I'm sorry that you had to be the brunt of DD's frustrations today. You're amazing, as are all parents who have children who are challenging. I know she needs you, but she just didn't demonstrate that very well today. Tomorrow is another day.

Have you thought more about the weekend trip?

Sorry you had such a rough time today Melissa, and I really hope your arm is ok. They can be soooo strong when they are upset. Tomorrow is a new day, hope you are relaxing a bit, and have had a hot bath!!

Melissa: Kook, Jen and DetTigs said it best. I'm just going to add one of these and send you a virtua-mega-glass of wine. Wine, rest and ibuprofen for you, my friend.

I_Heart: Oh. my. those. desserts! That is a very lovely sounding menu. I hope it comes with some to-go containers! (I had to go look up Confetti Popcorn. Going to add that to the list for next trip.)

Jen: I'm voting for the book, too, by the way. Book and movie together would be so excellent. Also, you should totally get an Oscar for that performance. I know I would have burst out laughing when they were talking about not going back so soon.

My planner told me that everything except the Mickey Bars (which are Bill on Consumption) is ours for the taking after the event so I am totally packing to go containers!

Melissa - a hot bath, glass of wine, and some relaxation sounds like it should do the trick! Hopefully tomorrow is better and your arm is less sore!

Everyone else - hugs all around!! Getting DS in bed finally so I can relax, maybe with a glass of wine and some Disney planning...did I mention I was pricing out WL CL and AKL CL today?? As well as switching back to a moderate or doing a split between a mod and CR... I think my TA was going to have a heart attack. :-)

Sorry you had to deal with that.

I actually had an issue with DD6 when I was picking her up from school today. I just needed her to change into her gymnastics leotard so we can get to class, just like every Tuesday. Well, she has been having one of those weeks where she is just being the biggest PITA about everything and this was no different. She kept saying she didn't want to leave, and whining but laughing at me when I was pleading for her to hurry up....she was refusing to change so I was literally going to just pick her up and being her home...skip gymnastics and she was going to her room....well, she said she was going to change but instead simply took all of her clothes off and refused to put anything on while she is arguing with me in the school bathroom. Smart little one, knows I can't just pick up a naked kid and drag her out to the car....

Well, I was losing it...and I don't lose my patience often...I was trying not to yell so the teachers would not wonder what the heck was going on, but DD kept escalating and being louder and louder ...and I flicked her in the forehead....

Not my proudest moment and I immediately felt guilty, but it was one of those things where she just needed sense "knocked into her". It was literally a flick and she starts screaming "you hit meeeeeeee!". I'm like seriously?!?! It was a bad scene I tell you....I was just waiting for one of the teachers to come in....

Long story short, she calmed down a bit. I carried her out. I cried in the car. We got to gymnastics and she apologized, which made me cry even more because I flicked her! I apologized and all is well now....it was just really crappy. I felt especially bad given what happened yesterday and that family that no longer has there little boy....but sometimes kids can make you sooooo mad...

Ok, I'm sorry for rambling....I feel better now that I got that off my chest. I am not a perfect mom.

Nobody is perfect, and I swear it's that age!! My DS is a completely different boy than he was before he started kindergarten. More often than not he is a PITA as well! But then he does something really sweet for his little sister or he gets upset and says nobody likes him or he tells me out of the blue that he loves me and my heart just melts...*sigh* aren't kids wonderful?? :-)

So what ARE the club level offerings like at WL and AKL? As for snacks, drinks, alcohol... :-) And what are the hours of the club lounges?

WL had a lot of yumminess! The evening appetizers included chicken wings, venison meatball, venison chili (both were my 1st time with venison and YUM!!), scallops wrapped in bacon, some sort of BBQ chicken on a stick....we couldn't make it every night, so we missed some stuff but yum!

And I think they have sushi now!

Also, the beers were Bud Light, Yuengling, a Sam Adams, and maybe....Moosehead or something like that?!?

We don't do hard alcohol so I can't really remember those....I know there was courvoisier...only because DH tried it and hated it!

Thanks!

I think DD was just surprised that I did that, because I never really lose it (I am very patient...too patient), and never get physical. But I was to the point of "Snap out of it!!!!"

Hugs Candace, been there. You're a great mom. They like to test us that's all. It's a new day!

My lovelies will not sleep in no matter what. We've tred putting them to bed later than they normally go, and without fail they are up at 6 am. And they wake us up too. Frustrating. Love the little monkeys, but would love for them to at least get to 6:45 am!

There is my rant!

Happy Disney Eve! Right behind ya!
