Dmmetler Posted March 16, 2012 Share Posted March 16, 2012 We're visiting family this week, and it seems like every time I turn around I get hit by just how different my DD is from their sweet, bright, and...well...NORMAL kids. Sometimes it's the cognitive side-not so much knowledge, but thinking (although it was frustrating both DD and her 5th grade cousin when DD was trying to help cousin with her homework, and DD kept using math skills cousin hadn't learned yet), but then they're trying to play outside, and DD's motor skills and what her sensory system will let her handle is just so much less than even what the 5 yr old can manage, let alone the 7 yr old, who is only 6 weeks older than DD. It just seems like my little person is some sort of different species entirely-and I know DD is feeling that way, too-which is in and of itself a difference-she's far more self conscious than anyone but maybe the 11 yr old. Maybe I've just been able to keep my head in the sand, but it's both frustrating and scary. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
