I actually COULDN’T care less. For those of you who sent me a note on my grammar on my Yahoo article this morning, you were all so polite about it that I had to give you a shout out. My husband is appalled at my error, being the grammar enthusiast that he is. Thank you for being so kind when explaining to me the difference between when you COULD and COULDN’T care less. I promise, at one point, I did know the difference. That error made it past my editor (you know him, his name is Cam). I am woman enough to admit my mistakes. There are SO many of them, but this one is an easy fix. I have gone back and corrected the error in my post. Again, thank you!
Thank you for helping Cate become a trending topic. Not only for her, but for every kid who has a visible difference. Hopefully, reading our tiny little anecdote will help people understand that those types of outburst hurt. Be kind. It’s all parents like me, and kids like mine, ask.
To everyone who wrote to me to complain about my “whining”, or “wining” for those of you who forgot the ‘h’, although I do enjoy that kind occasionally too, the irony of you emailing me whining about what a w(h)iner I am wasn’t lost on me. You’re funny too, in a whole different way. I got your emails though, and here’s a shout out to you too, because I heard you, and obviously, you didn’t get the point of the post. That’s okay. I write for my kids, the people who care about them, and not so much for anyone else.
–FullPlateMom, who is, and always will be, an unabashed whiner when it comes to someone hurting her babies.
