Addison's take on Therapy

Dear World,

I have therapy 4 times a week. One might say that I need the extra help, and I let the world think that. Truth is? I let my influence brighten more days by allowing the presence of these 4 extra people in my house every week. It's truly an act of kindness on my part.

When these therapists come, I teach them how to read what the card REALLY says:
I cuddle if they look a bit blue:
I provide comic relief:
I throw a "look who's getting the attention now" look at little brother
I walk circles around my black boxes and rearrange the therapist's hair as I pass by (why have they all started wearing high buns???):
I imitate their extreme facial motions to help them feel better about themselves:
I consult my notes to see what else I have planned for the day:
and make sure that everyone present understands what those plans are:
I quite casually show off my brilliance and wait for the gasps that I know are coming:
I give courtesy smiles:
and request pick ups:
Yep, therapy these days is a highlight for everyone involved. It's all part of my plan.
love,
Addison

  7. I have followed your blog for a while now but today I just went to your Down syndrome page and read it. All I can say is.......WOW! You expressed so many of the emotions I felt when my Madi was first born, but never had the courage to admit. Thank you for being so honest!
