    WWII in Color binge sesh

    My kid has been watching that a lot lately... He's learned so much and has told me many things I never knew...

    Like how D-day actually took place on Rommels birthday... While most kids his age are playing with Japanimation toys, he's renacting the battle of Iwo Jima with little green army man...

    It's awesome lol

    My son woke me up late one night this week to tell me he had to give a presentation the next morning and he forgot about it. We got up at 5 the next morning to work on it. It was about Jewish ghettos, and I was absolutely enthralled. As much as I get into wwii history, I had never heard of the ghettos. I was wishing we had more time to dig into it 😅

    @Hrichts

    Here 'ya go....

    imho - essential reading:

    You know... As much as I encourage him learning about ww2 and the battles / military history... I've explained a little bit to him about the holocaust but usually steer him away from this aspect... Some history is just too dark...

    He'll learn about that when he's a little older...

    Right now his thing is the Pacific Theater... He's turning into a total history nerd like me 🤓

    I have a first edition of this:

    51WZCGRQxkL._SL500_.jpg


    Mine has some very personal family notes written inside of the front cover.

    Where he went, the islands, the battles, etc. etc. (Heavy, Heavy Stuff.)

    In regards to this from your post: "Some history is just too dark... "

    For adults, I disagree. Although you're correct, he can learn about that later. It's too much to wrap your head around when you're just a kid. People think evil hides in the shadows; I think the opposite is true, it's out there in full view. Sometimes it's just so horrible, people prefer to look away.

    We visited Dachau a couple of years ago.
    It's a very dark place.

    Baking bacon. Thawing pulled meat to make beef and noodles with. Soaking dried shiitake mushrooms for hot and sour soup later. Bringing cream cheese to room temperature so I can make quichecakes. (One ham and broccoli and swiss, one bacon and spinach and chipotle cheddar.) Soaking beans to make baked beans with tomorrow. Will very soon be putting swiss steak in the crockpot. Thawing a smoked sausage to go in a pan with fried potatoes and onions.

    (Today is precooking day. I not only have to precook for us but am making food for my inlaws, because my mother in law had back surgery three weeks ago and father in law is pretty occupied helping her. He eats a lot of meat and potatoes stuff, so I'll cook him what he likes.)

    That's freaking bad *kitten* Man!

    The other day he started telling me how Guadalcanal was the bloodiest war in the pacific and how disadvantaged the US was because of the low tide around the islands...

    It's crazy what sticks with them...

    But I agree, no part of history is too dark to study... But for an 8yr old, yeah... The holocaust might break what innocents he has left before I'm ready 😂...

    I found that protein bar. Sure did.

    Just say no to spending time with uninspiring, critical, or negative people who drag you down. Time is precious -- choose a small circle of people who will energize you and challenge you to be better. Jim Collins

    That's what you are. <3

    Dying of exhaustion and wondering how I will make it five more hours. Skeleton crew and people calling out has us running behind. Plus no access to the equipment needed to do the job. 🤷🏻‍♀️
