The Mommy in Me, My Message
Hey, my name is Paloma, and I am a single stay at home mother of one little girl named Regina. She is my world, and she happens to have Down Syndrome. This makes my...OUR world, a little bit more complicated. With that said, she is a wonderful little girl, first and foremost. I am starting this blog to show just how different each child, Down Syndrome or not, can be. Regina may be loving, but she also has other sides to her. The goofball, the adventurer, the gymnast, the bratty little kiddo, and the sweetie pie. I will also be talking about about everyday stresses that come with being a mother, single woman, dealing with crazy roommates, and a clueless landlord. We as parents need to find a common bond OTHER than our children, and need to identify what separates us from some parents as well as some childless people. We are individuals. All of us. Children, Parents, People in general. We must find something in ourselves that make us burst with joy when we are not with our kids. If we cannot find something that makes us that happy, then what happens when our children leave home and/or go to college? I hope that you're prepared for the crazy and bumpy ride that is my life, and could very well be just what you are going through at this very moment. so, how about it, are you ready?
