Just seeing this now! I sympathize deeply about losing your mom before your child was born - I don't have children but I have sort of a sadness about the idea now that Mom is gone, like it wouldn't be fair...

At any rate, I hope that you had a wonderful time. I just made reservations for my second trip without Mom, and I know I'll have fun even though I'll remember her and wish she was there with me. And part of her will be, somehow.

Tavie, thanks so much for starting this thread. I am just seeing it now.
My mother died in Oct 2011 just 7 months after my father passed. They both loved Disney and asked me to take them there as often as I could.

I will always miss them but I also cherish the memories that we all created on our trips. I have only made a few trips back since losing my mom and they were difficult. I too found that it really helped to say things out loud like, ""Mom loved these flowers or "Remember the time she hugged Goofy?".

My mom was a best friend too and a really incredible mother. She is always in my heart and mind but I miss her so!

SOmehow I have completely missed this thread. My apologies.

My deepest sympathies to everyone who have lost on this thread..
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
