I think Shay sees type A as a positive thing. I'm thinking about the gingerbread house group project with "four type A's" participating.

Waking up early seems to be Shay's catch-all for how she manages to do everything.  However when she shows us what she does before the kids wake up in her "day in the life" posts those hours seem to be filled with her watching a tv show, reading her bible, posting to the blog and then going to the kitchen to unload the dishwasher.  These are all nice things to get out of the way before the kids wake up, but it's not exactly the Super Woman levels of organization and time management that she is claiming to have. 

 

Did you read poor Erica's post about her goals?  Everything she listed could be achieved if only she could wake up earlier.  Shay seems to have convinced everyone around her that all of their personal failures (and of course her superiority) is based on the time that they wake up.

I follow Jen Hatmaker on Facebook and she wrote a status about not doing huge birthday parties for her kids after a certain age and how their youngest daughter is a huge extrovert who couldn't handle the idea of not having all of her people at her big day, but it's always emotional for her. In the comments below, she said that her adopted kids have unique issues handling Big Days and Big Emotions. I couldn't help but think of Shay and how she'd never admit anything like that because it paints a less-than-perfect picture, but I thought Jen's words were the perfect mix of being real but not revealing too much. THAT is how you share things about your family, Shay.

I just saw a post on facebook from my favorite blogger m.blazoned where she talks about how she gets e-mails daily from companies "reaching out" to try to get her to spotlight their product on her blog.  Her response, "I don't use my platform and blogging voice to surreptitiously manipulate my audience for money" gave me pause, because that is EXACTLY what Shady and her minions do! 

 

Sadly, there are hardly any bloggers out there that take that stand anymore…

Wow the last several posts here about adoption are dead on. She makes it look easy because TO HER IT IS. She doesn't point out adoption-related behaviors because she doesn't know that's what they are.  I think in her mind, what could possibly go wrong? They're loved! They're rich! They're well dressed, they travel the world! What more could they want? And I don't doubt for even a second that they're loved, I just think her "everything will work out, God's got this" attitude will keep her from being aware of the more important issues.  

I really wish she'd stop with all the adoption hashtags, it's horrible for those girls.  It's over and done. NO ONE has to be reminded. Especially them! She might as well take a big fat sharpie and write it on their foreheads!!!

There is no way her husband is not gay. None. S

If that's true he might have never had a chance to come out of the closet.

I don't remember the details but I do recall reading that after Shady met Shiny, she drove hours every weekend and stayed in hotels in his college town to be there and it really did read as though she was stalking him. She was in hot pursuit of the NFL wife life. Then he became besties with papa perve and eventually was obligated to pop the question (even that story changes with each telling) and there you have it, desperation that paid off (until, of course, the story was rewritten to substitute "insurance salesman" for NFL player.)

Ah, true love. True lasered Shiny love.

They went to PF Changs to celebrate "Gotcha Day". That's her nod at Ashly's heritage? I find it hard to believe she's been outside of her zip code.

Their annual tradition is to go to PF Changs.  Let that stupidity sink in.

We celebrated my Adoption Day yearly.  Is gotcha the new thang/slang? 

I thought Shady and Shiny met and had an instant connection?

She connected instantly to the fact that he was going to the NFL.

Did anyone else notice the big bottle of "Bio Cleanse" (a weight loss supplement) in the picture of the two girls at the computer?

That makes me sad to think of the extreme measures she goes to in order to be her version of "perfection."

Good catch.  I have a friend who used this for weight loss and swore by it, but I don't know much about it.

I have read that it is a treatment for constipation and while I do not want to even venture into contemplating Shay's gastrointestinal status, I do hope that she is not using it for weight loss. The woman is already a size XS. How much thinner does she want to be?

I'm sure they need to cleanse their systems regularly given the number of times they go out to eat…PF Changs ain't health food!

 

which brings me to my other point, why doesn't a "Foodie" with published cookbooks, take these special occasions such as Adoption Day, Birthday, etc. to cook?  Just another missed opportunity for Shay to really connect to these kids.
