Just wanted to make sure I updated everyone in case there are readers who aren't on Facebook.
First, and foremost in my thoughts, this is a very emotional week for the Saylor family so I'm thinking of them often. A group of us will be posting and tweeting on Thursday, the 9th which would have been Ethan's birthday. We'll be using the hashtag #Toast4Ethan and talking about why we love someone who has Down syndrome and about Ethan's life and legacy.
Also, I just had my first article published by IDSC! I got the awesome chance to talk to Christian Royal's Mom, Helen and had such an amazing conversation that I couldn't fit it into just one article. So, I wrote two. You can read about my more person reactions to that talk on my other blog.
On top of all that, I've been working with Gail Zahtz and learning TONS about health/design, social media, building communities - and even some technical software stuff ! You can check out the new site I'm working on for her at ALifeGuide.com Join us for a Twitter chat or BlogTalk Interview! You never know what you'll learn.
So... I need a LONG nap...
But first - I'll share today's "Joshism"
It never hurts to encourage you kid...
Josh has been playing his Playstation 24/7 since he got it for Christmas. No surprise, it has started to cut off randomly - either from overheating or just some cosmic way of saying "Take a break Dude!" I can hear him say things like, "Again. That's okay, I'll fix it."
So I said to him today that I was so proud of him and how he handled his frustration. That he was being very adult by staying calm and not "throwing a fit." He laughed and ate it up.
A little while later he tells me that he accidentally spilled the cat's water bowl and "in his head" he got "a little angry" and "some cuss words" might have "slipped out."
First, I asked him if he had cleaned it up. "Yes" he said. "Okay then, accidents happen" I told him.
In typical Josh form, he went on and on about the story. "I said the D word" he confessed. "Yeah, that's probably the one I would have used too" (can't lie when he's being so honest)
Gotta Love Him!
