Being an author is having angels whisper in your ear – and devils, too. ~Graycie Harmon

Remembering that my daughter cannot talk, walk, stand, point, confirm, do anything asked, do anything intentional … well, you get the picture.

She goes to a summer camp that is barely acceptable. It does offer a thing or two she enjoys, being in the water for instance. The camp insists that her one-on-one aide write in a book what she did during the day to keep me informed.

Let’s see … yesterday she …

“bowled = loved it!”

“She danced, played w/ instruments”

“made cookies w/ a new friend”

Bullshit. Serves to remind me how she actually cannot do any of that, just how disabled she is. As is her aide, apparently.
