the morning routine
Every morning I have to put her splints on. When we first got the splints this was no easy task. We were literally wrestling our 50 pound daughter for about 15 minutes every morning just trying to secure them on her feet. She is really good at wiggling, throwing her weight around and pressing with all her might against you just to get out of your grasp. Add to the mix to little siblings who would walk off with the splints and this seriously became an ordeal. I even asked for pointers from all her therapists because I was so frustrated with her behavior.
Today we have a completely different story. If pressed for time I can actually get those damn splints on in under two minutes now. My other children don't walk off with them anymore either. My oldest still will put up a good fight but I am usually ready for her. The funny thing for me now is watch her therapists try and put them on. They struggle like I did 6 months ago because for them, it's a whole new ball game!
