In honor of the holidays, I thought I would share Maggie’s holiday program from school. I blurred out the other kids, because people get weird about that.
This was a real treat for all of us. We didn’t even know there was going to be a holiday program – just one other thing that parents take for granted, or worse as a burden – as something you have to go to. But for us – we never really thought Maggie would be able to participate in something like this. When we found out there was one, though, I was both excited that they were doing this and nervous that her participation would be another reminder of her disability.
I don’t like getting reminded about all of the things she can’t do. I live with them every day. So it was with nervous hesitation that I filmed, hoping for the best.
Just one more thing I’m proud to see her surprise me at.
