Blog? What Blog?

So here's to New Year's resolutions that usually fade out about February. I'm going for it, and want to make a goal to post here at least once a month. The kids are all growing up so fast and they change every day. Anything I can do to remember these times and hold onto these sweet moments will be well worth it! Moments like going through a certain boy's backpack and finding a beautifully drawn picture with the words "babis eat from booboos" as the caption. It's going to be a great year!

The "R" Word

So I am diving into a post that I have been thinking about and losing sleep over for a long time now. My intentions are not to jump on my high horse and preach about things even foreign to me. My intentions are to bring awareness to those around me who love me and my family and to start making the changes in our small corner of the world that my daughter was sent here to make. The truth is...the word "retarded" is offensive to many people with special needs. I'm not gonna lie...I have used this word as slang before and never saw too much harm in it. However, things are different now and I am asking if we could all try a little harder to be sensitive to those around us. What if we all taught our kids who then could teach their kids who could teach their friends...what a difference we could make. I am so grateful to live in a community with such loving people who are supportive and encouraging. Lets spread the word....but not the "R" word. :)
