Last Wednesday was Bear’s first visit with her developmental therapist, Tammy, after a super long extended break. We were all very anxious to see how she would respond after not really working with Tammy for about a year. Little did we know the treat that was in store.
Tammy came in right as we were finishing our lunch. Bear saw her, and immediately began begging for more food. I could tell that Bear was stalling so finally I said she had had enough.
Tammy jumped right at the opportunity to entice Bear with some toys. She pulled out the Fisher-Price teapot and my honest thought was, “fat chance!”
Bear walked right up to the toy and began pouring cups of tea and putting the snack pieces in the appropriate places! My jaw dropped. How come she won’t do that for me?
After playing with that toy awhile, Bear had a blast playing with the piggy bank toy that Tammy brought. I sat there just amazed through the whole process. I could hardly believe my eyes.
Then Bear did something she has never, ever done before.
Tammy started packing up and writing up the report when Bear began waving goodbye. And then she did it!
She kissed her hand and then blew. She started blowing Tammy kisses! And she hasn’t stopped since. Every time we go to leave, she waves bye and then blows kisses.
Therapy went better than I could have imagined! Way to go, Bear! Just, please be careful who you blow those kisses to
