With Cerebral Palsy, sometimes it's difficult to maintain balance long enough to do simple things without making a huge mess...like pouring your own glass of tea. It's often easier to ask your twin to do it for you. We continue to encourage independence, though, since your twin may not always be right at your side.
This week the Pip Squeak made dessert all by himself. Twice. He was so excited he could hardly contain himself. He picked out all of the ingredients, scanned them through the do-it-yourself check out, paid the cashier, unloaded the things from the car at home, and then followed the recipe to make Oreo Pie, using the electric mixer and whisking things together. Notice how hard he's trying NOT to grin in the picture? And the chair he's kneeling in so that he's tall enough to reach the counter. He was very proud of himself! And the pie was DELICIOUS!
So good that he had to make another one last night.
