My Journal - Week 81 (19Mar11)
The title you know... or hopefully so! It's the title of our blog, it's the title of my upcoming newest book (that has been in the works the longest) and it's also the title of the Analogy I had written way way back when - when Hunter was just a peanut in my womb.
Back when I first started writing, or rather when I first started "really" writing I wrote the analogy that has come to be the "token" part of my blog, books and other things Down syndrome. I had it copyrighted, I also had it published in a few places such as online in association websites and my personal works. I had gone a few steps further (back in 2009) and reached out to a few magazines and newspapers - looking and hoping that they would like to publish the analogy as part of a story or single article submission. Two different magazine companies eventually got back to me and told me that they would be happy to publish my analogy. One of those magazines was "Exceptional Families". This is a magazine that no parent who has a child with any type of need should be without. The editor contacted me and the rigorous work of getting my story into an edition was born. After many edits, photos and emails, my story hit the press just in time for the Spring 2011 edition - Volume 6, No.3.
I am so very proud to present, my two page spread of "Welcome to Our House - An Analogy" in print.

On other fronts, I have not been taking as many photos as I usually do of Mr. Hunter-bunny so I decided to post a few today that I had taken this past week.
|Yummy Mommy! I didn't know that peas and broccoli could taste so good!
|Yes, it's true - Mommy actually made Daddy take a picture of my dinner....
|Now that I am all done eating, it's time for a photo shoot of course!
|And for the first time I discovered Mommy's tummy is bigger than my own!
Hope to keep you all posted as things progress.
