The Silent Treatment

Today was Rosie's first session with her speech therapist. Rosie was uncommonly quiet today, especially after a trip to the market, just before the session, where she tested the strength of the glass doors enclosing every freezer case on four aisles. Rosie did prove today that she has American Sign Language down pat. She said quite a bit - with her hands. I'm certain that improvement should be in steps, not leaps and bounds.
