|Olivia on her 5th birthday. Sniff.|
'Cause I'll let you in on a little secret -- I know I make it look good, but this stuff ain't easy. Taking this show on the road can be a daunting proposition even on my best days. Some days it is a miracle if I just get everyone out the door on time, much less on a plane and into a tourist mecca.
|It takes a lot more than lipstick to make this look good.|
But, I never forgot the look of joy on Olivia's face and I wanted to see it again. I wanted to see it on Simon's face too. He deserves that, and so do I.
So we decided to make it happen. And, through a little research we learned that Disney is actually very accustomed to families needing extra help. With a bit more planning and preparation, some well placed phone calls and (even more) paperwork, we were able to do Disney again in a way that we thought might actually work.
And it did.
|Thanks to the disability pass, we had reduced wait times, which made it possible for Simon to enjoy the rides (and boy did he enjoy them!).|
|So, thank you, Disney. For the first time in a very long time I didn't feel like we were a special needs family -- we were just a special family. And because of that, I know we will be back again soon.|
