I asked Scott to get her bed ready last night (she fell asleep on me). He came up to me after going in there, real serious like: “there is either pudding or poop on her sheets and idk which one it is”. To which I responded “did you smell it?”. I wish I could have taken a pic of that face he gave me. (It was in fact her favorite chocolate whipped yogurt). 😂 .
Also please please consider donating to Flick’s Buddy Walk team. It’s for such a good cause and directly helps her with programs like speech groups and tutoring when she’s older. Link in my stories. We would be so grateful!!!
💗 HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL 💗
We can’t believe you have been in our lives for a whole year!! You’ve bought Daddy and I so much happiness and there are no words to explain just how much we love you!!
You’re so incredibly special and have taught us so many life lessons...we are so blessed that you chose us to be your parents! We love you unconditionally Willow Grace 🎂 #willowturnsone
Look who started 4th grade yesterday!😳👏 .
Jayne was so excited and ready for school to start again! She had her back pack ready days ahead of time and has been telling people who her teacher is for weeks. I love how excited she is but the start of another year brings with it a lot of worry and anxiety for me too. I can’t help but wonder at times if we made the right decision to mainstream her again? Is the academic gap getting too wide? Will the other kids still be nice to her? Will she have someone to sit by at lunch and play with at recess? Will she listen to her teacher? Will her teacher really “see” Jayne, what an amazing little girl she is and want to help her to succeed? These questions have been running through my mind the past week. .
And then the night before school started, I got an email from Jayne’s teacher, telling me how excited she was to get to know Jayne. 😭She said that she knew Jayne had some IEP goals she was working on but wondered if there were any other areas, where we would like to see success that she could help with. She noticed at back to school night that I reminded Jayne to look people in the eye and said she would be happy to follow up with that. 👏 She has no idea what her words meant to me. That simple email calmed my fears and helped me to know that Jayne is in good hands. Her teacher truly wants to help her and that means the world! #teachersmakeallthedifference .
And just in case you were wondering😉, cute Jayne came through the door after school, with a big smile on her face and a phone number of a friend who wants to play😍. Yep! We’re off to a good start!🙏 ♥️

So last night I had an Amazing opportunity to see an advanced screening of The Peanut Butter Falcon, @peanutbutterfalcon provided by the Florida Down Syndrome Foundation.
I wanted to take time to reflect all my thoughts on this film and not base it off the pure excitement of seeing it. I opted to take my 9 year old daughter, Olivia instead of my 11 year old son, Pasha.
I’ve said multiple times that Sibling Advocacy is so very important and her reactions to this movie completely solidify that. She asked questions like, “what does retarded mean?”, she shed a few small tears, Happy tears, and cheered this movie on. She needs to know these things happen so that she is prepared to face them head on. To stand up for others in the face of bullies.
The Peanut Butter Falcon was amazing. Plain. Simple. Amazing. I wanted to make sure I felt that way and not only because Im a Momma in her feelings.
Zach Gottsagen’s character is a gem. He is funny, witty, sincere. Shia LeBeouf’s, character Tyler is a genuine man in need of a friend and he finds that. Dakota Johnson is the Mother figure we all know we are. Afraid at times to see what our children really are capable of.
I would sincerely recommend this movie to everyone. Language is a little strong at times, but I don’t feel it went overboard.
The use of the dreaded “R” word is there. Do I hate it? Yes. Do I know it’s used daily by ignorant people? Yes.
The soundtrack is on point! It definitely captures the Indie vibe for me, which I love! No cheesey, big Hollywood, over hyped crap in their film.
For me it was a love story. Love grows in all different ways. It doesn’t have a specific look or way about it. It grows organically.
Final Verdict: Go See It!
Ivana vs Pirulin 🐶
De todos mis juguetes me gustan más los de mi hermanito perruno, ya no quiero ni que me carguen... quiero estar en el piso jugando con el 😄 (es que ya gateo 😎) y le gano siempre
Mi mamá por otro lado nos va a desgastar los nombres, porque a mi no me da miedo y piru se le olvida que soy chiquita 😅

Olahraga sekaligus belajar mengenal tumbuhan dan berinteraksi dengan sekitar, mengapa tidak?
Outing kali ini kami mengenal sayur-sayuran, berkeliling sawah, menyapa petani dan melihat bagaimana padi ditanam di sepanjang jogging track yang kami lalui.
Badan bugar dan ilmu bertambah. 🤗

Si me dieran a elegir una vez más
Te elegiría sin pensarlo
Es que no hay nada que pensar
Que no existe ni motivo, ni razón
Para dudarlo ni un segundo
Porque tú has sido lo mejor, que tocó este corazón
Y que entre el cielo y tú yo me quedo contigo. 🎼❤️#theluckyfew #downsyndrome

My mom only remembers my daughter. She kept asking me today who I was and why was I with her granddaughter.
However, she also thinks she does not have any children and just returned from Greece. When it comes to Alzheimer’s, I have learned to find the silver linings.
The one person that needs my mother to remember her is my daughter.
My mother always dreamed of traveling but never did. She now has these vivid memories of traveling to places she has never traveled to.
She believes she has never had children- which is good since out of 5 kids, I am the only who has visited her for the two and half years.
She told Kayleigh she cries every time she leaves but she is so happy each time we arrive.
She has looked at Kayleigh’s book she wrote every night and loves hearing about Kayleigh’s races. We are blessed. [credit: @seweagles91] #alzheimersawareness#faceofalzheimers#downsyndrome#rockingthatextrachromosome#alzheimersdaughter#alzheimersgranddaughter#daughtersofdementia
