I love our Down syndrome families because besides being rad people, they are a community of folks who "get it".
With all the sibs there too there were 11 kids, 5 of whom had DS. Strangely enough, of the 11 kids, only one of them is a boy. All of our families are filled with girls.
I love statistical anomalies.
Because my aide is an identical twin, I am an identical twin and P's sisters are identical twins too, there are lots of times where the ID twins in the room out number the singletons. Pretty neat when only .3% of all births are ID twins.
But almost half of P's party consisted of kids with DS. That's pretty awesome.
We met at a McDonalds with a play land which meant I didn't have to plan any games, and I didn't have to clean up afterwards :)
And all the kids liked their happy meals and got to run around and have fun before cake time. It was a huge success.
