Keep It The Same

Yesterday morning I took Hanna to get cast forms made so that new orthotics can be made for her. She does not like the casting process at all. The wet slimy stuff. which has to stay on until it hardens feels weird to her and she repeats over and over again "done now, done now". They had two people making these things so they could do both feet at the same time so we only had to listen to her complain for about half an hour.

After the appointment I took her to school and she was not looking to happy when we got there. The teacher asked her what was wrong and she said that she did not like it that her schedule was messed up. It is hard to imagine that missing the beginning of the school day can be that difficult for this kid, but it is. She needs to learn that things are always changing and she is going to have to get used to that. Even in the most routine situations there will be changes. We can not keep things the same all of the time just because she likes it that way.
