Last year, Baby Betsy got sick with a rare form of arthritis...so she had a stem cell transplant! Have you ever heard of such a thing?!! The kids wrote her good well notes, drew pictures, and couldn't wait until she came back to school.
Well, yesterday was her first day back. The local tv station came to the school to do a story about Baby Betsy going "back to work." Since my autistic kiddo has spent quite a bit of time with Baby Betsy, especially when he gets really upset at school. He loves her soft fur and her wet nose. "It's a sensory thing, Mom" is what he told me. So to help brag about Baby Betsy and the contribution she makes to our school, I agreed to let the tv crew interview my son...which led to ME being interviewed. Not exactly what I had planned! And the irritating thing is that they took about 1 1/2 hours worth of footage and then edited it down to less than 2 minutes. So almost everything I had said, and Ethan had said, and Baby Betsy's owner said was cut out...until the interview basically didn't make sense. But Ethan was so excited that he was on tv! He thinks he's a star!!
