I SHOULDN’T PARADE MY SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD AROUND LIKE SHE’S NORMAL?????????

So today was just another ordinary day. My mom wasn’t feeling well and I told her I would pick up some medicine for her  and I had to make a stop at Wal-Mart anyway.  So off I went with Leah to Wal-Mart.  While getting her out of the car and into one of those huge shopping carts with the seat in front of the cart (seriously the thing is the size of a minivan)  Anyhoo, I was strapping her into the seat when I hear an older woman and what seemed to be her daughter talking.   I hear her say the following “There are so many special needs kids around here!”  “In my day we didn’t just parade them around like they were normal”  WHAT THE $%^#  DID YOU JUST SAY?  Is what I wanted to say but I didn’t.  I believe I took the higher road, the road less traveled.  Anyway I said loudly enough for her to hear me. “C’mon Leah, let’s go parade around Wal-Mart.” Oh and she heard me because if looks could kill.  I waved and said “Have a lovely day!”

Seriously though, what is wrong with people?  Why on earth would you say something like that?  Why would you say something like that loud enough that I can hear you?  I am a special needs parent, that doesn’t mean  I am deaf.  I realize you have an opinion, I realize you want to share that opinion, but guess what NO ONE CARES!!!!!!!!!
