Meeting Mickey Mouse : Part 3 of Disney World.

Isaac barely knew who Mickey Mouse was before we planned our trip to Florida. But this Mama read him some of her old Mickey books … and talked the mouse up quite a bit before flying into the Magic Kingdom … so that Isaac was properly prepped to meet the world’s most famous icon. But I could have never guessed at just how smitten he would become with Mr. Mouse …

He was so smitten, in fact, that when we were about to leave … after sharing some quality time with both Mickey and Minnie … he lay down on the floor and balled his eyes out. Mickey then came over to give him some extra hugs to make him feel better. Sadly, this was a theme throughout our visits to various characters. He never wanted to leave them … just as he never wants anyone who visits us to leave. It must be some deeply rooted adoption abandonment issue. Poor little man. But he gets over it quick enough … and now has nothing but wonderful things to say about meeting Mickey.

He has been asking me every day since our trip – “Mama, when we are going to go back to stay at Mickey’s house again? Tomorrow?”. And I just keep saying … “Soon, Babe, soon.” … then I ask Daddy for a date that I can begin planning our next trip … and he keeps saying, “Give me at least one week to be home … and then I might think about planning another trip.” Daddy’s can be so ridiculously practical!

Enjoy your day…

Love,
Jodi
