When we moved to Delaware Sydney told Ms. Bridge and Ms. Ross that she had been to Disney World. Maybe in her dreams but not for real. I remember them saying we have to go to Disney together. I think the expressions of the kids is what gave us the best gift ever. I couldn’t have done this trip without them. We are family.
I had to keep telling people that Ms. Bridge and Rachel were with us. They could be talking with Harrison and Sydney and the workers would ask them if they needed any help. It was funny at first because I would say I have five people in my family and they would look around waiting for the other two people to join us. At one point I had to say that “Yes, these two white ladies are with me!” I think people were intrigued on how we knew each other. I did tell the airlines that they were my respite workers on the flight home. But when we were at the parks, I explained that this was her teacher and former paraprofessional. They thought that it was amazing that I brought them with us. But I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
The best part was when I had my mommy time alone and they took the kids around the park. The kids loved the roller coasters and that meant break time for me. As you can see from my expression on Splash Mountain, I am not a fan of roller coasters. And those that know me well, know I don’t like to get wet. Thanks Sunshine Foundation for the great ponchos.
I am forever thankful to Ms. Bridge and Ms. Ross for traveling with us. They had a chance to witness our family madness for a few days. They just might blog about it. They were able to experience Disney from a different perspective. What happens in Disney stays in Disney.
Tomorrow will be my last blog about Disney. I think I saved the best for last.
