Working Mom Wednesday

Linking to awesome working mom blogger Julia @ Work, Wife, Mom, Life, this weeks prompt is: What was she thinking: write a post from the view point of your child, about yourself.

Christmas Day 2010 - you had the bright idea to take the entire family to Disney World. It didn't matter that the weather was sub-zero outside (40's) - hey - born and raise in Florida - that's SUB ZERO AND that I was getting sick with a cold!!! Anyway, after spending an entire day ignoring me while you packed piles of unnecessary things, we finally piled into the van. You forgot to charge the DVD player. AND you forgot to set up something to prop up the DVD player. Were you really planning to hold it the entire way??? Good thing I don't mind watching those 3 episodes of SpongeBob on your iPhone over and over.

The hotel room was fun but it's hard to fall asleep with the entire family in one room! Honestly, I'm surprised I got any sleep!!

Breakfast was tons of fun. I got to chase dad down in the buffet line, thanks for letting me out of the confines of that horrid high chair. Also thankful you managed to find a microwave to warm my morning milk.

So we spent the day at Downtown Disney ducking in and out of stores to stay warm? That's okay, I had fun playing with the mannequins.

The Ghirardelli fountain was awesome! Hot chocolate!! That helped take off the chill.

Since we missed an entire day in the park - due to the horrid weather, it's cool that you found a restaurant that had Goofy and Pluto. I hope you weren't embarrassed as I shrieked "Goofy" and "Puppy" over and over. Hey I'm only 2 once!


That's right, I made Pluto blush by kissing him on the nose! I'm sweet that way!!

So mom, we made it fun, but next time try going when the DVD player is fully charged, weather is warming, I'm not sick and you invent a turbo booster that gets us there in 60 seconds. DVD player is for entertainment later - naturally.

Oh my goodness, this was priceless to read!

I "remember" making the trip from Pompano to Disney when I was six...before DVD players and iPhones. How did I survive?!

Funny because I was just telling my students today about riding Space Mountain back then...and not really remembering much. :)

Cute! Kids are really flexible that way, aren't they? I like the picture. I didn't see her in there at first!
