New Fun Toy and a Pair of Pink Crocs!May 30, 2009 by Bill Strong Gramma brought a fun new toy that Gwendolyn enjoyed playing with her last week. Gwendolyn loved choosing which color wooden "nail" to take on next and having Gramma help her pound, pound, pound them with the hammer. You can tell she really liked the feel of the impact of the hammer and the noise that it all made. But I think she mostly liked playing with Gramma
Then, we took a walk and found a pair of pink Crocs that Gwendolyn just HAD to have There was a bit of a meltdown in between the trying on of a few colors and sizes and the purchasing, but she did pretty well picking out her first pair of shoes all things considered. Shoes are challenging to put on Gwendolyn because of her contractures and the overall lack of tone in her feet and ankles. But, we thought that Crocs would be loose enough for us to slide on her feet. And...they're great! And the best part is Gwendolyn is so proud of her new "big girl shoes". She loves showing them to everyone and there hasn't been a day since we bought them that she hasn't worn them proudly out-and-about. Thank you Gramma!
