Sleeping lion

20 Jun 2014

When I was little, my parents would often find me asleep on the landing outside their bedroom door when they got up in a morning. I have vague memories of doing this and seem to remember taking my blanket with me so I wouldn’t get cold. I don’t know how long this nocturnal wandering phase lasted but I’m pretty happy sleeping in my bed these days.

For two or three mornings over the last couple of weeks, I’ve found this little munchkin fast asleep on the floor by her door gate. The scattering of books a little clue to what she’s been up to in the wee hours…

Not sure when she had got up or how long she’d been there but she seemed comfy enough.

Our first baby, Ella Mary, was born at the end of November 2010. We were shocked to find out soon after her birth that she has Down's Syndrome. I was determined from the start that Down's Syndrome will never define Ella or what she is able to do. We will provide for her everything she needs to become the child and the person she deserves to be. There will be hard times ahead.... there are already many hard times behind us. But I already know that the good times will always outweigh the hard times. She has taught me so much in such a short time and seeing life from a new perspective is a privilege that not many of us get the chance to experience.
