Like every family dealing with a child with special needs, we have our good days and we have our bad days. We also have days like today that feature both.
We ended up at the cell phone store today, trying to get two phones fixed/replaced. For whatever reason, today was the day for Katy to just absolutely lose it at the sound of a door shutting. I honestly never saw it coming. We had been in the store for 10 minutes and she was doing great playing with her iPad.
And then the guy let the door slam.
My afternoon changed in an instant. One minute she was talking to me and the next she had been reduced to pure tears, to screams, to being uncontrollably upset. We haven’t had a meltdown like this in over a year. It took us a half an hour, maybe 45 minutes, to calm her down. Her sensitivity to these sounds had seemed to be getting so much better – until today. I just hope she was worn out today or something else was bugging her.
So that was the bad. Thankfully, we also got a taste of the good tonight after dinner. Katy had her first experience with aerosol whip cream.
I apologize this video is so long. I just couldn’t figure out where to cut anything out. If you can watch this without laughing, I have to wonder if you have any sense of humor whatsoever.
