I finally got Jessica to try Cracker Barrel!
Namine was in her wheelchair, ready to go. “Be ready to leave in a half hour,” I told Jessica.
Jessica and her sisters had been planning today for some time. Today was cookie day… or perhaps, as I think of it, Cookie Day. We estimate a number of greater than six hundred cookies were made in the course of six hours. That’s not bad for having a single oven.
Yesterday was perhaps not the birthday that Jessica wanted – with Namine’s cardiology appointment revealing tachycardia – but it is indicative of the life we have with each other.
Today was a craft day. We made our own Christmas stockings! It took a little while for Namine to get the idea, but she’s been doing fine motor stuff at therapy for long enough that she got the hang of it pretty quickly.
Jessica and her sister Melissa made purses from old jeans for the little girls in our lives: Namine and her cousins Olivia and Eva.
“I want a strawfanade.” “What?” “I mean a strawbanade.” “I’ll say it again, what?” “I meant to say strawberry lemonade, it came out wrong.”
