At our house spelling is a huge part of our week as each child has spelling words to learn. They get the words on Monday and take a spelling test on Friday. Yesterday I was yelling out spelling words to Will as I was making the bed. He spelled each word correctly. I went to the kitchen to congratulate him and found him standing next to the refrigerator looking at the
spelling list that was hanging on the fridge. Can you spell c-h-e-a-t-e-r?!
This morning I made a batch of one of my all-time favorite foods, monkey bread. And no, I don’t go through the trouble of making it from scratch
because Wal-Mart sells this is the freezer section and it’s just as good as home-made. Throw it in the microwave for two and a half minutes and you have the ultimate breakfast. This morning I decided to get dressed while it cooled. When I came back into the kitchen it was gone. Our cat Rose was in cahoots with our dog Charlie. She pushed it onto the floor and they both ate it. I was not a happy camper. The dog and cat eating my monkey bread makes me feel like a
A group of activists is upset about Lego’s new
line of characters that includes girls rather than the little square men. The activists don’t like the “tiny breasts or fancy hair” and claim the toys hypersexualizes girls. Say what? I couldn’t even find the definition of hypersexualizes in any online dictionary. What the hell is the problem with
these toys? We are girls and yes some of us have tiny breasts and fancy hair and don’t our children deserve the right to play with toys that look like they do?
Why does everything have to be gender-neutral these days? I want my daughter to be proud that she’s a girl, it is a part of who she is.
These toys are harmless compared to the damage that is done by trying to convince these kids that it doesn’t matter if they are a boy or a girl. It does matter. You are who you are. You get what you get and you don’t
throw a fit. Girls Scouts are for girls and Boy Scouts are for boys, why complicate matters like this? Life will be complicated enough when they grow up; can’t they have a fun filled childhood without the stress involved with trying to pretend that their gender doesn’t matter?
To make matters worse these activists have gotten over 55,000 signatures against LEGO for manufacturing these toys claiming the products they
make should not be gender specific. That’s bull-shit and the 55,000 people that signed this petition need to get a life. I am woman hear me ROAR and I will
raise my daughter to roar as well!
Have a wonderful day : )
