The other day my father in law had to have an ultrasound. K was told about this, because we had to explain that we couldn't go to Grandma & Grandpa's for dinner as planned because he had gotten a sudden phone call about having this test done. She must have been thinking about this, because the next morning she said "Grandpa is a good boy" Yes, I agreed, unsure of why she was saying this. "Grandpa is a good boy having a test done." Now, it clicked. K is not comfortable being touched by strangers & we are working on this, so often tell her what a good girl she is after she has tolerated being checked out by a doctor - thankfully she is very healthy. She must have been concerned about those doctors checking out Grandpa & assumed that he behaved well for it :) The next part of the conversation showed me that she was really thinking about it & looking for a solution. She asked "Grandpa goes to Mrs. A? This is the cranio sacral therapist (RN as well as massage therapist) that K goes to. Mrs. A always makes K feel better, and her sisters have gone occasionally too, especially after sports injuries, so I guess she was sure that this would help Grandpa too, rather than go to the doctor who does scary tests!
