Reader Garland Girl kindly linked my Tattletales rant on her blog, Crap Happens Acres. (Thank you!) And when I hopped over to take a peek, I found she had some excellent observations. For example:
"In my previous life as a single parent I was just a sheeple. I was one of those people that went along with whatever was told to me, occasionally bucking the system, but going along for the most part.
And then one day I woke up and I realized I was tired of being told what to do and following blindly. I had a mind of my own. I wanted to be able to make my own decisions on what I wanted to do, what I wanted to own, what I wanted for my children and how I wanted to raise them. Not what was trendy or popular, but what I thought was best. And I did just that."
Go read the rest. Excellent points. You go, Garland Girl!
