I never imagined I'd be asking health care professionals for their permission to take their pictures and put it on a blog.
When I said, “Seriously, we’re not talking about anything else until you take your meds.” I realized there are so many things I say in the typical (haha) week that I couldn’t fathom saying before I was a special needs mom.
Like, “Put down that dead bird! You should never, ever, lick a dead bird! EVER!”
“We do NOT tease each other about our speech issues, got it?”
“Fine. Then I will drop what I’m doing right now and come and get the prescription.”
“You grab and hold her and I’ll do the shot. No matter what, do not let go and for sure watch her head, she got me last time with it.”
“He drew a picture with fire and a gun. Game over.”
“Should we just give him the antibiotics we have in the cabinet.”
“Fine. Just eat a grape for dinner.”
“What do you want for dinner? A, B, C, or D?”
“So basically I’m cooking 4 different meals making me a short order cook. Okay.”
“Grab the E.R. bag, it’s in the closet.”
“I heard a weighted blanket could help so I don’t care how much it costs.”
“They were both approved for a Make-A-Wish wish.”
“It’s school calling. It’s your turn.”
Oh, how the list goes on. One thing about parenting kids with differences is that I’m rarely shocked anymore when a parenting challenge or health challenge smacks us in the face.
What are the things you couldn’t imagine saying before you had this life?
