It Takes a Village

I just finished baking 8 mini loaves of apple spice cake and 8 mini loaves of gluten-free, casein-free chocolate chip pumpkin bread.

16 mini loaves of homemade goodness.

All from scratch.

All for Lily's therapists at her school who work tirelessly with my daughter five days a week.

Doing things like potty training.  Teaching sign language.  Putting together puzzles and shape sorters.  Trying to get Lily to match pictures and sort objects.  Wash her hands.  Pump her legs on a swing.  Brush a baby doll's hair.  Use a fork and spoon.

Not to mention, little extra things like foot rubs, hugs, kisses, squeezes, cheers and positive encouragement.

With the occasional Backyardigans video thrown in to help her sit on the potty just a little bit longer!

These are good people.  People I consider heroes.

It takes a special person to work with these kiddos.  Parents of special needs children have a fierce, protective love for their babies.  We know how special these kids are - what a blessing it is to have them around.

And to have therapists who feel that same way about my baby girl?

Well, that's just the icing on the cake.

And so I felt like spoiling them - with cake.

Just one small way to let them know how lucky I am to have them on Team Lily.
