... You Might Be a Special Needs Parent




Alright, so this cultural reference is going to be about two decades too late, but I think it's funny, so here goes!

(BTW, many of these could end "You might be a multiples parent" too! Twins, trips and beyond definitely qualify as extra needs!)

If your car looks like you abandoned it during a zombie apocalypse for at least an hour after you return home... you might be a special needs parent.

If you are shocked into silence when a therapist starts actually treating your child on the first visit.... you might be a special needs parent.

If you have 10 pounds of food in your car but none of it is designed for your own consumption... you might be a special needs parent.

If you have your health insurance company on speed dial... you might be a special needs parent.

If you have become accustomed to quintupling your estimate of the price of equipment... you might be a special needs parent.

If you have triangulated the location and description of every type of item available for sale from a drive-thru window in a 15-mile radius of your house... you might be a special needs parent.

If you often pass by a store on your way to an identical store 10 miles away because it has some minor difference that makes it slightly easier for you to navigate with your child(ren)... you might be a special needs parent.
