We have been on the Disney cruise once before my son was born. I forgot to tell my husband the password, and he went to pick up Aubrey from the labs. They would not let him have her. They said even though it was obvious that Aubrey knew him and he was her dad, their policy was that if you didn't give the password, the child didn't go. I was in the shower when he called the room and didn't get the phone. So, he finally walked back to the room to get the password and went back and got her.

Ooohhhh you don't know how good that makes me feel! My mother and I have already decided the password but decided not to tell my daughter because she will tell EVERYONE what it is. This is really great. I figured they would recognize him from when your daughter was dropped of and say "well, we KNOW he is with her" but from this story, I dont think they would! Tooooo awesome. It is like when you check out and the cashier actually asks for ID!! I thank them profusely. But on a much higher level of course! hehehe

I was very grateful it was handled that way. As they said, if they ever break the rule then they lose control of the security and comfort that parents have with the program. I felt so much better about it. My parents travel with us a lot, but they weren't with us on this cruise, and my mom had given me a hard time about using the labs on the ship and had begged me not to use it. She was very happy when I told her about it.

Post Freedom

WELCOME axfather let me say what a unique name...I would have thought you had all girls.

I guess my daughter will not be getting much freedom then either... She's at the age where she is just begging for some freedom and as much as I would like to give her some there just aren't that many opportunities. I was hoping that the Disney cruise would be one of those opportunities. My husband is waaaaay overprotective (like he would probably want to hold her hand the entire time so she doesn't fall over board. ). I thought a Disney cruise would be the place both with it's confinement of the boat and it being Disney, and also all the Disney workers present. Without other parents giving liberties, I doubt we will, I was hoping for the buddy system. This is going to be a hard one for me... I was on a cruise as a child, with 100% freedom and still remember what it was like. I'm hoping hubby will at least let her run to the room by her self if we've forgotten something.

My DH doesn't go nuts over sports but listens to Cardinal baseball and keeps up on most sports. Yes he can talk sports.

What about HUNTING.... anyone?

We are MAJOR football fans. For me, it is only my favs I like watching. NY Giants, Colts, Denver Broncos now (I believe that is where Tim Tebow went), and the Ravens. Other than that, I am like....eh. But at the first of the season, I am pretty much up for any football! lol Other than that, we are not too big of sports nuts. I like watching my college's basketball games, but any others I am not really into.

I am sooooo excited that the trip will be around the start of football! I am going to be in that ESPN place any chance I can get Sunday Monday and Thursday!!

OH GOSH! I never thought of that!! :sigh: I feel the same way as a child I had soooo many more liberties than I give my daughter but I didn't grow up in such a horrible, perverted society. That is one of my biggest fears that someone will take her.

My DH and I are both huge sports fans! We met watching soccer, so there's that, we love to watch tennis and we are NY Mets/Jets fans. Also, NY Rangers.

However, my biggest thing is NCAA basketball (and football). I went to Syracuse Univeristy and let's just suffice it to say that I bleed Orange.

Marianne-Being a native NYer, I of course, despise the Red Sox, but DH actually likes them which drives me nuts!

(And I have a 4day weekend, so I have loads of free time!) whoo hoo!!!



How is everybody's Thursday going so far? I'm in a terrific mood! I've updated my FB status to something about 3 months from today celebrating my b'day in the Bahamas and I've been walking around the office singing Under the Sea! Co-workers are giving me strange looks! tee hee.
