Hi RCers, Time to play catch up and back read-I am so far behind. Things have settled down a bit here, good! I've missed popping in regularly.

Wookie and Koh-Thanks for the tip about the live updates in the Dining reviews!

GG-I keep thinking those Diva trips look very fun. 2016 might be the year!

Pas-Happy birthday to your DD!

We went for a drive on Saturday, didnt get too far until we had a flat. Fun times! It was damaged beyond repair, so we now have a new tire. Lifes an adventure.
I am waiting for the College softball world series that starts Thursday. Im a huge fan, I love this time of year!!
Sending good wishes and hugs to all the RC friends, glad it's a short week!

Jumping in to weigh in on the spoiling factor. I don't think either of you (or any of the lovely ladies on this thread) have anything to worry about.

I grew up pretty poor. One time we borrowed a friend's pop-up camper for a weekend camping trip. That was the extent of my traveling until I moved out on my own. I am the spoiled multiple deluxe CL trips per year girl.

Although I will say I am not spoiled or entitled in any way other than vacationing. I don't do shoes or purses. No clothes shopping except off-season clearance or... the THRIFT STORE I don't do makeup or mani/pedis. Really, vacationing is my only guilty pleasure so I don't think it's so bad.

My kids have done a lot of traveling. There are times when they act entitled. Like when we went to visit my sister last weekend and stayed at a TownePlace Suites and DD2 asked where her sunroom was. But most of the time they are very appreciative of what they have and they know that they are lucky. Really lucky. They all enjoy taking part when we do volunteer work and understand why it is so important to help others as much as possible.

All that to say, I don't think you can't point to any one thing that will create spoiled, entitled children. Continue to be the good parents you are, don't beat yourselves up, and enjoy your vacations. You work hard and deserve it

I am just picturing how cute it would be to hear your little DD ask where the sunroom was....adorable!

You and I are the same, in the low maintenance department I think, it sure does help out with the Disney savings!

So you get me on the CL, I can't believe how good it was for us. So much more relaxed and easy and took away heaps of stress. Loved it.

She's quite the character. Speaking of DDs... Happy Birthday to your DD pas! And Happy Belated Birthdays to Sue and Melissa!!!

I totally get you on CL with lots of little ones

Once DD is 3 I'll probably swing to the pas side of wanting it for the convenience, but not being able to justify the cost of upgrading two rooms. But who am I kidding, we will still fit at BWI in a Dlx CL room, so that is probably where we will land.

I've gotta change to report. I dumped RPC for more SAB time. Had to make the switcheroo to BC CL to make that happen but I'm excited try that side again.

New itinerary:
Poly GV CL 8/7-8/10
BC CL 8/10-8/15
AKV 8/15-8/17

Dani - You are getting so close! I cannot wait to get your perspective on the refurbs!!!

Big Hello to Miss, gwynne, basketlacey, koh, Janet, GG, wookie, and everybody else!

Thanks for this.

I am also pretty low maintenance....I used to do purses (before kids) several times a year, but after kids I stopped. DH bought me a really nice Coach purse 3 years ago for Valentines day and I have used it ever since! He is shocked that I haven't traded it in yet.

But, what I really want is my time at Disney with my family. And I scrimp and save for those trips. I proudly negotiated my cable bill down $50/month today and got to keep all of our stations!!! but, I was willing to let go of the movie and sports channels...

Of course, my children are both amazing today, and we talked to them about the behavior that bothers us and they were both genuinely upset. I think they get it.

Yay for saving money for Disney!

They get it Candace. I know they do. They are just little humans and as such they are imperfect. They will have their off moments as we ALL do. Cherish the good ones and know that you will be laughing at some of the less then good ones down the road.

I was just remembering a time when DS10 was about 2 and VERY challenging. He was annoying me by saying toybox over and over and over again. I finally told him that if he said it again he would be in his room for the whole afternoon. He got really close up in my face and said toybok. Little poop. I about lost it. Now it's one of my favorite memories. He still knows how to get his toe right up to that the line without crossing it, but he's a good kid. Love him so much

Family time is the best time.

Hahahahahaha! I love that toy box story....these kids sure know what buttons to push...

That being said, after our talk with the kids, DH and I talked to each other and came to an agreement about more consistency in our discipline and expectations of the girls.

We also decided that waiting until next August would be painful (for us ), so we are going ahead with the April plans but are not telling the kids. When we talked to them, we indicated that we don't think that going to Disney next year is a good idea....they were so bummed but understood why we were saying that...so, it will be a surprise trip in April (since they now think we are not going). Hopefully, they will just work extra hard to prove they are worthy...

They do have their moments, but I love them so much.

boy i think i need to maybe take some time off here. I know I do it to myself, but either I am seriously annoying to people or just come off all wrong in my posts. My thick skin isn't so thick tonight.

Oh no! What now??? I spent all day yesterday being attacked on a thread because I questioned why the OP was asking the Dis if the First Aid place had tweezers...when she was at the park..... I essentially asked why not go to first aid and ask, instead of posting on the Dis. I was told that this was rude.

There were alot of other posts that were very rude but a mod came on and deleted theirs, but not mine, so obviously I didn't cross the proverbial line...but I wasn't rude...just questioning the obvious....

Hi everyone! I have been super busy getting ready for our trip, and Saturday a dear friend passed away. He was a wonderful, shining star. A true angel on earth. He was 32, and it was a miracle he lived that long. He was born with Down's syndrome and his mother did not want him so this wonderful woman took him in. She also took in 3 other Down's boys. Damian had over 20 open heart surgeries and countless pacemakers. It NEVER stopped him (her! he would kill me if he heard me say him) from being a true DIVA! (Damian was a princess stuck in a prince's body ) One of my favorite trips to Disney was with his family. He was so full of love and life, and the world just will not be the same without him. I know he is at peace now, but I will miss him terribly. I am so thankful for all he has taught me.

I am really down to the wire with getting ready to go. Yesterday I did all the laundry. Today I worked so I got nothing done. Tomorrow I am off, but I have a doctor's appointment in the AM, then I will come home and pack all day. Lily's godfather is sleeping over to give me a hand with keeping an eye on her. At night I have to go to the wake, and find time for a pedicure sometime in there. Thursday I work until 7:30, then I have to go Target to get my Disney gift cards with a sweet 14.5% discount, then home to pack last minute crap and go to BED because we leave for the airport at 5:15!!! I am SO ready to be in Disney already.
