Please note that if you haven’t seen Frozen yet, today’s post includes a spoiler.
Last night over dinner, we were talking about movies we liked. It was no surprise to me that Namine mentioned Frozen. So Jessica asked, “what’s your favorite part in Frozen?” I thought Namine would mention one of the songs. She’s been singing Do You Want To Build A Snowman quite a bit lately, so that’s what I expected to hear. But Namine’s response alarmed me.
On Saturday we went out with one of our friends from school for lunch and a movie. But not just any movie, we went to see Frozen again.
In an effort to enable Namine a little more in the kitchen, we invested in a Brita water filter. But we’re not using it for water. We’re using it for milk.
Namine’s friend Norah is her total opposite. Namine is content to sit in one spot for long periods of time. Norah, on the other hand, is constantly go go go — which is quite a switch for us.
Daddy, can I sleep in just my underwear tonight?
I knew the question was coming soon. Namine has, for nearly a week now, spent her days in underwear – yes, that’s right, no diaper. Her mind is ready to be rid of the diaper, even if her body is not.
We took Namine to the pediatrician. Yes, again. She still has a nasty-sounding cough — even after being on steroids to help with inflammation, antibiotic, increased inhalers, and a nebulizer — and the persistent bugger shows no sign of letting up.
Physical therapy has always been a part of Namine’s life, and it always will be. She has to work harder to do things that just come naturally to other children.
