Joinin' the Virtual Party

Well, well, I just found out about the 5th annual Ultimate Blog Party 2011 which 5 Minutes for Mom is putting on. I thought I would join in on it, since it sounds like a fun, easy way to get more blog exposure & visit other blogs. (As well as possibly win some door prizes.)

So, here we go!

I've heard about 5 Minutes for Mom before, because of their co-blog, 5 Minutes for Special Needs. Tammy & Parker (her blog is down right now) are one of the contributors to the 5 Minutes for Special Needs blog. I've mentioned Tammy & Parker before in this post, because of Parker's other special needs that are not related to Down syndrome.

I think our blog would go under the category of "Specialty Blogs." It's not exactly an everyday occurance to find a blog written by a girl who's in a family of 13, on a 44 acre ranch, with a little brother with Down syndrome and who has a load of food allergies/intolerances in her family!

This blog is written, just as the title explains to share what we have learned over the 6 years since O has been in our family. And since our journey with Down syndrome started.

The oldest of 11, that's insane! (In a good way.) Glad to have found you, I'm here from UBP11. I'm sure O is very special to you.

Hope you'll stop by my place:

Stopping by from the UBP and finding this an interesting place to visit. My granddaughter is on the autism spectrum so your idea for this blog definitely interests me.
