One thing that has helped Sarah and I bond better is chocolate body lotion. This is a special lotion that has coco extract in it. I just began messaging it all over her dry skin every morning. She loves this ritual. She is now asking to have the message in the morning and at nights. She also wants to rub lotion on me too. It's very sweet! We both smell good, like chocolate!!! Chocolate is very good for the skin. I bought this lotion for Jessica (our 15 year old autistic daughter). Jess loves to get creamed! Sarah has really bad skin. She often seems to react to foods in hives. I think we will need to do some allergy tests on her. She sees the Dr on Thursday. Allergies are on my long list!
