When you wish upon a star



Two more words: MICKEY MOUSE


And take a look at this face!


Yep - our little family of three will soon enjoy a vacation at Walt Disney World! I am beyond excited. I have been to this magical land 4 or 5 times in the past, and I love it every time. With Amelia in tow, this is going to be the best visit ever! I cannot wait to see the gleam in her eye as she takes in the sights of main street U.S.A with Cinderella's castle looming beautifully ahead. I look forward to her giggles as she experiences the rides. I'll keep an eye out for characters and princesses so she may have her chance to meet them in person.

The great folks at Disney will supply her with a "my first time" button to wear throughout her trip. This button will ensure extra-special attention and service for our special princess. Soooo excited! Really, I am at a loss for words.

I am a rookie mom. Amelia is my one and only, and I am figuring out this mommyhood adventure one day at a time. As a rookie mom, I totally overcompensate by planning. I plan out everything to the last detail. I always want to be prepared. Experienced mamas probably toss the kids and some snacks in the car and head on over to the park. Not me. Even though we're not leaving for a while, I am already planning out the contents of our backpack.

So far, these items will be included in my Disney World Survival Kit:
  • Antibacterial wipes (don't want to catch nasty viruses!)
  • Small packs of tissues (for those stray boogies)
  • Travel size sunscreen (for my princess' fair skin)
  • Amelia-sized sunglasses (Tinkerbell, of course)
  • My sunglasses (necessary in sunny Florida!)
  • 8-oz bottles of water (hopefully small enough so they'll let us bring them in, saving on expensive park drinks)
  • Granola bars and peanut butter crackers (again, trying to save on pricey snack breaks)
  • Band-Aids (Disney characters, of course)
  • Baby blanket (to diffuse tantrums)
  • Small umbrella & ponchos (if the forecast is more than 20% chance of rain)
Surely, this rookie mom will be ready for anything!

Got any other suggestions?
