Apraxia, Meet Your Match!

This girl of mine.......

...Just turned 8 on Friday.

...Got sassy with her teacher this morning.

...Got sassy with her private SLP this afternoon.

...Has lost privileges twice today.

Am I mad?
No, not really.
Because while I am disappointed at the sassy behavior, the mouthiness, and the back-talk, I'm actually eased as punch.

Why, you ask?

Because apraxia has stolen my daughter's voice for far too long.
And now she is finding her voice.
And it makes me so happy that she is asserting herself.
And yes, I am working on those negative behaviors.
But a wise Latin once said "to the victors go the spoils".

Right now, I am savoring these sweet victory!
