Jacqueline thinks Ashley could try a little harder with her art and Teresa could try a little harder with Melissa.

Responsibility and time management are learned skills. Ashley will learn that there are always consequences for her choices and the actions she takes. Her own experiences are the best way for someone like Ashley to learn, since she won't listen and learn from anyone else's. My dad was right when he said, "Life is a deadline, get used to it!" Everything has a time limit, including life itself. Like Nike says, "Just do it!" Don't waste precious time. Don't be tardy for the party. Whatever Ashley does in the future, I hope she puts her whole soul into it. She will most definitely succeed, but unfortunately right now she has the talent without the ambition. I have no doubt that she will be incredible at whatever she chooses to put her focus on. I do have faith in my daughter. I'm just tired right now of fighting for her. It's her turn to fight for herself. Thank you, Lauren, for giving Ashley another shot with your T-shirts. Back to the drawing board, Ashley! Let's wait and see what she comes up with next. Come on, Ashley! We all have faith in you. You can do this! Show everyone what you've got! 

Let's get on with that Gorga/Guidice play date at Melissa's house. I found the getting ready and waiting period before the play date scene extremely relatable. How many times have you tried to get your little ones up, fed, showered, dressed, and ready to get out the door, only to have them fight you or their siblings every step of the way? Little girls are the worst when it comes to wardrobe. They have very strong opinions on what they will, won't, or want to wear in that moment. That's where the uniforms in private schools come in handy. (Or even Teresa's suggestion of a boarding school!) 

I have to say though, I LOVE rockstar Milania! Those boots were rockin’! That vision had me cracking up for a while. That girl has a lot of personality! She always makes me laugh. I like how Joe (the old troll) told her he was going to put her out in the snow head first to freeze her mouth so she can't talk. I'm going to try that on someone.
