Duncan likes to look at this blog, in particular at his pictures, films and photos. He cuddled beside me just now as I clicked onto the archives for November looking for the link to my "Flying Virgin" post. He smiled at the photo of him sleeping next to me and said, "Mummy is holding Duncan. Mummy is keeping Duncan safe and Duncan is happy on the Virgin aeroplane."
Oh boy, he melts my heart. Being with this amazing child is the antidote to the vicious disablism evident in the comments on a CiF piece in the Guardian yesterday. By the time I read it there were 125 comments so I couldn't even be bothered to address the cruel misunderstandings and insults. Bah.
On another topic, Thomas and Lady both received good news at their gymnastics class yesterday. Both were complimented by a senior coach and advised to change to more advanced classes for children with particular talent and potential. Thomas reckons he'll be an Olympian in time, whereas Lady is just pleased that her dream of getting better at the sport she loves is coming true.
