Inspired by the 31for21 Down Syndrome Blog Challenge and happiness-project.com, I began this blog in pursuit of my own happiness while raising my 3 children -- including identical twins with Down syndrome. On these pages, I endeavor to document the bits and pieces of my life that bring me the most happiness and keep me focused on all the positive stuff going on.
Advocacy, Angels and Random Happy Thoughts. These are the threads of happiness that are inextricably woven through the cloth of my life. Staying focused and writing about these things is what keeps me Walking on the Happy Side of Life. I'd love it if you would "Take A Walk on the Happy Side" with me.

OUCH!!!! Doesn’t that just “buzz your butt” (make you cringe)? Literally, 5 minutes later! Wonder how the boys are going to feel about loose teeth and losing teeth? Or me, for that matter? I mean, with Down syndrome, it’s taken … Continue reading
