My daughter will be one at the end of December and she is amazing and has come so far through therapy,etc. I never had any doubt that she would do everything in her own time. We are still working on sitting, rolling from back to front, etc.
Yesterday, her PT said something that made me a little sad. She said, "I have high hope for her. There are some children that you know may not be able to do something and I wouldn't say this to you if I didn't believe it." On the surface, it was a nice thing to say and I know she didn't mean anything negative by it. But, the thing is, I never thought there was a possibility that she wouldn't do things, just in her own time. Having hope and knowing it will happen are two different things entirely.
I know it's probably silly, but it made me sad when I thought about it. It happens probably once a week when someone says something trying to be nice, and it's like a punch in the gut. Does it ever get better?
