Easter 🐣 Show fun!
A little girl came up and asked why Mia had a walker, Brent explained she just needed it to help her walk, “but why?” she continued, before her mum dragged her away.
Hopefully when they get home, if she’s still intrigued, they can have a good discussion about how it takes all sorts of different people to make up our wonderful world! 😊
I feel like the crazy mum saying to all the show ride workers, “I’ll grab her off, I’ll get her down...” I guess part of it is to avoid any mishaps with Mia’s leg and part of it is just general protection of Mia to people’s reactions. We are so aware of them, the kids that literally run into things looking at her, the parents who realise their kids are staring and quickly turn them away, the adults who do double takes when they realise her foot is backwards etc... As you can see in this photo, it’s pretty obvious while she’s not wearing a prosthetic. We used to get looks because of the prosthetic leg, now we get looks because she’s hopping around on one leg.
You get used to the looks but you also don’t at the same time. There is such a fine line between a passing glance and outright uncomfortable staring. 😳
Mia & Andie has a super fun day @sydney_royal_easter_show
