Meeting Mickey

Today we went to the Magic Kingdom and Finley got to meet Mickey.  (Mickey and I had already met.  More details on that in a bit.)  Luckily, he wasn't scared of Mickey--he gave Mickey and Minnie a kiss and was happy to see them.

The Magic Kingdom is such a sentimental place.  I spent the day with my brothers, dad, husband and son.  I was the only girl.  For a few fleeting moments I wished Finley was a girl so I could put him in a Princess dress--and then I saw some little boys dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow and I decided boys are ok after all.

I also happen to be a sentimental person.  Watching Finley's amazement seeing the castle or Mickey and getting to take him to the happiest place on earth made me choke up several times--I refrained from crying because I was surrounded by so many tough men.  And I wish I could blame it on the pregnancy hormones, but I can't.  You see, the first time I met Mickey... I cried.  I wish I could say it was because I was scared or that I was a toddler.  But I wasn't.  I was in college.

In my defense, my friends really like Disney and Megan cried too.  And it was only like one tear.  Disney is a sentimental place, dang it.  And I'm pretty sure we cried because the kids in line in front of us were really cute and enamored with Mickey.  That's how I choose to remember it.  Please don't judge me.

Peace, love and Mickey.
