Day 13: Did You Know? Emotions.

By Jess

People with Down Syndrome are not always happy. They have the same range of emotions the rest of us have. Tantrums and tears, excitement or sadness, happiness and shyness.

Exactly right. Because every single human being is unique and has their own character and personality. Frida is generally pretty chilled but shouts when she doesn’t get something quickly enough or if someone annoys her and absolutely loses it when she gets in a bath or is overtired. We are enjoying a huge amount of smiles and a lot of chatting but I don’t think she’d last long in our house if she didn’t learn quickly how to assert herself.
