    For all you feminists out there, a quote to get your heart pumping:

    “I’m just so thankful that my husband let me stay home and home school,” Rebecca Allford said. “As I went along, I realized how important it was for parents who love their kids to have all this input and be in charge of their education and be able to put Christian values in there. I realized all that as I kept going.

    “I’m just so thankful I was able to do it.”

    Heh…it’s me who allows my husband in on the fun. Occasionally. When I feel like it. 🙂 J/K…we’ve definitely enjoyed agreement on at least this one thing.

    Why do you do this to me, Daryl? After all, I have to put up with the whining of the old feminists on the left and now this! 🙂

    Ugh. The sad thing is I hear young (17-24) women on the base talk about “asking” their husbands and “if it’s okay with him” all. the. time.

    For, like, little stuff. And stuff that doesn’t affect the husband at all.

    Which is why I cringe whenever I hear someone talk about how “passé” feminism is.

    Ugh, Lisa…I hate that. I mean…sure…if you’ve got your eye on a new car and it’d mean making the payments out of his paycheck, ask him. But I have a friend who has to call her husband to ask if she can take the kids to McD’s for lunch. And he has been known to tell her no…not a wise expenditure for that week. Also, it’s 3 kids…it’s not like she’s inviting the whole neighborhood.

    My dad was the ultimate courtly conservative southern gentleman. My mother was a force in her own right.

    I never heard my mother say that we’d have to ask dad for something, but they made a great team. And he used to gently defer to her in little ways, like if you’d compliment his appearamce, he’d smile and say “outfit by Suzi” or when they’d be traveling or at a wedding and you’d see them dancing (the Myrtle Beach shag mostly) and you’d be surprised to see them look so great together and say so, , he’d demur with oh, I just stand there and she makes us both look good.

    Not sure why this came to mind but I guess it does really affect kids, how they see their parents relating to each other as “male” and “female.”.
