The Mister and I have a pretty set routine. After the kids go to bed, we watch TV while he reads the internet and I do crafty crap. It’s not terribly exciting, but it’s how we decompress at the end of the day. Lately I’ve noticed that Persephone has become a regular stop on his daily internet surf. I think it started in self defense, because I get really enthusiastic about things and I would attack him the minute he got home asking “Did you read my thing yet?” Now I think he does it just because he likes the site. Now he’s the one asking “Did you read ____ yet?” because sometimes we like talking about things other than work and kids.
I love the fact that we have male readers. They’re not hugely vocal about it, but they follow us on Facebook and comment occasionally, and I know Mr.B isn’t the only one out there telling his friends to check us out.
So, for all you guys who are brave enough to love clever, bookish feminists – Happy Valentine’s Day! We think you’re pretty neat.
I really wanted to have just one image here, to keep it simple, but I saw this and I couldn’t resist.
