Well, not really, but it brings me to my point.
As some of you know, my husband and I are finally going to be parents. We were matched with a birth mother and our baby will is due in a few months.
I made a comment today at work about how if our child wanted to play on a sports team that gave out "participation trophies", that I would not let him play for that team.
The reaction to that statement would make someone think that I killed a puppy, and the "discussion" became very intense. I won't go into the gory details, but I felt that no matter what I said, I was just not going to be understood.
I still stand by my opinion. I think that participation trophies are ridiculous. I guess I grew up during a time where trophies were earned, something that you worked hard to get and if your team lost, it made you want to work that much harder next time.
Have I changed my mind about letting our child participate on a team that has participation trophies? I guess we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
