Another thought about developmental milestones

I read a post, Being a scary monster is a beautiful thing, this morning from Ellen at lovethatmax.com about how kids progress differently, especially when they have special needs.

It reminded me how much each child moves at their own pace.  Our own two kids are so different in their progress, as all are.

We have to remember that each child is different.  Milestones are based on averages.  An average is based the total of a lot, divided by the number.  By that very fact, everyone is above or below average.

We try to see everything as normal.  Really, nothing is normal.
