“Mommy, You’re Different”
Yesterday Ricki caught two spelling mistakes (in Hebrew) that I had made. I am a terrible speller in English (I LOVE spellcheck!), and I fare considerably worse in Hebrew. So more than once my daughter Ricki (yes, my daughter with Down syndrome), has managed to catch my bloopers. Yesterday, having caught me with TWO mistakes, she turned to me and said: “Mom, You are Different”. Now was that a compliment? I guess she wants me to go for remedial work in spelling. Well, maybe I need it. I have “Americani syndrome”.
