Why I Should Have Been Born Like 60 Years Before I Was.

I was born in the wrong era.  For one thing, I would LOVE to wear the pretty dresses they used to wear.  Today's styles are fairly awful.  We were driving down the road last Saturday and my husband asked me if two people walking were girls.  There were dressed in normal jeans and tank tops and didn't look dyke-y or anything.  If girls wore skirts and dresses, you could easily tell if someone is male or female, and as androgyny REALLY bothers me, I would appreciate that.  Another shallow fashion related reason is the hair.  While it wasn't necessarily nicer looking, it was much more put together than today's bed head or flat ironed styles.

I also wish we were still proper.  I would love it if we still wore hats and gloves out of the house.  Wouldn't the atmosphere at Wal-Mart and WinCo be nicer if most of the customers were wearing dresses, hats and gloves?  Personally I can't even manage to be embarrassed to leave the house in my pajamas (Have I ever mentioned I am a bit of a hypocrite?).  And gentlemen!  Oh, if men opened doors and pulled out chairs.  If they rose when a woman entered the room or stood up.  It would be so awesome!  And best of all they treated ladies like ladies and refrained from passing gas in front of them!  But perhaps when females decided to invade the male dominated areas we lost the respect we used to get for being feminine.

Everything being closed on Sundays so everyone could go to church would be quite inconvenient, but quite wonderful at the same time.  Its kind of like the internet, cell phones and cable TV.  I would be annoyed by the change at first, but the world would be better off after we adjusted.

Also, I want women to go back home.  I LOVE my job and and VERY happy with it.  I would be SUPER sad if women all went home because they would take the babies with them, but who better to raise the babies then the mommies who love them?  I mean I am a close second, but I can't be selfish!  I would probably get pretty bored if the babies, TV and internet were all gone, and I might actually have to cook and clean...  But I STRONGLY feel that I would have my own babies if I were born in a time when there was less chemical build-up and processed food.  I'd still do my housewife duties though.  (Honestly I clean pretty much everyday and I cook sometimes.  I should cook more but Michael and I have some pretty conflicting ideas of what good food is.)

I have thought of a downside to my cultural revolution/mass time travel plan:  I would have to have my husband's last name and forever be getting phone calls and junk mail in Spanish (did they do phone calls and junk mail in Spanish 50 years ago?  Cause if they didn't I wouldn't really care about the name thing.), which I would hate.  However that is a price I would be willing to pay for a proper life with traditional gender roles and a revived economy.


  1. Ironically I actually like the clothing for the "hair example". I think it's supposed to be jammies, but it's gorgeous.
    I do agree with you though. I miss... you know... VALUES!!!

Everything You (N)Ever Wanted to Know About "Mama Cloth"

Remember how I said I was a crazy hippie??  I believe I crossed the threshold from crunchy to crazy in February when I ordered some cloth menstrual pads.

I decided that it was ridiculous that I was putting all kinds of chemicals on -or even IN- a mucous membrane for at least 15% of my (non)child-bearing years!  Mucous membranes are absorbent and I don't really want to absorb extra chemicals for no good reason.  I have heard that the disposable kind are so irritating to your vaginal lining that most people bleed for a day or two less once they switch to reusable.  Since my period has a mind of its own, I highly doubt I will ever notice this...

So I decided to buy some of the reusable sort.  I thought about a Diva Cup, but didn't want to invest the $40 on something I might hate.  I knew that even if I didn't love pads I would still use them, at least sometimes.  The main problem I ran into was that they are FLIPPING EXPENSIVE!  I mean over the course of time they are much ch…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…

New Pampers Diapers - A Quick Review

I am a member of Influenster.  They give away awesome sample packs for companies and in return I review/promote them on various platforms.  The product I am about to discuss was given to me by Influenster and Pampers free of charge!

The new diapers are designed to fight "diaper sag" and have an absurd hashtag to go along with it (I am a firm non-believer in hashtags and prefer to call it the "pound sign") # sagtoswag.  I don't like the word swag either, so this campaign is really not selling the product to me if I am being completely honest (which I usually am).

Most diapers have all the weird absorbent material in one compartment, making it so they sag quite a bit when they are wet.  The new Pampers have three chambers so the liquid is more spread out and not saggy.

What did I think about them?  Well I think its a nice idea, because saggy diapers really look gross.  And it did work, but it looked weird in a different way.  Three areas were all sagging a little…
