I had to share this with y’all.
Those of you who were around almost four years ago may remember our first family trip. (McIntosh Family 1st Trip: A Tale) So many of you, like @SallyEppcot, @Outer1 (who I haven’t seen on here recently) @Wahoohokie, @alitig1, @LoveBug53, @JustKeepSmiling, @B-squared, @splashmommy, @brklinck, @Ellen1976, @PrincipalTinker, @atomic, @JJT, @BearsMom2011, @kristenabelle, @kellymouse5, @theredhead, @catdrj, @FlyerFan1973, @MagicMN, @amyscherz, @Jedilogray, and many many others, were so generous with your advice and support and cheering our family on.
That trip, as you may recall, was for our 3 dear daughters and princess lovers: Cora, Nola, and Vera.
You may also recall that my DW, Ashley, was pregnant with our 4th while on the trip. God help her.
We found out just a month after returning from Disney that our unborn baby was a boy - definitely a first for our family! He was born on May 23rd of 2015, and we named him Harry after Ashley’s dad who passed away just a few months earlier.
Well, Harry is now 2 and he is a passionate lover of Donald, Goofy, Stitch, Woody, Buzz, and even Elsa… but out of all, his highest affection is reserved for Mickey Mouse.
This has been a hard season for us as a family, but we are setting our eyes on a family trip at the end of May, primarily so Harry can meet Mickey Mouse on his 3rd birthday.
And I’m sitting at work right now, a little distracted, trying not think about the details of our Fastpass reservations (which I will get to book in the morning) and Ashley just sent me this picture with the caption:
“He has to have all the Mickeys today.”
I thought you guys would appreciate it…
Yup, don’t let the long locks fool you (mom can’t bear to cut his hair), that’s my buddy, and he is so ready for his first trip to “Di’ney Woll” (well, his first trip outside the womb, that is.)
Harry’s face and his love for Mickey are what inspire me on hard days. He helps keep the magic alive in our home, and I wanted to share some of that with this community that has been so awesome to me.
What inspires you on hard days?
Love you, Liners!
