“They pretty much thought it was just a foot”

Nicholas wore his No Fibula No Problem t-shirt to school on Monday. I guess the kids or at least his teacher took an interest in it and Nick took the opportunity to educate his class a bit on fibular hemimelia. With his teachers permission he decided to show his foot to the class. I knew nothing about this till after the fact and I’m glad. I know I would have worried. I’ve always worried about kids teasing him particularly about his foot. Well there was certainly no teasing. When I asked Nick what the kids thought he said “they pretty much thought it was just a foot”. This made me smile because it most certainly is just a foot and because Nick felt confident enough to show it off! Nicholas never ceases to amaze me!
