We are home from sunny and warm Florida and shivering our butts off in this cold NY weather. Talk about a temperature change! We had the best vacation. Serious memories to last a lifetime! I was so depressed coming home and I think Charlotte was too because she’s tried to physically fight me when I put her in her crib at night and she even has a little cold. I guess I would be depressed if I went from sleeping in a king sized bed back to a crib all alone, but alas, vacation fun can’t last forever.
Our last few days in Disney were spent at the parks and at the pool. Charlotte was so much better than I anticipated. Sure, she didn’t always want to be in her stroller and didn’t always want to hold my hand when she was walking, but could you blame her? Running around with no streets or cars in sight is something she never really gets to do, so she took full advantage of it. Our hotel room was like twice the size of our apartment, so when she woke up in the morning she would take off running all over the place. The last day she even realized she could sit in the broiler drawer of the oven. She wasn’t afraid of a single character she met and all of the rides she was able to go on were met with big smiles. Except for Frozen. None of us were quite the fans of that ride. She won’t remember any of this trip, but we will and that’s really what it’s all about. I loved everything about it. And the main source of my anxiety, the plane rides, were completely calmed when she slept almost the whole way both ways. That’s my girl!
And now I’m back to work and missing her something fierce. It’s hard coming back to the office after spending every minute with her, even in sleep. I even miss sleeping with her warm little body. She is the best thing in the whole entire world. But even though I am sad our vacation is over, we have Thanksgiving and Christmas and parties to look forward to that will all be here before we know it. And of course, the Disney trips in our future. It really is the happiest place on earth.
