Naughty Pirates

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

We took our son to Disneyland for his birthday. Upon exiting the Pirates of the Caribbean ride he proclaimed, “Mama, those pirates need a time-out!”

Eat Up!

Friday, June 6th, 2014

While on our family vacation, I explained to my daughter that the hotel isn’t full of snacks like our cupboard at home. I tried to get her to finish her dinner by saying, “Here’s the thing: you need to finish your food because there won’t be anything else to eat tonight when we get back to the hotel.” She looked at me with a stern face and replied, “Here’s the thing: I don’t like it.”

Beautiful View

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

I was telling my son about the trip his father and I went on before he was born. I mentioned that the ocean had the clearest water I had ever seen. My son responded, “Clearer than the toilet?”  I really need to get my child to the beach!

Wish List

One day on our annual family vacation, we went swimming at the resort pool. My mom said she wanted to get something to drink. My son replied, “Well, I want to be tall, thin and blond.”

Magical Vacation

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

While traveling to New York City, we had told the kids that we might take a ferry across the river. My 6-year-old lit up with excitement, but then grew fearful when she asked if everyone could ride the same ferry. When I explained that we would all ride together, she asked, “Will we all hold onto their wings?”
