  1. I guess I will have to wait for the publication…
    “sign-up form here, and every day, a name will be picked at random. U.S., Canada, and U.K. only” (from the Netherlands)

  2. My days are focused around nurturing my son who has severe cerebral palsy and is non-verbal. He attends mainstream school where he’s the only child with such visible differences. This is a wonderful mindset to help build his resilience. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ha! I love this! It reminds me of a Pogues song Fairytale of New York –
    “I could have been someone.
    Well so could anyone.”
    Thanks for making me laugh on a Monday morning!

  4. Hee hee! “Unique” is one of my most hated words. I think it’s so overused and meaningless. I like thinking that no one is special. If someone else can do something, then so can I! It’s empowering to give up on the idea of uniqueness.
