... on the top shelf of the pantry? Seriously, who took my daughter and left me this monkey?
I guess this is a good time to comment on the strength that Payton has. It boggles my mind, especially for a child that has Down syndrome. We can pretty much throw those stereotypes out the window! Whether she is scaling rock walls, pulling her entire body up on the monkey bars or simply scaling the pantry shelves ... the chick is strong!
One day when Payton was at speech, there was another child in the therapy room doing PT. When we were getting ready to leave, the therapist commented on how she couldn't believe how muscular Payton's legs are. I really didn't know what to say, since I have never compared her leg muscles with that of another child. I mean really, who does that? But I do know she is a husky, strong little girl, so it makes sense ... and I guess it is good to know?
That's all I got, folks. Haha.
