Due to ‘the ministry required limit for a private daycare’ or something along those lines, my brother’s special needs preschool can take him for half a day five days a week– three times for the morning and two times for the afternoon. Whatever the time, the kid has a ball and my mother gets a much needed break.
Today, just in time to kasher (think spot removal meets sanitize with corrosive chemicals) the kitchen, she got six full hours off.
Why? One of the kids in my brother’s class had already gone on vacation, leaving an ‘extra space.’
The wonderful staff volunteered to host him the extra half day so that he could attend the mock Seder. Beyond amazing!
