    It is so cool, because I did not realize Nemo didn't know! OOOhhh, I can't begin to think of the different ways you can tell him!

    I just wanna see pictures of his reaction on Facebook!

    Can't help you with the KOTS bit (because we all know that I'm blabberin' about my trips months (years?!) before I ever even book them!!:rotfl:)....

    But I just wanted to say how happy I am that you reached a turning point. :hug:

    YOU'RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!:banana:

    I just finished your whole PTR and I want to tell you how sorry I am about the loss of your mother. Mt GF lost her teenage son 2 years ago in October and she writes letters that are very similar to how your write about your mother. Your words are beautifully written. You are very fortunate to have had such a wonderful relationship with her.

    Your children sounds delightful and your upcoming trip sounds wonderful. As far as being a KOTS, good luck. I admire people who can do that. I am far too much of a blabber mouth.

    I look forward to reading more!

    what a celebratory post!

    Kots...I love that! And, as you know, I love surprises!

    Puzzle?

    you could do one just his right size to put together that either spells it out, has the words or...both :goodvibes

    I figured he must be three. That's so cute! :goodvibes

    It's okay not to be there. I wasn't there either. I was saying the words, but not feeling it. Now I actually feel it. And you'll get there, hon. You take your time, there's nothing to rush for. :hug:

    The secret keeping really sort of happened by accident and now we're just running with it. :thumbsup2

    Thank you so much for your kind words.

    I think I can do it, too. Because I think his reaction will be absolutely priceless! :goodvibes

    Pictures, and maybe if we're lucky, video!

    :rotfl2:

    Thank you!

    I'M GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!! :lmao:

    Thank you very much. My condolences to your friend. I cannot even fathom losing a child. That's one of the hardest parts, I think, for my Nana. She never expected to lose her daughtter.

    Thank you! I'm looking forward to writing more. :thumbsup2

    Nemo does love puzzles. Another great idea!

    You didn't know that acronym? Now I'm trying to think of where on the boards I picked it up. Maybe on the family board?

    Anyway, happy to give a laugh!

    HA! A little shameless plug. Happy Birthday to me!!!

    I'm having a great day birthday weekend. Nana came over last night, brought Chinese food, and we watched The Haunted Mansion with Nemo. She gave me a lovely new Vera for my birthday, and the Diamond Blu-Ray edition of Beauty and the Beast. Very, very sweet gifts, and it was just so wonderful to spend time together.

    I'd made my own vegan chocolate birthday cake, and this morning, I had some for breakfast, which is really the best way to start the day, I think. MJS insisted that I have two slices claiming that my first slice was much too small for my birthday, and really, I should have another. ;)

    Nemo and Squirt watched Nemo, first time for Squirt! So exciting to have him watch a movie that meant so much to Nemo as a kid, and means so much to me. I was able to take a shower in peace, and right now, Squirt is napping in his crib, also for the first time. Could this day get any better?

    Honestly.

    Heavenly.

    So to tie it all in and make it trip related, I'm going to reveal to you an ADR, because it seems fitting to do so.

    On our last full day, which would be Wednesday, the 2nd, we're having lunch at...


    drumroll please....




    THE CORAL REEF!!!!


    I thought about this, and it wasn't part of the original plans, but then I was thinking of how much Nemo loved this as a little one, the big aquarium, and the food's not too shabby, so the Coral Reef it is! I can't wait for Squirt to see it and for us to enjoy a nice relaxing lunch "under the sea."

    Well, that's it for me as I think Squirt is signaling that nap time is over! :lmao:

    Until later, folks! pirate:

    Happy birthday chica! I didn't know we were so close...mine is Wednesday. Of course I'll be at WDW :cool1:

    I've never been to Coral Reef but I've always wanted to try it. I think we spend too much time hanging out in the WS when we're in Epcot.

    Thank you!

    I really love the Coral Reef, and it's been a long time since I've had lunch there, so I'm looking forward to a different menu. :thumbsup2

    Thank you for your kind words.

    I can't think of a better surprise for Nemo than a trip to Disney!

    Thank you!

    Hey, since I won't be able to say it then, Happy Birthday! Not much cooler than a birthday in Disney World, eh?

    And, hon. Honestly. My mother would be the first to say there is no such thing as too much time in the World Showcase! ;)

    I KNOW!!!! How exciting.

    But did you have to get SO personal with the ticker, dearie? :lmao:

    Thank you! :goodvibes

    I did. It's been like a birthday weekend extravaganza, the good karma just keeps on coming.

    Thanks, Jackie! :goodvibes

    Thanks, Wings!

    It's definitely hard to keep it secret. We've taken to talking in code.

    Keep to the code! :lmao:
