me: "Ella look at me."
"no, not at bubba, at me."
"okay, now OPEN your eyes."
**sigh** "forget it, do whatever you want."
Hunter: "FUNNY FACE!!!"
Well, Happy World Down Syndrome Day anyhow : ) Hunter asked to wear his Buddy Walk shirt "the one with Ella's face on it," to school today after hearing me tell Chris on Sunday that it would be Ds day tomorrow. I asked him if he was sure he wanted to wear that one, he could always just wear the one that says Buddy Walk. (He is very against anything that may be girly or that he could possibly get made fun of in, and I thought perhaps wearing a picture of a girl on your shirt could lead to that.) Hunter says "well all of my friends think that my sister is really cute," I said okay...but if anyone asks you why you are wearing it you can tell them that it's World Down Syndrome Day and that your sister has Down syndrome. He says "Uh, yeah. They all know that already." Oh...didn't realize it was a topic of conversation amongst 1st graders : ) I sure love my boy!!!
Today I am grateful for that little extra something in my life!!!
