Day 4213 Of Parenthood


                 DISNEY DAY HURRAY!!
Remember the free Disney vouchers my family received?

give a day get a day

“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!!
mickey-mouse-7  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.

IMG_0227 IMG_0183   IMG_0303My 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!!

I just found your blog at Mom's of Boys on mom bloggers club and I really like your title. My husband and I are currently waiting for our 2 sons to become old enough to participate at Disneyland (as much as possible anyway). I too am kind of freaked about taking them somewhere with so many people but will have to bite the bullet (or bring one with me) and allow my boys the joy which your children just experienced. Cute pics! Good for you for braving the expensive and chaotic rite of passage that is Disneyland!!

At least they always find them! LOL I'm sure that was comforting...or not! We are going to Disney in May and I'm a little nervous. We'll just have to tether the children together.
