a step further




A new milestone!
Mies (with Down) drawed a little 'man' for the very first time!
She was super proud of it! (and mummy too)
you just can't imagine what this little step means to us!
These things are not obvious for a child with mental retardation and a weak muscle tension (specific for Down), that's why this is such a great progress for her!

Wat is kunst? wat is kunst?
Die blik in jouw ogen, dat is kunst!
(Noordkaap)
Een memorabele dag gisteren!
Mies tekende helemaal zelf een 'mannetje'! zonder hulp, zonder aanwijzingen,
blijkbaar heeft ze het kopvoeter stadium overgeslagen!
en Ze was apetrots!
Je kan je niet voorstellen hoe gelukkig wij zijn met dit stapje vooruit!
Voor een kind met mentale vertraging zijn zo'n zaken niet evident, ook de slappe spierspanning (eigen aan Downsyndroom) maakt het er niet makkelijker op.

SHOPPING LIST SATURDAY IS COMING SOON :-)

I am very proud of her: I know how much effort it costs her to reach the things that other kids learn so easy, but she never gives up
