After all, fecal smearing and sleep deprivation is not at all funny when you're right smack dab in the middle of it.
I checked my stats two days later and found I had over 50,000 hits to my blog for that one post so I figured if my readers liked it that much I might as well try my hand at another set.
BOOM! Another 50,000 hits.
By the third blog post I had friends and fellow special needs parents emailing me and suggesting other topics for Ryan to cover. I realized then the only diagnosis I really knew a lot about was autism and so making an attempt to describe raising children with down syndrome or cerebral palsy might not be the best idea. The last thing I wanted to do was offend anyone.
As we all know there ain't no drama like blogger drama and there was no way I was going to voluntarily step in that ring.
So, I opened the meme up to all of you...my friends, fellow special needs moms, and even a couple guys who took the idea and made it something really spectacular.
And I could not be more thrilled with the responses we have received.
I'm not sure how long I'll keep this meme going but for now I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for playing along and for giving me one helluva good laugh every Friday.
This is what community is all about and I'm proud to be a part of this one.
Thanks for taking care of that for me, Ryan.
I know just the one I want you to press, Ryan.
Can you order me a gallon of hummus while you're at it?
I'm sorta addicted.
I can't wait to see what all of you come up with this week. It's a holiday weekend so everyone be safe and remember...
Hot dogs, cheeseburgers, coleslaw, potato salad, and your Aunt Edna's jello surprise is good for you!
