You won't roll your eyes at me when I say I'm going to Disney again. You won't raise your eyebrows when I tell you I'm going to celebrate my 40th birthday by dining at Cinderella's Castle. You won't laugh at my detailed touring plans that are color coded and lamenated. I won't hear "Are you still talking about Disney?" from you. No, not you. You might be a little surprised to hear that I'm leaving my three kids behind. That just Dh and I going to recapture some romance and remember our Disneymoon that was what seems like a long 12 years, three kids, one dog, two houses and four careers ago. But once I explain that it is only a weekend, that we have taken our kids to Disney before and that we never took that 10 year anniversary trip we promised ourselves, I think you might understand. Sure I will miss the kids (not the whole time but I'm sure there will be moments when I wish they were with us) but I know they will be fine with my parents. Plus don't Dh and I deserve a little time alone? What about all those theories where you have to work at your marriage? After all these years of Mothering and catering to everyone else in the family I am so looking forward to this trip. It's going to be three nights of doing Disney they way we (ahem.. really me) want to do it. I find myself thinking I can't believe I get to go to Disney for my Birthday all the time. I can't believe that I get to leave the children behind and make this trip all about me-cause it's my birthday and I get to be the most important person of all on this trip. Not Dh, not my three kids, not my parents. ME ME ME ME! So if reading about a 40 year old woman celebrating her birthday by leaving her kids and doing disney with her hubby interests you stay tuned. I'd love to have you follow along with me. I promise to post some pictures and be back with the story behind the trip or how it all came to be. The next post has the links to each chapter so you can follow along.
