It happened today

It happened today.

I've wondered when it would happen and whether it would be a traumatic realization, brought on by harsh teasing or a cutting, unkind remark. But it wasn't. It was just a simple and innocent acknowledgement of difference.



"I was looking at my ears today and this one's really small. It's like a baby ear."

I hope this is a sign of things to come, just simple—neutral. But we don't know. We don't know how other kids and the rest of the world will respond to the difference. Or how the difference will continue to manifest over time.

The difference doesn't matter, of course, but we just don't know what's to come.
