Friend or I'm busy right now.
Having more than one child can really put things in perspective. Dj is usually the odd man out. He gets excluded from things that his big sister doesn't. And while he hasn't a clue what's going on, one day he will. I try my best to protect him because when he gets excluded it hurts.
I was raised with a take it or leave it attitude. If we all can't roll together, that none of us can. But not everyone is accepting of that. I'm going to live the rest of my days shielding DJ from strangers leaving him out because he's "different". But when it starts to happen in your own backyard, that's when it's the most hurtful.
So what do I do? Let it happen? Start a war? Cut ties with people?
Am I supposed to expect people closest to me to stop what they are doing to enter DJ's world?
