Arm vs. Baby

While working with a 7 year old in therapy on functional daily living skills, (particularily calling 911) I intentionally fell to the ground and started to complain about hurting my arm. My patient yells out, "I'll call 911. Come with me." She promptly leads me to the therapy room and asks me to lay on the floor. I continue to complain that I'm in so much pain my arm hurts and so forth. She reassures me the ambulance is on the way. As I continue complaining, she suddenly jumps up and runs to my toy cabinet, grabs a baby doll and yells, "Push! The baby's coming!"
