I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations.

So much of my mental and physical energies have been consumed with
disease and death, yesterday I needed to be reminded that life can be
happy and carefree as well. It was comforting to wake up with everybody

being put on the lap of a giant furry rabbit would be terrifying for a
