I asked my facebook readers which book they would like to see us read next and then I read through what seemed like endless amazon reviews but kept coming back to this one. Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture I am part way through the book and I want to find the author and thank her for such a wonderful , thought provoking book. My husband probably doesn’t as he he constantly woken from sleep by me so I can excitedly tell him a new revelation that the book as sparked. Apparently 1am is not a cool time to talk about parenting. I think it’s only fair since both our kids woke me often to nurse at 1am . I finally just told him to download the book to his Kindle because it’s such a great read.
We will have a live Facebook chat August 27th to discuss. This gives us lots of time to read and reflect. Don’t worry of you can’t make the live chat because the questions will be posted along with the discussion for all those who can’t be there “live”.
LOL – I always seem to want to have those deep meaningful conversations at early hours too – not very great when the hubby is falling asleep!
I don’t have a little girl (yet), but I think I’ll check this book out anyway – it looks like a very interesting read.
Has he ever fallen asleep mid deep discussion? Mine did I was angry at first but then just laughed.
Excellent idea… I may just have to go pick this up. My theory with my daughter has been I don’t mind girlie fashion and looking pretty… but I do mind the “princess” attitude. This reminds me though of an article I recently read about how to talk to girls… which we are all guilty of I think, and could be attributing to this phenomenon as well.
