seen the premier yet though.)

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
