Trip to Disney (again)!

ImageOkay well In September I will once again be visiting Disney World! All of our reservations are made and now it is just time to wait. I must say I am excited to go at this time of the year, historically September is the least busy month to go to Disney so that means the crowds will be lower than what I am used to. Also I will get to see the Halloween decorations and I am also going to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! This party is new for me and I am very much looking forward to it. We will be gone from the 7th to the 16th and are going to have a total of 8 park days which is the most I have ever had.

My girls are going to have makeovers at the Bibbidi Bop Boutique and the Pirates League. Becky will be a princess (she is the Bibbidi Bop Boutique) and Faith is planning on being a mermaid from the Pirates League.

One of the best perks of this trip is my husband is coming! This means my parents will watch the girls one morning so my husband and I can take the Keys to the Kingdom tour and one night so we can have a date night. For our date night we are going to Epcot and eating in the London Pavilion my hope is we can get a patio seat so we can view Illuminations from our table.

There are a lot of firsts for me on this trip, 1) seeing Illuminations 2) seeing Fantasmic! 3) Mickey’s not so Scary Halloween Party and 4) Keys to the Kingdom tour. Also when we are down there we will get to see the new day time parade Festival of Fantasy.

I am very excited to be able to have this experience again and also to be able to experience new things!

What are your favorite things to do while in Disney World?

Mommy I Want To Be A Princess

The other day I was driving with my 2 girls while we were in the car my youngest (Becky) asked me if she was a “real princess” I told her that to me she is but no really is not because she does not have a kingdom to rule over. Then she asmer485858SMALLked how to become a “real princess” I told her that she would need to marry a Prince one day to which she replied “Mommy I will marry a real prince  and become a real princess” She is only 3, and my first thought was go ahead if that is your dream then you try.

Now I know today a lot of people feel that we tell our children who they should be; we tell girls that they should be housewives and boys that they need to take care of money. I do not agree with this, both of my girls have been raised the same way with a mixture of toys from kitchens to trucks and they have each developed their own identity.

Fancy Nancy My youngest is the biggest girly girl that you can meet; she always has to have a tutu on (think Fancy Nancy) and my oldest; yes she likes to be girly however she also plays soccer and has more fun playing with boys than she does with girls. Now my children were raised the same way (I actually have no idea where Becky’s princess style came from) and yet they are very different. One day I can see Becky being content as a stay at home mom while Faith is saving lives as a doctor with no time for a family.

We do not decide who are children will be they decide that, we just need to support them (even if they want to be a “real princess”).
