Lin Qing He transmigrated into the novel and became one of its cannon fodder. The novel’s background is non-viable-1960s, time of want to eat but nothing to eat and want to wear, nothing to wear. Although the lack of supplies and life was monotonous, this wasn’t what she was concerned about because she got a small personal interspatial space, which is stuffed with supplies, so temporarily no worries about basic needs.

What she is worried about, if she remembers correctly, her three so-called sons will become big villains in the future, and their upright and cold dad will end up in an indestructible end.

Lin Qing He looked at the three future villain sons, eldest who was only five years old, the second child was only three years old, and the third child was only one year old, and decided to give them half a big white bun first…

I don't know what my feelings are after reading this. I feel like I've raised many children. I feel happy when Zhou Kai, Zhou Xuan, and Zhou Gui slowly grow up and feel a little sad when they start having their own family, sometimes I think about how this feels like when my child gets married. And when at the end of the chapter I felt very sad, it was like I was dying along with Lin Qinghe and Zhou Qingbai, had to say goodbye to them. Sh*t im crying... more>> 😭😭😭 <<less

very slice of life. It's not for people who enjoy more realistic stories but the writing is good and the translator puts out releases quickly. I thought it was good.

Just finished speed reading this story. I'm amazed that some parts of it passed censorship, especially since a lot of the historical references are directly named rather than using vague euphemisms.

The general tone of the story is very much a slice of life, following MC and her family from year to year, all the way from raising three little buns on her own to getting them married off and starting to raise the grandchildren generation. The early parts when they're still living in the country feels a bit like Fields... more>> of Gold, in that it seems to be all about the food. But then I guess in that era, food is the only thing that gets people excited, lol. Later on, as the story setting transitions to the Capital, it's more about building up businesses.

The pacing of the story isn't too bad for a narrative that has to cover such a long period of time. There are some parts which dragged or wasn't as interesting in my personal opinion, but still managed to keep my interest to continue reading. What I like best are the characters, specifically the relationships and the interactions.

MC is very much a strong modern woman who is perfectly able to balance what she is and isn't willing to compromise with the reality of the times she's living in. She's not perfect, but she's oh so relatable. Her husband feels a lot like a supporting character than a co-star, and objectively speaking has some flaws, but still feels like very much a match made in heaven to the MC, and their fluff is adorable. The relationships between MC and her sons is both funny and enviable. <<less

I didn’t expect to like this story because usually stories that are this long tend to be draggy and filled with unnecessary twists but this story was really sweet. Besides the transmigration thing it was very realistic. There were many characters that were introduced because you end up following the lives of all three generations of the Zhou family but most of them had distinctive characteristics. There were some characters that were really annoying at times but you sort of understand why they’re the way they are? Like no one... more>> is cartoonishly evil or saintly good. There are people that are better than others but we see people change and grow as their lives progress. In the end, I cried when I finished the story because it felt like I had parted with long time friends.

The FL was great. She was fair, rational, and hardworking but not a Mary Sue. Best of all, even though she wasn’t a selfish person at the end of the day, she prioritized her own happiness first. She loved her husband but she wasn’t ever overly dependent on him. In fact, while it seemed like she called all the shots at home, the pair had an equal relationship because she did consider his opinions on big decisions. However, she never let his more annoying family members bully her or exploit their family for even a second. That being said, she never went out of her way to harm or scheme against anyone either. She was just content with making sure her family was happy and trouble free.

The ML was a solid husband. Although he was steadfast in his morals he was very supportive of the FL. While he had some moments in the beginning where he felt a little inferior to the FL because she was getting better and better and he was still a farmer, he never tries to get in her way. Instead, he just works harder to support her. My favourite thing about him is that he feels like a real guy. He’s not an overbearing CEO or a genius scholar. He’s stoic but not cold and standoffish and he communicates with the FL like a real person. He experiences jealousy but he always trusts the FL. He’s my ideal image of a husband tbh lol

The kids are great. They’re all distinctive and their characters don’t get shafted when the relationship between the ML and FL are solidified the way kids tend to be in other stories. In a 700 chapter story you really see them grow up in a realistic way.

A great slice of life for anyone with free time! <<less

Okay, I mtled this. First, the mtl is easy to understand. Second, the plot is really good. Its the kind of slice of life that will heal you after reading some dog blood story. Third, I really like the MC, she would let the people around her prosper. She doesnt let them work for her forever, she encourage them to fly on their own. She cultivate them. Thats what I like about her. I don not have a strong opinion about the ml. He's okay, I guess. The way the... more>> kids are portrayed is great. They really seem like kids. Unlike some stories that portray the kids as genius or sometimes they dont even seem like kids anymore. Its super long 701 chapters. But reading it is worth it. ☺ <<less

It was confusing at the staring about where the MC transmigrated. It was mentioned that MC transmigrated into a novel where her kids were the villain and her husband died when he was in 50’s or something.. The body she was wearing left the family with money and died in foreign land.

so what MC did after here transmigration was:

... more>>

- fatten up her kids

- fatten up her injured husband

- becoming from lazy mother to best mother in the village

- giving her family the best

-ripoff faces with her vampire maiden family except third brother

- buy food, spend money, find a way to make money

- family conflicts with second house because the second wife is jealous of MC

- let her cubs study

- study herself

- coming clean with husband about her space and her origins

- becoming a math teacher which made MC from lazy woman to best Woman in the village Teacher Lin

-giving college entrance examination and going to Benjing to study with her oldest son

- buying shops, making money and making more money

- getting pregnant again and giving birth to daughter (well I’m not there yet but that’s how it seems from how the story is going


There are some nosy people but that doesn’t affect our MC. For her, like is like and dislike is dislike. Oh, and MC and ML are all lovey Dovey even when they are in there late 30’s..

ML: what wife said is what I said.... <<less

Great slice of life transmigration, very relaxing. The protagonists has her cliche knowledge of the future and an even more cliche space but the way she lives her life, how she relates to the husband and children she inherited, and how she deals with the protagonists that were the downfall of her family is very refreshing. The best thing about this novel is the personal favorite interactions and generation gap. How she relates to her mother in law, and raising children with a mentality of someone from the 21st century... more>> vs how people raised children in the 60’s after an era of famine <<less

I love this novel especially since it is looong one and filled with 3 cute buns growing up into mature men.

The story is more focused on family of MC and their growth. It is truly filled with so much cuteness and warmth.

I personally enjoy the story especially the part when they were still in the village.

For sure you guys wont be disappointed reading this

To deep slice of life for me, if a writer goes that deep into the setting then I really expect more from a reincarnator. I mean, who would bring food instead of knowledge if you go to a poor place? Would you even stay in a country that will be extremely difficult to live in for the next 30 years? As for the girl she "replaced", the original failed at life but she had ambition and I just cant sneer and say that´s bad compared to the shovel of sh*t... more>> the writer crams down my mouth, "be happy with what you have, never strive to be happier". That´s not to say the novel doesn't have its great moments. I was never the targeted audience (being male) so take my review with a grain a salt. <<less

I really really love this story. I binged read the whole thing in 2-3 days. An amazing read. Love the character development. The growth of the sons is done really well. I love that she doesn't abuse her power that much in the storyline. Great story all around. One of the best transmigration stories I've read. Super slow slice of life but, I was never ever bored once while reading.

Thee best slice of life transmigration book I have ever come accross here are the things I liked the most:

1. There is a really character growth throughout the novel, inmost of the novel you can see the protagonist have progress in the age but the mentality remains the same however that's not the case here you really feel the changes thought the journey of their life.

2. The MC and ML are excellent and the way their relationship develops is very natural with good chemistry.

3. The story doesn't just revolve against... more>> main protagonist the side characters are very developed as well.

Overall it's a highly recommend you won't regret reading this. <<less

Currently I'd give this a 4.5. It's not exactly a 5 but for its genre it's up there. The first few chapters to me are kind of boring, but needed to establish the plot.
The protagonist is interesting in the way that she isn't overly intent on buttering people up or changing the general public's view on the former person. She's very "I mind my business, people can say whatever" and I like that. Too often (normally in ancient settings tbh) protagonist are overly bent on revenge or being a... more>> miraculous leader among humanity but this protagonist is content with staying mostly in her lane. In that way it makes a nice enjoyable slice of life novel.

The cooking parts are also interesting and not overly gratuitous.
as for the ml


So far (as of chapter 61) we haven't seen a whole lot of him, but I'm glad the plot is made so the former person only really interacted with him sparely, thus it helps you not feel too bad about the whole situation. Also the MC isn't overly willing to follow the "plot" and have relations with him. They're civil but she sets boundaries and though he doesn't really understand why he's not overly pushy. Which is great in a male lead. Too often ML force themselves onto the FL and it's not cute. Even if people think it's "assertive" it's not lol. I'm tired of reading novels where the FL is like "I let him have his way with me, bearing it". So yeah, he's a nice guy. I would say realistic even.


The main focus for me is the family relationship so not overly concern with the romance aspect, though it is nice and doesn't take away from the plot. The kids are cute and not brats, I think they're written nicely. Sometimes these novels make a kid like 8 years old act like they're barely cognisant and purely there for fluff and not much else but these kids have personality and I feel add a lot to the plot. Because I skimmed the first few chapters not too sure how her little space portal works a but it's a cool aspect and in this type of novel it's not really important to know all the details. Plus it doesn't make her overly powerful, it's just a nice little thing she had. <<less

(understandable, but names are very confusing as they are all nicknames, so you'd have to keep this in mind going forward as to not get confuse)

TRANSLATION is done so well



Focus on:

    • Reality. The novel's background setting is relying on the history of China from the 60's onwards.
    • Family Love and Childcare.
    • Business Building

The kids are so cute and lovable when they were just little imps around MC

MC and ML is not OP. However, MC uses her knowledge of the present to elevate their lives. Not super magical knowledge out of nothing that seems to make all problems disappear, though. It was more like, how to negotiate business, what to focus more on establishing business, investing on estates, relearning english, etc.

Her space, as time goes on slowly fades away in the setting, which was good.

ML is very supportive. Very normal for me.

Relatives some are okay, some bearable, some are 'ugh'.

I have to be honest, that the glimpse of the life of the 3rd child at the near end chapter, idont quite like. Especially, because the 3rd son, is whom I like him the most at the start watching him the most, them seeing him ends up with a not so good kind of wife, plus the summary of his life, wife, his kids afterwards was meh. Im not sure if its MTLs fault but Ill check this out when alls done and completely translated.

I like the initial part of the novel, where the kids are just cute little kids. However, as it goes by its not getting more interesting, though this is still a good read without a doubt.

A slice of life novel thoroughly. Expect to read about day to day life in that era the story is typically convinence t for MC with everything going her way. There are funny, cute moments with little angst. It is a fairly relaxing read.
