Next month Autumn, Grandma and I are headed to . . . insert drum roll . . . Disney World! I have a seminar for work in Orlando June 19-21, so we are heading there on June 16th to spend a couple of days at the park before the seminar and then Grandma will take Autumn one day while I am in the seminar. Taking a not quite 2 year old to Disney should be VERY interesting. I've done lots of research on the do's and don'ts of taking little ones, so I feel like I will have realistic expectations and can generally be prepared. If you have any advice for taking a toddler please leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail. Currently Grandma and I are working on "Disneyfying" Autumn. She has been very into Sesame Street the past several months and I have told my Mom we need to expose her to more Disney shows, movies, characters, etc. since my Mom LOVES Disney and has always wanted to take Autumn (or really any kid willing to go) to Disney World. Lately Autumn has been watching the Mickey Mouse Club and other Disney shows. She also has a stuffed Minnie Mouse and a Minnie Mouse swimsuit that she loves. This morning after watching one episode of Mickey she asked for "more" in sign language. She knows who Princess Ariel is too. Keep us in your prayers next month, as travelling with a toddler and exploring Disney World, although fun, will also be challenging. Autumn has never flown before and neither of our flights are non-stop (Thanks Southwest). Good news though since Autumn is under 2 she is free to fly (in our laps) and free to go to Disney. This should be our cheapest trip to Disney World ever. Hopefully this will be our first of many trips to Disney World, as I hope to take Autumn and her sibling(s) and her cousins when they are old enough to enjoy it a bit more.
One more thing. I have a few baby items that I am getting rid of. If you are interested in purchasing them then shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also listing these in the Marketplace at church.
