Sigh.  I know this is a snark site, but I still feel weird confessing that I was hoping she'd get knocked up with twins or triplets – just something to throw her off balance.  Or, to have a complicated (but ultimately safe because I am not the devil) pregnancy.  Blerg.

 

I know she has had some tough times – husband had cancer when she was pregnant with #4 –  but she wasn't blogging then and so when she writes about even that episode it is all "tra la la, he had cancer but we flew all the way to Lourdes and got our miracle"  (Because we're rich and white and can do things like that…)

 

And, it took a few google clicks to find out that yes, St. Monica's is heavily Opus Dei.

Yes, yes, yes!

Didn't she post on facebook that they usually celebrate this feast quietly and they are at an amusement park? confused

Omgosh at the cost for a family of ten just to get into a theme park.

I'm confused, too, about whether they traveled to Florida from California?  There used to be only one Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and it was in Orlando.  I am also wondering why it looks so empty in her pictures! No hordes of people in the background of their wide family pic.

I'm not sure whether they're in FL or CA, but I'm guessing the reason for the lack of people in the background of the photo is that it was a random weekday in December.  (Jack, Bobby, & Betty's school had the day off because it was Immaculate Conception.)

I'm late to the game here and hadn't peeked at her blog for awhile, but holy shit that blog post about Christopher Columbus?! "He was really greedy and selfish and you know, initiated 500 years and counting of death and slavery for Native Americans and Africans, but also totally loved god so it's cool and since that's really what matters we still consider him to be a 'hero' and stuff."

Like, no…I'm pretty sure that no matter how much someone blathers about doing things for sake of god or whatever, when those things being done are ushering in genocide and completely wiping out entire indigenous peoples as a direct result of your self-driven greed for wealth and power, you forfeit the right to be called a hero in any kind of capacity. But what do I know, I'm not a weird Catholic mommy blogger going through life wearing blinders and propping up grotesque historical revisionism.

You know what makes me really sad? Not once in her post about the new baby has Kendra said that SHE is excited or acknowledged the baby is a blessing from god. Nope, the kids are excited to "have a tiebreaker," but that's it. I know so many women DESPERATE for one baby that her blase attitude and lack of gratitude make me very mad.

That might be true. I definitely think she takes it for granted. I feel like she maybe wanted to be done but she can't eat her words and make an effort to be done or space them (ie use NFP) because she's trying to project a certain image that she is open to life and takes babies as they come. Or her husband is really the one pushing the babies and she just goes along with how horrible NFP is but doesn't really believe it.

I'm amazed at the effort she (and all of these catholic parents do) goes to to think up a whole load of disguises to fool people into thinking that the kids are celebrating Halloween when they are actually playing Saints. How does she come up with all these ideas several times every year?

Yeah, you may be right. Still, if you're not even in a place to FAKE gratitude about a pregnancy, why rush to tell the internet at nine weeks?

eyeroll to the card and letter. man, she is pretentious and annoying. and, you're right…this baby is only important for being a tiebreaker. which means #10 has to happen to even if it off because of course she can control the sex of the baby.rolleyesrolleyesrolleyesrolleyes

I'm 99% sure they were in CA. They just opened a Harry Potter World there as well (in April 2016, I believe).
