Every day Disney life

Before I started this blog, I never realized how much apart of our daily life that Disney has become. At work (I'm a musician), we're currently playing a Disney Medley which reminds me of Mickey's Philharmagic. Donald's band is playing this time instead of an orchestra, but we're playing music from Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Little Mermaid, and Aladdin. Everyone around me knows that I love the movies and I've been enjoying singing along. Hopefully the audience likes it just as much (or more!). Wouldn't you? If only we had smell-o-vision...

Tonight at dinner, Adam picked up his water glass and noticed the condensation - it formed a Mickey! I can't imagine many people noticing that - I was very proud of my husband.

More importantly is how Disney has helped effected our afternoon routine with Noah. On days in which Noah didn't get a good afternoon nap, keeping him up to 5:30 is rough. Days like today, for example. Noah had a fantastic morning nap at daycare, but they didn't think to put him back down. By the time I picked him up, he was exhausted and almost fell asleep in the car but refused to sleep in his crib when we got home. Being completely exhausted and cranky, the only thing that helped him stay peaceful? The intro's to Little Einsteins and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He shows little to no interest in the actual shows, but those intros. Wow. Even in the car - when he's fussing, we'll play 3 songs - MMC theme song, Mouse-ka Tools, and the Hot Dog Song. Especially the hot dog song. It's magical! Thank goodness for that soundtrack.

Tomorrow, we're starting Tot Travel Tip Tuesdays! Hopefully we can come up with some great tips for traveling! Then Wednesday, I'll start Baby Wearing Wednesday. I'm excited to start these and hope they help!
