Even if I had known at the beginning of the week, I already missed doing a daily post by missing Tuesday. I admit I felt a little off-kilter not writing, even though I know I was looking forward to the blogging break after the 31 for 21 challenge.
I think I am feeling a little guilty about not being part of the Canadian challenge, since I am 3/4 Canadian. At least I think that's right. My mum is Canadian and my dad is half Canadian. Yeah, 3/4, that's right. Does it make me any more Canadian that I was actually born in Canada too? And what does that make the Beanie girl? 3/8 Canadian? Not sure that my high school math skills are up to thinking about fractions right now.
The Canadian in me comes out when I say "mum" instead of "mom" and say "eh" at the ends of my sentences. But even though I was born in Canada, I've spent 26 of my almost 34 years in the States. When in Canada people call me American. And here I get called Canadian.
Some of my favorites things about Canada are all the family members we have who live there. Why, Miss Cora has even been there twice already. So I guess in that respect we've already been contributing to Ds awareness.
So hello out there to my fellow Canadians! This 3/4 Canadian and her 3/8 Canadian little Bean want to promote awareness for Down syndrome. Even if we don't blog every day for the rest of the week...
