Today we made our twice monthly trek for the girls appointment with their therapist. They have been making some amazing headway with their Selective Mutism. The Hippie actually volunteered in her Sunday School class to lead the motions to a Bible verse they learned. The Genius has made a new friend and at our Enrichment classes, she has begun WHISPERING to her friend in class!!!!!! This is AMAZING headway for our girls! Their doctor said today that the Hippie's next step will be talking! The Genius has a little further to go yet.
On the way home they were asking about playing outside. I told them they were calling for storms and so we'd have to wait and see. The Hippie then proceeded to melt my heart while I was driving. She said, "There is only 1 thing I like to do during a storm. I like to watch the important things. The important things to watch are to stay away from windows and watch your Mommy and Daddy. Mommy's and Daddy's know how to keep their families safe. So you watch them because they will keep you safe during the storm. But I think Daddies keep you a little more safe because they are a little stronger and they are definitely stronger when the Mommy has a baby in her tummy. You and Daddy know how to keep us safe and so I like to watch you during a storm." She is just the sweetest little thing!
