Yes, it's true. We took Ben to Disneyland.
I could not have imagined doing this a year ago. But Ben's ever-increasing flexibility, his growing tolerance for noise and commotion, and (especially) his love of Disney movies and characters made us reasonably confident that he was ready.
We knew that it was a bit of a crapshoot, but the odds felt like they were in our favor.
And in fact, he did great.
It might be partly because Ben is a kid who can find as much joy in running his fingers along a textured yellow line on the ground as he does on an elaborate amusement park ride.
To sum it up, I would describe our trip as:
and zero meltdowns.
And those are some pretty good numbers.
