NJ Mom of 2 boys. – TJ, a 22 year old, and CJ, an 18 year old with Down Syndrome. I'm a Jersey girl. I have three younger brothers, all of whom have children. I HATE the misuse of the word retarded. I take it personally and find it very offensive. Things I love - Cats, my pets, driving, reading, cooking, rock music, tech, travel, Mario games, and NASCAR Cup racing.
