Yesterday I made chocolate chip cookies with the girls. It was the first time I made cookies with out the help of my mom or Steve. I was always able to measure and mix the ingredients but I was never able to take the cookies in and out of the oven. Plus, I would have never been able to use a spatula to remove the cookies from the hot cookie sheets
For the past week, I've been wanting to make cookies, but I really wanted to wait until the girls could do it with me. They did such a great job measuring and mixing and I was so happy that the three of us could make this memory together. It reminded me of being a little girl and helping my mom when she baked cookies. Those were some of the best times in my life and now I can do the same thing with my daughters.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
