I'm out of ideas.
An author I adore, Amy Julia Becker, just wrote this great line:
"I wonder if there's any hope of entering an age with a new story, a story that isn't as dramatic ... a story that doesn't rely upon an entry point of grief, a story that doesn't need the tension of transformation."
That's what our story has become. And the truth is, it's not a very exciting story to most people these days. A story infused with humor because I have a toddler? Yes. A story of a good life that includes a child with Down syndrome? Yes.
But it's not dramatic right now. It was once, but it's not anymore.
And that is good.
October is nearly over. I'm going to try to write at least one more post about Down syndrome, but if I do, it will most likely be about specific learning and teaching techniques.
I keep blogging for the new mamas, and because my family likes photos of Ellie.
But truly, our life is boring. And that is good.
