Llife Lesson Ladies Can Learn From Little House on the Prairie
So, since Ben is away for the weekend, I’m left to my own devices…which for me, meant a 4 hour Little House on the Prairie marathon. It’s not that Ben wouldn’t let me watch it, or even watch it with me, but since he lets me choose what we watch 100% of the time, except Sundays 9-10PM (becaue Ax Men is on), everytime I pass Littine House on the Prairie when channel surfing, I scan right past it. One man can only take so much…you know what I mean?
Little House on the Prairie has special meaning to me. As a child my mom read the chapter books to me, and when I was old enough, I even read them myself. I also distinctly remember “playing” Little House on the Prairie. We would collect different berries and such store them inside the forts we made, and play school and help “built our house” and all sorts of other things. It was a lot more fun than it sounds…I swear. Anyways, this little house located on a prairie is a very wholesome place to be…and personally, I’m a fan.
As an “adult” (I use quotes because by age I guess I have to be an adult, but you’re only as old as you feel right?? and most of the time I feel like I’m about 16…whoopee!) watching The Little House on the Prairie, I can see that all women out there can really learn a lesson from Caroline Ingalls (the mother). She really has her ducks in a row. Episode after episode, while she is submissive and obedient to her husband, she secretly is getting everything she wants…the smart way. What do I mean by this? Oh, well that’s easy. She either starts a project without telling her hubby, and then tells him once it’s to the point where he’ll happy about what is happening, or she just tricks her husband into thinking that what she wants was HIS idea…it’s really a genius plan. Either way, she gets what she wants WHILE making her husband feel like he’s the ring leader. Everyone gets what they want.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I definitiely think that this manipulation of the “weaker species” is both smart and necessary for a long and happy relationship. Not one that I would ever implement in my own life though…never! Not me! ;) Oh, and girls (and guys if you’re man enough), if you wanted to catch up on some more tips like this, Little House on the Prairie play about 18 out of 24 hours on the Hallmark channel.
