One thing I'm still having an issue with is that we will have to take DD8 out of school for 1.5 days again (we are already doing that in April)....
Oh, the "no change fees" bit gets a from me then.

Hi everyone! New to the thread by fit in completely! Lol! We originally were booked YC CL for our December trip...then we found out a new baby would arrive in July and hubby started a new job, so we switched to Pop. Solely thinking to save a ton of money. Realized we would be extremely unhappy at a value, had the money to book BC CL. But then AP came out and hubby always wanted to stay GF.
So same money we'd be spending before but are now Sugarloaf for half the trip and RPC for last couple days.
Now I'm considering trying a whole new resort instead of sugarloaf...really wanted RPC for the whole trip but its not available 1 day in the middle of the trip.
Oh and I fall into the MIL didn't like me after children arrived seems they always know better and you are doing it all wrong!

Hey ladies I just read through but don't have enough time to comment, you know I will latter.

Here's my quick run down:
- DS seemed good this morning so off to school he went
- Thumbs up from surgeon and don't have to go back unless there is a problem
- DD called that she had an accident at school (this has NEVER happened before) but I was sitting at the surgeon so the secretary took care of it with clothes they have for emergencies and told me not to worry. I know this happened because DD was in a mood this morning and wouldn't pee before she went to school.
- got sweatpants at Justice for DD, Ketel One for me, and Bacardi Torched Cherry for DH, you know the important stuff for WDW

Now to pack up snacks so I can get the kiddos and be off to DD's therapy appt. oh the fun never stops

Happy Monday!!!

We're thinking BWI...we love the Epcot Resort area. Beach Club was our absolute favorite but I want to try other resorts. I'm sure they all have their positives and no other way to find out unless you try them all

She'd sit in the room where they would be watching TV and color or read and play with her toys quietly. When she would start talking to her dolls, MIL would turn the volume up on the TV. Not even talking loudly ... just a quiet kid talking to her toys. That's how little they want to do with her. 5 minutes of interaction the entire time is a very generous estimate. Never calls here. Never asks how she is or what she's doing in school. It just boggles my mind. I truly don't understand it -- how someone can be that disinterested. We have an ocean between us so I don't need to deal with it too much anymore, thankfully. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent, ladies.
This just breaks my heart. You would think they would be all over themselves to take advantage of every last second.

I wish I had my ex-fiancee's mom for a MIL. She was so awesome! Her son, well.... I made the right choice, but still.

You should totally change your screen siggie to call yourself Evil Son Stealer.

Yep, for us it went downhill after DD8 was born too, and I all of a sudden I was doing everything wrong, not sharing the baby enough, too much on a schedule, I was making her stutter (she outgrew it ). I just took her criticisms with a stiff upper lip, but always vented to DH. The poor guy. It wasn't until after she started treating the DD's poorly, and outright yelling at middle DD all the time that I politely told her no more. Really I was polite!! But all h**l broke loose with DH's siblings too, how dare I cross mommy. So it brings us three years later to this point. But honestly we are good.

The AG dolls that I got for the DD's all have different eye colors (like theirs) and slightly different hairstyles. I am sooo excited to give them these dolls! Usually it is DH that overindulges them, so we have kind of switched roles....and I like it!
I can feel the excitement in you words! What a magical day you have waiting for you

DD8 eyes are a little lighter than DD6, so we got hazel for DD8 and brown for DD6, but otherwise, the dolls look the same.

I can't wait until the girls get them!!! It's literally the only
thing they have asked for!!!

Problem is, we are only 45 minutes from Boston and the girls know it...they are going to want to be at the AG store all the time!
Ut oh, have they perfected batting their eyes at daddy yet? Maybe you better hold off on SWW and see how many AG store trips are in your future first

All this AG talk has me excited for when my DD gets older. I can't wait to do girly things!

I am very thankful for my Summer trip, and I'd like to do the family proud by leaving it as is. Everyone is all jazzed..we have many GF based plans already. DS11 loves the Beach Pool slide...I couldn't entice him with SAB There is so much the kids haven't done or seen...Test track refurb, the girls want to try ToT...all the new Fantasyland rides...the new Gasparillas!! And the thing with GV at the Grand...you can't go wrong! I did promise the kids a neverending supply of snacks...so it's time for the Pas clan World Cupcake Tasting Tour
Sometimes even a diehard RCer gets it right the first time! I'd say it's definitely GF time for the pas crew. GV wll be perfect. CL x 2 is really a poor value. Really. Of course I only tell you that because it helps resist the urge.

A cupcake tour sounds wonderful!

How bad is the attendance policy? 3 days total doesn't sound too bad.

I'm glad DS was feeling better and I'm sure you are very relieved to get the all clear <phew!>. Your poor DD though Bacardi Torched Cherry? Never heard of it. Sounds yummy!

Second trip, second trip! If it was somewhere else besides BC/YC I'd be pushing the CL, but they are just not my faves. (says the girl who is staying YC CL next month )

Thank you! We're looking at any deluxe resort really, trying to stay CL...easier when you have little ones in tow to just grab a snack!

We've always loved BC but want to try elsewhere...hubby previously stayed at poly & I stayed YC (non club for both), we love the Epcot area but our 3yo spends a lot of time at MK. I'm open to suggestions but I may change a few more times before we go...besides I have up until 5 days prior before seeing a change fee!! Lol!

I'm so sorry you have to deal with inlaws like that and your angel has grandparents like that. I can't imagine my parents or inlaws being like that with my boys. Especially if they had an ocean between them.

I do hear you on the ease of using CL. We have 4 kids and the convenience factor is what keeps me booking it!

Strictly speaking of CLs, my top 2 are BWI and RPC. However, overall my top 2 resorts are Poly and YC. Clear as mud, right? Have you thought about a split between a MK resort and a Epcot resort?

Your trip is so soon! I can't wait to see where you end up!

Your life -- we can definitely say it's not boring! Fabulous news from the docs. Got the necessities for the trip, I see.

Putting another vote in for BWI. Just because you've already done BC&YC. I just love the Epcot area.

Thanks muchly. I hate whining about it but knew I'd get a sympathetic ear here. The RCing sisters just understand! Yeah, that's what I thought as well -- hadn't seen her in over two years, you'd think they'd show a bit of interest. Not in their genetic coding it seems -- they're totally devoid of any grandparenting prowess. I think there might be a theme we have going on here in this thread... my ex's (ex of many, MANY moons ago) mom was really sweet.

That would be an excellent moniker...

Thank you. Gets me a little sad every now and again because I think about how they're missing out. Anywho! They are quite an interesting pair, my in-laws. I'm much better at handling "interesting" now that we've got a 4,000 miles between us.

Oh, a video?! Do they have a "Purl for Dummies" one? My one attempt at knitting (only knit stitch, mind you) still sits upstairs in a cabinet... all 8 or so inches of it. Maybe I should make it into a neck gaiter?

Haha! I was leaning towards BWI since we've been to BC already and the Yacht Club is almost one in the same. I'm already slightly disappointed with IPO from GF. They haven't been helpful at all...hoping the club staff makes up for it!

Hi jcondrad, I'm still getting caught up from our trip, so my posts have been sorta short. Just wanted to add my two cents...
I love, love the Yacht, Beach and BWI IPO. They are really fantastic. Whether I email them, or call, they are always so responsive and prompt.
If you book CL at any of the Epcot resorts, I think you'll like them.

I had grandparents like that, but they lived less than 30 minutes from us. They missed more of my birthdays than they remembered. The only thing I ever did was that I had the "nerve" to look like my mom's side of the family instead of their's.

I learned a lot from the tutorials at knitpicks.com. I don't know what style of knitting you tried, but that might be some of the problem. I tried continental knitting and I couldn't make it work. English style may work better for you.

That's too bad. Was there something specific, or just an overall impression?

I love, love the Yacht, Beach and BWI IPO. They are really fantastic. Whether I email them, or call, they are always so responsive and prompt.
If you book CL at any of the Epcot resorts, I think you'll like them.
I agree. They are all great on the Epcot side.
