Commence Operation Head Explosion: Top Secret
This August I plan on pulling ahead in delegates for the position of Mom of the Year.
My Mom called me the other day to ask me if we'd like to use my Aunt's extra week at her timeshare condo in Orlando.
I hemmed and hawed about it (per usual).
The money, Jim getting someone to cover the store, boarding the dogs...
Then I realized that we'd be stupid not to do it.
We're getting the timeshare for $150 for the whole week. From what my Mom told me, it's a really nice "resort" type place.
But that's not the best part.
All we're going to tell the girls is that we are "going on vacation with Grandma", just as we have done in years past. They'll be so distracted by all the pools and playing, they won't expect what's coming next.
For the first part of the week, it'll be just the girls, my Mom and I. And for the first couple of days, it'll be just hanging out swimming.
Then we're going to spring the "We're going to Sea World!" spiel on 'em. I looked at the website, and I'm certain they're not going to want to leave that place.
A few days into the trip, Jim is going to show up and surprise the girls.
And it gets better...
Two (or maybe three) days at Disney World!
We took Mina a couple years ago, and she hasn't stopped talking about it since. Audrey was too little to really get anything out it at the time, but she has slowly realized what she missed out on.
The best part of the whole trip is that the girls will have no idea what's going on until we are en route to it.
I've always been such a cynical bitch about certain things, but there is nothing like showing your kid the Mecca that is Disney World for the first time
It's going to be hard to keep this under wraps until August, but it will be SO worth it when I see their faces.
