new, really. How’s about you? I’m thinking a lot about our impending vacation (to the Mouse place). I have a reservation for lunch with the princesses. In what universe have I become a person whose most expensive lunch ever is at a palace with princesses? That was a big splurge, so we’ll have to keep everything else low key that week. But seriously? She’s going to flip out.
I haven’t told her yet. The plan is for the day we leave, or possibly the day before. I truly cannot wait to see her face. Most of her friends have been to Disney, which is something she’s just figured out. She asked me if she had no birthday presents would that be enough to go visit the princesses? When I said no, she said, “maybe no birthday and no Christmas?” I told her we’d try really hard to go when she was 6 or 7. She suggested that maybe she could sell girl scout cookies to go, or else sell some of her toys.
She is definitely the right age for this.
She is going to flip.out.
We’ve had a spit of warm weather lately, so I was able to talk her into trying on all the potentially fitting clothes from last year as well as the collection of handmedowns, and it turns out she’s really well outfitted for spring/summer. I think I can even get a few more months out of her sandals—she’s right at the edge of them, but the toes aren’t over the top yet! I think the only thing I have yet to do is to check to see if the sunscreen has expired.
I’m a little worried about her making it for a long day at the park, and since we’re only going for two days, I know the days will be pretty long. We will definitely take a break in the middle, but she’s going to be sad if she misses the parade and fireworks, so we’ll have to go back. I wish I could bring her wagon. She’s too old for a stroller, but she just doesn’t have the stamina for a long day. She gets tired so much easier than other kids do. Perhaps that’s my workout plan for the week–carrying around a 40 pound weight!
Who wants to take bets on what crazy things she’ll say to the princesses? She was talking about them the other day and asked me if they lived in the same castle, and I said, well, Tiana married Prince Naveen, so they probably live together, and Cinderella lives with Prince Charming….Selam pipes up wtih,”just because they got married doesn’t mean they live together, Mommy” in her very best “duh” voice. She is sticking to her theory of all the princesses flitting about in long dresses in the same castle….kind of like a sorority. But with tiaras.
