Waiting on the Weekend

This week has felt like the longest week ever. You see, way back when, we made plans to go to Disney World, despite ferocious toddler and pregnant me. Only last week did I realize that woah, we're going THIS WEEKEND. That kind of crept up on me and now my week has been filled with making phone calls to the school, the vet, the resort where we're staying, doing infinite loads of laundry and making lists upon lists of things to pack.

I probably over think the whole packing thing but you really have to be prepared when traveling with kids. The best thing we're bringing with us: the two grandmas. Oh yeah, we need all the help we can get this time and I think it's going to be so awesome having them there.

Besides all the packing and repacking and fretting, Aiden got a haircut. He's been complaining about his hair being in his eyes for weeks and when I offered to cut it he would say that he really only wanted a three inch chunk in the front cut. Yeah....no. So finally he agreed that he really did need a haircut and he sat down and let me get to work. Or he let me get the clippers out and turned on before leaping out of the chair because he'd changed his mind and he didn't really want a haircut after all. Except, whoops, that fantastic leap out of the chair included a brush with the clippers and there was a large chunk already cut. So he ended up going much shorter than usual because I had to even it out and he was so fidgety that he started to sweat and the sweat made the hair curl which required more evening out. Not fun times. But now I figure he can go for quite awhile before I ever have to deal with it again.

 Here's Aiden, giving the people what they want, a smile:


 His true feelings about the haircut:

Rory witnessed the entire ordeal. Here he is, as always, being the Yin to Aiden's Yang. Or Yang to Yin. Whichever.

Of course,  before we can get too carried away about our vacation we still have Halloween on Thursday. Aiden is very exited about his costume and very excited about his big school party and less excited about trick-or-treating but someone needs to get out there and bring me home mini snickers bars. I'd go myself but this big belly is fooling no one. Oh well. Here's to Halloween and the Happiest Place on Earth.
