Amanda on Current Events

Today is Amanda’s birthday so I came up to spend some time with her. She is sitting her watching me type on the laptop, and she asks, “What do you think of Sarah
Palin? Did you hear she has a Down’s Syndrome baby?”

“Yeah, that’s nice for her. But would you want Mom to be president?”

“Vice president,” she corrects me.

“Okay, well would you want Mom for vice president? SHE had a Down’s syndrome
baby. Does that qualify HER?”

She pauses for a moment. “I see your point.”


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
