I did something today that I have been putting off for quite a while...I picked up Handicapped Parking Placards for our cars. I just didn't want to do it...I just kept thinking that we would never really need these...that is was all just a really bad dream and one morning Grace would walk, unassisted, into the breakfast room and ask for bacon (she loves bacon) and life would be normal. There would be no walkers, AFOS, standers or other special equipment and Grace would play "Ring Around The Rosy" without someone holding her up and doing the walking for her.
I know that this placard in our car will make things easier. Especially when I have all three of the kids and have to get them all and Grace's walker to our destination. I know this is what we/Grace needs but I'm going to call it our "Special Parking Pass for Really Cool Kids" because you see...that is really what it is for.
