La la la la... I can't hear you.

My friend Karen just returned from spending two days at an amusement park with her seven children.

I am plugging my ears, singing really loudly, and not listening to a word of it.

We are going to Disney World, the happiest place on Earth. I fully intend to hold them to that claim.

We will be happy, dammit!

Our trip will be completely stress free.
The weather will be perfect and not raining the entire trip.
My children are going to be happy, smiling and polite at all times.
They are going to be overjoyed at all the food choices that come their way.
They are going to be thankful for their time spent waiting in line to go on rides and use it to meditate and reflect on their day.
They are going to sleep for long periods of time at night and wake up happy and well rested.
They will never whine and complain about wanting to buy overpriced tacky souveniers.
My one year old is going to be content to sit in her stroller and never want to get out and push the stroller herself, crashing it into the back of unsuspecting strangers ankles.
And my husband will be having way too much fun to mentally add up how much the trip is costing.

La la la la la la.

I'm not listening.

You might not be listening, but I am sure you can't resist reading this :-)

The drive down there will be way too long, and you will wonder why the heck you didn't just fly? Or get the darned DVD player. Don't blame me if you end up buying one during the trip!

All the junk food you bought will melt in the hot sun, and you'll end up buying way overpriced Disney junk food. How can you resist your 1yo who HAS to have a mickey shaped cookie????

The kids will never agree on which ride they want, and by the time you finaly make almost to the ride (after 35 minutes in line), one kid will have to pee extremely badly.

You will take turns stressing out and yelling, while the other tries to calm you down :-)

But it all will be worth it to give your kids wonderful memories, and a 17 hours ride home to whine that they want to go there again!!! :-)

Have a WONDERFUL time!!! [I am trying really hard not to snicker :-]

Disney is a wonderful place to take the children. We went a few years back, when we only had 4 children (now we are preg. with number 7), all the complaining, and whining and regardless of how hot it may be, it will all be worth it once you see the childrens faces while there
Have a great time!
