Toddler Reenactment

I have lost count the number of times I have watched Frozen. Emma watches it all the time. At least 3 times a week (the rest of the time is Ben and Hollys Little Kingdom)

Not only are we in the phase of watching and rewatching Frozen, but also the phase of role play and pretend imaginary play.

Which is how I found myself playing Elsa to Emmas Anna, complete with a Frozen medley.

It’s scary how much of the lines she knows; granted they’re a tad bastardised. 

Here’s a few gems.

“Come on Elsa, wake up. The sky’s awake so I’m awake!” Whilst flopping on me dramatically.

“Do you wanna build a snowman?” After knocking on the bathroom door a few times. 

Lying on the floor, legs in the air, clucking her tongue. 

“Mummy! You be Elsa, I be Anna!”

Oh to be almost 3 again. 

I’m reminded of when I was 8 or 9, and my cousins and I used to go swimming at the beach, or to the pool, and we would pretend to be mermaids. I specifically remember laying in the surf, on my back singing Part of Your World from the Little Mermaid, pretending to be Ariel.  

 

Being a child is magical. 

Happiest Place on Earth

We are here and it is AWESOME.

I want to buy EVERYTHING. 

There’s so much to see and do, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow (not just because it’s my birthday either!)

We had a great start to the day, thanks to epic staff at Eurostar St Pancras International. The queues were pretty busy, we started to join a line, when one of the staff approached us and fast tracked us through. 

We’d booked 3 seats in a 4 seat section. The 4th seat stayed empty the whole trip!

Free wifi. Epic.

The hotel is beautiful and very peaceful. The food (so far) is delicious, even if The Husband did get the chicken nuggets and fish bites mixed up.

The fireworks and laser light show at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle was fabulous.

Can’t wait for tomorrow!  

Countdown to the Magic

This time, in 7 days, we will be setting eyes on Disneyland Paris. 

Emma will be 2 in just under 2 weeks and I’ll be turning 31 in just over a week. That means poor Daniel is poor. (Guy has 5 birthdays AND Mothers Day to fork out for this month as well as our annual holiday)

This years family holiday is 5 days at Disneyland Paris Resort.

I first went to Disney aged 2, and now Emmas first trip is the same. I’m hoping to recreate some of the photos. God knows where they are however. I shall have to ask my mother!

Currently, poor Little Duck has a D&V bug 🙁

I’m hoping she gets over it before we go.

Baby’s First Ears

When I was 2, my parents took me to Disney World. It was epic, so I’m told. To be honest, I don’t have many memories of it. I have photos though, of me with Cinderella, me with Cinderella’s mice, me with Chip and Dale, and Tigger, and Goofy, and well, you get the picture.

I was a Disney kid through and through. I watched all the films, countless times. I was a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, I did Mousercise!! To this day I still LOVE Disney.

From that trip, my parents got me a pair of Mouse ears. Those ears are now 26 years old. They’ve moved house with me, they’ve even moved countries with me. They are possibly the oldest thing I own, apart from myself.
This was me, aged 27, the mouse ears having reached their 25th birthday, and they STILL FIT.

My parents, are currently residing in the Cayman Islands. They took some friends there on vacation, and at the end of the month long vacation, they went to Disney World.

My mother called me this evening to tell me about her trip and that she’d bought the baby a present.
Flump is now the proud owner of a pair of Mickey Mouse ears, just like his/her mama. Who knew you could get Mouse ears for babies!!

When the parents get back in May, Flump will have Mouse ears just like Mama and we will be Disney kids together, much to Daddy’s dismay. Although he can’t complain, cause Marvel and Star Wars are owned by Disney now, so it’s not all lame.

I can’t wait to get a photo with us both wearing matching Mickey Mouse ears, Awkward Family Photo, here we come!!
