Disney vs. 7 early fairytales 

The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up).  Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<

But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales.  Especially Bluebeard.  We need a Bluebeard adaptation.

Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself. 

The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away. 

"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this

We had to read The Book of Lost Things for school and it’s Grimm level crazy 

Not only that, you’re skipping out a really important thing: the brother’s grimm got those tales from WOMEN, women were the ones who would tell these tales orally and the brother’s grimm took them, altered them to be sexist and never gave the women credit. You can read Clever Maids the Secret History The Grimm Fairytales for more info

1. Long day of trying to break a biting habit.
2. Tired momma
3. Looking like daddy for a change
4. Derp face in shawl
5 & 6. Wooden straws are fun. Disclaimer gramma gave him the bag because it crinkles.
7. Hats and late nights with gramma
8. Long fevered nights
9. Tired daddy and fevered baby.
10. Cloth wipes!

I’m liking cloth wipes. He cut 2 teeth in a week of each other and then got the fever associated with teething a week later. His sleep has been so off

In other news, because he’s teething, the bottle he was getting from gramma has caused him to bite my nipples. Every way I learned to deal with that doesn’t work and I have bruised nipples. Butthead is getting wicked smart about that, medicine, and life. He’s going to take over the world. We’ve been dipping our toe in solid foods. He hasn’t met the milestones he needs for true solids, that pincer grasp feels long off. He does fine with broths but he truly rejects solid food. We got the mesh feeder to help with biting until his next teeth break, and got strawberries and peaches to go in there. Cloth diapering over the long weekends is going well.
Not a day goes by that I don’t marvel at him.
