I spend so much time looking for information about Down syndrome, reading some of it incenses me, and that makes some posts long and I think overly negative. I have two unpublished posts for this challenge, both are about issues that make me angry, and I got lost writing them, I may go back and edit them when I am not emotionally raw. Maybe post later on, I don't know right now.
The one abiding truth for me and my daughters with Down syndrome is that we love each other. Sure they can get into everything, they can have behaviors that drive me bonkers, and mommy can be having a bad day and be grumpy herself, but all I have to do is sit down on the floor and 3 adorable girls are on top of me hugging me and kissing my cheek, smiling, laughing. As I sit there holding my daughters, I feel like the luckiest person on earth.
Yes my typical children loved to sit with me too when they were tiny tots, but they always had their minds on the next thing they wanted to do, they were busy, they moved fast, so with them it was "Here mom, take a hug, can I go now?" We love one another too, and I am so lucky to have them in my life, but their minds were in the future, the little gals live in the now.
This is just one of the many things I love about my little girls.
