I am a Christian mother of 5 boys and 2 girls. I always wanted to be a bread making, green living, coupon using, organic eating, skirt wearing, quiet tempered, well organized, person. Instead I am a donut buying, plastic cup using, online shopping, pizza eating, sweat pants wearing, loud mess.!
DISNEY DAY HURRAY!! Remember the free Disney vouchers my family received?
“Just bring your ID and children’s birth certificate to the main gate, and we will exchange the vouchers for tickets.”The only problem was there were 2 manila folders at home both containing birth certificates- hubby consolidated to one manila folder for the trip. Yup you guessed it. He grabbed the wrong manila folder. No ID no ticket. $$$$$ Ouch!! I was having a good wife moment and told him he was more important then the four or five hundred dollars it would now cost us to go to Disney for the day!! – We arrived at Disney and a very tenderhearted employee let my hubby use the boys social security numbers as their ID. PHEW!!Disney was fabulous for the kids, I am still trying to pinpoint an exact phrase that could capture how “The Parents” would rate the experience. In the first 4hrs. we made it to 2 rides, several bathroom stops, the gift shop, and had already had our first major kid meltdown. Only 7 more hours of this fun fun fun to go.
My most memorable experience was when a Disney employee assured me that in the event of a child getting lost, “Don’t worry about losing a child, WE ALWAYS FIND THEM!!” I am not sure if that info helped knowing they have 70,000 to 85,000 visitors a day!!
