Earlier this week, Bea, Josie's dedicated physical therapist, removed the seat from Josie's gait trainer. Josie was NOT happy. She'd grown accustomed to relaxing in the seat. Now she's actually expected to stand, bear weight on her feet, and take steps. Did Bea really think our little diva was going to nod, smile and enthusiastically endorse this absurd plan?!
You know that stereotype about the terrible twos? How about the stereotype about people with Down syndrome being stubborn? Well, Josie's not really interested in dispelling either of those notions. She is, however, interested in exercising her right to say "no"...about a thousand times a day (insert exasperated sigh here).
