Does anyone know if this family is an adoptive family? For once, it’s NOT mentioned (can that be?!?)
‘Meanest Mom’ Sells Son’s Car, Family Gets Quite a Ride

Yesterday she was the meanest mom on the planet. Today: the coolest.
Jane Hambleton, 48, gained a worshipful parental following when news of a classified ad she’d placed in the Des Moines Register was picked up by the Associated Press. The text of the ad:
"OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don’t love
teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy
mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer.
Call meanest mom on the planet."

* p.s. TRA-dar is when you recognize another transracial adoptee. Similar to KAD-ar or Gay-dar.
That story cracks me up…I gave you an award on my blog : )
Laura, thanks for the blog award!
The story made me laugh too. I love the creativity of the mom’s ad and my daughter said it was something I would do 🙂
I feel like I really want to know their TRA story. But yeah, that ad was incredibly funny. My daughter would NOT be amused.
