How Chelsea manages to care for an entire menagerie of animals, and her daughter, and her job and filming and deal with Adam and the court situation is nothing short of miraculous. This week it seems her giant dog has had puppies! Adam posted an inappropriate photo of Aubree the day before they head to court for a child support hearing.
Things are perfect except of a minor incident when Cole appeared to try to play good cop when Aubree was refusing to mind Chelsea.
Javi is trying to spend as much time with his family before his deployment as possible so he went to Isaac’s school to have lunch with him. He took of photo of their lunch date and shared it with Kailyn. It looks like he went straight from bed to school in his pajamas with no hair brushing or anything. Also I am concerned about Javi’s report that he was taking a lot of food at school. That’s usually a bad sign with young school kids.
It’s almost like Jo has postpartum depression. He’s gained weight, he is dressing sloppy. Isaac is not being cared for as well as he was. He is missing Isaac’s events at school. This is not the Jo we used to know. I get he has a new baby and that is stressful But is he even working? It seems like all of these people have gotten a big chunk of MTV money and are too irresponsible to handle it. The girls seem to by boobs and drugs. Joe is either just opting to do nothing, or drinking or something. One of his scenes ended with a cartoon of a rain cloud over his head. I guess it is just depression. Jo and Kailyn (and Javi) have a big blow up over the hygiene issues with Isaac. It’s odd because they had been getting along well. Something is wrong with Jo.
Jenelle is still mad at bun’s daddy for cutting his hair on the rare occasion she remembers bun. Mostly it seems she’s been down to da jail to pick up an new baby daddy. She found one named David and he comes with an 8 year old girl. So how old is he? And how old are these mothers now anyway? Janelle says David is a man and he’s also “so innocent.” Janelle is such a good judge of character, I’m sure he is a lovely felon.
Jenelle and David take Jace, Bun and David’s girl to buy a Christmas tree. They make out while driving down the road with the kids in the car. They are both so excited that their kids get along. They met five minutes ago and seem to be planning for their twilight years. They are in love.
Jenelle takes the new guy to meet Barb. She is very polite and invites everyone including David and his daughter to Ashville for Christmas at Jenelle’s brother’s house. After a bit of whining Jenelle’s agrees to go. But I don’t believe Barb will get off that easily. I was right. As soon as these two get in the car the both start bitching about having to go to Asheville. David, who has been on the scene for six minutes, is now an expert saying that Jenelle needs to get custody of Jace. Didn’t take long for him to show is true colors.
I love that the girls have journals and writing utensils every time I see them. That is super good therapy for them and something I used in my elementary classroom. Whenever they were not feeling like participating in the lesson they could journal (within reason, the rarely if ever abused it) and they always grabbed it when they were finished with an assignment. It amazing the things they would write and draw in there. It was used more than once in support of a DFCS referral. I’m sure Grace would be writing I don’t trust my mother and drawing Leah passed out on the couch. Just coloring can be a coping mechanism for them. Even though her attorney hasn’t told Leah that she lost custody yet, she could tell at the drop off something was wrong. She knows she has lost the girls.
Sure enough the next day she meets with lawyer to get the news. She didn’t have the big reaction I expected. I would feel better if she were never allowed to drive with the girls in the car. But I suppose the judge would have to have more proof of drug use to do that.
