Ballastexistenz has a great post today about "happy dances". Many of us have children who dance happily, each in their own unique way. Like Ballast, I have had doctors and school folks tell me that this behavior is something that needs to be extinquished or at least controlled. I disagree, and choose to celebrate the times when Ashley is happy and expressing herself, regardless of the form it may take.
Please take a moment to read the post on Ballastexistenz as well as the comments that her readers have left. Both things are celebrations of unique spirits, spirits I am grateful to know.
