The second storyline in this ep was yet again the tiresome topic of Meri and her “fertility”. Meri clearly isn’t going to have any more children. Period. (Period! HA! I crack myself up!) Precisely where are they going to get the tens of thousands of dollars fertility treatment costs? If your eggs aren’t viable, no amount of treatment in the world will cure that. As for Robin’s noble suggestion that she carry the kid – that wouldn’t be Meri’s kid, it would be Robin’s. Cause again, Meri’s eggs are clearly not in the picture. This entire idea is a nonstarter.
Which begs the question, why is Meri insisting on a huge home for just herself, cause Mariah is leaving for college in what, a year or so? I say “college”, I mean of course “plural marriage”. Meri should be living with one of the other wives, having her own master bedroom/bath, but otherwise sharing the house. You know, like plural wives do. This whole wet bar thing is idiotic. I see how it might be useful for a non-drinker (such as myself) cause you could get water, whatever, but you could also, oh, walk to the kitchen and do that. Or have a pitcher of water. Or get an inexpensive rolly cart and put beverages on that.
At one point, Mariah confronts Meri and says she wants Meri to try for another kid. Little Miss Smartass, you have 22 brothers and sisters. You don’t need another one!
Besides, you’ll be knocked up yourself soon enough. Wonder that number wife Mariah will be?
The ep ended with Meri saying that she would give Kody her decision on whether she wants to undergo fertility treatment when they move into the houses. So how long does it take to build a house? 6 months? More? She’s just bought herself the better part of a year, hasn’t she? I’m no Kody fan, but he deserves better here. So do the other wives.
Here’s what I’d like to see: someone – anyone – in this family actually man up. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
On to the 3rd ep, which was all about a vacation with the Dargers, another plig family and the Browns’ complete opposite.
We open with Kody driving to everyone’s house to get their preferences for the as-yet-unbuilt homes. Christine wants 5 bedrooms (the base plan has 4), and then there’s a mention of 6(!). I shared a bedroom with my younger sister for 12 years. Christine, your kids can too. Plus, there are enough teenagers that those rooms won’t be crowded for long.
Over to Janelle, who says “3 bedrooms is ok”. So she’s cramming all her kids into 2 bedrooms? What, do they have bunk beds up to the ceiling? Kody says they need at least 4, for when Logan comes home in the summer. Janelle is adamant that kids can share. Yes, they can, but in just 2 rooms? That’s not sharing, that’s a violation of the fire code. Although I think Janelle is considering the cost, I also think there’s a whole martyr thing going on, which is just sounattractive. No one’s asking her to add anything extra, just go with the base plan. Plus, Janelle’s little economies won’t amount to much, since Meri is expanding her fiefdom any way she can – read on!
3 feet. That’s all of this room I need for my 8 kids. You can have the rest, Christine.
