My Kid Just Out Me'd Me...

...and I couldn't be prouder.  Long story short she's watching the She-Ra remake to which I scoff.  She was complaining about one or two character flaws to which I responded, "This is why I hate remakes."  So she continued on and ended with, "But the current animation is much better than your old 80's version."

 

Needless to say, that stung and I told her she was blasphemous and that nothing could beat old school 80's animation.  I also reminded her that I raised her on 80's music, movies tv, etc., so the 80's is where she got her good taste.

 

Her response, "We have better technology now and therefore this new animation is better."

 

The standard smart-ass response to anything in this family is, "Your face is _____" fill in the blank.  So of course I say, "Your face is better."

 

And her priceless response  is, "I know it's better, because I'm the remake."

 

Can I even be mad that I raised her to be a bigger smart ass than me, and it seems as if I'm doing my job a little too well?!

Good Night Baby Animals teaches us what an animal does in six different stories. Sleep is important for a baby and baby animals. This is true for hamans as well. This book show use though the baby animals what they do during there day.

They explore and what they need to rest as well when the time is right. The author does a good job doing this and showing children and teaching children that sleep and rest is important to all including animals.

The pictures are colorful. They are done wonderfully. They also can tell the story for young children. Parents should have this for their young children to learn about animals and rest.

A Hand to Hold, Grace Given
Amish Fiction: A Hand to Hold: The Good ... Amish Fiction: A Hand to Hold: The Good Samaritan (Amish Parables Book 1) - Grace Given,Pure Read

This was an interesting take on the Good Samaritan . I voluntarily chose to review this and I've given it a 4.5* rating. This is also book 9 of the Amish Christmas Books set. I must say that the guys were very open to try things. Is this a guy thing? Anyway, nice ending.

Good and Mad
Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger - Rebecca Traister

"Anger is an energy."

 

--John Lydon

 

"If you're not angry, you're not paying attention."

 

--Unknown

 

As Rebecca Traister points out in this book,  women are constantly discouraged from experiencing or expressing anger.  It's unattractive; it's not received well.  Female politicians who dare express anger are chided and/or ridiculed, while their male counterparts are lauded when they do so.  Women are told anger is unhealthy; it needs to be pushed down, or it needs to be sublimated.

 

But as Traister demonstrates, throughout history, women's righteous anger, when channeled into political action and organizing, has effected real change.  And many women who had never considering activism or politics have been mobilized by the excesses of the Trump regime, as well as systemic abuses of male power that have been exposed (so to speak) following the Harvey Weinstein revelations.  In 2018, women have run for political office in record numbers.

 

Traister encourages women not to suppress the anger, not to revert to silence and comfort, but to continue so that the current "moment" continues to become an ongoing movement.

 

This is an important book.  Angry women should read it for reassurance that they are not crazy; that they can use their anger in productive and healthy ways.  Women who are not angry should read it to understand why other women ARE angry and to consider why they themselves are not.  Men should read it to understand why women are angry and should not be talked out of it.  And if many of them can become allies, that would be great, too.
