Sturm und Mom

The Storm & Stress (& Joy) of Motherhood

Good Thing We Don’t Worship Our Ancestors

My Great-Aunt in Saskatchewan sent me a 100 year old picture of my Great-Grandfather.  I reverently showed it to my kids.

“Look!”  I said with awe in my voice.  “This is your Great-Great-Grandfather.  He was born in 1875.”

All was silent for 30 seconds, and then they erupted into giggles.

“He looks like Alfred the Butler from Batman!”
