Grace for Rett » Grace's Life with Rett Syndrome

Going Back to the Way Things Were

Today, I put Grace’s crib mobile back on. When she started showing signs of getting to that age where I worried that she’s reach up and pull it down on herself, we removed the fluffy, lavender sing-song Mammas and Papas mobile and tucked it safely under her cot for some other lucky baby. Now that she can’t use her hands and is sometimes quite bored in her crib, I’ve put it back so she can have something to look at over her head. She must’ve wondered where it went for all those months!

Hi Beth, my kids, when babies, always liked mini christmas baubles that had tiny mirrors all over them hanging from the ceiling,the light reflected on the mirrors and gave off an amazing display of shapes around the room.

You just gave me a great idea. I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing for a few months myself but was afraid of treating her too much like a baby, when really I should of been thinking…..we will always treat our kids like their our babies so why treat Jess any different just because she has Rett’s.

So up goes the mobile she loved so much. Thank you!
