Top 10 Benefits Of Having an SPD Child
10 - I have a personal Grocery Bag Carrier - my SPD kid BEGS to carry everything
9 - I can thumb my nose at fashion - My SPD girl doesn't care if clothes match or even if they look cute, it's all about how fuzzy, silky or tight they are.
8 - No More Freezing My Butt Off At Soccer Games - My SPD tactile defensive kid avoids ball kicking, running at others sports like the plague. Instead, she likes gymnastics, which is indoors in nice heated buildings. Happy, happy me!
7 - No coiffure nightmares - My SPD kid can't stand anyone touching her head, so she never asks for complicated hair styles
6 - Laser tag and hopping houses - My SPD kid loves them - heavy vests and lots of jumping. I can act like a kid without needing an excuse
5 - I can skip noisy crowded places - My SPD kid can't stand them, so someone has to bite the bullet and stay home with her, right?
4 - Becoming knowledgeable at something very few know anything about - heaven knows too many school personnel and medical professionals know very little about SPD, so somebody's gotta do it
3 - Less laundry! - My SPD kid can't stand changing clothes every day, so sometimes I give in and just let her wear the same clothes for days at a time. And she's thrilled, like it's a treat :)
2 - Clean bathrooms! My SPD kid is fascinated with cleaning sinks and toilets. So I "let" her :)
1 - EXTRA CHOCOLATE!! - My SPD kid is on a GF/CF diet so she gives me all her chocolate Halloween candy :)
