Anna kind of annoyed me this episode. The problem with being holier than though on everything on a regular basis is that you have to come up with a justification for why you changed your stance, i.e., Anna and Josh now use disposable diapers.
When Anna made her statement about being a stay-at-home mom and other women working/going to school, I could only think one thing. At least if the other women decide to later stay-at-home and homeschool, their kids are likely to get a better education than what Anna would be able to provide, which I am guessing is the equivalent to an eight grade education.
I don't understand why Michelle needed to take James with her and Josie to see the doctor. There is always a buddy taken along for every appointment. I didn't realize that visits to the doctor for one child was a two person job. I wonder how parents of single children do it.
Did you notice Anna's Coach diaper bag? I'd like to see what kind of stroller she was using, too.
Kudos to Anna though, for being able to handle two babies on her own in public. Not sure if frozen green beans straight from a food meal is fresher or healthier than jarred baby food, but it has to taste better due to the salt content, if nothing else. I do think Anna finished homeschool high school and has some sort of two year degree or started one in early child development?
Having a buddy at the doctor makes it easier for someone to hold and entertain the kid. It also gives some "almost individual" time. Josie was probably crying because she didn't want a shot AND because she wanted comfort from her Buddy, not that woman with the glassy-eyed smile and long hair. I did notice that when the kids went to the dentist, two of the sisters held the tiny kids, while Michelle walked behind them.
