Ahh... The joys of motherhood... Wait, what?

No, I don't have a child. I promise.
Let me just explain myself.
For my AP Psychology class, we were required to carry around a raw egg for 10 days. It was... Interesting, to say the least. One of the first things I realized is that, my goodness... It's difficult to bring something with you everywhere you go. Especially when that something (someone) is small enough to be overlooked, required to be watched by someone at all times, and- the worst part- very, VERY breakable. I was so sure I was going to crack the thing on the first day. Anyway, if we wanted extra credit, we could make a scrapbook. So, I did! I think it turned out pretty cute. :)
My child had a pretty sad story. He was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome, and then died of congenital heart failure at the age of 21. Depressing, right? But he had a pretty good life. His Down's syndrome was very mild. He played football in high school, and was known for being a great friend. He also got married to the love of his life, and experienced a little bit of college before he died. He was a professional Jazz pianist with a platinum album and he played the trumpet too (he was a prodigy with both from the very beginning). Mmm... I can dream, right? Anyway, I'd just like to make it clear that if I do have a child with Down's, I will love that child just as much as I would a child without it. A disability will not make him or her less my child.
Down's or no Down's, I'm pretty sure I won't have any child for at least 5 years... So there's still time to prepare. Haha. :)


  1. I love your baby scrapbook Kira! Your egg was cute also :-) I liked his little binky!

  2. Thanks Michelle! :) I had a little too much fun making it, I think. :) As well as his little face! It was a fun project.
