Community Support

Maybe this isn't news to anyone but me, but a really really cool thing has been happening lately. A little community is starting to develop amongst blogging mothers of children with disabilities or differing abilities, or children who don't fall totally into the realm of "typically developing" for one reason or another. These mothers are blogging and reading each other's blogs and commenting and building a really wonderful, supportive community. Recently I've felt it happening and felt included in that, and it's a wonderful feeling. Thank you.

Just the other day, I was trying to set up some playdate and I thought, "God, I wish the women who blog lived around here. Now that--*that*, dammit--would be a great playdate!"

Oh, how glorious that would be--surrounded by smart, funny moms who understand. No weird looks, no whispering...

I am so grateful I have found you guys.

This is making me weepy.

I dream of that playdate.

Of course, poor Ellie would get peed on and get her bike knocked over... :)

That's OK. She will probably rip the noses right off your kids with her sharp little talons. While smiling sweetly.

lol! R likes to pat kids on the face, gently and smile at them. He is so sweet like that.

Then, of course, he just ignores everyone.
