FREE PASS

Here's to beach days with Mom.

Beach days that are a surprise.

Beach days where your Mom wakes you up for school but instead of getting ready for the bus, you get ready for the beach after she informs you that you are getting a "free day."

Yeap, a free day. A free pass. A day with Mom, without your sister. A day where Brennen gets to be Brennen and not be overshadowed by his sister or her disabilities. God love her.

Let's face it...healthy siblings of special needs children really get the short end of the stick many times. We find that Brennen's life is constantly altered due to the limitations Kenidi has in life. It's not fair to him. Therefore, I decided a beach day with Mom was fitting. A beach day where I could take him and just hang out - allowing him to be himself rather than "Kenidi's brother" for those few hours. And even though we missed our little Kenidi dearly while she was at school for the afternoon, we had some much needed Mommy & son time.

I'll spare you the details of his whining during our 30 minute walk back down the beach to our car as we were leaving that day and just leave you with the warm and fuzzies we had before all that. LOL!

xoxo, Angie

What a great day for you two! These are the days that Brennen will look back on when he's 30 years old old and tell people about what a great Mom he has. Definately a memory he'll have forever.

Angie...what a blessing for you and Brennen...I'm usually a stickler about school attendance, but it is so important for kids to have that one on one time with their parents, this makes me want to do this with my kiddos (minus the beach that's hundreds of miles away :-( ) After all, years down the road, he will remember THIS day, not the other million days of the same 'ole same 'ole at school...Good for you guys!!!

that is really great. as i watch my daughter's best friend be a big sister i see her strength and her compassion... and on occasion, her frustration. it is good to have a free pass... and the love that comes with it.
