I'm also pretty sure that my parents and grandparents- if we didn't behave, would leave. We'd go home, Fun Thing Over. They'd also plan that we'd have eaten and rested. (My gran would also pull us aside and put the fear of God into us once as a final warning). It seems like now it's either selfish people who let their kids run amok/throw a phone at their kids to shut them up so mommy can keep shopping, or it's people who bring 5 bags of snacks/toys everywhere they go and junior doesn't learn they need to sometimes behave and sit quietly.
(I know all this makes me sound ancient and crabby. I'm 36 with 2 kids, and they aren't perfect.)
In Shauna's case, it's a combo of Can't Tweet, Scapegoat is little, bored, and ill-dressed, and Wunderkind wants to stay and twirl.

I have mixed feelings about it. When my little one was a toddler he used to pretend to read, open my books and say words while turning the pages, or walk with a book open in front of him and his  little head scanning back and forth as if he were reading each line, turning pages sometimes. I got a huge kick out of it & it was the one sure fire way to calm him down when he was getting antsy.  Anyway so when he would get super melt-down fussy in certain public scenarios I would hand him a paperback and he'd walk next to me, book in front of his face, two hands holding it up, head scanning back and forth, sometimes laugh like he'd gotten to a funny part and I'd grab his hood or shoulders and kind of steer him. People would compliment me constantly about how awesome my (just recently insanely melting down) kid was, because the way I was distracting him was socially approved and mimicked an intellectual act. I personally hate repetitive noises, so I forbade video games based totally on my own auditory comfort level, but thinking about it I"m not sure that the fake reading and otherwise total obliviousness to his surroundings was completely different than any other kind of immersion in make believe for distraction.

^ that's awesome!
OT but I think the phone/screen thing varies by kid and by parent. My 10yo can play for 10 minutes or an hour (whatever allotted), walk away and be fine. Still can play on her own, use her imagination. My 13yo can never have enough, and becomes belligerent with tech use. More selfish, mean, lacks imagination. It's scary to watch.
Shauna is so glued to her screen, I'm sure the kids think that's normal. And if they don't already, they're likely to resent the hypocrisy soon- we've had to model screen restraint accordingly.

Did she come up with President Elect Putz? I haven't seen that anywhere else, but then I'm not on Twitter.

New recipe on Feeding our People:

"glutenfreegirl
A plate of deviled eggs makes me happy. Hard-boiled eggs that cook up and peel easily makes this happiness attainable. This week on @feedingourpeople, we share our new favorite technique for making hard-boiled eggs you can count on. Then we have deviled eggs, five ways, and a simple salad from Italy with hard-boiled eggs and an anchovy vinaigrette. Let's start eating."

The arcane secrets of boiled chicken ovulations are yours for ten bucks a month!

How are deviled eggs a meal plan? To me, they're appetizers, snacks. Not something to adapt to five days worth of meals. What a strange choice (a very lazy one).

^^^Olives! I never thought of olives before. Black olives would be awesome. And jalapeno! Cream cheese on celery sticks with Mrs. Renfro's Sweet/Hot Jalapeno slices…

Yeah, I get what you're saying about her FOP features. She should be picking a big cut of meat and showing everyone how to get 5 meals for 4 adults–all different cuisines, such as Italian, Thai, Asian, Moroccan, Swedish–out of that one cut.

Or how to buy 2 or 3 cheap rotisserie chickens and get 20 servings of soup/salads/main courses and some stock to freeze. Or how to 4 meals/week plus 1 vegetarian meal and 1 meat-based meal for the freezer. You get the idea–actual meals plus something to put away. 

But hard-boiled eggs?  REALLY? She's not even showing her FOPpers 5 different ways to present eggs as a main course! (quiche, spaghetti ala carbonara, salade lyonnaise…) She's just showing them how to eat boiled eggs every day. 

Jesus. I am only a home cook and I have better ideas in 5 minutes than she does in decades of living (wallowing) in food.  

The sheer laziness, coupled with the greedy hands, always grasping, makes me want to smack her.

Now I need to go try out that celery/cream cheese/black olive/jalapeno combo. For breakfast.

Lots of people are intimidated by celery, but they don't have to be. This week on Fleecing Our People, we show how to make celery sticks three ways. This is real food for gnashing, crashing teeth and grateful gulping at island potlucks or Essene-immersion preschools. Join us, won't you?

Oh Shauna, this is just what I've been waiting for! My little man is allergic to wheat, corn, gums, dairy, soy, fructose, red food dye #12 and those little cocktail weiners. Normally I spoon-feed him PaleoGruel(TM) once a hour but I will try this soon!

FuschiaButterfly69
I can't wait to serve these at our next drum circle foot-washing, see us at peoriaspiritcollective.com. Excelsior and hail almighty Gor!

lmao

 

From her latest (chicken soup sponsored) blog post: "There’s a lousy cold surging through our little island. People are coughing and complaining, home sick for days. So far — knock on wood — we four have avoided it. It’s probably luck. Lots of sleep helps. We’re moving through the winter days, still going outside and exercising."

 

confused What kind of exercise is Shaun doing outside – apart from holding a yellow mitten once?

I think she was trying to start A Thing with that but no one cared because name calling isn't the best approach to true political discussion.
