What I can't believe
Well, I can't believe I just copied my friends title for her blog of the day! =) But that is not the real story. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, then you know that both of our girls have Selective Mutism. You also know it is something they have been getting treatment for. We have been seeing small gains but today... I cannot believe what happened!! My sister-in-law and I took the girls out for lunch. We were patiently waiting for them to bring our crackers. Our oldest asked if we could get some crackers. I told her to go ask. She asked if her sister could come and I agreed. She went up, waited for the waitress to notice her (took about 3 minutes) and she came back with a bowl of crackers. When I went to pay I asked the waitress if our daughter spoke and she said, "Oh she is the cutest thing! She said, "Excuse me please but we have been here a really long time and would like some crackers please." What?!?!?! I am way beyond thrilled!!!! This has been a great day! In almost 6 years our daughter has never spoken to a cashier, waiter or waitress... till today!
