July 12, 2014 in All Posts, Preschool, Travel

Disneyland is truly the happiest place on Earth. I hadn’t visited the park since 1987, so I was excited to take the kids (4 and 5 years old) on their maiden voyage, but I had no idea how absolutely magical the experience would be.

I never thought I would say this, but I left my kids and loved every minute of it!  Now, you know that I miss my kids even when I run to the grocery store without them, so this was a big surprise for me.  But to be perfectly honest, a full ten days without them […]
