We're reading the Little House series with Eric...he loves it. But it's funny reading it this time around. As a child, I liked how it was based on a true story, and the dynamic between the sisters. This time, I'm mostly struck by Pa as superman. He can whip up a table, bedstead or log cabin at a moment's notice. Once he carries a tin stove home from "town" and comments, "Thank God it was only three miles!" I explained to Eric that three miles is the equivalent of sixty city blocks. D's cousin said, "Pa is an alpha male, like Putin." (But a lot nicer.)
