Right here! I get the meanest mom award. I was on Disney Channel’s website a few months ago with Emma, and I somehow clicked my way to the Walt Disney World website. I found that you can sign up to get a free DVD in the mail about planning a trip to Disney World.
I got to thinking about how many times I’ve been there growing up. And it would be fun to take Emma and Kate sometime when Kate gets a little older. I haven’t been there since 2000 so I wanted to know what is “new”.
Well, the DVD comes and I ask Emma if she wants to watch it. Of course she does. She wants to see the princesses. So we watch this DVD. Disney sure does know how to pump up a child for Disney World. Emma was completely awed by the castle. And the little girls hugging Cinderella. She asks me with a huge smile on her face, “Will you take me to see Cinderella’s castle? And meet her?” Her face looked so cute. I admit it, it brought tears to my eyes seeing how happy she got just looking at castle.
I told her we would go when Kate gets a little bigger. She looks at Kate, pulls her arms like she is stretching her, and says “Hurry up and grow, Kate!” I couldn’t help but bust out laughing.
Now that is all Emma asks for: to see Cinderella’s castle. I told Scott what I did. And I started to feel really bad. Poor Emma. Why did I show her that DVD? Why did I order it? We really don’t have any immediate plans for Disney World. We have never really talked about it other than “we should take Emma there one day”. Luckily, Scott said he was thinking about taking a vacation next year sometime after Kate turns 1. He said Disney World would be a good place that the girls will like. We’ll have to start saving…hopefully everything financially will work out. That made me feel a little better but for now, I’m still kicking myself for being the meanest mom ever.
