A while back, Cody’s occupational therapist told me that to help build Cody’s core strength I should tape large pieces of drawing paper to the walls and have him draw standing up. My landlord had just painted our apartment, so I knew taping paper to the walls wasn’t an option. I spent the next few weeks trying to figure out a solution. I searched for an easel, but the cost was beyond my budget. As I was putting the paper that his therapist gave me into storage, I told Cody that I couldn’t find a good place to put it up and would have to figure something else out.
His reply: “Why don’t you just put it on the fridge?”
Well…yeah…why don’t I?
We cleared his word magnets off the fridge door and placed the paper on it with magnets. It was perfect.
Why didn’t I think of that?
Next time I’m just going to ask Cody for a solution to a problem when I can’t come up with one.
