Not only is it family that have not gotten to really know my children and getting the chance to experience something that would touch their hearts forever. It is people that they went to school with for the past 19 years. Out of these years they have not had a true friend. I know also that some of it has to do with me and the farmer being over protective. I read this article this morning and me and the farmer have different views on it.
This is a very good article and I enjoyed and could even put myself in the position. I agree that I don't always like being called a "special kind of mom". I am just a mom like everyone else. All of you would do the same thing or at least I hope you would. But than there are other times I think I deserve to be called a special kind of mom!! The reason that this article bothered me I have high lighted. I know that this could bother some parents. Feeling like this person is just trying to pat their selves on the back, but I don't always agree. My oldest son was voted by or rigged for him to win "prom king" I was so proud that the kids did this for him giving him a memory that he will never forget. He is still talking about it and probably will until he is old. I mean, don't our children deserve the right to have some of the fun things that so call normal kids do? I look at the bigger picture on how it makes my son feel I could care less about the person that is doing it "the date". I have asked his friends to call him, text him and just give him some normalcy. This is just my opinion and I wanted to share. It has been on my mind every since I read the article.
