Living in a Dream World
The result was a party for an 8-year-old that cost over $29,000! That is a figure that some families must live on annually and it was blown in a couple of hours. The mother rented a Hummer limo, a red carpet, paparazzi, a ferris wheel, and a rock band to entertain her 100+ guests, supposedly all without the knowledge of her husband. She took her daughter for a spa day, modeling lessons, and rock star training. She kept mentioning how she could see "a little Miley" in her daughter. Hmmm....talk about rose-colored glasses!
And the saddest part of the whole story was the indecipherable speech impediment that the poor child had. There were subtitles at the bottom of the screen for most of her dialogue. If that clueless mother would take the thirty grand she spent on one day and invest it in speech therapy, her daughter would be a much better person because of it. The way she's spoiling her daughter is turning her into a monster who is never going to learn to cope with the reality of life.
The whole story made me thankful for how I'm grounded in the real world. I would rather give my children love, support, education, and valuable life lessons than limousines, fireworks, tattoos, and two-thousand dollar cakes.
