Being Two


Don't tell me my daughter isn't a "typical" 2-year-old!


I've heard that one of the benefits to parenting a special needs child is that nothing goes uncelebrated, and behavior that would normally frustrate a parent, is, for us, cause for rejoicing. A benefit? I'm not sure I'd go *that* far, but I will easily admit that the little things DO mean so much more in our house. My heart smiles every time I have to clean up a mess that Ellie's made, because it means she MOVED HERSELF to the scene of the crime, opened a door (or, in this case, toilet seat), and saw life through the eyes of a toddler. What could be greater than that?

So, we'll be keeping our toilet extra-clean, hiding the bathroom garbage can, and ALWAYS looking inside the bowl before we use it, or heaven forbid, flush!
