“I love children with Down Syndrome, they are always happy!”
How many times have we all heard that?
I have some pretty good proof that children with Down Syndrome, especially ones who go by the name of Caroline Josephine, are not always happy.
Let’s take this weekend for example…. Not happy when she woke up with an empty belly and MJ carried her right past the kitchen and upstairs to the other bedroom, funny how her crying only stopped when MJ stopped in front of the fridge.
Not happy when she heard someone cooking dinner in the kitchen and then coming into the living room without food for her!
Not happy when I put her in the stroller while I was coaching Brady’s soccer team! However, she was very happy when I held her while we practiced passing with the team.
Not very happy when she received her two drops of “pink eye” medicine into her eyes this weekend.
Not even close to being happy when she received her ear drops, for her ear infection, in her ears this weekend.
So while she may not always be happy…….
I love my child who is blessed with Down Syndrome.
