Hi all! Here I am again to do another PTR because I just can't help myself from talking to complete strangers that are fellow Disney lovers about our upcoming trip plans. I'm driving my DH and other friends crazy I think so I need an outlet So why did I title this thread this way? Well, those of you that followed my last PTR and TR know what happened but for those of you that didn't I'll enlighten you. DH and I took our DS (then 14mo) to WDW for his first time (our 100th seems like) in February of this year. No amount of planning could have prepared us for what happened. DS got a stomach virus on our first park day. He started off the day with throwing up three times in the food court at POFQ while eating breakfast. Then throwing up in the car on the way to MGM etc etc. It was miserable and I was so worried about him. He was pretty good most of the day for a sick 14 mo. But it was still miserable. We spent the next 2 or 3 days trying to decide whether we were going to stay or leave for his sake. We finally decided to stay because he seemed to be on the mend and we had a great day at EPCOT. Well, the great day turned into a nightmare when DH woke me up in the middle of the night having issues. I called the paramedics and while we waited on them I was dizzy and trying not to pass out and throwing up myself. Paramedics arrived and checked DH out. They decided to take him to the ER. I stayed behind with DS and threw up some more with a 103* temp. My BFF Becca came and stayed with me until DH got back from the hospital. Needless to say we went home the next day, ending our trip 3 days early. So, I'm sort of afraid that this PTR will be a jinx but I'm just so used to doing PTR's for my trips and I really love talking out all the planning with everyone here so I couldn't resist. I'm just PRAYING this doesn't happen again and that this PTR won't turn into another disastrous TR. This trip will also be to celebrate DS's 2nd birthday since we will be in the World on his actual birthday. I'm super excited about it! The last time we were at the world in December was '09, just 3 short months before I got pregnant with DS. I can't wait to go back. Disney knows how to do Christmas right! The When: December 15th - 22nd The Where: Pop The Cast: First up, there's ME! The captain of this boat. My name is Carla. I'm a 30 year old FTM that works part time for her Dad and loves the way life is right now. I love to quilt and sew, spend time with friends and talk about Disney any and every moment I can. Fav Character: Stitch! Here's me and my boy with Minnie Then there's my DH. He's along for the ride but LOVES all things Disney! I honestly can't believe he agreed to another trip so soon after our last nightmare but he's a trooper and too big of a Disney nut not to agree to go. I'm one lucky girl. Anyways, he's 31 and is a wonderful Daddy to his little mini me! He loves video games and guns and all things manly along with Disney haha! Not really a common mix but it's who he is. He won't talk about Disney 24/7 like me though. He tires of it rather quickly which is why I need this PTR! His name is Chris. Favorite Character: Robin Hood (the cartoon version) DH and our guy in front of Nemo in February And last but not least: THE BIRTHDAY BOY ALEX!!!! This little guy is our miracle and pride and joy. He's currently 18mo but will be turning 2 on the 17th on our trip. Our little Christmas baby! Current Favorite Characters: Mickey Mouse and Jake Here's a picture of him from his 18 month photo shoot from a couple weeks ago So there's the intro. I hope to make this interesting for everyone and get as much help and good juju from you all as I can so this trip is nothing but magical!
