  1. Dexter's at #3, this week. This post is about the bad days, the lonely days, the frustrating days... and Dexter's quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Some days are harder than others. Happy weekend, everyone.

  2. I've been struggling with being a carer again recently, so it was time for a bit of self-therapy! Thanks for the opportunity to share x

  3. Thanks Ellen I linked to the post about the two month anniversary of my campaign hopefully reading it will make people realize that the lives of the "disabled" don't revolve around their "disabilities".

  4. Hi Ellen - Thanks, as always! And I apologize for posting twice - I didn't think it worked the first time!

  5. I bought a pie--a whole pie!!--to snack on while reading fabulous blog posts and sipping coffee this weekend. I'll happily share!!

    Thank you again, Ellen!!

  6. I just posted a link to a post about sharing the fabulousness (- or just the lack of suffering, perhaps?) of our kids with disabilities to medical professionals. A fantastic campaign spearheaded by DSDN. I don't know if you've promoted this already or not on Parents and stuff, but it's a really good idea.

    And! I left this long comment about the guest post you had (- Oprah/retarded/Special Ed) but because I'm typing while boondocking in Mexico (with a portable modem no less), I think it got wiped out.

    I just wanted to say that I appreciated the post - she did a great job about calling attention to what she said that she shouldn't have. Oprah and Iyanla (sp?) do a lot of good, but that's hurtful.

    And. You made me bust out laughing over that knickers comment. You rock, Ellen!

  7. I just linked up some grocery shopping tips when you have a little or big one with special needs. 18yrs of experience. Add your tips by comment on the blog post!

  8. 49. Just posted this very sad news about the loss of a vibrant disability advocate who in her own way, had a lot to teach everyone about growing up disabled.

  9. I'm the girl who was in the handicap stall...I'll be honest, I was playing a game on my phone while using the bathroom. I like the times of day I get to just sit down, even if it's in the bathroom!!

    I was caught off-guard when I saw you and your son. I didn't expect someone who needed the stall would come in, especially since like you said it was so empty !!

    1. Thank you for your honesty. Next time, find a bench in a quiet area to sit down on if you are not using a toilet for the process of elimination. I hope you learn more about public etiquette from this experience.


Thanks for sharing!
