Life lessons from a 13 yr old with Down syndrome:

Ciarra, waiting at the bus stop, is dancing like a robot. She dips her head nearly to her knees, bends her elbows at sharp angles, pivots, throws in a few Michael Jacksonish moves. I am watching out the window. "Ciarra, are you a robot?" "Yep!" Hear vehicles coming up the road "Ciarra, people are going to think you are pretty silly" (WHY do I care? shes alive, vibrant, happy, i REALLY want her to be more like ME? NOOO!!) "Its ok, Mom, Im just dancing. I dont even know their names." Meaning: Dont worry about it. I got this. What do *I* care what strangers think. Atta girl CB.
