Been there, done that, got the T shirt

Being stared at is a challenging thing and I've discussed it in the past. (And here) But with this T shirt I'm positively encouraging it. And you DO get stared at. Running in this bad boy gets awareness going. I think it lends itself particularly to running as it's not exactly a fashion item. But you can wear yours when you want........They're available for £10 + £2 from the Down's Syndrome Association. So, instead of walking around with Stan wishing people weren't staring, I'm running around thinking "Stare! Just stare". And they do.  Who knows, maybe they'll stop staring when we're out and about as a family. Or I'll have to quickly throw the T shirt on.............
