I haaaate that word. I have a friend who does it ALL THE TIME. I catch it whenever she does it, but she does it out of habit. So annoying. Definitely one of my pet peeves. One of my best friends has a sister with Downs Syndrome, so it's frustrating to me when people use the word in such silly ways or to put people down.

I also get frustrated when I hear people use this word. My DH is guilty of it at times and each time I have to remind him not to use it. I really don't want Sophia to eventually pick that habit up.

I had two uncles with downs and growing up in a small town the R word was used a lot. I do not like it and DH uses it alot. He now has DS1 using it and I am trying to get them both to stop.
