Homework Assignment #1: Check!

Payton's first homework assignment at her preschool for special needs kids was learning how to twist or turn things ... twist the top off a jar, turn a door knob, etc. All I have to say is she is so dang smart and she catches on so easily! She pretty much mastered twisting the top off the jar right away.

That is one thing that is so interesting to me as the parent of a child with special needs. You learn to break down the learning process in ways that you never do with a typical child, ways that you would never think to do. So ... that is my thought for the day! LOL


  1. Oh she's so cute! Now doors are going to be opened and shut quite a bit at your house! :)

  2. Great job Payton!! I am still stunned by the things that we have to teach our kiddos, things I never had to show Hunter how to do, it's not a bad thing, just something I never thought about I guess!

  3. I can totally relate to this even though Victoria is only 6 1/2 months old! You take each stepping stone for granted because you saw your "normal" kids do those things with such ease. It's an interesting journey to be on for sure!
