Happiness is Dance and Apraxia.
Oh for the love of extracurricular activities. When you start planning your families, you never think about all the extra stuff they will want to do. For example, team sports like baseball, football, soccer, or basketball. You forget about martial arts, swimming, dance, gymnastics, and cheering. With each child comes their own desires.
These bees have me all over the place. Seriously. This image is from last year. KB started taking dance for the very first time and loved it. She followed all the steps and instructions that her instructor told her to do. She is currently in dance again this season but with a new studio. I didn’t tell them about her Apraxia. KB has come so far in her journey that it doesn’t really bother me like it used to.
I tend to forget that KB has a speech issue. I just don’t see it as an issue. Maybe I should. I am choosing to NOT explain why she probably isn’t as verbal as the other girls will be. It is just weird…explaining the whole Apraxia issue. KB is working hard on her dance steps. She was doing exactly as instructed. She is also being like all the other little ones in her class. They play and giggle. They are little girls in tutus. Life is a fairy tale during those classes. I would assume it’s because she understands so well. The brain is such a powerful and interesting organ. While she may struggle to talk, she listens and does as she’s told (especially when the instructions are coming from someone other than me).
