This is a new movement, started by a few moms like me: smart, funny, gorgeous, with a side of a kid with special needs. We're spending our Saturday mornings appreciating the small things. It might just be a pic, a paragraph, a line or two.
Today I'm appreciating my ability to be present and able to appreciate. In the past two weeks, I've been blown away by my bird's ability to function with what she's working with. For example, I picked her up from school yesterday (they swim at school on Fridays- amazing, I know) and the teacher told me that she was able to tread water longer than ANY of the other kids. Reminder: all the other kids are normy kids in her full inclusion classroom. So, this means that my little bird with the muscle disease out-treaded (a word?) all those other kiddos!! She is amazing!!
