Sometimes the simplest things worked wonders for Samantha.
We spent thousands of dollars for high-tech seating equipment but her favorite spot was her ‘throne’.
It should come as no surprise because she is a princess.
Samantha’s seat consisted of pieces of furniture foam carved out to fit her little body perfectly. The pieces were glued together to provide head, back and hip support. It was soft, cuddly, light, a perfect throne for a princess.
Unfortunately Samantha was getting too big for her royal seat so we were going to have to give it away.
And I knew the perfect little princess to have it….Cici and her mom Jenny have been fabulous friends to us and like any good member of royalty needed a throne of her own. Cici is also going in for an extensive surgery in September. Hopefully the throne will provide the repositioning and hip support she needs.
Last night we had an exchange of the throne.
She looks so great in her new seat….it is just what she needs. And I was very excited to pass it along.
But (and I hate to admit it) it’s a little bittersweet to see her things moving on. I even got a bit emotional about a pack of swim diapers the other night but I can’t think of anything better than to give her things to her friends who need them….
It gives me joy to give them to her people who need them…
Joy and a little twinge of ick….
Sweet and a little taste of bitter….
Samantha outgrew her chair.
