*We have a winner! Congratulations to hardworking mom, Jill, who will be leaving baby at home to take her two princesses and a prince to the show on Friday! Enjoy, mama, and we'll see you there!*
I have always been a teensy weensy bit bitter that, although my older sister and I have never been, my parents took my younger brother and sister to Disney World at least 3 or 4 times when they were little. I know that in the scheme of things, this is not a great hardship, but still, what kid doesn’t want to go to Disney World? It is something that we never let our parents forget, and tease my mom about to this day.
Fast forward a few years, and I am now the mother of two small girls. We have had the opportunity to go to Florida at least once every year since they were born, and will be heading South once again in February. And this year, we’re doing it.
We’re taking the girls to the Big D.
My husband is psychically preparing, taking deep breaths and shedding his hate-on of commercialism for the good of the family, and I am doing the practical prep, making lists and researching and doing laundry and getting passports.
But there’s something else we’re going to do to prepare – we’re taking the girls, compliments of Mom Central, to Disney On Ice: Princess Classics on December 18. My girls will no doubt be thrilled by the spectacle, and although their Disney ‘education’ extends little beyond the faces on Dove’s pull-ups and a few storybooks, they dig the Princesses. I can’t wait to enjoy their enjoyment at the show.
And I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to offer one lucky GTA area family an early Christmas present – 4 tickets to the December 18 performance of Disney On Ice: Princess Classics.
To enter the draw, simply leave a comment, along with the identity of your favourite Disney Princess. I’ll start – my favourite is Jasmine – or, as my daughter calls her (and don’t you dare correct her) – Jazzbert.
The winner will be randomly chosen on Thursday, December 10.
