    Kids Who Are Different
    by Digby Wolfe

    Here's to the kids who are different,

    The kids who don't always get A's

    The kids who have ears twice the size of their peers,

    And noses that go on for days ...

    Here's to the kids who are different,

    The kids they call crazy or dumb,

    The kids who don't fit, with the guts and the grit,

    Who dance to a different drum ...

    Here's to the kids who are different,

    The kids with the mischievous streak,

    For when they have grown, as history's shown,

    It's their difference that makes them unique.

    Thanks Toto.
    When I picture difficult child doing his Come To Our Yard Sale dance in the middle of the driveway yesterday, these words just make all the sense in the world.

    (I'm going to have to print this and give a copy to husband.)

    OH.....this made me just want to hug my big, scrawny, difficult children neck. (Although hugs at this time are not appreciated:tongue:)
    I love my kid who is oh so different.

    Thank you- I think I'll print this out for both me and difficult child- he needs to be reminded that uniqueness isn't always a bad thing, too!
