If you have a child with special needs, you know the fear, the dread, the boredom that these three words bring. No matter how well-meaning your “team” is, they are scary. Especially if you live somewhere like Arlington. Casey’s last meeting had TWELVE people there. Waiting for me.

They looked like this:

  1. My first one for my bear cub is coming up and I'm terrified. I think that you may be wrong about them though and they are just trying to give you a false sense of security.

  2. You're probably right. I'm not kidding though. I thought about them all having sharp scary teeth and kind of hissing at me and I could not stop giggling. Which is AWESOME to do in an IEP meeting.

  3. The second picture was our previous district without make up. The first is our present district. We are blessed. Hope you got a great outcome!
