As much as I hate to cancel it, I do think it's the best thing for us.

Thank you!! I have to say that our Target has a great $1 section. One of things I like is that they always have Disney books.

I don't think we have a 5 Below near us. If we do, I'm completely unaware. I feel so behind the times by just now bringing a pop-up hamper on vacation. I do think it'll make things a lot easier for me.

I hope between that threat & the privileges I've taken away, it will encourage him to behave better. We really do need this trip.....especially Ed. He has been working ridiculously hard lately.

Thank you!! They really do act up at the worst times, don't they?!?

I feel your pain, Briar has been acting that way the past few days, i told this morning at the bus stop that if he didn't adjust his attitude we would leave him with his grammy in 2 weeks. Hopefully that will work, I have already taken away his Xbox and iPod touch. I think he is just tired from being in school for 7 weeks, tonight he showered, brushed his teeth and went to bed 30 mins early (all without me telling him to).

I'm at least glad to know Reid isn't the only one. I've taken away all electronic usage: ipad, computer, iphone. And he's not allowed to watch any TV until he can show me he can behave well. He has a birthday party to go to tomorrow for a classmate. If he has a really bad day today, he may not be allowed to go.

I talked to his teacher when I dropped him off. She did say that a lot of them have been having trouble at school lately. She said one thing is that all the boys in the class are "rough & tumble" kind of boys. But, she also said that a lot of them have been going home sick lately: fever, tummy ache. Great. Just what I need. She said she's making them wash their hands more often & she is putting the soap in their hands instead of everyone touching the bottle. I'm praying we all stay well.

Just had to come here to wish you a happy trip!! I love the bags you have planned for Reid!!! As for CP.. as Betsy noted, we had that happen in December. I kept mine... and I still got to get into the park before opening. It was still magical... but yes, we lost out on some park time.

Oh and children's attitude?!!!! Yeah!!! Mine is HORRIBLE! Add in that she has her medical stuff that she is being defiant and rebellious with...and it has been bad around here in the mornings!!!

You know I fully support the idea of cancelling CP for morning park time. I think that's probably the best decision in that situation.

The treat bags look like a great idea. Hopefully they'll be enough to keep Reid occupied on the drive.

Thursday will be here soon, have a great time!

Hi Amanda!!!!

I'm glad you were able to make a satisfactory decision on CP. I think you will be character-meal'ed out by then.

Love the goody bags for Reid. Room on the Broom is one of our all-time favorite books!

Awww - your trip is so close. I can't wait for you to get back!

I love the idea of the pop up hamper. Now I need to go to Joannes. Like right now! Although I will still have to fold it all to put in the suitcase but I still like the idea. I have been checking the forecast daily. Have you?

Okay, so I got really behind, but I totally would have suggested canceling Crystal Palace as well. So hooray.

Your bags for Reid are so cute! That neck pillow is hilarious!

I honestly can't believe your trip is THIS WEEK. When did that happen??? Seriously.

Thanks!! I hope y'all have a safe & magical trip, too!

Must be something going on with all our kids acting up right now!

I'm happy with our decision to cancel CP. I don't think I would have been happy knowing the park was open & I was stuffing my face.

Thanks! I hope the treat bags will do the trick for keeping him happy & occupied. I will also secretly have a secret weapon - the new Avengers movie!

Thanks! I'm so ready for Thursday to get here already!

We do need this trip! Thankfully, Reid had a very good day at school on Friday. Let's hope this is a good week for him.

I am happy with our CP decision. And you're right - it's not like we're lacking in the character meal department.

Thanks! I'm happy with the way the bags turned out. I think he'll like Room on the Broom.

I'm so ready to go already. I think my brain is already in the Magic Kingdom riding It's a Small World.

I think that hamper would easily fit in a suitcase. It really does fold down pretty flat. I'm trying not to check the weather too much. But, yeah, I've seen it. Hopefully, like most times, it will be better than the predicted forecast.

I'm glad I made the right decision about CP!

Thanks! I had fun making his little bags. And I just fell in love with that neck pillow when I saw it.

I know, right?!? Thursday just really, really needs to get here now!!

I can't believe that your trip is almost here! I'm so excited for you, and I cannot wait to hear all about it.

If I don't get back here: safe travels! and have an AMAZING trip.
