That's Just How We Roll

 I've already told you that we don't do a lot of formal therapy in this household. So when authentic opportunities arise that allow Phoenix to rock her gross motor skills, we take advantage of them.  Like here for instance. Phoenix was on her step stool, getting ready for me to brush her teeth, when she decided that she wanted to climb the vanity. Because I wanted to see what she could do I let her. 

And then grabbed the camera.

Working on fine motor skills.

Working on self help skills by trying to open the medicine cabinet and turn the light off and on. 

Climbing in the bathroom. That's just how we roll.


  1. LOL!! Love it!! She's a little monkey!!

    Does she let you brush her teeth? Kelly hates it and I'm not good at doing it every night because I hate the fight. Fortunately, he's still breastfed which offers some protection. And he eats apples right off the core which scrapes some plaque. That's my story.

  2. I brush for a few seconds before she fights back. It is not brushing well, but I always attempt it. We didn't start until Phoenix was about 2.
