Yes She Can!

Little Bird's Occupational Therapist has always said that it's her will and determination that will always pull her through things. She's tough. I've never denied that. Whatever you do, do NOT tell this kid she can't do something. She will do it and then turn around to watch you watching her do whatever it was you said she couldn't do!

Yesterday we went to the park where she wanted to climb up a curved ladder and I, of course, was nervous. But, as usual, she was bent on doing it alone. Just look at that determination...


She made it to the top and then was ALL smiles on her way down the slide...

This little bird works her tuchie off! But her Mama, my Birdie, works harder than James Brown... hardest working man in show business. Remember him? Oh... well I am so proud of Danielle and all that she does so Brodie can be the best she can be. Dani's Mom :)

:) The curved ladder reminds me a little bit of Miller Method...

I would never doubt that YOUR child would be determined and charge ahead - especially if told that it couldn't be done! What a great trait to have given your daughter!!!

I used to climb the monkey bars. I felt so free.
Love your photos.

Man I miss the little chicky-doo! So do her classmates. I walk in the class room and it's all "Hi Miss Laura....WHERE'S BRODIE?!?!". Haha. I'm like "Hey, nice to see you too!"
