Oh boy. It’s a simple life for me.
Jenelle meets up with some random Megan that she hasn’t seen in a long while and Jenelle quickly tells her about her issues with her meds, with Josh, and with her mom and Jace. She goes into her problems with Josh and how she can’t pinpoint it, but that he comes across at first like he’s a nice guy, but he’s actually just weird. I can pinpoint it… his IQ is under that magic number that makes him not responsible for certain things. Granted with this group, his IQ might be downright genius, but overall, the kid has the classic fetal alcohol syndrome eyes… we’ve all seen them… us mean people call them fish eyes… He has them. I’m sorry. #notsorry.
And then this morning, he wanted to curl my hair.
He curled mine too.
Jenelle takes Jace, alone, to a pumpkin patch. He seems so happy and they appear to have a good time. And all this feel-good sht makes me realize that it won’t be lasting long. They get back to Barb’s house and Mike is there and Jace shows off his little pumpkin to them both. Barb asks Jenelle how it went, and Jenelle gives them a rundown of the day. She sounds a little on edge, but so far so good.
Oh Jace. Cut and run!!!
Q: What color is this, Jace? A: Chelsea.
Let’s enjoy the moment before her meds stop working.
Jenelle decides that since she has just managed to keep Jace for TWO WHOLE HOURS all by herself, that this it the time for her to ask Barb about keeping Jace overnight. Barb wants to think long and hard about it, but Jenelle doesn’t understand. SHE HAD HIM FOR TWO HOURS. Barb continues to make sense while Jenelle continues to spiral down. I notice that the more they scream, the more destructive Jace gets (knocking things over), and I wish Mike would have picked him up and taken him out of the room. But instead, they all sit there until Jenelle storms out of the house without saying goodbye to Jace.
F-f-f-f….. wonder what she’s saying.
Eight episodes and I’m still looking sane.
Why did that stranger just storm out of our house again?
Barb, Mike and Jace show up at Jenelle and Josh’s house for a Family Fun Day. Unfortunately for them all, Jenelle has mixed some meds and doesn’t feel very good. Barb goes into her bedroom to ask her if she’s been drinking while taking the meds, but Jenelle screams that she hasn’t. Out back, Barb, Mike, Jace, and Josh try to figure out what to do. Barb still wants to go, but Josh doesn’t know if he should go or stay with Jenelle. He probably doesn’t know how to master Velcro either, so we can’t blame him. They all head back into Jenelle’s room to find out if she’s going to get up or no. Jenelle whines and screams that nobody understands what she’s going through and while Barb feels bad for Jace, Jenelle thinks they should all feel sorry for Jenelle. A couple things here… why does Jace need to be in the room during this talk? Why didn’t someone make a phone call to explain that Princess Jenelle McBipolar Pants wasn’t getting out of bed? And where is Josh’s mom, because I think Mike may have gone to visit her and her jugs in the third bedroom?
