The boys and I came down with the flu over the weekend...and let me tell you it is not pretty! I could hardly do anything except sleep for the first two days, and even now, I'm still exhausted after doing any little thing. It is pure misery. I shouldn't complain because I hardly ever get sick, so it was probably my turn. But, I've put in my time and been sick for almost a week now, can my turn be over yet??
I'm a Midwestern girl who's lived in Missouri, Utah, Missouri again, Nebraska, Mississippi and Iowa. This is my story of life with my farmer-turned-professor husband, two exceptional little boys, and one extraordinary little girl who happens to have Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. The stories you are about to read are all real; I couldn't make it up if I tried.
