True story. A perfect mom, whose son is in my son’s 11th grade class, posted fifteen pictures of her daughter on Facebook, after the twelve-year-old won two gold medals at an elite gymnastics meet. Here is one of the follow-up posts from another dad.
“Congrats to Mackenzie and congrats to the parents (Kathryn that be you) for watching all the other contestants until Mackenzie’s turn finally came up!”
For We the Average – here is your role model of what the best parents do. This mom, Kathryn, actually performed the noble deed of sitting through the other girls’ routines before her daughter took the stage. What sacrifice! What nobility and honor! Not only do we have the privilege of witnessing the daughter’s accomplishments, we also have the opportunity to praise the mother for her selfless deed. If only all parents were as patient and kind to sit through other kids’ performances. Word is Kathryn even applauded after each loser’s routine.
“Way to go, Mackenzie! Looking good, Mom!”
“Which one’s the daughter and which is the mother?”
“Smokin’ hot mama! Still got it!”
