I am the Momma of 8 children. Seven here on earth and 1 precious little Angel in Heaven. My children range in age from 2 months to 25 years. My 6 year old was born with a laundry list of complex medical conditions. He has Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome), a rare brain malformation, which resulted from a mutation of the PAX-6 gene, bilateral anophthalmia, which means that he was born without any eyes, so he is totally blind. At the age of 2 1/2 months old he had to have a tracheostomy to help aid in his breathing. He is hearing impaired, with normal hearing in his left ear and has profound deafness in his right. At 3 1/2 years he had surgery to have a Mic-Key button placed in his stomach (feeding Tube), which is mainly used to give him his medications. He also has insulin dependant diabetes and wears an insulin pump, which gives him a continuous dose of insulin. Even with his many dis"abilities," including being globally developmentally delayed, he has accomplished more than anyone would have ever believed that he could. Join us in our journey living with a Dis"Abled" child....

Old Age Or Sleep Deprivation

At some point I'm sure you have either read or heard of the Eco friendly household cleaning tips, like vinegar, lemons, hydrogen proxcide. Right?

I put off cleaning our upstairs bathroom for as long as possible. I admit I hate doing bathrooms. I had much rather wash dishes, which I also hate doing. They are both dirty jobs, but someone has to do these chores. So no more procrastinating, the job HAD to be completed.

I gathered the utility bucket, the broom, mop, and necessary cleaning supplies from the laundry area and downstairs hallway closet. And upstairs I went to tackle the dreaded job. I placed the cleaning supplies on the bathroom counter. I poured the cleaning solution into the toilet first, to give it time to do its job. I took out the trash, swept the floor and filled the bucket. Now where did I place my cleaning rag? No cleaning rag to be found anywhere.

But there was a container of Timmy's Boost Kid Essential on the bathroom counter. Hmmm, now what had I intended to clean with this?

Sleep deprivation or old age catching up on me?
