Disney. The first of many posts so prepare yourselves.


Sooo.....we went to Disney.
We survived Disney.
With 3 kids.

Without booze.

Ok...I survived it without booze but my dear hubby required a beer IV the entire time.

Why you ask?

Because of this.


This would be middle child aka Rowdy who made our week away very ...um...difficult at times.

Were we surprised? No.
Were we prepared? Somewhat.
Did we still have fun? Yes.

Parents-1
Rowdy-0

Thank goodness we love him so much or we may have just left him there with Goofy. In our moments of anger and frustration I reminded myself that life is good. We were at Disney! The happiest place on Earth.

A 5 year old was not going to win.

No matter how hard he tried.

His need for control will be a huge benefit as he gets older and becomes a millionaire running his own billion dollar company.

I just hope he pays for Mom and Dad's psychiatry bills.

Wow. Kids not having fun where kids should be having fun.... so normal. Glad to hear we're not the only ones having those kind of days. ;)

That's just like a kid- all the planning, packing, preparing, money spent...and they have a temper tantrum. Glad you had fun anyway.

Your posts are so entertaining and fun to read.

I remember being at Disneyland and my 2 year-old had a pony tail that was falling out so I pulled the elastic out for her and then she threw a FIT, a FIT I tell you, because she thought there was now a bump in her hair. Good times. I am glad your persevered and emerged triumphant!!

Perhaps he didn't understand that he was at the HAPPIEST place on Earth? Did he not get the memo?

We went in September. And the only reason I went to Epcot was the booze!

Glad you still had fun! : )

(p.s., I can totally relate to the melting-down 5 yr. old. WHAT is up with that????)
