Today’s going to be jam packed filled-to-the-brim…but ironically, I won’t be seeing my kids much! I am rushing over to the preschool this morning to get posters hung before parents arrive for the Autism Celebration and then I am headed to the UN for an event for World Awareness Day. I’ll be home late and hired a sitter and feel a little strange to be doing all these autism-y things…but without my kids!
Yesterday I took some time to use the template I made for the school’s posters to make two posters of my own kids. I didn’t add them to the mix this year because there was already such a big turnout for that project. But I felt like it was important to do anyway…even though all I am doing with them is posting them here and on instagram. It’s not an easy thing for me to see my boys beautiful faces next to “My child is autistic.” I always get emotional when I do it (three times now!). But…it feels like a good emotional. Like a brave and hard thing. And I SO value the parents that sign up for this poster project and trust me to put something together of THEIR kid with that message. I’m so grateful for them. :)
Alright! I’m off! Have a great day! :)
