Disney On Drugs

7 children. 4 parents. 4 grandparents.

4 with colds.

1 trip to Disneyland.

2 flights. 1 entire bottle of Dimatapp decongestant for children, distributed and consumed according to doctor’s directions. 2 boxes of gum for 3 older kids. 1 bag of gummy candy for toddlers.

1 crying child descending into California = 86% success rate.

3 days in the parks.  1 double stroller for 2 toddlers.  26 tired legs.  4 toddler legs running circles around us all.

1 bottle adult tylenol, and 1 blister pack of Sudafed, taken over 4 days with various forms (but always large quantities of) caffeine.

2 girls prone to carsickness.  2 child-safe motion-sickness prevention pills, broken in half.  5 minutes from home. 1 seat to clean.

1 Fun Family Vacation, and…

13-mickey-and-boys1

…the first meeting of the Mouse.

Priceless.

ABOUT BETH WOOLSEY I'm a writer. And a mess. And mouthy, brave, and strong. I believe we all belong to each other. I believe in the long way 'round. And I believe, always, in grace in the grime and wonder in the wild of a life lived off course from what was, once, a perfectly good plan.
