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.
