Micah has some sensory issues that he's mostly overcome, but sometimes has small flare-ups that hinder his day. Sand has always been a trigger for him. He vomited the first time he was in a sandbox. We had no idea he hated it so much. Poor guy. But he's been to the beach since and has loved it, so we thought he was over all that. Except last year, when we were on a beach on Maine, and he started gagging because he was walking on the sand in bare feet. It was not a good day.
So really, the fact that he asked for this to happen today was nothing short of an overcoming miracle.
