Today the kids and I are scrubbing all day so it will not look like a frat house around here when he walks in the door.
We spent the day at Disneyland yesterday. It was glorious. If you want to visit California and have a nice day at Disney with hardly anyone else around February is definitely the month. Wednesday seems to be the least crowded day of the week.
We went on all the kids favorite rides and instead of a 50 minute wait, most rides were more like 5 minutes. Pure heaven.
I had a bit of post traumatic stress today, however, while remembering our last visit.
The kids decided they wanted ice cream and I got them all strawberry ice cream bars. It seems these bars had been sitting on the dry ice a little to long and promptly stuck to Samantha's tongue upon contact.
Ever seen the movie A Christmas Story? The pole scene was lived out by my daughter in the middle of Disneyland.
She was SCREAMING. The Popsicle would not come lose. I told the guy at the cart that I needed something warm to pour on her tongue to release the Popsicle and all he did was stare there frozen in terror. I grabbed a water bottle that had been in the display and poured it in her mouth which did then release the Popsicle from her tongue and the screaming stopped.
The people standing around applauded. I don't think they sold very many ice creams after that incident.
Do you want to know what the Disneyland employee said to me after the incident????
Mam, I need that empty water bottle back since you didn't pay for it. I have to account for all my inventory.
And then we walked away into the sunset. With Samantha holding a warm towel on her bloody tongue.
Yes, another wonderful day at the happiest place on earth.
