I'm sure I'll be back in the next few days with a costume post. Ellie will be a cheerleader for school and a SHHAAWWWK (aka "shark") for trick-or-treating.
But today, I'm going to end this month of Down syndrome awareness with a handy tip: shot glasses (the plastic kind, like for Jello shots) to work on open cup drinking.
Ellie's teacher had mentioned it, I saw some in the store yesterday while buying the supplies for our Halloween arty, and I bought some.
As I checked out, the young, fun cashier said, "Oh, those are so cute!"
And I laughed, pointed at Ellie and said, "They're to help her learn to drink from a cup."
Feeling old but loving the skill development I'm seeing in our peanut.
