We Made it to Disneyland!

You may have seen my post from last night that highlighted some of my concerns about the trip I had planned today to fly to California with my toddler to spend the weekend at Disneyland.  While this morning was a bit rough as I wasn’t feeling 100%, once we got to the airport, it was such a great day.  My toddler had a five star travel day.  When a baby nearby was crying she said, “Mommy, tell her that toddlers don’t cry on planes”.  I said that is true, toddlers don’t, but sometimes babies do.

We went to the park almost as soon as we landed and she lit up like a Christmas tree when she saw a parade coming down Main Street.  The Winnie the Pooh ride was also a big hit.

It is now almost 11PM Central time, and my kid is still up having a blast.  I am trying to get her to go to sleep since I know she will inevitably crash tomorrow, but needless to say, she has had so much fun already that the trip is already worth it.  Even though she went to Disney a year ago, she is so much more aware now than then and keeps saying, “one more ride!'”  Not surprisingly, posting from the road while traveling (alone) with a toddler is next to impossible, so apologies in advance if you see a drop in posts for the next couple of days.  Sometimes you just gotta “log off” and enjoy the points you have earned in action.

  1. Congratulations to a really great Mommy….

    To my great disappointment, my parents didn’t take me there as a child, so I had to take my Mom there when she was in her 50s. She felt akward there as an adult, until she met a couple in their 70s, there just to enjoy themselves. They said:
    “we have been here lots with our grandchildren, this time is just for us”. Then she relaxed, and really enjoyed herself…. :<)

  2. So glad your kiddo is having a blast! Hope you’re feeling okay.

    When are you leaving? My kiddos and I are flying down later this week. If you’re still there, I’d love to treat you all to ice cream or something quick so your little one can get back to the rides…

    Hope you have a chance to logoff and enjoy your vacation…you deserve it! (And yes, it’s a lot of work, but it’s worth it…I also have a two-year-old.)
