But, I can understand why we have our breakdowns. I guess it kind of puts everything back into perspective so we can get back on track. This would remind me of "Bree" from "Desperate Housewives". Bree, who thinks her way is perfect, well, is not so perfect afterall. She kind of missed out on why her kids were unhappy and ended up doing the "naughty" things. Perfection, is not so good in the end.
The family went to a "Special Needs Holiday Party" here at Travis Air Force Base, CA. It was a huge party for all the special needs family attached to the base. I was so eager to go, because I thought I might run into other families who have children with Down syndrome. Nope, not one. Well, not one that I could see. However, we had a super time! They had Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, a football player from the Raiders, Looney Toon characters, a full buffet, cake, raffles, and a huge gift bag for every child that attended this party! We had our family picture taken and the kids got to see a magic show by Kelley the Clown! They even had volunteers serving each table that helped with the kids and went to the buffet table to get food. The base did an outstanding job to bring us together and make all the kids feel extremely happy! Many THANKS to all the volunteers who went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. It was truly a wonderful night.
