Ok. so on with the story!
My mom came to stay a few days with us.
Barrett has been thrilled to have her here, though he's also kind of agressive with her. When she's not around, he's asking where she is. When she's trying to talk to him, he's running away. I hope that's typical 2yr old behavior, tho it's pretty typical Barrett behavior.
We went to DisneyWorld yesterday.
It was a bit of a drive to get there. about an hour and a half. On the way, we watched a skywriter putting a lot of God and Jesus talk in the sky. Here was my favorite part:
We stood in line for 30 minutes to meet some Princesses. Jasmine was first. After some cute small talk and a couple hugs, she said, "can I tell you a secret? let me whisper it in your ear" and gave him a HUGE kiss (complete with lipstick print) on the cheek.
We ate a surprisingly delicious dinner at the Crystal Palace where Bear participated in a restaurant-wide parade with about 30 toddlers and Eeyore, Pooh, Piglet and Tigger. Nearly brought tears to my eyes watching him dance at the end of the line bouncing to "Hip Hip Hooray for the Piglet and the Pooh!" (the adventures of Winnie the Pooh was the 1st movie he ever watched...)
At the very end of a really good day, we watched the fireworks over the Disney Castle (yes, just like in the movies) which was the first time Barrett had ever seen fireworks. His jaw dropped open, and he said, "I can't believe it! (a la "Little Einsteins") Fireworks! In my Whole Life!" I'm not sure whether he was trying to convey that these were the best fireworks he'd ever seen in his whole life, or express he'd never seen anything like that in his whole life. Either way, both he and I were very pleased. Here's a pic of a worn out Little Bear Cub while waiting to get back to the parking lot:
