Yesterday, I answered precisely 412 questions in regards to Elisabeth and her development. Some of them required and simple yes or no answer, while another questionnaire asked that I rate her on a scale of 1-3, or, circle 0 if she is unable.
In all, there were only 5 that she is capable of. 5 out of 412.
As I was circling, no, no, no, no, no, no, no....
And 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0....
I thought, this is so silly! Elisabeth simply cannot be measured in the same way as the rest of us. Indeed, the rest of us cannot measure up to Elisabeth.
She is perfect and pure. It doesn't matter that she can't crawl or communicate or make choices, it just doesn't.
I smiled, though, at two of the five that she is succeeding at.
Has good relationship with parents and other adults.
Is well liked by others her age.
She's got the important stuff all figured out!
