That's all it was...one simple cheerio that I found after sweeping underneath our couch. It was a painful reminder that Reagan used to be able to, and really loved, to feed herself cheerios as a morning snack before breakfast every day. We would pour her a little bowl of cheerios, she would take a few and feed herself while walking around, quickly coming back for more. Nevermind that she never quite got the skill of using her pincher grasp (finger and thumb) to only take one and used her whole hand to rake about 10 in her mouth. I would sometimes get frustrated over the million cheerios that she would leave in her wake, scattered all over the living room. But seeing that lonely cheerio hiding under our couch today made me realize how much I miss those moments, seeing her do the simplest of task that she has since lost because of Rett Syndrome.
Hi and welcome to our family blog! We have a 4 year old daughter, Reagan, who has Rett Syndrome and a 2 year old daughter, Lauren. This blog is to help others understand Rett Syndrome and to share our journey.
