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.
Ok, typically I do not feel so grateful for "normies" or their constant reminders that things are anything but normal in my home. But... there are some that I L-O-V-E love! There are a few kiddos who really love my kid and are somehow okay with her differences. We had a playdate with one of those kids yesterday. I love Jolie and I love her mom. And they both love the bird; totally and completely accepting. In fact, Jolie's mom first "met" me right here. She found my blog through a beautiful, wonderful mutual friend of ours and we connected and the rest is history. Today we will have a playdate with the little girl who was in the bird's class last year, took her under her wing and showed me that there really ARE kids in this world who will see more to the bird than the fingers in the ears or the flapping or the muddled up speech. Thank g-d for some of the normies!!
