    Oy vey.

    So another baby for Janelle to find a way to feed (come on, we know she’s the only one working), another baby to score another season, and another reason for Meri to cry about how “barren” she is when she has a perfectly healthy (albeit bitchy) daughter.

    Thanks for watching this show so I can just make fun of them with you! Every so often when I am too lazy to hold the remote and turn the channel I will catch an episode and I always regret it.

    But they are fun to judge, so I guess it works out ok.

    So my DVR cut off right before the big announcement but it doesn’t sound like I missed anything. Whew.

    It bothered me that they were labeling the kids. They’re people, with many sides to their personalities. I guess when you have so many it’s easier to just stereotype them. Sucks for the kids.

    And glossing over Janelle’s divorce but outing out Robyn’s, well that’s weird. And unfair to Robyn.

    I wish Kody would at least pretend he’s attracted to Janelle. It must hurt her feelings every time he talks about how practical their relationship is. I guess she’s just there to pop out babies and keep track of the finances. Sad.
