The occupational therapists like to surprise us sometimes. They've apparently been working with Whitney on some new life skills since the beginning of the school year. Whit surprised us this weekend with her new found superpower of being able to turn on the bathroom sink. Melanie was folding some laundry and Whitney walked up to the sink in the adjacent bathroom and proceeded to surprise us by turning on the water. As you can see in the video, she does it repeatedly so it's no fluke. It appears the therapists are working on getting her to wash her hands all by herself after going potty. That sounds like a great life skill to me. It sure is fun to have surprises like this one come along. Mel and I are grateful for the wonderful school system that supplements what we do in the home. And then goes above and beyond with delightful little shocks like this.
