|Can you guess who will be getting a bath next?|
Doc had some sensory issues from day 1. He likes to sleep in certain positions. He would only use certain blankets. He wouldn't eat certain textures.
So, despite the fact that I despise messy food, when his OT suggested I let him try something with a sticky texture I agreed. Mentally, I KNEW it would end well... messy. But, I brought out the chocolate yogurt and he managed to actually get some inside him. Even better, when he happily went into his little bath tub, I knew we'd crossed a serious moment in his therapy.
To this day, he's still making a mess- you should have seen him attack the rice with chopsticks last night!- but he is a far neater diner than his older brother. And, if I have to wipe a chin every now and then- well, that's ok by me.
