Do you find yourself wondering what "normal" really is?
How do you define "normal?"

I always find myself wondering what it is. I really don't have a definition of normal though. I mean Alexis seems normal at home (at least normal for her) but when she is next to kids her own age without all her disabilities, she is obviously delayed.

I really try hard not to define normal becuase it is so relative to each individual and I really don't like the term normal. kwim?

I agree! I get so tired of people who says, "Your kid can do that?" As if they are stagnat in their skills. Some people ask me if I feel bad because my ds isn't normal. I honestly can't figure out what they mean. I feel like asking if they consider their kid normal. I don't like that term either.
