IMMEDIATELY we started noticing Jared actually caring for Tommy when he hadn’t before. She started taking about needing “mom time” and taking care of herself after it seemed that Jared expected her to spend time with the kids.
People have been quick to defend her lately, but will demonize Bonnie for the exact same things. These sisters are more or less the same. One big difference is that Jared picks up A LOT of the slack in that house and he knows it, whereas Joel still seems to think Bonnie can handle the house and kids and is always off doing something. If you follow Ellie on the IG stories, she sleeps all day, has the kids in bed by 6:30 and then happily sits in bed watching tv and eating treats all night. No kidding she’s dropping weight given that she still seems to eat just the one real meal. The boys have breakfast without her, so for all we know she isn’t having breakfast herself.... and “dinner” has always been a late lunch/early supper meal.
She finds things to do to avoid spending time with her children, and lately it’s been organizing her photos (which she did after Cal to avoid Jackson).
Plus let’s not forget that the last time she had weight issues and started talking about them was when Bonnie was struggling trying to lose weight. Sorry, it isn’t a stretch to say there is a competition there, when we’ve seen it play out for years.
Good for her for taking care of herself, but this isn’t a person that fails to do that. ALL ELLIE DOES IS TAKE CARE OF HERSELF.
Just gonna drop this here. There’s a pattern we’ve seen before, and sorry, were going to see it again as soon as she gets pregnant. It’s eerie how similar the vlogs post-Cal are to the ones today.

I 100% agree that she will be pregnant right away, that has always been her plan.
However there is a difference between taking care of yourself and just being self centered. I don't think Ellie spends any time taking care of herself, she just spends time by herself. If she was taking care of herself she would be eating healthy, working out, working on her mental health, etc. Ellie spends time lounging and pampering herself, that's not really taking care of herself IMO.
So if she is actually cutting back on breastfeeding to better her physical and mental health then I will absolutely give her credit for that.
