- Ashlea is officially a GMFCS Level 3
- I may in fact be losing my mind
Here is where Ashlea lies on the graph - the 'average' level 3 at age 3 1/2 would score 46 - Ashlea scored 43.79 (by comparison a level 4 of her age would score 36 - 37).
We are pretty impressed with this outcome, and hopefully if the scale is as predictive as it claims to be then this bodes well for her future. It is also good to have this baseline so we know that if she starts slipping below it some sort of intervention is necessary.
And now onto the crazy front...today after the assessment we went to the shops to get some lunch and then decided to stay and have a little browse. About 10 minutes into our browsing I must have put my bag on the floor (or the back of the pram and it slid off) to try on a jacket I had no intention of buying. I then of course walked out of the shop without it. I have walked off without it a couple of times recently but have always realised within 5 minutes. This time how long do you think until I even realised it was missing??? At least 45 minutes. Possibly longer.
Lucky for me another honest customer pointed it out to the girl in the shop who turned it in to Centre Management so it was easily recovered - a big relief as I was having visions of walking home in the rain with the girls and then sitting on the front step until someone arrived home to let us in as my car & house keys were in the bag...and my wallet, phone, ipod, address - you name it - everything you'd need to clean me out!
Please tell me I am not the only one going crazy!
