Side note: My 4-year-old is sitting next to me while I watch and write this recap. When I paused the show, he goes, “Next time on Teen Mom…” If children and their behavior aren’t indicative of your habits, I don’t know what is.
Maci calls Ryan and they argue about preschool. This guy who didn’t want anything to do with preschool is annoyed to find out that Maci is taking Bentley to school at 3PM when it starts at 7AM, because she wants to spend time with him before he goes to visit Ryan. Neither one of them make any sense. This show is a perfect example of the kind of people I can’t stand to be around.
Maci makes good points about what failures of parents Ryan’s mom and dad are, but it’s hard to feel for her. She right, don’t get me wrong. But she has no room to talk just yet. It seems that Jen takes off work when Ryan has Bentley, despite the fact that Ryan has no job and doesn’t go to school. These kids are going to be such losers when those MTV checks stop coming in.
Ryan is late picking up Bentley, so Maci and Kyle have to get him and take him home. I guess he got stuck at work…oh wait. Kyle’s not wearing his seatbelt, which just chaps my ass so bad. He might have on the lap part and be tucking the chest part under his arm, but still. It’s 2012 – don’t you get it yet?
Bentley gives all of his teachers a huge hug before leaving. I’m so happy for Bentley and I hope that Maci can take that the right way. Bentley’s really sad that his daddy didn’t show up. Don’t be too sad, Benny. You’re dad’s a douche canoe anyway.
April comes over to Cate’s to grill her about getting on board with school. They discuss financial aid. Wha wha whaaat? These kids paychecks are far fatter than any paycheck I’ve ever had written to myself or my husband. Why the hell should she qualify for financial aid? Those MTV checks are income, baby. Sell the Caddy, buy a Focus, and pay for your school yourself. Cate doesn’t know if she wants to be a pregnancy counselor or a teacher and April really just wants her to get signed up for classes. How strange of April to be all sensible.
At Gary’s, Amber’s mom is there to discuss picking up Amber. Gary’s hoping that Amber doesn’t expect him to be a source of support – don’t worry, I think she’s smarter than that. I hope. He’s such a useless tub of lard.
May I just say that I love who Proactive is a sponsor of this show. You’d think they’d supply Maci with some. She could be quite a success story.
Farrah and Sophia drop Debra off at the airport and Farrah barely hugs her. That makes me so sad. I know I have a relationship with my mom that a lot of adult daughters don’t, but you’d like there’d be some big hugs there when your mom is going to be gone for a while across the country. She gets a text from Daniel, asking her to hang out. Poor, unsuspecting Daniel.
