We're the care takers and we step up and do what needs doing when it comes up whether it's chopping wood for the fireplace or cuffing someone on the ear when they're being an idiot. A woman will be the home keeper AND work often times. And housewives whose husband's leave generally go out and get a job to take over and do both. Very few men do the same thing. They tend to hire a housekeeper, or nanny, or if married, just be the worker and have to be nagged at to help out around the house. It's changing slowly. More men are carrying both burdens, but those are the special ones. I still hear a lot of women griping about the fact that both they and their partner work but he doesn't do much around the house or has to be nagged to do it which is burdensome in itself. No one wants to feel like a mother to their partner and that's how you end up feeling when you do EVERYTHING or have to nag at them to help. I mean you're both adults, both know what needs doing, and a woman will automatically do it, while a good portion of men won't? What's up with that? Or perhaps it's just the women I know who land with these types of men. I've been told by a psychologist that strong women attract weak men, because those weak men are attracted to what they want to be . . .strong. AND that those weak men will try to appear strong because they know that's what the female wants, someone as strong as her. So it could be this problem is only with the Merry's I know, lol.

No.. *sigh*... was with this Merry too. He was a decision maker & I'd been on my own for so long it was so nice to be 'looked after' (lol - Once I got my head around it).. then I don't know what happened.. but I am on my own again.. ah well - Such Is Life.

lol... Have no idea what I did t my response!!

Hugs Ms Kitty. Relationships are hard. Especially nowadays with roles so fluid. I think it was probably easier during the "Wait til your father gets home" phase. Everyone had a place and knew what was expected.

Hey Sue, I'll post your choice on Wednesday at the same time I do the Argeneau character thread. I think you made a very interesting choice! :D

True.. *sigh* Now it seems I'm everything. I just hope that I'm enough to fill the role for my Girls.

I asked Sue to choose our next Historical character, and here is her reply: "As you asked, here is my suggestion for the next Hysterical Historical Character of the Week. I know he is not a central character, but my favorite character is from the book The Hellion and the Highlander. He is Laddie, the illegitimate son of Brodie Stewart and the maid, Belle."

I think Sue made a very interesting choice for us! He's a charmer...so this week, we celebrate our first child character, and the role he plays in The Hellion and The Highlander. It will also be interesting to discuss a side character who, as we never know with Lynsay, may grow up to be a main character someday. I hope you have all had the chance to read the new Scottish trilogy by now, and are ready to talk about...Laddie :D

Thanks, Wren!

I absolutely loved this character. I was a little hesitant at first, after being fooled by Godfrey in the prior book, but Laddie quickly won my heart when he stood up to his "father" to protect Averill with a shield over the head. His fear and resignation that Kade was going to kill him tore at me. But then his dogged determination to protect Averill led to one of the funniest scenes in the book. While Averill, Will and the soldiers were out gathering rushes and looking for the weed for her to make the tincture and Averill had to relieve herself and Laddie didn't want to leave her alone. I just loved his worried remarks to Will that she wasn't talking was hilarious. The whole scene made me laugh so hard, I needed to relieve myself!

I'd love to see in FUTURE books (hint, Lynsay!), that we get to see the development of this child and see him grown to manhood.

I totally agree, Sue...since Lynsay is sure to continue this Scottish series as we have asked her to so nicely...<insert sweet & innocent looks from Sue & wren>

Plenty of time, Sue...just thought I'd get her name out there to start the thread going again. Now you can think about it a little as you read the book. We don't do the featured character threads "by the week" anymore...easier for all of us if we fit it on our timeline instead! 8-)
