It would be nice to watch Teen Mom 2 and be surprised by Jenelle Evans. Unfortunately season 4 looks like more of the same. This week we got to see a lot more of Kieffer, Jenelle once again smoking weed, and the story behind Jenelle's breast implants.
So what didn't we see? Much of little Jace. The teen mom spent most of tonight's episode prioritizing everything but her son.

At one point, she even flat-out says:
I still haven't seen Jace because I've been so busy working and hanging out with Kieffer.
Working is a good thing -- Jenelle got a job selling advertising online. But did she really just tell the world that she put a guy ahead of her kid?
It gets worse. Now that she's off probation and doesn't have to worry about random drug testing, Jenelle is smoking weed ... again. She has time to pick up a bong and get high, but not see her kid.
We also found out what she was doing with her money from her new job: Jenelle decided to get breast implants because she feels like a 12-year-old girl when she goes to the beach. Kieffer, in the five seconds I actually liked the guy, tries to tell her that she looks good just the way she is. But Jenelle is convinced bigger boobs will make her feel better about herself, so she heads to the plastic surgeon's office.
It isn't until AFTER she checks in with a doctor that she finally decides to go see her mom ... and ends up seeing her son while she's there. Of course, during the conversation, one of her biggest concerns is that her mom keep Jace away from her while she's recovering from surgery because she can't have the toddler touching her new boobs.
Mother of the year, right there!
More From The Stir: 'Teen Mom' Kailyn Lowry's Book Will Be a Painful Read
As for the other girls, some things never change! Kailyn is still tangling with Jo over custody, and Chelsea is still trying to put Adam behind her.
The South Dakota teen got back on birth control (hallelujah), but then her landlord dropped a bombshell on her that she has to move out. Trying to balance motherhood and school, the ultimatum from the landlord is too much for the teen mom to handle, and she breaks down in tears. The most bittersweet moment of the night goes to Chelsea's little girl, Aubree, who keeps telling her mom to "stop crying."
And then there's Leah who is still trying to figure out if she should go back to ex-husband Corey or try to make it work with Jeremy. Kudos to both of these guys for having a very adult discussion about their own feelings for the mother of twins. She is one lucky girl to have these guys in her life -- they act more grown-up than just about anyone on this show ... especially Jenelle!
What did you think of Jenelle's "parenting" tonight? Can you believe she was more concerned about the size of her boobs than she was about seeing her kid?
