It happened last night.


1

(For those who need RED print translated: “Something so tragic happened last night …. I can’t even talk about it )

2

(“Uh … Who told you to take the camera off me? I’m telling a story here.”)

3

(“As I was saying … It’s very emotional.”)

4

(“It started off with Jennie and her Franks. Not these … so don’t try to find this one to do something bad like suffocate it in a blanket and call it dinner for your kid.”)

So….. I was enjoying my time with Frank and then it wasn’t fun anymore. Frank went too far and it was hard to breathe. I started to choke. Mommy tried to help me, but she just wasn’t getting the job done.

First off, don’t ever blame the kid with a disability …. for anything …. ever. I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. I’m innocent! Second, If anyone needs to go to save money in this house ….. it ain’t me.

It’s mommy’s fault because she makes my food at the right temperature and doesn’t give me ketchup. All those chemicals are bad for me. Boy….Was she off base? It’s like giving me matches, but not the paper.

It’s Daddy’s fault for not being home and making my lunch. He makes food so hot, I have to take a million tiny slow bites so my mouth doesn’t melt. And …. He gives me so much ketchup, it looks like a crime scene, but it makes the food slide down my throat.

But mostly it’s Daddy’s fault since Mommy always says she’s always right.

And there’s no way they’ll let me enter any hotdog eating contests. My life is over.

Everything I know about being a parent to a child with down syndrome….. (Mom took over!)


Here it is:

”          “

I don’t know anything about being a parent to a child with down syndrome. I can’t tell you about parenting: a son with a lazy eye, a daughter with my sarcasm or a son who is an open nerve. BUT…..I do know…..

Beyond food, shelter and clothing, children need love, understanding, patience and guidance. It’s a parent’s job to help their children reach their full potential. Whatever that may be.

Back to School (….Where oh where did my break go?)


Seriously?

It’s time for school again.

I thought that break thing was permanent.

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 007

Uh mommy……I really think this tire is going to be lonely if I leave.

What? You don’t care?

Just give me a minute mommy. I need time with my tire.

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 010

Dear God, up in the sky…..my mommy doesn’t understand. Please give her the brains she needs. Also…..can you make sure my tire is safe during this cold time and is not too lonely when I am being made to go to school? Maybe you could do something, like make it super cold tomorrow so school is closed and I don’t have to leave my tire again. Just think about it. I know you are busy trying to fix my brothers and sister, but if you have time……. And…..don’t forget my mommy’s brains. I heard she lost her mind. That’s the word around the house. Please help with that too. Thanks God.

AMEN……

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 011

I’m ready, but I’m not happy.

And…..Are you sure you’re taking me straight to school? My left hand is tucked into my coat again. You aren’t going to take me to the corner to get money again………are you?

Be honest mommy. I might need to pray again.

Justice Back to School Jan 2014 015

(UPDATE: Thanks for making it super cold. School is closed tomorrow.)

Sammy the Elf pays Justice a visit.


What is that? Who is here? What do I see?

Elf1

It’s a strange little boy looking back at me.

elf3

Are those pants? Are those legs? Is it a suit?

elf4

How do you potty? How do you toot?

elf5

You frighten me with your strange lack of parts.

elf6

I can’t trust a dude who doesn’t fart.

elf7

Sammy: I’ve been thrown and I can’t get up.

elf8

I’m not leaving this tree. That kid’s too rough.

Stuffing and Stuff


I know you missed me. I’m sorry.

We took a break for the stuffy-stuff holidays. You know….the day to stuff your face and then all the stuff that comes after you stuff your face to celebrate getting stuff. And I’m really scared of Fridays now. At least one of them. I didn’t know we had a crazy shopper day. Some traditions are really silly. Mommy and daddy kept me home safe.

Well….You didn’t miss too much.

Here I am taking a pre-nap before I eat my Thanksgiving meal. It must have helped because I was moving fire after I ate. I think mommy called it “hell on wheels”. Whatever!

T1

Then I went outside to play with my shadow.

T2

Then I talked to a tree.

T3

Then I played football with my brother. I let him think he tackled me.

T4

Moving on to some Christmas decorating. I’m helping my sister with the tree. See me making that wood garland dance?  I should be a snake charmer.

C1

Okay……Maybe I’m not exactly helping her.

C2

Yeah….I didn’t like where she put that.

C3

Oh my goodness. Are you seeing these powers?

Look at that throw. Look at the garland standing up in the air. I really need to go to Vegas and have my own show.

C4

Looks like it’s back to the business of decorating. She’s so serious.

C5

Wait! Is she judging me? I can feel her eyes on me. Clearly she’s close-minded. Garland can go vertical.

C6

Look at that. Almost perfect.

C7

Oh good. There’s more. I don’t want this spot to look bare.

C8

So……Sorry if you missed me. I’m still in school. I don’t see myself dropping out yet. I still eat, drink, sleep, poop and wreak havoc on my family. But….you might not be seeing my handsome face every day or even every other day. Times are getting crazy and between you and me…I think my mommy is becoming a slacker. Seriously….She stays home….How busy can she be?

Hoops With My Homey


So…..Here’s a little taste of what I did yesterday after speech therapy. And my therapy…….I rocked it by the way, saying all kinds of cool things like pop, bubble, ball and beep beep. I also signed the word play. 

I know. I know. Don’t hate!

Well…..mommy and daddy took me to play. Here’s a nibble.

My Day On Social Media


Okay…..Let’s see what’s going on with the internet today.

What? Mommy and her friends are trying to be cool making duck-lip selfies. Old people are crazy!

I can do better.

How you like them duck-lips?

Justice Day 41 Computer 021

I just laughed so hard I farted.

“Here’s a list of things you may not know about me.”…..What kind of status is that? If people wanna know things they ask. Someone’s trying too hard.

Oh snap! Miley Cyrus bleached her eyebrows.

HAHAHA….. I’m gonna pee myself. I never knew a daddy ripping up newspaper was so hilarious.That baby is going bonkers.

Oh no she didn’t!

Now how do I make that smiley face thing? I just don’t understand how people make all those crazy symbols. I’m so behind with technology.

What? There’s an event I wasn’t invited to?

I see the pictures! You can’t deny it happened.

And…Why won’t you ever like my Facebook status???

I so hacked my sister’s account. This is gonna be awesome.

And…..

I’m defriending you and you and you….well…I’m blocking you.

Hmmmmm. I might have to rethink my political allegiance.

She’s fixing THAT for dinner??!! YUCK!” I don’t believe for five seconds her kids liked it like she said. Maybe the doggie did.

Dudes need action! (Day: 40)


After missing time for being sick……I had to go back to school today. We had pancakes for lunch so that was pretty cool. What was even cooler…..my mommy and daddy brought me and my wife to the park.

Here I am swinging with the ball and chain. We were having a good time….at first. Then she started talking about wanting new clothes and why don’t I have a job.

Justice Jules at Park 016

I was sinking deeper and deeper into darkness. I just wanted to throw a toy at myself….over and over.

Justice Jules at Park 028

For a little bit…I thought about jumping from the swing….just to make it all stop.

Justice Jules at Park 029

Then I remembered I was a dude. And dudes don’t drop out of swings just because girls are hassling them. Dudes act crazy and find excitement.

I can’t drive…..so I decided to go fast on the slide instead.

Justice Jules at Park 067

Look at me! No hands.

Justice Jules at Park 068

Oh poopy! No one is here to catch me!

Justice Jules at Park 069

I can’t go rock climbing, but this looks easy.

Justice Jules at Park 075

Hmmm…..Not too bad.

Justice Jules at Park 079

Should my foot be on this bar or the one under it?

Justice Jules at Park 080

Shitake mushroom! Mommy! Daddy! I need a little help here.

Justice Jules at Park 081

LESSON OF THE DAY:

Be the dude that you are and don’t swing with your wife. It’s not as much fun as it might seem.
