I have a confession to make, but I’m really, really embarrassed about it.
I forgot to pick up the blue lightbulbs at Home Depot.
I know. Pathetic and shameful. A hypocrite!
The nerve of her!
Go ahead, BRING IT. I’ve got it coming.
So, I’m sorry. I’m hanging my head in shame. For reals.
But…instead of buying and putting in blue lightbulbs, I did something else.
I took my autistic son to his school carnival…during the evening hours, which is typically the hardest part of the day.
And he behaved like an angel. The vice principal and his teacher were there, and they got to see that he can behave just fine around other kids, with support.
That was how I spread awareness last night, instead of turning on a blue porch light. And I don’t know if anyone there became any more aware of autism because we attended, but I do know that I wouldn’t have missed this joyous moment for anything.
