About Me

My photo
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. This blogger is available for hire!

Cover Girl!

A few weeks ago I received an email from the editor of inMotion, asking me to provide a photo for a cover story about parenting.  Since he was specifically looking for a photo of us in a classroom, we jumped into the car and headed to Robby's school.  Scott snapped a few quick photos and decided that we probably had something that was "good enough" before heading to IHOP for breakfast.

I never envisioned that one of our quickly staged photos would be selected for the cover photo. Had I known I was going to be on the cover, I would have put on make-up and a bra.

I am desperately trying to suspend all self-criticism concerning my image, but I find it difficult to look at the cover with completely objective eyes. I am accustomed to putting myself through brutal critiques, beating myself down until I can't find a single positive attribute. I realize that this is not a favorable trait and I am actively working on becoming less critical. 

So rather than pick myself apart, I am going to celebrate this amazing honor.  I am absolutely tickled to be featured on the cover of this issue of inMotion magazine. Who would have thought that I would be a Cover Girl!


  1. Peggy, I would be feeling the same way, but I wish you could see this cover through my eyes! You both look great!
