"Y'all - don't miss it. Don't get so caught up in what your sweet baby is doing or not doing. Don't obsess about this step or the next step or the one after that or what is going to happen twenty years down the line. Because one day you'll look at baby pictures and think about how adorable that baby was and how all you can remember is therapy and you can't even remember what her hair smelled like. So, ENJOY your baby. It doesn't matter when they walk or crawl or talk. It matters that they are here and that you love them and that they know it. Just don't miss it."
A while back, I was approached by Penelope Przekop, an author and artist. Penelope also blogs. Her blog is called Aberration Nation, and it's all about aberrations, differences, diversity. She heard about me and my crazy life through a friend and asked if I would be willing to be interviewed for her blog for an upcoming segment she's doing on teen aberration stories. I said yes, and proceeded to spill in writing. My interview is going to appear on her site in three parts, beginning next week, so please keep your eyes peeled for it. Here's a plug on her blog for the upcoming interviews: http://penelopeprzekop.blogspot.com/2009/06/ya-author-melissa-walker-invites-you.html
On July 7, 2008 our sixth child, Finnian, was born at home into loving hands. Shortly after he was born, we learned that he has Down syndrome. This is the ongoing story of how our family is being transformed by this little boy.
Hi! I'm Lisa, a 40-something Wonder Mom to six kiddos: Kevin (14), Joey (9), twins, Annabelle and Daisy (6), Lilah (4) and Finnian (3). Oh, and my husband is the multi-talented Michael. He tries to keep me in check, but I just keep on writing.
