Why do some people think it's ok using outdated, offensive terminology when refering to people with disabilities or people of different ethnicities? Its not ok. It is ignorant. What is even more upsetting is when people make negative comments like that, they can't even admit to it. This is what I call immaturity. I know I'm being too harsh and people make mistakes and nobody is perfect. But please take the higher road and admit that your comment was ignorant.
On the brighter side of things, I am very excited that it is almost Christmas because this is the first year that both my boys are getting very excited about it. They understand the two most important things: Christmas is the day Jesus was born and they get presents from Santa! Life is good!
