Sometimes when we talk about Monkey with co-workers or other parents it’s really clear that we reside in a totally different world. Sometimes it makes me a little blue to be honest.
On Thursday, I was quickly wrapping up a project meeting so I could leave for Monkey’s IEP meeting when a co-worker asked if it was like a “PTA meeting.”
Heh, no. So, while I stuffed papers into my bag and thanked people for coming, I explained what an IEP is and she said…
“Oh! How cute!”
I stopped in my tracks, turned to look at her and…laughed. Several people stared at her like she had two heads but how can you not laugh at that?
My response was, “Not really. It’s kind of a pain in the ass, actually.”
