This morning as I was dropping my son off to kinder, I stopped in to chat with his aide about toilet training. She wasn't in the room at the time because she didn't actually start with my son for another 1/2 an hour. So the main carer who was in there asked one of the other carers to call for the aide, because the special needs mum wants to talk to her....
This didn't offend me in the slightest. It was however, like a cold bucket of water in the face.
I am a special needs mum.
I guess I am still coming to terms with it.
