My littlest sister finally got rid of her dummy!
She turned three and now uses the toilet, all the time!
My noisy sister has started making her own breakfast! She knows Mum doesn't get much sleep and that Dad has to leave home early, so she just does it herself. (Besides, she likes to get up before the sun comes out!) This morning, she even made my littlest sister's breakfast! There wasn't much nutella, so she gave the nutella to the little sister and used some nutella and some peanut butter on hers. She even poured herself a glass of milk and got some water for the little one. (She doesn't like milk in the morning.)
Mum and Dad are so proud of my sisters, for reaching these stages.
But, it is a bit of a bittersweet time...
My sisters are now doing everything that I should be doing, but can't, because of my cerebral palsy... That sometimes makes Mum and Dad feel sad for me and what I am missing out on.
When they praise my sister for getting rid of her yucky nappies, they have to tell me that my nappies are ok. I do use the toilet some nights, but I might always be in nappies, because I can't tell people I need the toilet and I can't get myself there.
(And, with summer sports starting up, there are lots of other reminders of the things I miss out on, because of my cerebral palsy...)
Mum and Dad are proud of me, too.
But, sometimes, cerebral palsy is hard.
But, my sister will always be cute! (And, Mum and Dad will teach her to make my breakfast, soon!)
