The Simple Life



We haven't taken the kids on any fancy vacations (can you imagine us bringing our Hinckley circus on a plane?) I didn't realize, however, that maybe the deprivation of the luxe life could work in my favor.

This morning when we were in the cheesy Disney section at Pay-less, Will's eyes got all big as he looked at the plethora of Lightning McQueen memorabilia. Then he asked hopefully, "Mom, is this Disneyland?"

I should have let his hopeful dream live on in his heart, but I felt that I needed to tell him the truth. "No son, this is just a shoe store."

Maybe though, I should take him to the Disney Store--that could maybe pass for Disneyland.

Awesome. I once tried to tell Sebby that Sprinkler World was like Disney World, but then I didn't have the heart either. Although to him, maybe it was.

That is awesome! We are taking our little ones to Disney this fall and I'm already nervous!

Actually, at that age - the store counts.
