So here I am…sitting on my couch on my day off work counting down the hours, minutes, seconds until the big reveal. We had a good 3 months of saying nothing, not slipping up talking about being gone on Christmas, making plans in secret. But it’s all going to pay off when around dinner time tonight, we reveal to the kids that we are going back to Disney…TOMORROW MORNING!
The “who” on this trip is myself, my sister, her son (nephew) who is 20, my DS13, and my DD11. My husband…what a great guy, is staying home with our very old (and very needy) dog. He doesn’t mind staying home alone, I think he kind of enjoys it. He is not the fanatic of Disney that I am nor is he all about Christmas. To him, we can celebrate any day…like the Sunday after we get back. So it’s just going to be two 40 something women and their kids. What could be better than that?
We plan to give them each one box to unwrap tonight, telling them that this is their only Christmas present. Each box has two Disney Christmas shirts, Christmas ears for my daughter and Santa Yoda hat for my son, and a new magic band. From there, they have to figure it out…no clues! I expect some very blank stares of “Really, mom, this is all we get?”. I’m certain that one of them will get it immediately and the other will take a while. We will see if I’m right.
I hope I can keep up with this trip report. In Sept, when it was just my sister and I, I realized how unattached I am from my phone. I’m not one to think about it much. But I think my DS and nephew will help me with that…they can’t ever seem to put their phones down. Ha!
So the countdown begins before my kids jump for the moon and panic all at the same time. After all, I’m already mostly packed and their suitcases are still sitting empty in the basement. Until tomorrow morning, stay tuned…
