Sesame Street has a new fan!
Today, it was brought to my attention that a puppet with autism will be joining the Sesame Street cast. Now, let me tell you I have never been a Sesame Street fan. I think my reason was I didnt want my kids to talk like Elmo and Cookies monster, but in complete sentences and proper English. But this, you guys, makes me want to record every freaking episode.
I genuinely believe that this exposure to Julia and Autism will decrease those looks Nolan and I get and they will turn into looks of understanding and "Oh yeah, I saw this on Sesame Street!"
It gives me a lot of hope and makes me feel less afraid. I know that the looks I have gotten are often not meant to be rude, just not understanding what is going on. This will open so many doors for Nolan and for me as a parent. I am very excited for this future.
