One of the Facebook groups I’m in had a “things special needs parents never say” thread. These are the ones I related to most.

- While watching Blue’s Big Musical: Periwinkle (a cat who does magic tricks) said, “I, the amazing Periwinkle…” Emily echoes back, looking at me, “I, the amazing Mommy!” I teared up, even though it was just a script. 😉
A few minutes later, DH got in the car to go to lunch with us, and it was, “I, the amazing Daddy!” 😉
Emily broke a coffee mug today (by accident).
She was saying “uh oh, uh oh… oh no” in a loop, while sounding increasingly nervous. I checked her hands and feet for cuts, as she had tried picking up the cup as I came in the room.
I asked if she was okay and told her not to touch the broken cup. I told her she wasn’t in trouble, it was just an accident.
She responded with “it’s all right, as long as I’m okay.”
I couldn’t help but laugh and paraphrase it back to her. 😉
I got a hug afterward, too. ❤
