Every year I need to let the teachers and school know that I am blind and would really appreciate communication to come in email form. Would the teacher also send me the upcoming events and activities in an email. And because teachers are over worked, under paid, and so many more things; this is just not a priority for them.
This is not something that I expect to change with the teachers, these are the things that I need to advocate to the school boards and decision makers on what apps and websites that are going to be used. It should be a requirement for them to be accessible. Same goes for the websites of schools. Putting up a PDF calendar in a link that is buried 25 links deep in a web page is frustrating.
If I am kept out of the circle of communication then that is just not as easy for me. These are outdated stigmas that we need to change and when we talk about education and what that looks like for our children we need to think about how parents with all abilities are able to participate in the same way as other parents.
And that they have access to simple things like a school calendar. I have always had a love hate relationship with going out to eat, even from a young age. As someone who is totally blind today the experience can be good and bad especially because of being a guide dog handler. Since I was born legally blind and have always had really bad vision, and no not like how you have bad vision when you take your glasses off.
I had always had some anxiety when eating out. If we were going somewhere like a fast food place that had the menu behind the counter, there was no way that I could ever read those. They are horribly back lit, the print had horrible contrast it was just not happening. So I would order the same thing at the restaurant every single time no matter if I wanted something else or not. Or my favourite, you order whatever the person in front of you does.

Going to a sit down restaurant one would think that would be a better option but nope, the restaurants always have horrible lighting and the menu print is seriously microscopic, and the menus usually are covered in plastic that creates glare from the crappy lights. So again I would try to read the menu with it so close that I got all the germs from the menu right up my nose and even then I could not see it.
But you know what every restaurant usually has? Chicken Cesar Salad. So you guessed it, that was my fail safe. I never wanted my friends to read the menu for me because that meant that I had to admit that I was blind.
Looking back now I can see that the only person who suffered in any of this was me. Now as I have no vision left and much more confidence than I ever had.
What would I be anxious about you may be thinking. Well now that I am a guide dog user I always think, is today going to be another day where I have to argue my way into a restaurant, is today going to be the day that every points and stares and they put me in the back corner like an outcast. Even my children and my husband will try to avoid going to a sit down restaurant or a new restaurant because they worry if we will have any issues.
I am not someone who will not go because I am worried about what will happen when I show up with a dog. But the worry is always still there. Sometimes you get really lucky and you are reminded that this is how it should be. Last night my family went to a mew Boston Pizza near our home for my sons 13th birthday. On the way to the restaurant the kids and my husband were saying hopefully we have no issues. We walked in and there was no question or comment about Danson huge win. Then we sat down and I asked for a braille menu, and she came back with one!
That seriously never happens. There are very few places that have a braille menu. I was able to read the menu myself and pick something new.
We had a great dinner and when I left it got me thinking. This is how it is for people every single time they want to go out to eat. And yet here I am as a blind woman and I almost celebrate because I was able to enter a restaurant with no questions, order my own food off a menu I can read, and sit and laugh and make memories with my children as my guide dog lays at my feet. This should not be the case, in todays age we should all have the freedom and ability to go out and enjoy a small thing like having dinner without any barriers. I am blessed with three amazing children they are all very different individuals and I am very proud of the people that they are becoming.
Now I want to be real here for a minute. I have been asked recently if my kids have taken advantage of the fact that I cannot see what is going on. The answer is yes. I would love to sit here and say that, that is just not true my children, my angels would never do that. But that would be a huge lie and would only look good on social media, it would serve no other purpose.
You bet my kids have taken advantage of the fact that I cannot see what is going on. I know that I am not alone in this one. Kids will always try to see what they can get away with. I know as a kid I definitely took advantage of my parents working all the time. And did many things that I would not have done if my parents were around.
Together, Moving Forward
Like I said we have three children and one of them has pretty significant ADHD and they are all teens or pre-teens. There have been some really rough days trying to make sure that they are doing the things that they need to do and managing a child with ADHD. There have been nights when I really need a break and am not sure I am doing anything right. There are days when I take a well timed shower for some peace and quiet. I love my children, but I would be ok with skipping the teen years some days.
Now not everything about raising children is bad, there are so many amazing things. They can be the most empathetic, kind, amazing kids. Raising kids is hard, no matter if you have a disability or not. The reality is that people think my disability is the reason parenting is hard and that is just not the case. Parenting is hard for everyone. I have no idea what I am doing, I am sure I have made many mistakes along the way. The important thing is that I am doing the best that I know how.
And hopefully after all my mistakes and figuring it out along the way we will have three well rounded adults. I know that at the end of the day, we are all doing our best and that is all that anyone can ask.
Not being able to drive is a little bit of a pain in the rear but it definitely has its perks. You never have to try and find your ride, or your car because they park in the same spot every time! When people call you, they never want to talk long because of the background noise and all the people. Plus it is rude, so you can easily get out of talking to anyone!

You do not have to have road rage and you will get to your destination without almost needing bail money. If your bus gets a flat tire they come and pick you up with a different bus and you walk away from the broken one! People make you feel like you are the most amazing thing every day simply because you got your blind behind to a bus stop and are on that thing alone!

I mean you my friend deserve a Nobel prize!! And if you are not the biggest inspiration to someone, you may have someone pray over you or even get a marriage proposal because your guide dog will attract all the people you want to talk to. It is the only place you can walk on and make someone move out of a seat simply because you want it and you are disabled so you can have it! When your friends have to pay to fix their cars or put gas in them; you can justify as many pairs of shoes as you want!
I mean you walk everywhere!! The story and shovel they start digging the biggest hole with is quite comical! I have many different things that I use to do my work, many of them are specific tools for people who are blind or partially sighted like a braille display for example. But there is one tool that I can not rave about enough. This tool has made a huge difference in how I am able to get my work done, keep on task, keep organized, be efficient and so much more.
The one thing I can not make it through a work day without is my iPad. My last iPad died a few months ago after 3 years because I used it to death literally.
