What we never thought we'd say.

I wrote a little post on Support for Special Needs.com about what we say. Literally What We Say now that we're parents to kids with special needs.

You know what I'm talking about, the stuff we say that when it comes out of our mouths we can't believe it just did but yet it feels to natural and "normal."

I joke about how typical parents (haha) don't understand this language we've developed.

Like when we say, "Why isn't he walking? I'm thrilled he's sitting."


"If you don't bite me when I give you this shot, you can have a treat out of the treat box!"


"It was a toss up hon, life-saving meds or a vacation?"


"I've got him! I've got him! Just keep his feet from kicking my shins!"


"If you just eat this salad, you can have the Poptart."


"Now how long have we been married? Wait. We just skipped a whole year? We just missed it? I mean 16 wasn't so great we had to have it twice."


A link to the original post and some hilarious (to me) quotes from other parents, go here.  Leave your own if you are so inclined to do so.
