Daddy’s got pennies and Mommy’s got none!? Yeah, pretty much.
I looked the actual lyrics up for this one (which I am NOT posting here), and I was floored. To be honest, I was expecting some sexist crap from the days when men went to work and women stayed home to take care of the kids… oh wait, that sounds like my life! Instead, I found some profoundly racist rhetoric, which, as I said before, I don’t even want to post on my blog, feel free to Google these yourselves, if you want.
Before people get TOO offended by these lyrics, keep in mind the way things were back when this was written (or re-written). Women never went to work, they were home with the children. Over time, we decided to change the way things were, though I’m sure money had a little to do with it, and both parents went to work. Now, it might just be me, but I feel like moms are starting to stay home again. It could also be because I stay home, so I see more moms home than I would have noticed before, but I definitely feel like more moms are staying with the kids. Maybe because daycare/preschool is so effin expensive, who knows?
Now that THAT’S out of the way….
I’ve been kind of absent the last few weeks, and it’s because I had a little bit going on, then a LOT going on. I’m on the Jersey Shore, and with Superstorm Sandy, I’ve been kind of busy.
I’m gonna try to keep up with this, but I made no promises. I have been shying away from the computer and getting some more cuddle time in with the kids as well as some crap done around the house.
