Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Three... C 32, P 39 - The End...Or Is It?

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for three...

And so it began. What was started as an idea, bourne along by my rampant imagination, turning into a pre-trip report, resulting in numerous relationships and musings, for which I am eternally grateful, finally turned into our trip.

And so it began...

But not without some short introductions.

TK - That's me! Lover of all things Disney, lover of all things pirate...especially Captain Jack Sparrow...ahem...

DH - My very own Jack Sparrow. Lover of all things Batman/comic book, but also, therein lurks a Disney fan, my friends. You'll see.

DS - My little peanut. He is our boy, a blend of our two personalities and likes and dislikes. It can be amazing and downright frustrating!

For further details, and the rampant wanderings of my crazed mind, feel free to visit the pre-trip report.

And so...we begin...

Chapter One - "We're going to Disney World!!!"

Chapter Two - In which I surprise even myself...on two counts, at least.

Chapter Three - The Wilderness Lodge

Chapter Four - The Best Day Ever

Chapter Five - The Best Day Ever, Part Two

Chapter Six - Did TarzansKat meet LegoMom and various other points to our evening...

Chapter Seven - Tick, tick, tick...boom!!!

Chapter Eight - Tick, tick, tick..boom!!! - Part Two

Chapter Nine - The Healing Power of the World Showcase

Chapter Ten - A Touch of Destiny

Chapter Eleven - So Did I Pass Out or Not?

Chapter Twelve - Before We Move On

Chapter Thirteen - How Many Cast Members Does it Take...

Chapter Fourteen - "Wow, it's like night and day!"

Chapter Fifteen - You Want To Do Character Dining With The Child Who Refused To See Characters?

Chapter Sixteen - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - The Process

In Honor of the Headless Horseman

Chapter Seventeen - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - The Arrival

Chapter Eighteen - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - Who Did DS Want to Meet?

Chapter Nineteen - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - "You're Not My Best Friend!"

Chapter Twenty - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - The End

Chapter Twenty-One - We Just Spent HOW MUCH on Lunch?

Chapter Twenty-Two - We Have a Nugget Down, I Repeat, The Nugget is Down

Chapter Twenty-Three - Boma - Why Have You Forsaken Me?

Chapter Twenty-Four - Where Do Pirates Really Belong?

Chapter Twenty-Five - Shouldn't I Have Had Some Rum to Feel Like This?

Chapter Twenty-Six - "When The Crypt Doors Creak and The Tombstones Quake..."

Chapter Twenty-Seven - One of the Best Nights Ever

Chapter Twenty-Eight - The Day We Did Nothing

Chapter Twenty-Nine - "Put On Your Sunday Clothes When You Feel Down and Out"

Chapter Thirty - The Last Day

Chapter Thirty-One - Would You Like Some Snark With Your Southwest?

Chapter Thirty-Two - Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life For Three

Eh...the post Disney depression hasn't fully set in yet. I anticipate it will hit full force when I go back to work on Wednesday. Blech.

Welcome! Thanks for reading. And an update will be coming up, hopefully this evening.

Just a warning though.

When reviewing my notes, I see I wrote a LOT about this day. Therefore I expect it to be a few installments! However, the boom is pretty much in the next one, for all of you on the edges of your seats. Stay tuned!

I SWEAR, I am hanging on the edge of my SEAT!!! ;o) I can't wait for more, but at the same time, am nervously holding my breath about what is to come!!! ACK!!!

And I JUST have to say, you by NO means are a horrible or selfish mother!!! What you did, was EXACTLY what every conscientious Mommy would have done!! I don't know how much I have told you about Megan's situation, but I have QUITE the experience with dealing with meltdowns due to Megan's Sensory Integration Dysfunction. It is easy to feel at the time like a horrible parent, but in the loving way in which we deal with the meltdowns, our parenting "greatness" shines!!! Good Job Mom!!! ;o)

I'm not sure I really know what that is. If you feel like talking about it, I'd like to hear more on the Lapuette thread.
