A brief apology to our Mothers

We get to the park exactly at 10:00 when it opened. Lucy was so excited driving over there until we had to stop at a red light and she was sure that we would never make it in.  She cries the entire time it takes to park the car.

Happy Dance!

We get through line and make it in to the park and we get to met the princess – a real princess (you know she’s real because she’s in PINK).

Holy sh*t a princess!
Holy sh*t a princess!

And then she sees someone without shoes and she doesn’t want to wear shoes! And she cries until we get in line for the train. But the first train is full. FULL!  And she cries the entire time it takes for the train to come around again.

After the train ride we go to ride the carousal, but she doesn’t want to ride a horse she wants to sit on the bench despite my repeated warnings that the bench doesn’t move the bench DOESN’T move! And she cries through the entire ride.

And then we ride the monorail but we just barely missed that too and had to wait. WAIT. And then we’re HOT so we decide to try the log flume ride and even after my repeated warnings that its going to get us wet –  it gets us WET.

Then we have to go to the bathroom – the bathroom is pink and says “Princesses” on the door but she decides at that very moment in time that she doesn’t want to be a princess ANYMORE  and refuses to go in.

After lunch we take a gondola ride, what could make you cry on a gondola ride? Well the fact that she didn’t see a single alligator, that no alligators attacked the boat! Not a single carnivorous predator tried to kill us.

We let her pick out one souvenir to take home, and she chooses a princess necklace and she’s happy for an entire 15 minutes and is thrilled with the tilt a whirl but then in the gift shop on the way out she realizes that her princess necklace is not the mermaid doll she really wants.

After a nice long nap we took her swimming (SWIMMING!) in the pool which was fun until she got water in her eyes and decided she’d rather pout inside.

This morning, I make her a perfectly golden Belgium waffle for breakfast just before she suddenly decides that she no longer likes anything  that has syrup on it.

After a quick trip to the Disney outlet store for a perfectly glittery Belle doll we stop at McDonald’s for a quick lunch before heading home, I ask her what she wants while we wait in line and she says… A new Mom.

Once home, cocktail in hand Jason sums up the entire weekend by saying. “I feel like I should call my Mom and tell her I’m sorry”


Newsletter: Month 34


This month has been absolutely wonderful you have decided that when you grow up you want to be a doctor and you also want to marry Cinderella…you are always fixing up our imaginary booboo’s and are a most attentive physician. You are also obsessed with painting your nails and wearing ‘big dresses,’ you cry whenever I suggest jeans.


We have had a lot of fun adventures including a trip up to Maine to spend some time with your grandparents. The entire thing was planned last minute and took place in between my switching jobs, because of this your Dad was unable to come with us, but once again you made me proud with your ability to travel so well. It helps now that you have your own computer and were able to watch Sesame Street over and over and over again while in the car. During out trip we got to go to the beach and see your cousins and watch the pigs and in general just had some great bonding time.

World's most beautiful cousins

At  the beach!

Too cute

Once we got back you fell back in to your normal routine while I slowly adjusted to my new one – the good thing is now I’m home consistently early every day to pick you up from school but I do have to go in to the office five days a week so keeping you home on Fridays is no longer an option.

You are very silly right now and you love to make up songs and dance around. We planted to new grass in the front ‘yard’ and everyday you cone home and beg to go roll around in it.

New Grass!

In sad news we had to let Guinness go this past month and you have asked for him many times but have been less upset than I was afraid you would be, you seem to be harnessing all of your efforts on harassing the cat and trying to strangle her to death.

choking the cat
btw – if I ever rename this website is will be called:
choking Mommy
Sometimes she chokes me instead, as a side note please enjoy my giant nose zit…

Your Dad and I spent a day with you at the zoo this month where you rode your first pony – you were so big and brave and hoped right on to it without giving a second thought to the fact that we weren’t right next to you. We also got to all spend the day at the Manayunk bike race were your favorite thing was jumping in the bouncy house and getting your face painted.


Silly Diva and Mr. DivaYour favorite things right now are: having long hair, big dresses, fixing booboos and ice cubes.

I love you so much, even if you wont let me put the windows down in the car because it “messes up your hair”
