Things were looking up and with risk of ruining the suspense of this post, we had a fabulous time at the Magic Kingdom. So good, in fact, that we are going back at least two more times before we leave! We didn't make it on many rides and we didn't see many shows but our girls were happy and if you are a parent you know that that is what constitutes success these days.
We signed up both girls to do Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique. We had no expectations of Kate but we felt we owed her a chance. As we waited (<------there is that word again) our turn, we could see Kate getting agitated and asking for the pirate duds of a little guy who was waiting for his sister. The conversation went like this:
Me: Kate, you can be any princess you want. How about Belle or Aurora?
Kate: Princesses are sweeping (sleeping). I piwate!
Me: We can't do the pirate makeover here, Kate. How about you pick a princess?
Kate: I piwate! Gwacie Pwincess!
Me: Pirates are all gone, Kate. Princess or no costume, ok babe?
Kate: Fine. I Pwincess Sophia!
Me: Perfect! (Phew)
Grace chose Belle and was in her glory for the entire hour and Kate shocked the hell out of us when she let the 'Fairy Godmother brush and style her hair! No joke, none of us are allowed to touch her hair. Her therapists work on hair brushing programs with her. When they see the video below their jaws will hit the floor.
