Great things about being blind. More interactions with kids
On saturday, I had a delightful interaction with a little boy. It wasn't a long interaction but cute none the less and reminded me that I had been posting about conversations with kids about blindness. I met this little boy and his brother and family. My friend and I explained to the family that they couldn't pat Tulia when her harness was on because she was working. I took her harness off so that they could pat her. The mother was the most interested though. but one of the boys said, "she has a cute little bum bum." I was a bit shocked at first. Did they mean me? My friend? Or the dog? Tulia does have a cute little bum bum and her whole body wags when she is happy. I was releived that he meant Tulia and not any of the people. I still smile when I think of him saying it.
