Today we're doing something a little different. Betty's been
sick and I didn't want to wait yet another week to put a new
episode out, so instead I'm sharing a few uncut chunks of my chat
with Mary Evelyn Smith that didn't make it into her story in
episode #17. I had such a great time chatting with Mary Evelyn and
found her so relatable. I think you'll really enjoy this unedited
discussion on a few different topics.
To sum it up, we chat about:
The new (intense) forms of mom guilt that show up when your
child's early childhood involves a lot of therapy (or maybe Mary
Evelyn and I are just both really good at beating ourselves
How to ruin any fun/relaxing/enjoyable activity
The terrible selection of children's books about disability and
How to approach and teach your child about disabilities
The connections that our kids (and their siblings) are not making
about the world
The responsibility we have as parents in shaping how our kids will
be viewed and treated
If you haven't had a chance, visit Mary Evelyn's blog, where she
chronicles her family's beautiful (but real) life.
