Heard THAT Before

MM had her usual Thursday OT & PT sessions. They both came out to tell me that she was really social today but very uncoordinated. She just seemed out of sorts. However, after days of being so off behaviorly & socially at home, she was ON. Guess she can't be coordinated & social on the same day.

The PT also said she's not sure if she will ever be able to ride her trike without close supervision let alone a real bike. She needs constant help to steer. She can pedal OR she can steer, but she can not do BOTH. She said her motor planning skills are so poor. I told her "We were also told she would never walk unassisted and she does. She couldn't jump when we started here over a year ago & now she is jumping. That is why I pay you, figure it out".

So, today was a good day. I did not get discouraged by her words, just disgusted. I get tired of hearing so many negatives. Don't get me wrong, the therapists there are really good & come out with positives all the time. It's just you get tired of hearing the same old things when it comes to your child.




BLAH BLAH BLAH words I have heard before. Prove them wrong MM- how many times does Mommy tell you "You are an AmeriCAN not an AmeriCAN'T".

GO MM! I'm glad she's improving socially...and know she will eventually be able to multi task. She is WOMAN! (well a small one ;)) and we can all multitask!

I saw this...and i'm getting it for Jacob for his birthday, thought of you and Megan, i'm sure it might help her and grow with her.
