Tis' the season for backyard fun! Black Widows have been sprayed, dirt has been swept, and new fun toys fill the backyard in effort to distract dear Sadie from scaling the pool fence. Unfortunately, this smart little first grader has figured out how to unlock the poolgate... so, outside fun is closely monitored.
When Sadie was little I heard/or read once that children with DS do not 'do creative/imagination play'. I'm not sure why (and honestly have not seen that to be the case); but it has always bothered me. I think it goes back to my homeschooling days when I heard 85% of kids are creative at the age of 5 and by 20 only 5% of the population is creative. Sadie's creative play is always heavily influence by Disney Channel, DVD's, Nick Jr., and the endless youtube music videos she watches... so I'm not sure how much of that is imagination? Anyway, here's a funny scene - influence by her one of her sister's, and her friends, favorite pastime's (I'm almost too embarrassed to say it)- Rupaul's Drag Race!
