Baby-sitters Club Snark-fest!
Aloha! Here’s the ending of Karen’s Accident. I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to post this. The second half was a little easieir for me to snark. I’ve just been sick for the past few days.
I hope you guys enjoy this!
( Here’s the end of the book!Collapse )
Phew! I cant’ say how relieved I am to be done with this snark. Mahalo, thank you to everyone who supported me while I did this. I would have had the second part done sooner, but I’m getting over a cold. Next up is Abby’s Twin!
I want to add one more note before I share the other story about donating toys. Yup, I didn’t forget. Smile.
The only thing I don’t agree with re: this book is the way Karen’s PTSD was NOT dealt with and how she overcame her fear so quickly. It sends a really bad message to kids. Firstly, that if they’re scared about the hospital and having surgery that they need to deal with it alone. Secondly, that PTSD is something you get over, which is NOT true. I know first hand. It’s managable, but you DO NOT get over it. I know what it’s like to have to deal with fear and emotional upheavel due to surgery alone and it’s not fun. It would have been more helpful if one of Karen’s parents would have helped her through it by validating her feelings and maybe sharing a story with her to try to empathize with her. But then again, this is Stoneybrook. I’m surprised Kristy didn’t have a role in this story. So much for being the best big sister ever!
Okay, here’s the other story. Don’t worry, it’s short. Although it’s about Rajah, so I have a feeling it’ll be more enjoyable. LOL! Basically, I had gathered some toys to donate to the animal shelter where I adopted Rajah. They were toys he didn’t play with anymore. When the day came, I had to take Rajah to the vet for a check up. We get there and he turns into a cougar! The noises coming out of him were ones I didn’t even know he could produce. Oh and apparently, he took kunfu lessons when I was out of the house too. LOL! I know he was scared and I tried to assure him, but he just didn’t want to be there. The vet was also very nice to him. Long story short, after the app, I felt so bad, I gave the toys to the vet instead. They have two office cats. They also give them to cat parents who have fixed incomes. I felt good doing it.
Thanks again for sticking with me on this one!
