We spent the toddler’s 3rd birthday in the most magical place on earth – Disney World. The kids love it, we love and it is only 3 hours away so why the hell not, right? Well, as we were herding through the crowds of Magic Kingdom, I couldn’t help but people watch and observe all things grand. And by grand I mean crazy. I was shocked, awed, disturbed, surprised and entertained all at the same time. When we were driving home, I couldn’t help but think about everything I saw while in the most magical place on earth.
- That the bare mid-drift fashion phase is starting younger than I would like it to. Way too many kids and tweens wearing short ass shorts and cropped tops. My dad would have slapped me if I wore anything remotely similar to that at that young of age. I literally saw way too much belly button and way too many ass cheeks than I would have ever liked to in one day! And I’m pretty sure you could have been arrested for even looking in that direction because these kids were too damn young!
- That Teva’s are apparently back in style. I remember begging my parents to get me a pair of Teva’s, you know these bad boys:
They never bought me the real kind, only the cheap knock off brand. But I loved them and was very happy that they stayed in 1995…or so I thought. I saw multiple adults and children rockin’ the Teva’s again. Some were even sporting a nice pair of white socks with them. Guess they are trying to resurrect that style and for that I say DON’T.DO.IT!
- That matching family Mickey Mouse t-shirts should be left to children only. I felt those poor dad’s pain as they sported the “Dad” embroidered mickey ears. Theoretically, it’s a cute idea but lets just keep the matching attire to the kids. Please and thank you.
- That paying the extra money to stay at a Disney resort is worth every.single.penny. We made the mistake of staying at a non-Disney resort (by Downtown Disney) and to get to and from the park was over an hour ordeal. We’d take a bus to a ticketing center and from there either take another bus or hop on the monorail to get to the desired park. It might not seem that annoying but when there are 4,000 other people trying to do the same thing plus 2 kids under 3, a stroller, diaper bag, and cooler – it was a pain in the ass! We would have paid anything to make our lives easier.
Clearly I had some down time while the 8 month old napped and my husband and 3 year old went on rides.
