When we choose not to bring her….

Joe and I were discussing the week ahead. Alyssa has an open house at her school and without thinking we quickly said courtney would stay with the nanny. It got me thinking though. Is keeping her home from these activities hiding her? She hasn’t been at any of Alyssa’s activities. I actually wonder if her friends even know she has a sibling. Do the parents who see only one parent at her soccer games wonder why we barely are ever there together? We chose not to bring her because we know she will struggle with it and don’t want it to take away from Alyssa’s attention, but can’t help but wonder if are showing that inclusion isn’t important when we should be showing the world that inclusion is very much important. Hmmm….just some thoughts going through my head.
