I never thought it would be so heartbreaking to say goodbye to the twins EI teachers, but I was in tears every day of the week saying goodbye to one after the other.
I know when Anthony was a toddler and had a speech delay, it was sad knowing his therapist was leaving and he was growing up BUT when the twins therapists left it was so much different, yes I was sad that they were growing up so fast but at the same time I was uber excited to see them going off to preschool, I mean finally a moment to shower without a little person trying to climb in! What I was sad about was way more personal this go around, the twins each had 6 therapists and about 20 hours of services each, so these therapists weren’t just teaching the kids, they listened to my meltdowns, went to doctor appointments with me, watched each milestone the kids met alongside me, they taught me how to parent two autistic toddlers and showed me every resource available. They were more than therapists, they were in our home every day, and were family.
So I wanted to do something special, but with 12 of them I couldn’t afford anything close to what they deserved, but I came up with these cute little Bracelets, the stamped boxes say it all!
