Get It Down: 21 for 31 – day 25

Even though I was supposed to blog about Down syndrome a lot and have all the fancy dancy facts to show, I think I have only snuck in 2-3 posts about it. I have to agree with Melissa, it is really not a big deal in our family. Vince is just Vince (I am talking about my Vince here, not Melissa’s husband), and his bonus chromosome does not really make a difference in our daily life. We are a pretty ‘normal’ family that eat, sleep and have fun together. Sometime we hit a brick wall with issues that are a little different – like what theory to follow, what therapy to apply for or what exercises to prioritise. But these issues does not cause a problem, it just gives us a moment to stop, think and appreciate what we have and what Vincent needs. To say that we celebrate the small things more would be an exaggeration, I think we just celebrate the things that any other family would -regardless of chromosome count.

(Mr. B rocks at celebrating – thanks for dinner and present last night!)
