Last week, I told you about our Adventures in Grocery Shopping. A few things changed this week and, truth be told, this week's trip was UNEVENTFUL!
So what was different from this week and last week you ask?
1. Little Man was with us. He is off of school today for a "staff development day." I talked to him beforehand about how we weren't going to get the "little carts." It's too difficult for me to corral both kids with them. Plus, I wasn't entirely sure how much we were going to get.
2. We've started the Wilbarger Deep Pressure and Proprioceptive Technique (DPPT). (More information can be found here.) There is a "sweet spot" of time that the mind and body organizes itself. This "sweet spot" is about two hours. (That's why it's recommended to do it every two hours if possible.) We went to the store an hour after brushing.
So maybe this brushing thing is working....
All I know is that I didn't have to buy Cheetos, milk, waffles, sugar, or anything else that we usually get at the store because some little girl was going to melt down if we didn't. AND afterwards, we all shared a package of powdered donuts and Princess didn't scream or cry that her hands were messy!
