Even in a Stevejovah-adjacent family such as Nathan's I'm sure any mention of magic or fairies talking toys or even having an attachment to a stuffed toy would be Strictly Forbidden. Remember this is the man who used white-out to cover up the line "life is but a dream" in the lyrics to Row Row your Boat.  So, no Velveteen Rabbit for the Max Grands!

But don't some of the books Teri brings over to the grandkids to read have inanimate objects talking?  I remember being surprised that one of her books was about tractors or farm equipment, or similar,  who could talk.

Happy Easter FJ!

Here, some stats.  1/5th of the people in that table pic are wearing vests.  1/5th (a different 1/5th) are wearing massive-ass food catchers around their necks. Thus, Maxwells = 40% Bib-lical In-

OMG, Sarah bought her own car! Her OWN car! I feel like this is a huge step. I also feel like I have no idea where she would even go. Like, apart from that one trip to check out another town

If I were a parent and my child summitted that after reading a story, said child would have a long afternoon of question & answer. Why doesn't it have value? What would give it value? Do you really think the reader hasn't learned anything? Nothing? Really? Why? 

Then they'd have been set the assignment of an essay justifying their stance that it has no value, with examples. 

Seriously, those people fail at education. Fail.

I'm a parent and a teacher, and I agree:  These people make religious homeschooling sound like a very bad idea.  

Also:  I'm the proud mom of a daughter who just completed her MFA in Creative Writing and gave me as a mother's day gift her bound thesis ( a novel she's been working on for two years).  That gift made me cry and I am not a crier. We always took reading and writing seriously and allowed her to read anything she wanted.  When she was young we often read the same novels and talked about them and what we had learned.   She's a thinker and an analyzer, something the poor Maxwell kids will never be allowed to be.

Just in the summary posted above, I learned

-that mongooses attack cobras ferociously

Now you need this for whenever someone waves their Gadsden flag at you. (I'm thinking of sewing this up into a flag or banner that I can wave back with.)

I’m glad they did a Mother’s Day post for Teri. I think one year they didn’t do a post or it was more of an after thought. However, for Father’s Day their always a post. One year I think they celebrated Father’s Day twice because Anna & Mary were not going to be home on the actual day.

Is it just me or does Teri seem to be much more "at peace" these days. She seems almost relaxed in a lot of the photos. I wonder if the weight of homeschooling and raising kids has finally been lifted. I know Mary is in her twenties now; but maybe it has taken a few years for the relief to set in.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘

      It's Friday so yay!  But sweet Jesus I need it to be the end of the day already.  Crappy week and I'm so ready for it to be over.
