This is not a drug PSA! It’s a mom PSA.


I  posted this picture about a week ago.

This is what my daddy can accomplish drug-free. Pretty impressive effort on his part.

This is what my mommy can accomplish on drugs.

(legally prescribed ones – in her name)

What a showoff!

This is one of the reasons that daddy married mommy. He won’t tell me the other reasons.

I’m glad mommy is getting better from her surgery, because I missed her.

I really missed the stuff that mommy does for me.

Oh darn! Does this mean I can’t stay up late anymore daddy?

Cheers At Church


This is me…..today…..after church.

Church

I went on stage with my class (2/3-year-olds) and we sang a song and held up signs. Okay….I didn’t hold up any of the signs and I didn’t sing the words, but I did do some other things.

What I did do:

  • I stood up on stage with my class. No one held me or my hand.
  • I didn’t get scared with everyone watching me.
  • I didn’t cry when the kid beside me started to wail.
  • I didn’t sing the words, but I moved my lips. I think that’s what most people do on stage.

 

In the end…..everyone cheered and clapped.  

 

BE AWARE: I am a performer. BUT….You probably knew that.

 

It’s Monday? Where’d the weekend go?


I’ll tell you where it went…..to pieces. It was picked up by a tornado called “My Parents” and tossed around like a rag doll. I’ll try to lay some of the scraps out for you. I was able to rescue a few moments with things you should be aware of.

Friday night: I was playing Peekaboo with a STRANGER while waiting in line at a department store my mommy and daddy took me too.

BE AWARE: I play games and interact with the human race.

FRIDAY

Saturday: That was a pretty big day for me. It was our Fall Festival parade and I was on a float for Special Olympics. I’m in the back sitting on mommy’s lap.

BE AWARE: I’m an athlete.

I’ll be a Young Athlete for Special Olympics until I’m eight-years-old. Then…..I can compete in stuff.

LOOK! We have a big torch and everything.

Float

I didn’t think we should throw candy without testing it first.

BE AWARE: I care about public safety.

Lollipop

BE AWARE: I learn stuff.

Sunday: Mommy drew a circle on the left. She did okay, but a little messy.

My circle is on the right. I think mine is just as good. I even added some extra stuff just because.

SUNDAY

Today (PreK/Day 21): Here I am this morning, checking the safety of the tunnel before my train goes through.

BE AWARE: I can get away with not wearing a shirt.

Day 20 Train

Now…..I am getting ready for school. I was pretty late (1.5 hours).

Someone, this friend I know…….Yeah that’s it, woke me up a few times during the night. They made me jump around, throw stuff out of my crib and kick the rails. This happened a few times. Mommy let me sleep in.

BE AWARE: I try to figure things out for myself, like putting on my “special shoes”. OR….Playing with the Velcro straps because it’s cool to do that.

Day 20 Shoe

I’m self-sufficient. (PreK: Day 15)


Mommy took this picture of me after I got home from school today. It was a half day, which for me meant only two hours. That was a good thing since I had to talk to my associate.

“Mom. I told you not to eavesdrop on my meetings with my consigliere.

There are some things…..you can’t unhear.”

Day 15

BE AWARE:

I can get what I need.

See me at the big black thingie?

Self-Sufficient

Look at how effortlessly I opened it with my tiny little fingers.

Oct2-2

See how focused I am? I’m bending down and reaching for what I want.

Oct2-3

Tortilla chips. My favorite.

Oct2-5

Now you know how I get to this happy place.

I know where the snacks are kept.

I won’t starve.

Oct2-6

Be aware. Be very aware. (PreK: Day 14)


October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

To bring awareness, I’m gonna share something everyday that you may or may not know already. Don’t worry though……You can still stalk me at preschool. Scratch that. You can stalk my adventures on this blog. Stalking in real life will get you arrested you big dopey! And….That would be the nicer option.

This is me at about 6:30 this morning. Even in the most coffee necessary timeframe for most Americans, I am up and using technology. Okay. I might not have pants on, but I’m guessing a lot of people weren’t wearing any at that time either.

iPad

BE AWARE:

I can use an iPad just as well, if not better than any kid my age. I don’t lick it. I don’t try to eat it and I don’t throw it. It’s not like I’m an animal. I’m a responsible human being, who understands it’s a privilege to have electronics. AND……My family understands that keeping their limbs intact is a privilege they will quickly lose if they mess with my iPad privileges.

Leading The Way: PreK (Day 12)


Okay daddy, we got this.

We don’t need mommy to make sure I get to school okay.

Follow me this way.

Day 12

Pick up the pace daddy. We don’t want to be late.

Day 12-2

You still there?

If I stop to look, it could really throw off my rhythm.

Day 12-3

Look! We’re almost to the playground.

That’s the first thing we do when I get to school.

Day 12-4

What? I didn’t know you and mommy talked to each other.

I guess I forgot we don’t play first.

Oops! My bad!

Day 12-5

Three Times A Charm: PreK: Week 3/Day 9


Listen…..I’m not going anywhere until I finish this final scene for the movie I’m making: “Die Hard: The Slow Way” (Sequel #6). At this point…Bruce Willis could just pick his teeth and I’m going to make money.

Day 9 Die Hard Movie

Okay….How is my hair?

Day 9 How is the hair

Uh Oh! It’s those darn steps again.

Mommy! I told you I’m not ready yet.

Day 9 Those darn stairs again

Come on. You know you want to pick me up.

Just because you gave birth to me, doesn’t mean you’re done carrying me around.

Day 9 Pick me up

 

I know what I’m doing. (PreK: Day 8)


We’re leaving.

I’m ready. Are you?

Day 8-1

I know.

We’re going outside. DUH!!!

Day 8-2

How did you get in front of me like that?

That’s kind of creepy.

Day8-3

Okay. Well…..I’ve got my ride.

Can I get a boost up?

Day 8-4

MY SCHOOL DAY: playing, eating, private stuff, speech, occupational therapy

SPEECH: I signed the word more and said the word “pop” several times when playing with bubbles today. That bubble play with mommy is paying off.

AND NOW…….I’M READY FOR BED!!!!!

Day 8-5
