To get comfortable.
Brayden likes to swing his legs out...way out. We call it his frogs legs. It is a challenge to keep his legs in. No matter what device his is sitting in, he will swing his legs out. This is problematic for, let's say, um, going through doors...pushing a wheelchair or any of his chairs through a doorway and his legs are hanging out to the side. This is problematic for school and for the bus.
For his well-being he cannot let his legs hang over the side in his wheelchair for bus transportation; so his feet are strapped down. But he still finds a way to get comfortable.
He has been able to wiggle his feet out of his shoe. Shoe still strapped down...not his feet...clearly he is winning this battle.
