If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

I Arrrrrr ready for the next update... uhm.. yeah Great update and I am glad I'm not the only one who can't sleep on my first night or night before trip either..also last night of trip lolololol!

That is great about the GAC card. Jack has undiagnosed ADHD, I bet that card would help.. I think.. actually I'm not sure I know what the card is! lol Btw, it is undiganosed because of me.. I don't like how his school treats kids with ADHD, they suddenly have a gray cloud above them, so I just work EXTRA hard at home to deal with it. Seeing as we wouldn't medicate anyway, i don't see how getting a dr to say it's true would be helpful? I'm glad they gave you an easy time about it though! I'm sure it made for a much more enjoyable time for her! and eased your minds!

Love that yall had the same blue on that day, very clever!

Ok, go! next update!

Yay for a great start to a MK morning!! Hahaha I always make an inordinate amount of bathroom stops too, don't be embarrassed! I once went with one of my friends, who commented very early into the trip that she could make an entire album of photos of the outside of the restrooms she'd been waiting at .

Oooh I'm excited for Pirates pictures!!

I love all the details, it makes it all seem real. I have never used the restroom at the TTC, maybe I will check it out next time.

Those pictures can't come soon enough, I'll be waiting.

Yay! Nothing quite like the first steps into the Magic Kingdom. It never gets old.

Also, judging by all your very subtle hints, I'm going to guess that your next step is to leave the Magic Kingdom, go to Epcot, and ride Living with the Land repeatedly.

It's brilliant insights like that that make me a top notch analyst

I'm so disorganized, I could really use a system like yours. Or any of yours systems, really. Actually, what I really need is you. Wanna come over help me figure out a system to organize my gazillion papers and have them STAY organized?

I love that your TR is so detailed. Details make it seem more real, and help the TR last longer. I hate when TRs end.

Arrrrr, I can't for the life of me guess wharrrrrrre you could be heading next...

Your box system sounds genius! I know how bad it can be to have five adults in one tiny room (last December haha) but I can imagine it would be more difficult when you have to deal with lots of baby AND adult things!

SIX hours of video? That's awesome. You did so much better than me!

Ugh... I'm sorry, but Disney and secondhand smoke do not mix. Ick. Ick ick ick.

YAY PIRATES LEAGUE! I'm so excited to hear about this.

As a mom who has a son with a grab bag of diagnoses in a PA school system. How are Jacks grades? How does he do with class? If he is having difficulties then you have have him evaluated to see if there is any special considerations that can be made for him in class (taking a walk around the hall to get the ants in his pants out, extra time to take a test if he is not finishing and so on) but you don't have to put him on meds. We went into Cody's 1st appt saying we would not medicate, but when she told us his other diagnosies (Aspergers, ADHD, Anxiety, tourettes) we decided to medicate with an antianxiety med (not a stimulant which would make a kid with anxiety worse). We have had to fight the school district even with all of that to get Cody the help he needed.

Anyway, go with your gut, if he struggles, it's best to get him help with school stuff asap as the older he gets the more 'i hate school' will be a common thread.

What a great start to the day! Other than the smoke of course. I get really sick from smoke, and it's so bad that I can smell it from the car next to me even if our windows are down.

I need to get a GAC when we go (in 2.5 days ) because my son has ADHD and SPD and can't handle a lot of crowds and people. He is good in small groups, large groups make him nervous and he flips out. He's been known to hit, bite, scream, throw things...and he doesn't remember any of it after. I am perfectly fine with things being slower for us, as long as we can have a good time and actually enjoy ourselves instead of trying to diffuse situations.


I can't wait to see more pics!

All caught up and loving it!

I feel such a kinship with you reading about your lists and systems. Really. I can almost feel Bryan roll his eyes when I say "I have an idea for reorganizing this. I'll just need to make a trip to Target"

It's late, I'm commenting on the most random things. I also have a teeny tiny bladder. Totally understand.

Boo for a long walk to OPR! How disappointing!

Loving the pics so far, and can't wait to see the rest of them

Hey Star, I should start with saying, Bob has ADHD. He is also a nurse (like you!!!). He was medicated his whole childhood and VERY bitter about it!

Last year Jack had a lot of the issues that you are speaking of. This year none at all! Well, he's still easily distracted, but I think being SUCH good friends with current teacher, and all the changes we have made at home have turned him around! Our biggest Challenge is homework. Which of course is done with momma (yay me :/).

I think in your case with the multiple diagnosis, you made the right choice for sure! and wouldn't feel anything but that you did the best you could!

So far he LOVES school, and has great grades, and surprisingly popular. Again, we are very close with his teacher and that helps tremendously.

Next year, who knows. That teacher won't know Jack, or us, or how we handle things, so maybe it will go there? But I'm hoping this is the year to set the pace of school is fun, if I do what I'm told XYZ happens.

I joked about Parent hood, but in all honesty, we have many of the set ups they do on the show for their son Max.

and to be honest, it has helped ALL of us, especially Jack and Bob.

I can never sleep in Disney World either! The excitement of it all just takes over.

How great is that box system you used?! I bet that made things so much easier.

I've never used those bathrooms at the TTC, but now I'm going to have to make a point to stop there. I've used the bathrooms at Target plenty of times, so I know what smell you're talking about.

Sounds like yall had a wonderful morning at MK! That's awesome that you & Brynn both loved Big Thunder!

Teeny tiney bladders unite! I knew I liked Target bathrooms, I just hadn't made the connection yet. My husband and I sometimes drink Starbucks Vias just because the smell reminds us of DW, any way to get a Disney fix is okay!

Love your picture effects and I've added bubbles to my list! MORE please
