So what do you do when you have a badass little girl who thinks differently, acts differently, talks differently...
And wears her hair differently because she has a friend at the gym whom she ADORES and thinks is the COOLEST...
But others don't quite understand her "Aubrey-ness," often mistake her for a boy, give her a hard time about her "boy" haircut, and/or just wonder about why things are "off" with her... Well, after I trimmed up and re-faded Aubrey, Kala wanted to show both her little girls it's not only ok to be "different," but it should be celebrated..... And she had me shave half her head.
Was it planned? No.
Was I a tad hesitant? At first.
Did it make sense? Absolutely, if you know Kala.
Friends, I like to think I'm a good parent.
I like to think I am a champion of our kids and of every child.
I like to think I understand the complexities of raising a child, let alone a child with special needs.
Truth be told, every day is a new day.
There is no manual.
And, truth be told, of course I don't.
I don't know what it's like to spend countless nights in hospitals, wondering if your child would survive.
I don't know what it's like to have to battle insurance companies and medical companies, fighting for your child every single day.
I don't know what it's like to hear your child will never walk or talk or be "functional." I don't know what it's like to prove doctors wrong and to watch your child hit unexpected milestones.
I don't know what it's like to NOT raise a healthy child.
But Kala, she's teaching me every day.
I learn from her patience.
I learn from her passion.
I learn from her resilience.
And most of all, I learn from her sacrifice.
Kala, tonight I watched you fight tears of such joy as you watched Aubrey dance and cheer as you became her "twin." I watched her kiss your head as you knelt with her to let her feel it, which is a big deal..... as her sensory impulses are to (FOR SURE) rub your head but not to kiss it.
And I lost my shit when she hugged you and said, "Oh mommy, now we're twins and everyone will know we're different together!!!" You make me a better man, Kala.
Every day. .
You make us better.
