Hi, I feel like SH!T today!! I went to pick up my daughter from nursery as usual but this time a friend of mine came with me (she wanted to walk actually and tagged along) anyway .. there is this little boy at my daughter's nursery who has down's syndrom ... we have 2 kids in my extended family with the same case so I absolutly understand every little detail about it ... plus .. I am a volenteer in my home country in one of the centers that help kids like him ... I love this boy to pieces!! he is ablsolutly adorable and my daughter loves him too ... she takes a flower to him everyday ... anyway ... the friend that was with me is kind of the curios type .. kinda nosey ... she was looking at the little boy and I was really scared that she would say or ask something that would hurt the boy or his mom .. so I just looked at her and told her (the boy is sick) <== in our language so the woman wouldnt understand .... when we left ... the woman and her son drove by us in the car and she spoke to us in our language (apparently she is from the same region we are from and understands our language) .. she said (you shoudl have waited till I left to tell your friend that my son is sick .. and by the way he isnt sick .. we are all sick and he isnt) .. i tried to explain to her that I didnt mean what I said and God knows what my intentions are ... i couldnt tell her that i wanted to prevent my friend from embarressing them and hurting the boy but i couldnt since my friend was right there beside me ... the woman just drive off ... I knwo how bad she feels cuz i have kids and if someone said something about them i woudl freak out!! but she doesnt know me and i didnt have a chance to explain myself!! ... the problem is it's already holiday now and i wont be able to talk to her till April 24th!!! I could ask for her number from school but i dont think they are allowed to give that out ... I could also write her a letter and ask the teachers there to mail it to her .. or I could explain what happened to the teachers and ask them to talk to her .. i havent stopped crying since i got home!! i feel like crap and I have no way of contacting her!! .... I swear i cant stop crying!!!!!!!!!! what should i do?????? any suggestions???
