The Purpose of this Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide education and bring about higher awareness about Down syndrome. It is to share that life with Down syndrome (DS) is not scary, horrible, or to be feared.

My experience comes from raising my daughter, Nebraska Larae (Braska), born November 2006 with Down syndrome.
The posts on this blog are related in some way to life with DS or disability, and they are reposted here from my other family blogs. There are links to those blogs in the margin on the right side of this blog if you would like to visit them directly.

Thank you for coming by.

Like no big deal

I just sat in the kitchen with Braska in her booster chair, tray and bib in place. She ate an entire pudding cup, half chocolate (which she typically hates, but took willingly) and half butterscotch (which she apparently LOVES). She sat there, opened her mouth, even grabbed the spoon several times and fed herself. Then she finished, took almost an ounce from her cut-out cup of warm water (not on purpose, I just didn't notice it was warm--but she loved it) and then she was "aw dunnnn".

In our world, we may just throw a big party for this kind of thing.
