Get It Down; 31 for 21

I'm so pleased to take part in 31 for 21 again this year. It's brought me out of my blogging funk! Since Ruby was born I just have not made it a priority. Click on the Get It Down logo to find loads of other bloggers who are taking the same 31 for 21 challenge.

Ralph and Ruby are actually both sleeping right now. This never happens. So I have time to write...



I think of grand blog posts when I'm busy doing the dishes or folding laundry or nursing the baby. I think of funny ones, informative ones, thought provoking ones and so on. Right now I got nothing. Life is really pretty boring right now if you boil it all down. 

And that is nice.

These are the days when I hardly even think about Down Syndrome. Ralph is just a regular two year old kid. He gets into stuff. He throws his food on the floor. He rips his diaper off at every opportunity. He's not that happy about taking naps anymore.

There is no oxygen concentrator sitting in the corner. No tanks to knock over and chip the tile. No tubing to trip on. No sat monitors to keep an eye on all night long. No breathing treatments every 3-4 hours around the clock, for now anyway.


I don't take this for granted. Drama? Been there, done that. I like boring better.

Barbara, I'm not sure I have the brain power to enter your contest. But, nevertheless I am working on something!

Regina, boring = good, huh?

Beverly, thanks!
