I'm a May 2011 mom under another name just in case I haven't posted in a while..
I'm putting this out to the internet/bump universe just to get it off my chest.
I have a friend who's LO is around 19 months (My LO is 17 months). In my gut and in my heart it is obvious there is something not right with this child.
I see my friend often and her child but she has said NOTHING to me. She tells me things that her LO does and I know they can't be true ( I witness it).
I have mutual friends on Facebook asking ME what is wrong with her LO and I can't answer because I don't even know. I'm not a doctor or a psychologist but from a guess I would say her LO is either slightly downs or something else. Whatever it is, it is slight, but it's obvious to me and others that he's not your average 19 month old.
It's becoming uncomfortable because I'm not sure if she's in denial, if she knows but is not saying anything to me or what. If I was the only one thinking this I would think I'm crazy but I have several (at least 5) mutual friends discuss it with me.
Of course I would NEVER say anything to her. I guess I just don't know how you can miss something like this. I know it's hard to swallow, but wouldn't you want the best for your child?
Anyway thanks for listening. I feel real bad and not that I can help but I would be there for her if she needed me.
