cecily Posted December 18, 2011 Share Posted December 18, 2011 I have been thinking about Ma Ingalls - we've been listening to all of the Little House audio books - and wonder if she could have really been that good, that patient. On my blog post today I ask if Ma Ingalls ever just lost it. Sometimes, I do. When you listen (read) the books, it is as if she never raises her voice, never loses her calm, never has ENOUGH of all the hardship. Has anyone researched this topic and found that Laura whitewashed their lives? Left out the bits where Ma goes nuts? Or was she really that saintly? I love, love, love my kids and spend every minute with them. But I know that I would have taken a few hikes across the prairie if I were in Ma's shoes!
