Daniel missed his field trip last week because he was out sick. So, today I decided to take him to the zoo.
It started off with good intentions. Daniel enjoys being outside. Daniel does NOT enjoy being up close to the animals. He likes pictures of Animals. He does NOT enjoy the roaring tiger. I could tell he was getting scared so I started to undo his seatbelt on his wheelchair. The kid almost jumped out of the seat and into my arms!
I guess I am a little confused. Is it just my child, or do children with CP have sensory issues? Loud noises, big objects freak him out.
Here is a photo where he isn’t too freaked out. Also in the photo from left to right. Zachary (his nephew) Brittany (his sister), Daniel and Victoria (his other sister).
We decided to take Zachary with us cause his momma (Alexandra) is in the hospital. WOW he is a handful! He is very quick to undo his own belt and take off like a bat outta hell!
Oh well, at least we were outside for a few hours. I don’t think Daniel missed too much from his field trip. His teacher however I am sure would have had her hands full with my sensory issue child! :)
