Our morning at the happiest place on earth did not start off very happy! Quite the opposite...it started off miserable. At 3:30 am Nina woke up with a headache. At 4 am she proceeded to vomit twice. We gave her a bath and Todd ran to the store to buy children's aspirin. Thank God after her bath and Tylenol, she was able to fall back asleep at 5am! So much for starting off on a happy foot! I lay there, consumed with worry! What did this all mean??? Were the symptoms coming back super quickly? I commanded my mind to stop and just concentrate on the happy things were going to do that day! I didn't dare say a word to Todd! I knew what was racing through his mind. It was racing through mine and I didn't need to add fuel to the storm brewing in him!
Although the early morning was rough, the rest of the day was lovely. We slept in until 10am and ordered room service. The kids were totally stoked with the Mickey Mouse shaped waffles and gobbled down each last bite. We got dressed and went downstairs where we met our lovely Ambassador Katie. Katie was a doll and the most helpful guide. We are constantly amazed by the generosity of people around us! Kathy Ireland had heard about our sadness through our Pastor Jim and out of the absolute goodness of her heart, given us this great gift! What a blessing!
Once we entered the park, Nina and Teddy proclaimed that Pirates of the Caribbean was the first ride on the agenda! Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!!! Off we went to Pirates of the Caribbean. Nina has always loved this ride! I will never forget the first time she went on it. She was two years old and she sat between Sosie and Adelae in the front row. She was not scared...not one bit. Teddy clung onto Todd and me, but Nina just sat with her cousin and even put her tiny arms up into the air when the girls commanded her to do so at the little drop in the beginning. I was terrified when I saw her doing this so I reached up from the second row and held her by the shoulders. When we passed the drop, she turned back to me and glared....gave me the stink eye! How dare I question her capacity to manage a little ride!! Even at two Nina was the bravest girl ever! Not much has changed with our honey-girl....but then again everything has :(
