This spring has been truly horrible for children with disabilities. The school closures and then the lack of live classroom instruction and therapy has devastated those kids and their families. Back in March, I predicted that school would suck for those kids, but I was thinking about more disabled kids than Ian when I wrote that post. It has sucked for Ian waaayyyy more than I could have anticipated, because his teachers never held live classes. He’s been doing worksheets in his bedroom by himself for three months. I am beyond livid. Now, I am stared at the abyss with no camps or pools or activities for him this summer. I hate everyone.
OK. I’m better. This is a first edition of Native Son in my poor, neglected Etsy shop. I am desperate for more inventory, but estate sales are not considered essential businesses. Why? I don’t know.
