My wishes for you this school year

Aug 31, 2018
Please excuse this departure from my norm, I really feel the need to put some of these feelings down.  All parents have wishes and hopes for our kids every school year.

Moms of kids with disabilities have wishes that can be so vastly different most moms, and that is why I am sharing. 


If you know a parent of a child with differences, PLEASE reach out.  Sometimes just the acknowledgement is enough to make the day better.  This post contains affiliate links, and here is a link to my privacy policy.

My sweet boy,  I have so many wishes for you.  The first one, this year, is I wish for you a friend.  I wish for you to find that friend that you talk about every day, one that doesn't care when you call him a her, and shares the ball at recess.

I wish for you to find the words.  The words to tell the other kids what you want to say, to tell us at the end of the day ALL of the exciting things that happened.  The words to stand up for yourself when someone isn't being kind.

I wish for you to be excited about learning and not get overwhelmed when the kids are too noisy or the room is too colorful.

I wish for you to talk to someone at lunch and have other kids sit by you.  I know the cafeteria is loud, but you can be loud too!

I wish for all of your education team to see what we see: a gentle, funny little boy with a sensitive heart, who loves babies (and begs for another one almost every day).

Above all, my sweet boy, I wish you to be happy.  Happy with what you choose.  I am learning that my expectations for your happiness, don't always match.  Sometimes, you are happier playing by yourself, and it's just too hard to try to talk to someone new.  Sometimes, when I think you aren't listening, you surprise me.  You do it your own way, my precious boy, and thank you for showing me that different can be better.

Love,
Mommy
