Serena and Venus… at it again… Palin 2

Okay…okay.  Maybe I am a wee bit late.   But what about those Williams sisters?

Serena took the US Open Women’s Final for the…now get this….for the 3rd time.  This mind you after she and Venus were fresh off from Bijing and having brought home the gold in the Women’s Doubles.  And, of course, after Venuus took Wilbledon for the 5th time.

But as they had in England at Wimbledon, the 2 sisters had to meet up again…but this time it was in the Quarter Finals in Queens, New York this past weekend in the US Open…and Serena (rated as #4 in Women’s Tennis) and Venus (#7)  they went at it hard.  But Serena prevailed having won…7-6, 7-6.  It is hard to believe that in 2006 Serena was rated below the top 125 Women in World Tennis…a fall from #1 over 5 years ago.  After winning this past weekend…she is back at World #1 female tennis player.

What a year for Venus and Serena Williams…chi-ching

Their parents must be…and family at large must be extremely proud of them.  And what absolutely great role models they are for young children, teens and others around the world. 

Their’s is truly a telling story of what belief in yourself, detemination, fighting against the odds, defying the odds, depth of character and a great family foundation can do for any child.

Palin…

While the Republicans are wildly applauding Sarah Palin, I have some serious doubts about her.

For one thing…yes, I do believe women are capable…and many times more than capable  of doing things over and above many men.  But when a woman has 5 children…she is vastly limited…if indeed she has any concerns concerning the care  and the personal development of her children. 

This morning while sitting in class my professor read the NY Times article about Palin and how she had kept her last pregnancy secret…even from own her parents and children.  The story tells how a very pregnant Palin went off on various trips knowing that her amniotic fluid was leaking.

What woman does that?

Already knowing that her last child was going to be faced with certain challenges…why would Palin jeopardize her child even further?

Though Palin claimed that she would become an advocate for families with special needs children…what about having been an advocate for her own child when he needed it most?  While he was still in her womb.  She seemed to have had no care about him and his possible life altering problems with her amniotic fluid leaking.

It sounds to me very much that the loving caring mother that Palin tries to present to the public may really not so loving and caring after all.  Just where was all that love and caring when it came to her own child…whom she had been informed would have Down Syndrome?  Yet, chose to ignor that his very life support…her amniotic fluid was leaking.

How could she have subjected that little child still in her womb with such a nonchalant attitude for his well being knowing that her amniotic fluid was leaking?  Instead of bed rest…she chose to fly off and do things which put that child’s life at even a greater risk…to the point where the child was born a whole month before it’s due date.  Thank goodiness for that or he may have died.

What in the world could she have been thinking?

It sounds more like to me she was trying to use her own form of birth control.

Almost immediately after giving birth to her last child, she returned to her office and resumed her duties as Governor of Alaska only some 3 days later.  Healthy though her new born may have been and is…but the fact that he came a whole month early and that his mother had been leaking amniotic fluid signals that he might have needed a bit more attention following his birth just to ensure that he was really alright. 

But that is not what Sarah Palin did.  I’m not saying she should have taken off some time…but she could have set up an office in her home and worked in between caring for new born baby.  And now with her baby just 7 months olds…she has decided to hit the trail and go stomping as VP canidate to the White House.

So, when does she slow down to take care of her family?

Do they have any importance to her?

Okay, maybe she was a soccer mom…but I would like to know just how active a soccer mom she was?

Or maybe somewhere down the line she turned in her soccer mom hat for her own blind ambitions too.

I fail to see where Sarah Palin is a champion of anything…at all.

And frankly while watching the Republican Convention…I kept looking at her youngest daughter and thinking-

“Why hadn’t anybody combed her hair?”

I’m not trying to be mean…but truthful.  It is what I thought. 

I come from a family of 8 children and whether it was off to school or to church…or anywhere…there were things my mother never overlooked in terms of our care and appearance.   My brothers stayed in my father’s barber chair and we (girls) were always getting our hair done…daily by our mother up until the time she started taking us to the beauty salon.  And I will not talk about our clothes or shoes…but we were very well maintained…all 8 of us.  I would not expect to see anything less of any mother but even more so of a woman the stature of Sarah Palin.

We have special needs children in our home…my parents adopted one…but both have been in our house for over 22 years…in fact they are a part of us.  Since they both are males…when my brothers got their hair cut so didn’t both Johnny and Eddie.  And they were both as equally maintained as we were when it came to our clothes and shoes etc.  My parents never made themselves look good and left us around looking like something else.  No…no…

Sarah Palin seems to be a mother more concerned about herself than her children…and wanting to sit in the 2nd most busiest and important office in the country rather than considering herself with the needs of  her young children.   Every decision she has made thus far speaks to that…she has little to no time for her family…and since she has young children they require time.   Especially, since she will soon also be a grandmother.  And anybody who has special needs children knows for certain that they can take up more of your time…if indeed you care about them.
