Can you believe that it’s October already? I went shopping today, and I saw Christmas decorations displayed! Let’s slow down a bit and enjoy each season as it comes. October is a fun month with changing leaves, autumn decorations, and Halloween! Cerebral palsy doesn’t have to prevent anyone from having fun in October, but there are some things that need to be considered.
A few weeks ago, I did something that I’d never imagined I would do. My children and my nephew had a day off from school. We discussed activities that we could all do together. I had the idea of going to an escape room. An escape room is an adventure game in which you’re locked in a room and you use clues to solve puzzles to unlock the door so you can escape.
After doing a Google search, I found an escape room nearby. We called ahead to make sure that it had wheelchair accessibility. All rooms but one were accessible. The options included “Toy Story” or “Scare.” My nephew immediately chose “Scare.”
My 12-year-old daughter and I were reluctant because we don’t like scary things. However, this year we’ve decided to try to overcome our fears. We conquered the highest roller coaster and went on rides that we never thought we would. So, we agreed to give it a try, although we were nervous.
