Big sister to the rescue

August is our month for appointments! All the kids will see the eye doctor, dentist, get whatever shots are needed, and get physicals for sports.

Today was Abel's eye appointment. He really has a tough time with doctor appointments. Angela likes to come along to help him and she is great at this! Today we were in the play area waiting for his eyes to dilate. There was a group of siblings who were not very nice, but their mom was busy at the registration desk. One boy about 7 kept taking toys away from Abel. After stepping in a couple of times I was getting annoyed but reminding myself I dont know if this boy has a hidden disability. I was just about to call Abel over to me when Angela jumped in. "Abel, lets read a story!". She sat down on the floor between him and the other kids and started reading a book to him. She is such a good big sister!
