DSAM17 – Day 14 – We get away

on October 14, 2017

I absolutely love to travel.  John is more of a homebody, which, for the sake of balance, is probably good.  I could live out of a suitcase for months at a time… he is more of the weekend away type.

In any case, I thought having a child with Down syndrome would mean that my vagabond tendencies would have to be reigned in.  At the very least, I wondered if we would ever be able to get away without the kids again.  

Spoiler alert: We do.

Truth be told, we are totally blessed with an amazing support system that makes this possible (more on that to come).  Right now, as I relax in a hotel room after a full day of bumming around with my husband, I don’t recall why I thought this might not happen again.  Maybe it was a fear that no one would be able to “handle” her, or would be willing to try, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.  

And, we also take the kids places.  Pretty much from the get-go, we have been carting Tessa all around God’s green earth to show her the wonderful things around us.  She does pretty well with it (the Dollywood fireworks every night were a little much, but we managed) and while we have yet to make it outside of the Midwest, we have some big travel plans for our future that I can’t wait to get moving on!!
