Typically I get comments from strangers or questions from them, but I rarely get comments from friends...
I have this new friend...I say new because I only met her back in the summer. She has a 3 year old typical child with no special needs. She knows all of Brady's special needs. Well, this past weekend, she made a comment to me about "how blessed I am because he isn't a typical 3 year old that is constantly into things, making it hard to clean, organize, etc."....Seriously? Right after she said this to me, I thought, "are you kidding me?"....My response to her was, "do you know how blessed you are that you have you have perfectly healthy child with no special/medical needs at all?"
Yep, my response shut her up real quick.
People just aren't grateful these days...her child will grow out of the stage where she's "into everything"...my child will NEVER grow out of the way he is. Her comment was just insensitive and ignorant to me.
I haven't had one of these in a while so it was bound to happen sometime!
UPDATE - She actually apologized to me. I was quite surprised...of course she sensed something was wrong and she asked me so I flat out told her and she was extremely apologetic and feels very bad. Maybe she thinks before she speaks from now on:)
