My ten-year-old son enjoys reading the “Who? What? Where?” Series. If you’re not familiar with these non-fiction books, they are biographies of famous people (both historical and contemporary figures) as well as books about well-known places and significant events.
On the back cover of each book, is a series of questions related to the book’s subject. This week, I thought I’d borrow that format to share a few things about me:
Who Is Wendy Kennar?
— A little girl who always liked to wear plastic jewelry around the house and pretend she was a movie star.
— A college student who didn’t have a car for half her college years and relied on six buses a day to commute to and from California State University Northridge.
— A mother with an invisible disability.
** All of the above
It’s all true. And you can click here to read my personal essay “Parenting With an Invisible Disability” at MomsLA.com.
