My lap top is missing keys.... wifi is slow and the page cuts out .... so last night I tried to use the handy-dandy mobile version... and it jacked up the post so badly that I lost most of it and then it locked up my account.
Speaking of good times..... we had a GREAT DAY at Disneyland!!!!!! Of course we are all sunburned and the kids *literally* passed out on the living room floor.... The Girl is still doing some kind of downward dog yoga pose: she's too tired to straighten out! lolol
We had an excellant day that started out with a One Direction breakfast (where the value of Justin Beiber vs. One Direction was hotly debated - you'll be happy to know that The Girl stood her ground on that one!). And then we were off to The Happiest Place on Earth.....!!!!!!
It was PIrates and Haunted Mansions and Alice and Peter and Small World..... almost all before lunch! There were Princess's to be seen and parades to watch.... the kids had a blast. The *coolest* part was watching our four kids bond - running and skipping and holding hands.... it was the cutest dammed thing ever.
Then they made me go on the Rocket ride in Tomorrow Land..... Motherf*Cking ride...... I enter the car with Th Girl and The Birthday Girl who is nine..... and The Girl fly's the dam car straight up and HIGH - as HIGH AS IT CAN GO!!!!!!! and me being scared of heights and all.....
Let me just put it this way - we got off the ride and Lashla said, "You looked terrified - how was it?"
To which I said, "Well, it was fanf*ckingtastic - and now your nine year old knows about 100 ways to use the word f*ck in a sentence and I won't appologise for it...... lolol"
To which Lashla replied, "Well, I'm not surprised, I would expect nothing less....." lolol
It's good to have friends who know you. hahahaha
The day was fantastic - a bit hot and we all got sunburnt inspite of tons of lotion.... especially me. Stupid pale, Irish skin.... it's not too bad though.
At the end of our magical day - we were shopping.... there was a snafu with some gift cards the kids were given which turned into a 45 minute fiasco while various cast members were solving the problem. At which point The Girl was sobbing, face down on the check out counter. People were staring at me as though to suggest I needed to stop what I was doing and take my kids home immediately.
Somehow during the chaos and the crying - The Boy wandered away and got lost because one shop leads to another and another another and suddenly he found himself several stores away......
Of course, practicing my skills for Mother of The Year: I didn't notice.
All of a sudden my phone is ringing - and unknown number at 11pm? I'm not answering that I mutter in disgust.
Then they call back.
A few minutes while trying to wipe up the pool of drool and tears The Girl is leaving on the counter - I notice that The Boy is gone ..... hhmm..... The Boy is: gone.
A small amount of panic is setting in and now The Girl is freaking the f*Ck out because she realizes brother is gone..... which leads to more stares (clearly people are impressed with my mothering skills....).
A few minutes later, security has come running (like - as if they came straight out of the freaking walls.... like swarmed us in a milisecond) - and people are talking on headphones and walkie-talkies.... and it's about 30 seconds (IF THAT) because a burly man puts a comforting hand on my shoulder and say's, "No worries Mom, he's been in the hands of one of our Cast Members this entire time, they are walking him here now."
Up walks The Boy and a Cast Member who is smiling ear to ear, she quickly tells me, "You have quite the young man here - he walked straight up to me, read the name on my badge and told me that he wandered away from his Mom but that he knew your name and phone number......"
Oh.... that'll be those missed "Unknown number" calls.....
They gave him a special button for being an "honorary citizen" and everyone praised him for knowing what to do...I however, wondered if there was a shopping bag big enough for me to hide in.
So..... this trip is kicking this singly Mom's ass just a little bit.... lol
Today's only goal: don't lose anyone.
I'll let you know how I do with that tomorrow. lololololol
