Day 1160 - Aug 3, 2011

Kevin had physical therapy today and it was a little frustrating. The other day I had to talk to the therapist because she was just being too nice and Kevin was taking advantage. She was always 'asking' if he wanted to do something and he was always saying 'no'. So I pulled her aside and told her to just tell him what she needed him to do and he had a rough time with the change today.

I think he's just tired of therapy and I can totally understand that - it has been over three years already. But if he doesn't get some therapy on a regular basis he will start crippling up and we just can't have that.

So hopefully he does better next week when he goes back to PT.

And tonight the new aide "Efren" came and he and Kevin got along really well. He's a super kid and he even talked about taking Kev to meet his friends. It would be so great if Kev could get to meet more people his own age!

We also babysat Christian tonight. Breezy's friend came down from Pennsylvania for a few days so the two of them went to Sea World. I picked the baby up from day care in the late afternoon and he was here until about 10pm or so. What a joy - for both Kevin and myself!

I'm so glad Kevin and Efren got along really well! That's wonderful about meeting his friends as well! I agree, meeting more people his age will be just what he needs. :)
Sounds like you had a fun time with Christian too! Isn't it something how babies/children seem to make all your worries go away even for a minute. It's truly wonderful therapy for the soul.
Take care,
Kathy in IA

I agree with Kathy that babies can be therapy! Unless they're crying and won't stop. Then you would need therapy! ;)
