This month in the blogosphere an event is taking place called 31 for 21.

October is Down syndrome awareness month. There are 31 days in October. Down syndrome is caused by having an extra 21st chromosome, so hence the number 21. There are lots of great bloggers out there taking the challenge to write for 31 days straight and raise awareness about Down syndrome. Two of my favorites participating in this event are:

Results Not Typical: The adventures of adorable, feisty 5 year-old Playette and her hilarious mother.

Baxter Sez: The activisim, wisdom, music, and laughter of the Piepmeier/Biffle parents and their four year-old daughter, Maybelle.

Or just google the term, “31 for 21,” preferably when you can afford to be distracted for awhile.
