Let me assure you all, Maggie has plenty of strengths. Among those is an overabundance of self esteem. She is her own biggest fan. It's hard not to agree with her because it is so hilarious.
By way of example, take this evening. Maggie was using her talker to say the nurse (Fely) is coming tomorrow. Generally she says "Fely is coming tomorrow on Wednesday to take care of Maggie" Today she switched it around. She said, "Fely is coming tomorrow to take care of Miss.....".
And the sentence stopped. Maggie waited. The change made us all pay attentions - which was of course her intent.
Fely Asked her, "Miss Third Avenue?" Maggie slammed her hand down to say NO.
"Miss San Francisco?" Again, an emphatic NO
"Miss California?" Yes. Yes, that's it. Miss California.
She inserted that into her sentence and was quite pleased with herself.
She will undoubtedly crown herself Miss America and then Miss Universe, but she wants to get out of her teens first. No bathing suit competition. But she really does want World Peace.
