Big sis was talking yesterday about how her friends at school don't like my buddy. I asked her why she thought that. She told me one of her friends called him cuckoo. Big sis told her friends that he has Down syndrome, but they didn't know what that meant and she didn't know how to explain it. They tease her at lunch because he always comes over and wants to sit with her and the para has to lead him back to his table. When he sees her in the hallway, he gives her a big hug/tackle to the ground.

Big sis said, "He is cuckoo-funny but not the kind of cuckoo she meant." I asked her how it made her feel when her friend said that about her brother. Sad.

Yeah, me too.
