Since having 4 kids means that I can get one of each type of reaction, I know to just work with what I got. A week of Disney, no dishes, cooked meals, room service. Who cares want they think. Actually, I let my non surprise child in on the planning earlier than my others. But I never do anything last minute as that means I am missing out on 8 extra hands - and we don't leave until the house and bedrooms are clean. Little ones of course are clueless and can only be prepared for what is going to happen next. Lol yes, we do monitor what they watch so no airplane or titanic movies!
