I heard Amanda giggling in the back yard and looked out and found her and Fuzz playing, they stayed together for quite a long time before Fuzz came over to yell at me; he was hungry.
You can see how huge he is, he was such a tiny grey fuzzball when we found him.
Where he got his name.
Where he got his name.
Isn't is great when a child can love an animal so much, at first she was a little rough with the pets, but after being scratched and bitten, she has learned to be more gentle.
Both Amanda and Kara were tired after SIT today, she did a lot of swinging and bouncing with Kara, but more craniosacral and deep pressure work with Amanda, Amanda was not laughing like Kara was either. Despite them both having Down syndrome, they are polar opposites in temperament and their therapy goals. I will say it again, all kids with Down syndrome are not alike, despite what folks try to tell you. LOL
We ran into a snag with scheduling the appointments; we were supposed to share OT units between Amanda;s feeding therapy and Kara's OT, but no one told P this, she though the girls were coming weekly, she said she simply cannot make a two hour time slot in her schedule every other week, so she wants to see Kara one week and then Amanda the next, that will not work for our homeschooling schedule. So we are going to have to compromise somehow. I cannot have that much time out of our day away from home weekly, we were gone over 4 hours today, and Meghan missed some school lessons.
Oh Meghan, she did not want to wear the pants I got out for her, some pink stretch cords from last year, worn once. They fit perfectly, but she was throwing a huge fit about wearing them, she kept telling me no, no, no and I used a line from her favorite movie to make her laugh and she agreed to wear them, but oh boy, what a conniption fit she threw.
We were all stressed when we arrived at P's for OT. Funny, we went into her front porch and knocked, rang the bell, and no one was there, I left to get gas and returned and she said the therapy place was in the back of the house, in an old guest house. Ah well, now we know.
After therapy we went to Target to buy Kara some birthday presents. I really cannot go by myself, so she picked out what she wanted, A Groovy Girl and a Barbie. She will get a bigger present too, I just do not know what to get for her.
So tomorrow Kara turns 5! I will update her blog with pictures tomorrow.
