S09.E09: The Longest Labor 2018.03.11

Yes indeed.  Wasn't that part of Robyn's credit card debt, and she made up some bullshit story about having to buy her jeans there "because no other store sells jeans that fit my long beautiful legs?" 

 

I thought her problem was in finding pajama bottoms that were long enough . . . VS was the only place that carried them.  To which I can only respond, "If you are a poor single mother, and your pj bottoms are too short, WEAR SOCKS."

You may be right.  I somehow thought it was jeans.  I have never gone to my local store at the area mall.  I'm sure it's not cheap.

Nothing but the best for our Robyn.

A word of experience about VS.  I was looking for a nice nightie for our 50th wedding anniversary a few years ago.  I went into two different VS stores at two different malls.  I am old, have gray hair, am a little pudgy (but not morbidly obese).  I could not get a salesperson to acknowledge my existence, even though I was the only customer in the store and there were salespeople wandering around (and busily ignoring me).  So I took my credit card (with a large limit) to another store where I could actually get waited on.  And I wrote a note to VS headquarters and got an apology.  But I haven't been back in one since.  Maybe someday when I'm bored, I'll meander into one to see if they've changed.

Did you ever read the Robyn Rant she put out there when using the facilities at a Target or some such store and the toilet seat wasn't up to her standards. 

So I guess Robyn hasn't ever used the restroom at Janelle's house?

Good to know.  I'm not quite 50 years married, but it's pretty close!

LOL, yes, wasn't Janelle's bathroom clutter off-putting?  I wonder if Robyn cleans her 3-something facilities, or if she delegates that to Mindi?

Speaking of Mindi, does anyone but me wonder if they're including her as a bridesmaid in every wedding, to get the male attendants to notice her?  Surely there's got to be some reason why both Madison and Mykelti used her instead of their own sisters?

Are these good ratings?

And speaking of Mykelti, I'm already picturing the (puke-inducing) moment if she and FT decide to ever reproduce. Magazine/birth story rights being sold to the highest bidder, baby piñatas in the bathroom, where there will already be a street taco stand, with 10 tacos per spectator, and any other tacky Mexican thing FT will insist on throwing in there.

And a mariachi band in the corner of the bathroom during the delivery.  Baby must hear Mexican music at the moment of birth.  None of that dull white people stuff.

The way Tony looked when Maddie's birthing clips were shown at the Tell All, I think that Tony and Mykelti will have a hospital birth.  Tony is going to need lots and lots of drugs to get through it!

I hope that they would spare us the sight of FT engaging in skin to skin bonding with newborn.

I couldn't figure out what the deal was with the lack of clothes in the bedroom scene. Thank you for the info.  It still seems strange to me though.

I first heard of this about 30 years ago.  It seems to make little difference in closeness to father, millions of babies were born back in the day and fathers only viewed them through nursery glass windows for the first 5-7 days until they came home from hospital.

That was my first thought, too.  How on earth has the population grown for centuries without audiences in the birthing room, skin-to-skin bonding with fathers, grandfathers giving instructions to fathers ("Get down here, and hold your hands like this.  The baby will be more slippery than you expect."), giving birth/laboring in bathtubs?

I'm all for progress and couples bonding with the baby, but I think a lot of this birthing stuff is bull. I don't think it would make one bit of difference to the baby if Dad has his shirt on or off, and it shouldn't make any difference to the father either.

Please let that be true. I really don't have the intestinal fortitude to see a shirtless FT without having a bucket close by, and I know I'm not alone here.
