When Feminist Pride Turns To Feminist Shame

Ivy: Mum, did you know that in Italy a volcano burst and the fire buried the city and everybody died? I think it was before the dinosaurs and before animals first came out of the water and before fossils.

Me - Wow, you know a lot.

Ivy: Yes. My husband telled me everything.

  3. That is so funny!! Busy asked me today, on the topic of dinosaurs, if she was in my belly when there were dinosaurs I said no it was before that.
    She said before anyone in our town was born

    I said yep even before that and she said before even grandma was born???

  5. She's just getting it out of her system now.

    BTW I had wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog and to let you know that I had also written a response to Erica Jong's article. I like shouty feminists myself, just not this one. The link is: http://furrybees.blogspot.com/2010/11/mother-part-one.html if you're so inclined :-)
