Today at MDO the kids had an Easter Egg hunt. It was a beautiful day...over 80 degrees. I went to pick them up a little early so I could participate in some of the festivities. The teacher said that Mack and Sophie had absolutely no interest in hunting eggs and just wanted to play on the slide. Mack was however, VERY interested in the food table. That boy loves his food.
When I got there Grace was seated in the plastic airplane (which broke my heart) and an older woman was sitting with her. I sat on the ground next to them and we began talking. She mentioned, out of the blue, that she had just see the movie My Left Foot. It kind of threw me off guard a bit. I guess someone told her that Grace has CP and she was trying to relate. I then went into my "There is such a wide range of CP and every person affected is different" spiel. It was incredibly awkward. Gosh, some people really don't get it do they.
