I "prepare my children" daily. They're best with a little Montreal steak seasoning. Funny post. We've come a long way, baby! My teen daughter had big eyes when I told her women had only been allowed to vote in the US for 80 years.

This just shows how things have changed.
I've seen this before, there is one out about school teachers way back also.
I saw these years ago, nothing new, I never heard of a woman like this in real life.

Well, okay -- I admit I was raised this way. Women did all the cooking, cleaning, as well as worked in the fields along with their husbands. Men were served first, children second and women last. While the men napped after that huge meal we used to call "dinner", women cleaned up the kitchen and took care of the children. Golly gee, if only my grandma could see me now!! :!: :shock: :lol:

:D I would not have made it a month back in that time. :D I am all for my DH being the man of the house. He supports me in every way & I do what I can to make our home comfortable & inviting. We treat each other as equals. We are a team and work together very well. :wink:

I think that got 'doctored' a little bit - I've seen it before and I think somebody added a few - mainly the ones about letting him run around all night, or going out without you... etc. Probably added as somebody's idea of a huge joke.

My mother was a new wife at the time that was published. It didn't work that way in our house as we were growing up. My mom and dad were equal partners.

Makes you realize why so many women entered convents in those days.
