So my husband had never heard the Holland story before, probably because the only websites he frequents with regularity are Penny Arcade, running chat boards, and sports websites.

I explained it to him, and he immediately made me smile with his response.

"This is really dumb, because everyone plans for Italy, even people with neurotypical kids. And what they get is Antarctica! And they are in shorts, with skimpy clothes packed, ready for the beach.

"But the thing is, you and I, we learned to love Antarctica, and now here comes a whole school system's worth of people-- who mean well-- who keep trying to take our little penguin and make him move to Holland, and he's a PENGUIN."
