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”

Word.

  1. No need to apologize as it all works out when you have your own children! And as you we love you through everything!
