    And now it would be a small dog as an accessory. Shouldn’t the clothing be the main focus?

    Good morning, Cathy clan!! I missed you guys! Our trip to FL was good. Lil’s team didn’t do well in the competition, which caused their coaches to yell at them (which really made me mad), but the good news is that we are done with cheerleading for a while and we got a fun trip to Disney. The entire year still bothers me, but we’ll get over it and learn a lesson from it. Anyway, I’m glad to be back.
    Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    (Whoops, I must have be typing my comment while Susan was typing hers. Sometimes, I start my comment and then have to get the kids to school, so I don’t post it until later. Oh well, great minds think alike!)

    I’ll go for the dog over the baby anytime.

    if they win, they get ice cream!
    if they lose, they get ice cream!
    Then back to practice, so they can win next year.

    No matter what product someone is selling (whether I’m interested in buying it or not), I’m MUCH more likely to take a closer look at the ad if there’s a cute puppy/dog in it than if there are babies/kids in it and I’m sure that I’m not the only one either!!!!!


    Hi, rgcviper!


    lightenup: So sorry that Lil’s coaches felt the need to be so mean and abusive to the cheerleading team just because they weren’t able to advance in the competition to the 2nd day. They had an otherwise great year so why not end it on a good, positive note instead of yelling at them and making them cry? What did they hope to gain by doing that? Some people are just not meant to work with children! I’m assuming this is a school cheerleading team. Can you go to the principal, superintendent or the school board and have these coaches fired for what they did? Something like that can really crush a child’s spirit and shouldn’t be allowed to happen. Poor little dears!!!!! I’m glad you enjoyed your trip to Disney World though. Maybe that helped make up for the coaches’ meanness just a little bit?!? Hopefully anyhow!!!!! Please be sure to tell her how proud her “Cathy” family is of her and how well her team did this year!!!!! :-)


    Hello and Happy Tuesday, fellow “Cathy” clan. Hope everyone had a really nice day today!

    Thank you, sis! I will tell her that everyone is proud of her and her team! She loves reading what you all say when I’m on the comics, but I’m usually trying to get her ready for school and won’t let her read much. LOL

    Unfortunately it’s not a school cheerleading team, it’s a private team and the owner is one of the coaches. She may know cheerleading, but she’s very immature and shouldn’t be working with children. Lil seems okay with a lot of what her coaches do and say, so she doesn’t say much, but I’ve heard from other people what they say, and it’s terrible. I’m so happy that we’re done. This is a fairly new gym (this is their 2nd year open), so I’m hoping that word will get around about how they treat people, and things will change.
    Lil has fortunately decided to take a break from cheerleading and focus on the gymnastics side of it. So we have a year to either find a new gym or see if this one improves.
    Thank you for your concern!! You’re sweet as can be and I always appreciate that!
