Aren't you brave?

I was just reflecting that 'aren't you brave' is a phrase I have heard a few times in my life. It usually translates as 'aren't you stupid / misguided.' I heard it a lot when we were starting up Snowbooks, and I was surprised to frequently hear it again when I was planning a homebirth. Turns out both of those things gave me the best days of my life. I imagine I'll hear it when I start talking in earnest about homeschooling in a few years time. Have people ever used that phrase on you? I would be fascinated to hear the circumstances.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
