I took all of the children, Whitney too, inside the World of Disney store. Can you imagine what that was like for the boys. Display after display of nothing but Disney! Some parents may have been frustrated by the experience, but I LOVED it. I told all of them they could each buy something, but it couldn't be more than $10. While the boys didn't quite get that idea, I told them what they bought had to be "xiao" (little.)
I let them pick up and touch anything they wanted to...well anything that wouldn't break. I let them carry something around the store until they found something they liked better. I took them from one display to another and back again. No one had more fun than Mama just watching the boys with wide eyed wonder, knowing they could have a gift. They never complained if I said, "No." They didn't ask for something bigger. They just enjoyed the moment of being in that store! They simply loved the idea that they would get to choose something.
I love to watch my children enjoy it.
I love to hear the music.
I love to see the sights.
I love the atmosphere.
And, when we left, I had my own treasure:
Don't you think this antennae topper is the perfect treasure for a Disney loving Navy mom?
