Does She or Doesn't She?
No it's not an old Clairol commercial. I know I've never said to a stranger that Jack has Ds when they have commented on my pregnancy. There was another lady, right behind us in the check out at Costco today. It's still so briefly that I've known about Jack having Ds, I can't believe I was even considering my next move. Her daughter looked to be a teenager, and I kept wondering, does she? And then she smiled at me! And she does! I smiled back and when her mother came closer to me I asked her discreetly if her daughter had Ds. She said yes and I patted my baby bump and said that we were having a baby in November with Ds. A boy. She brightened and said, "It's never dull - it's always an adventure and you're going to be amazed!" She was old enough to be my mother, and the smile she gave me was nothing short of stunningly beautiful. She was happy. Her daughter was happy. And they made me happy!
