Our big trip to Disney is coming up soon. The kids still don’t have any idea what we’re doing, they know we’re going on vacation, but they don’t know where. Carson and Ella both have their own ideas about where we might be going.
Carson thinks we’re going to that place Mommy and Daddy went this summer.
“We’re going to Hilton Head, I bet. And we’re going to go to the Tiki Hut,” Carson told me. I don’t think he really knows that the Tiki Hut is not exactly for kids, but for adults on a ten year anniversary trip who are looking to get snockered and have a little fun. That sure did make me laugh, though.
“Maybe,” I told him. As much as I enjoyed the Tiki Hut, I’m certain that Disney World will be a far more exciting announcement to Carson.
Ella is sure that we’re going to St. Louis to see Bigfoot, the monster truck. “WE ARE GOING TO SEE BIGFOOT!!!!!!” she said convincingly, slightly excited. Where she got this idea, I DON’T KNOW, but after I stopped laughing, her expectation got me a little worried. I mean, monster trucks are her THING, Mickey Mouse and his crew have a big job ahead of them, convincing Ella that Disney World is EVEN BETTER than St. Louis and Bigfoot.
Anyway, I’m sure it’s all going to be fine. It’s the happiest place on Earth, dammit, and dammit, we’re going to be HAPPY and have FUN!
In other news, I’ve been busy writing over at Southern By Proxy.
I talked about my top nine favorite books. I completely left off #10, A Prayer for Owen Meany. And I just finished a fantastic book, What Alice Forgot. I could barely put it down. (Those links? They’re affiliate links. Maybe I’ll finally get to buy that pack of gum I’ve had my eye on.)
I’ve also been talking about the transition from stay at home mom to work at home mom. All the same responsibilities and more!
