Sad..sad..day.

Something that has been a long time coming was finalized today.

We canceled our trip in June...for a few reasons..they all make sense but they make me sad.

We canceled it mostly because when we planned the trip Holden was a bouncing bubbly 8 month old who loved his stroller and was an absolute joy in public. Fast forward 8 months later and now we have a 16 month old who can barley sit still long enough to bathe..hates his stroller and would rather run around in circles that walk or be pushed anywhere. This is the main reason..other reasons include that we planned the trip for the day after school let out..and thanks to the THREE Snow Days we had we would have had to push back the date. That would be an easy fix but we decided to wait until he's a little older and a little less..oh I don't know..crazy in public. I'm sad but I don't think we would really enjoy ourselves either.

The plus..now I have all the money we saved for a trip to spend..haha!

Sorry you had to cancel your trip.. Like you said though, it will be better when you are able to go and fully enjoy yourselves.

Maybe with the money you save and then amount extra you can save before the next trip you will be able to afford to go for longer?!

It's never nice having to cancel a trip, guess the Main Street haircut is off too. Holden will probably enjoy it much more and remember more of the trip in a year or so's time anyway.

That's okay Bella, that just means you can go for twice as long next time, right?

Exactly! Dave and I both decided we do need to go before we have to pay for him! That's for sure!

The kid really is an angel at home..he sleeps 12 hours and is smiley and happy..but take him out in public..he's a terror. Maybe that phase will end by June and then I'd be bummed..but oh well.

Parenting = hard choices.

Are you sure you can't leave Holden with Grandma and you and Dave go? laugh

I am very sorry for you guys!
However, it is nice that you had to make a difficult decision and were rational about it. I'm sure your next trip will much more fun! And now you already have part of the fundings!

Disney with a toddler is ALOT of work!

You are a wise young lady to wait a year or two.

We did it with the kids and trust me when I say it was NO fun. No fun for the kids either cause they're afraid of the characters and you want to get all those cute pictures with the characters but they just scream in fear when one gets near.

You can always take him to see Disney on ice with the money from this year and save some for a longer trip next year. mickey

This is wise counsel. It is hard with a little one. I always feel so sorry for the families who are trying to squeeze every possible ounce of enjoyment out of their time (it's big $$ they've spent, after all) and the kids are miserable.

I know it's tough, Bella - but think how cool it will be to come when more of the Fantasyland stuff is opened. Because SURELY it will be opened by then (at least some of it.)
