Yeah, I've been lurking on this thread for a long (looong) time, but I've been reading Jenna since she wrote for weddingbee. A lot of the stories tend to get exaggerated over time. But they pale in comparison with the things that come straight out of Jenna's mouth. It's shocking to me that she doesn't realize that she is her own worst enemy.

Luckily, the infamous marriage Powerpoint will live on forever:

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/12DVTVd3SJWy0TQ-KgqCeblHdxIdG4jdhcBJeVyWgAgI/edit#slide=id.i0

What on earth is this?

 

It's the Powerpoint presentation she created to convince TH to marry her, since he wasn't attracted to her and didn't even really want to date her. I wish I was kidding, but unfortunately am not.

What the f**k did I just read?

Funny I've never thought the stories have gotten exaggerated. Jenna REALLY IS that bad.

Her 30 before 30 list is up on the blog.  All this eating doesn't align with her goal to wear a bikini.

In regards to her 30 before 30: Newsflash Jenna, plantains are not sweet like bananas. I think you're gonna be in for a surprise with that burrito.

Small potatoes, but on her 30 Before 30 list on her blog, she says she'd like to try the fried plantain and black bean burrito at The Little Chihuahua. She says she wants to try it because, "That combination of savory and sweet [is] calling out to me." This tells me she doesn't know what a plantain is. Plantains taste like and have a similar texture to potatoes and are used in cooking as such. Yes, they are related to and look like bananas, but they aren't like them in terms of taste. If she's expecting a sweet-savory combination, she may be disappointed.

I and the other people that have been reading since she got married can help confirm what is fact and what has been exaggerated in our snarking-fun (though my internet research skills aren't as masterful as some of you!). I just have a good memory of all the WTF since, especially after she got pregnant the first time, has been almost constant. 

 

There was a short time before she got pregnant that I thought she was normal enough, but being pregnant and having T1 revealed how incredibly insane she is.  And that's what I wonder about current readers/friends – do they have no frame of reference?  I'll never understand how they can't detect how hateful and terrible she is, particularly as a mother.  She may not abuse her kids in the way that is obvious and glaring to many, but she is completely and totally setting them up for issues in the future. Namely, the moment they read their mom's blog.  I'm sad for that day when they put it all together that if she could go back and do it again, she probably wouldn't be a mother ("Absent Mormonism I would have approached the decision to have children in a much more studied, personal fashion. I never even knew/thought being childless was an option for me.").  That's got to make the kids feel good someday. And the way T1 will see the stark difference in treatment between him as a baby and T2 – surroundings, home, the way she openly talks of her frustrations with him, but nothing but glowing love and adoration for T2.  That will hurt.

The bolded text is something I've been wondering for a long time. It is baffling that she continues to have friends and fans. Maybe if a new reader didn't know a single thing about her, and read just one of her more innocuous day-in-the-life posts, maybe they would give her the benefit of the doubt at first. Maybe the reader would think that she's a little sheltered and spoiled, but that she was also struggling to find her way while chasing after two very young children all day, and maybe the reader would think "Aw, being a parent is a real struggle sometimes! I get that." I can see how someone could generate an ounce of sympathy for that.

But if you stick around for any longer, she will eventually post something that reveals the WTF-ery, and it becomes resoundingly obvious that she's not just a normal mom who deals with the same struggles that any parent does. A normal parent would not say the mind-bogglingly dreadful things that she has said and continues to say about her poor son. It is hard to empathize with her for any length of time because she has no empathy for anyone else.

I honestly wonder if some of her fans just don't see the extent of how messed up she is. But how do you not see it?

How is eating a burrito a personal goal? Get in your car, drive to burrito joint, order burrito, eat. Took you longer to write that shit down than it does to actually get off your ass and go DO IT.

To all the folks new to TW: She's appalling, horrible, and neglectful to her children. We do not call CPS. Her children have contact with mandatory reporters, she has family, a husband, and tons of others who can (and it seems possibly have) call. It doesn't matter anyway because she's a narcissist who is neglectful and abusive in invisible ways that CPS won't ever have the time to do anything about. Unless kids show up with broken arms and legs like 5 times, investigations basically just confirm they aren't living in a cage.

Most of us are friendly hams in this long standing thread, and we're glad to have some new snarkeys, but spend a couple of minutes browsing the old thread (there's a locked thread of 1000 pages, no one expects anyone to read it all, but there is some amazing material in there and you'd be missing out if you didn't get some of the WTF from the source).

i can't remember what it was exactly, but the craziest part of this sentence to me was, that when I was lurking on her blog a couple of months ago, I found an old post that she said something along the lines of knowing that she could wait to have children or not have them at all. Now I have to find it, because it was before she had T1. But of course, I shouldn't be surprised- Jenna is nothing if not always looking for a narrative that puts someone else at fault for her shitty decision making and her inability to listen to other people. She was desperate for a baby, and everyone told her to wait, and then she didn't like that it was work once the baby turned out to be a tiny person and not a photo prop like one of those mustaches on sticks – so now she wishes she had been childless, and everyone else made her have the baby.

I am a mandatory reporter. You would be shocked and horrified with what CPS in my state refuses to follow up on. I was visiting a family once and found their 6-year-old son locked out of the apartment, screaming hysterically. A neighbor told me he had been out there for at least two hours screaming. This was winter, the hall was not heated, and it was freezing cold. While I was talking to the neighbor, the child's mom opened the front door and kicked the child flat in the chest with her shoe, he crashed into me, and then we both fell down a flight of steps. CPS basically told me sorry, nothing we can do because the police didn't see it. When I stated (again) that I was a mandatory reporter, they said they would look into but they never did. 

Not to hijack this thread re: CPS but in my experience, CPS is a joke. I have made hundreds of reports of actual physical abuse and violence and they never follow up. It is truly tragic. What hope can we have for children suffering from emotional/verbal abuse when they won't even follow up on physical violence towards a child? So no, I am not surprised that CPS in California is any different. CPS makes me sick.

The only exception I have ever seen is when a woman delivers a child addicted to drugs. They intervene then. I guess I should be grateful for that. rolleyes

Scary thought, but some of her supporters could be like-minded individuals, who — instead of shaking their heads at her horribleness — nod along in understanding.
