This whole week I’ve been on a rollercoaster of emotions.
So high and then so low...
This week I launched my podcast 💥 and holy cow I felt so much love and support- this is the high I was riding.
And then here’s the low-...
I guess I need to give you some back story so this makes sense...
Kai and Ily were both born with ptosis. I was told by their Dr. that one of their eye lid muscles didn’t develop while they were in my tummy.
Ptosis for both Kai and Ily meant that they could barely open one of their eyes. Since they were born they’ve both had 2 surgeries each to try to correct.
However, neither of their eyes are symmetrical like other people... but when they are wearing their glasses you can’t tell as much the difference.
The other day Kai told me that his glasses fell off on the bus and the kids laughed and told him he looked weird.
This was REALLY hard for me to hear.
Even though Kai was ok... I was not, I wanted to show up at his school the next day and fight these 6th graders myself 🤣🤣🤣 (Fonsi said that was not a good idea... )
But the truth is their eyes do look different.
I know that others notice and look and at times make comments... it just makes me want to put walls up around them and me.
Anytime someone has said something it cuts me like a knife.
So in order to protect them and me, I’ve found myself not posting certain pictures or videos where you can tell that they are “different”
But by doing this, I’m not doing them or me or YOU any favors.
I'm hiding them to protect them and me....but how can we fully accept if we are hiding.
I need to show up with them just as they are...
So I’m done hiding it... who gets to decide what’s normal anyway?
