We took The Boy to the Magic Kingdom yesterday to get his hair cut. His birthday is on Saturday, and I really wanted his hair to look good (read: not in his face) on his birthday. After all, there will be lots of pictures taken!
As if he knew something exciting was in store for him, he awoke at 4:45 and didn’t want to go back to sleep. Around 6, he woke up Cute Husband (by crawling over his body and slapping his face), and after a healthy breakfast of bananas and yogurt, we left the house just before 8 o’clock and headed for the Happiest Place on Earth.
Michal, the barber, was cutting someone’s hair when we arrived at the barber shop on Main Street, and there was one other gentleman in front of us. No worries, though: Horace the Horse and Clarabelle were outside the barber shop and The Boy was utterly fascinated.
After his hair cut (and a quick diaper change in the Baby Station – I love that place), we took him to see Mickey and Minnie, then made a beeline for It’s A Small World. He was a trooper while we waited in line (he was watching all the kids around us), but he started falling asleep once we got on the ride! Somewhere between Europe and Asia, he fell fast asleep, and he stayed asleep long enough for Cute Husband and me to enjoy a lovely overpriced theme park lunch.
I think we’ll be going back to Disney World (possibly more than just the Magic Kingdom) next weekend while my father-in-law is here, but there’s no telling. I do know that I need to be a little better prepared this next visit, though. A single banana and a small container of Pirate Booty is not enough to keep a growing boy happy!
