Take me to the fair, take me to the fair, don’t know anywhere I would rather be

Every time I think of the cornucopia of special needs fairs coming up over the next few months I want to do a little dance (if you don’t get the Elvis reference above, that’s okay). I recently sent an apologetic email in which I confused the Family and Professional Resources Fair with the Special Needs Camp Fair, which read: Only in NYC are there enough special needs fairs to get them confused – amazing!

And amazing is the perfect word to describe not one, not two but all three fairs coming up this Fall/Winter. I plan to attend all of them, even if I have to drag all 3 of my kids along (though I’m really hoping this is not the case) and hope to see you there as well!
