saving grace? I'm curious because I'm a bit surprised at how well Duckie's fine motor delay really helped out in the long run. She was quite active, a poor sleeper and really liked to get into things, but she couldn't figure out a way to open her baby gate until she was four. Same with out front and back door. Having weak hands probably saved us from a whole 'nother world of trouble. She's also incredibly cute with a very tiny little voice (except when raging). She could probably charm a snake right out of its' skin. This helps her be forgiven when she messes up. And third, she has a kind heart. Especially with other kids that are struggling. I'm amazed at the number of times I've seen her comfort her friends and even children she doesn't know. So what it is about your child that is inherently good?
