Averi gets several therapies several times a week.  Most of them require work and may not be deemed as 'fun.'  Therapeutic Recreation is the exception.  I'm still not completely sure why it's considered a therapy but it's a lot of fun and Averi usually enjoys it, especially with the person on our floor, Mary.

The last time Mary did something messy with us it involved finger paints and Averi wasn't too thrilled about having the slimy goo on her hands.  We gave her a paint brush and the problem was solved.  I think between me being such a neat person and Averi not being able to take baths or touch anything that might get on her dressing/caps, she's not too fond of messes.

Today we tried something less slimy - shaving cream.  We didn't know how Averi would respond so we started out slow...
 She LOVED it!
By the end she was covered in it.
The best part was that it just washed right off with a wet washcloth.  We will definitely be doing this again.
