A castle in…

WDWCastleYes, we are headed to see this castle in Florida in a few months.  You know the one.  A business trip in Orlando will be near this magical place and so…we are going.  Does anyone have any points, tips, tricks, or hints?  We won’t be staying very long but I want to make the most of this trip for my four and two-year old girls.  Mia is SO in love with princesses and we dress up and pretend ALL of the time.  I am always the prince when we play.  What?  Why don’t I get to be a princess?   Oh, I guess I lost track of my point.  Oops.  Since I’ve never been, I just thought I’d ask in case you have learned a thing or two in your adventures.   Leave me a comment if you have pointers.  Thanks a bunch!!!

Tools for your life

I ran across a website, Bee Wise Bags, and while perusing the site, I found a resource of  wonderful lists to print off and use.  This company makes reusable items and 10% of their profits go to another organization in India.  Go check it out.  ANYWAY…what I really wanted to share with you is the Tool page.  If you like to use lists, you just might enjoy adding one of the lists to your life.  I for one will be using the “Task Tool”.  I just now to have get an accountability partner to use some of the other ones. 


I have some fun things to announce shortly, (no, I’m not having another child) so don’t you dare miss it!  Shall I tease you?  It starts with Free and ends with bies.  Did you get it?  You are SO smart.

Love on the brain

For some reason, my four year old is VERY interested in weddings, falling in love, and marrying…right now!  What is up with that?  Today Mia saw a father walking with his son down the street and proclaimed to me while the man was still within hearing distance, “I’m going to marry him.”  I couldn’t help myself and laughed out loud and then I asked, “Which one?”   She informed me she planned on marrying the father.  HA!

Then, when I was making dinner, again Mia came to me and said, “I have fallen in love with (we will just call him John to protect his identity).”  That didn’t make me laugh.  I gathered my thoughts and then calmly asked if he was a nice boy.  “Yep” was all she said and then ran from the kitchen leaving me reeling.  EEK! 

How funny that she is thinking about this all so much.  It isn’t like we have been watching movies or cartoons about weddings or discussing falling in love.  I love her little mind.
