5 Reasons I Smile

The ultimate goal of this blog is to spread awareness and show how beautiful life can be. We have four amazing daughters. Our youngest was born with Down syndrome. If just one person stops here and leaves with a different, better perspective about Down syndrome, then it is worth it. Regardless, I have 5 Reasons to Smile!

Monday, after Spring Break

Back to the grind. Before any of my girls hit school age a friend informed me of how drastically my life would change once they did. She was right. First, we are confined (for the most part) Monday-Friday. No more weekday trips to the zoo, beach or lunch in the park. They are gone 6 hours a day - 5 days a week. Second, I miss them.


  1. Oh I know...my second is starting in the Fall and I will miss him too...it's bittersweet...

  2. It is bittersweet. Quite the adjustment! Mine is getting ready to start kindergarten and I don't know how to feel about it. At least it's just for three hours a day but it's EVERY day. They grow up too fast :(
