'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham Misses Daughter's First Day of School to Party

Eye Roll 42

Farrah Abraham Jenny McCarthyLet's say it's your daughter's first day of school tomorrow. What do you do? Get to bed early so you can leap out of bed, make her pancakes, and take a ton of photos? Or do you go the Farrah Abraham route and stay out partying until the wee hours, a few thousand miles away from home? The Teen Mom is getting major flack this week for missing her daughter's first day of school.

Photos on Twitter prove Farrah was in New York, partying it up after the VMAs with the likes of Jenny McCarthy just hours before daughter Sophia started her first day of pre-K back home in Texas. The folks over at Radar did the math (and checked flights out of New York) and have proven it would have been impossible for Farrah to make it home in time for her daughter's big moment.

But does that make her a bad mom?

More From The Stir: 'Teen Mom' Star Isn't Afraid of Being Criticized

I'm going to go out on a rather precarious limb here and defend Farrah.

Yes, you heard it.

So what if she wasn't there for her daughter's first day of school. It's pre-K. The kid has at least 13 more first days of school in her life.

And OK, so this was a biggie, her first first day.

But you know what? We don't always get to be there for the biggies because we can't be tethered to our kids 24/7. I remember going to daycare to pick up my then-1-year-old daughter after a long day of work, and she walked to me. The sitter graciously did not mention whether she'd walked earlier in the day, but my brain tells me that she probably did. I missed it. I MISSED my daughter walking for the first time.

Was I partying? No. I was working.

Which is kind of the same thing for Farrah at the moment. She's trying to build a career as an actress (God help us), and that means having her face seen at events like the VMAs. In the long run, having a job that puts food on the table for little Sophia is more important than being there for one particular moment.

Do you think Farrah is a bad mom for missing Sophia's big day?

Not only is she a bad mom, she's a stupid whore.

If you miss a first and its out of your control then ok. If you make a conscious decision to not be there then you are a bad mom.

Defiantly disagree with you. Whether its her first day of Pre-K or her first day of her senior year Farrah should be there. Not out partying in a whole other state. She is a poor excuse for a mom, she's annoying and clearly fame hungry. She won't stop until she gets it and clearly she doesn't care if that affects her daughter or not.

I agree with Denise 100%, Farrah made a conscious choice to NOT be there. She's a skank.

I made it to my daughter's 1st day of school last week AND I had/have pneumonia and can't drive. I had to walk her there huffing & puffing but I did it. The emergency room dr even told me to rest at home for 2-3 days but I didn't for my daughter. If she truly cared & wanted to be there she would have. She only cares about herself.

YES, stop thinking about your damn self and think of your girl. What would Derek say? He has to be rolling around his grave. You tragic b****!!!!!!!!! I want to slap the shit out of you.
