Ch-ch-ch-changes

I've been thinking for some time about making this blog more anonymous and have finally decided to go ahead and do the work. Effective immediately, I will be going back and changing the girls names and my husband's name.

In honor of one of my very favorite families in children's literature, my family will now be known at the Quimby family. I will remain Thrift Store Mama, my husband will here fore be known as Mr. Quimby (or Mr. Q for short). My eldest daughter will be Beezus and my younger daughter will be Ramona. I am able to make this segue because Mrs. Quimby, given her abundance of common sense, was most likely a thrifty person. I'm sure there is some evidence that I could find that would substantiate this (particularly when Mr. Quimby lost his job) but you'll just have to take my word for it that it's a logical segue.

I'm gaining some new readers (yay!!!) and think that I may want to write about some more senisitive topics, but do not want to restrict access to my blog.

Any questions?

Ramona and Beezus! LOVE it!

Dude - makes total sense. In Ramona the Brave, Mrs. Quimby takes a part-time job, right? The year before Mr. Quimby loses his job, I believe.

I'm in the Little House gang with a friend from grade school and her sister. We have a gang symbol and all. I get to be Ma.

I heard a fantastic interview with Beverly Cleary once. It's probably archived on youtube or NPR somewhere. She was such an incredible children's author.

ok, looking forward to the stories of the Quimby family

I meant to finish my thought before - I'd be happy to be in a Ramona and Beezus gang as well. Membership requires knowing more than one should about these books, and of course, developing a sign.

Do you care if in my head I see you as Mayor Quimby from Springfield?

Darn you Stimey - Now everybody else is going to have that in their head too !!! (Although we do have the same body type and we both like to talk a lot ... !!!)
