Did anyone see last night`s tv programme about 2 disabled mums?
one had dwarfism with something else, she was so pretty with lovely red nails and braided hair. She had a little boy almost 2. His dad was 6ft 3ins! The relationship had broken up, but little Tre saw his dad often. There were times when his mum really struggled with the
terrible twos tantrums.
She was just like any other mum, trying to discipline her little lad. She worried that when he grows taller than her, she
d struggle to get him to respect and obey her. She was shown getting him into a car, with a special seat. As Tre gets bigger, she is unable to carry him and he did run off a bit, near the road. Her kitchen units had all being lowered and Tre was able to reach dangerous things. She said, Im not a monster who shouldnt have children`, but she received some nasty looks and comments.
The second family shown, was a mum and dad who had 2 children and she was expecting their 3rd. Now she was a Boudica type…full of fight and courage to live how she wanted. She had the new baby and lifted her by her teeth, changed her nappy that way too.
Her disability was having fused bones. She couldnt move her arms or legs. At the end of the programme, she had insisted on getting some leg braces to help her stand. She hadnt stood or walked since she was a young child. She got the braces and forced herself to stand, leaning on a wall. She said next year she will walk.
She said you can do anything if you wanted it enough.
What do we all think about this?
I`d love to walk again, but i know and accept I never will.
