Hakuna Matata

It means no worries, right? So I need to stop worrying about future meltdowns in the parks or planes. I think the anxiety comes from the fact that Piper is now so independent, to the point where she wants to walk EVERYWHERE without holding our hands. She has such a strong personality (wonder where that comes from ) that she wants to do it all herself. I can't let her walk around in the airport or wander off in the parks without some sort of baby-leash, which I am STRONGLY against (it's your baby, not your pet), but I have to give her some independence or we might have a meltdown in the middle of the Haunted Mansion or, heaven-forbid, during the Beauty and the Beast show. I'm sure it's difficult as an actress to keep singing while some child is screaming bloody-murder in the middle of your solo. Poor Disney musicians!

So, I figure all I can do is be prepared as best I can. Piper is really a good-natured baby, but even the best babies can reach their limit. This is why Jenn & I are certain that the lunchtime nap is the way to go for our families on this trip. Not only to keep our sanity, but to also keep the babies on some sort of schedule while taking them out of the SCORCHING HEAT of Florida for the hottest part of the day. I know many people feel like if they don't spend every hour that the park is open running from ride to ride that they don't get their moneys worth; I feel like we both have done Disney so much that we can afford to keep our kids happy by taking naps. Plus, think of how good you feel after a lunchtime nap. So refreshing!

By the way, Jenn, I TOTALLY watched that Disney special yesterday! It really is amazing how alike we are! Anything that says "Disney" pretty much gets DVR'd at our house!

It's getting really close to Piper's first plane ride. I can hear the monorail now: Please stand clear of the doors. Por favor mantenganse alejado de las puertas. Ahh, heaven!
