All dressed up with nowhere to go….(not awake that is)


First of all: Did you miss me? I knew we’d make it back okay. And…..it was the same way we left, not by a rescue boat or plane. That would’ve been cool though.

Here we are…..so excited to leave. But why am I between two moving ships? I’m sure some disability protection act or something was really violated there.

Departure Baltimore

One night we got to dress up a little and go to the dining room.

This is my mommy and daddy.

Cruise Dining 1

Daddy hates this picture, but mommy posts anything she doesn’t hate of herself. See those eyebrows? In the car, on the way to the ship, she started tweezing. She forgot to take off the old powder/pencil stuff she had on. She thought she had more eyebrows than she really did. How silly!

After…..she looked like a sleepover prank gone wrong (..or right). They don’t make toupees for brows, so she had to pencil them in. Why does she get to draw on herself and I can’t? Grownups are so funny!

These are my crazy brothers and my insane sister. They wish they were as cute and popular as me. It was like Cheers. Everybody knew my name.

(But where am I?)

Dining 2

Well…..The night before I partied an itsy-bitsy-bit too much with this pirate I met. He was really friendly. He must have tweezed his moustache away, because he drew on his face too.

Party with Pirates

I wasn’t up for dining in my fancy clothes the next night.

Pirates are crazy!!!

Partied Out

And that green band is not a pass to drink Rum.

(WINK WINK)

 

To wipe or not to wipe? That is the question.


Justice and Wipes 001

Hey mommy! You know,

in a way, these are really MY wipes.

Justice and Wipes 002

Backtalk? You mean backend talk?

(Okay. Clearly, no sense of humor.  So now what?)

Justice and Wipes 004

I’m cleaning up mommy.

Justice and Wipes 005

(Ridiculous! She spends money on this other stuff.

She can’t buy me my own wipes?!!)

Justice and Wipes 009

There’s the last one. Safe and sound mommy.

Justice and Wipes 011

Look! I even shut the lid for you.

Justice and Wipes 007

(Now  I’m taking these with me, going in circles,

and confusing her with where I am. I’m not done with these yet.)

Justice Flagging Wipes 002

LOOK AT ME AT THE RACES! ARE YOU CARS READY!

Justice Flagging Wipes 003

ON YOUR MARK! GET SET!

Justice Flagging Wipes 004

GO!!!!!!

Justice Flagging Wipes 006

(I better put these back quick.)

Justice Flagging Wipes 005

(I get the feeling she’ll be needing these soon.)

World Down Syndrome Day 2013: Get down with Down Syndrome!

My siblings wore these cool shirts to school today.

They rock…….almost as much as me.

They also wore their crazy socks to raise awareness for down syndrome.

Lots of Socks is the theme today for World Down Syndrome Day!!!!

This is me getting ready to try my hand at art.

Before you ask: No. This is not for sale!

What my mom thinks when she thinks of me and down syndrome.


Okay. My mom has taken over today and she said she might do that more often now.

I guess I need to let her. She is my mom and all.

But secretly I’m saying: “No you didn’t take over my blog!”
