    I like Chip and Joanna HOWEVER I have a feeling this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I thought this book made them looknot good Whether it was Chip leaving his newborn baby home alone TWICE, tying said baby s car seat to his 4 wheeler, or buying multiple homes and forcing his wife family to move, supposedly without ever discussing it with her,or whether it was Joanna lamenting over her tiny yard that somehow could hold a...
