There is a video of this and as soon as I have a steady internet connection I’ll get it uploaded to You Tube.
So this morning Jacob got up first. He is such an early bird. I heard him in the bathroom at a quarter to 4. I let him go lay on the couch for a few minutes. He saw the big box and said “Wooooah, that is a big box. Why did you make it so big?”
About 4:30 I woke up Emily and she was excited to see the box. I let them both open it together and she said “Ohhh it’s a Mickey balloon!” and Jacob said “It’s for my birthday party!” I pointed out to Emily that there was a note on it…
She read it. “You are going to Disney World tomorrow.” I corrected her. She said “You are going to Disney World today. For real? ” And we were like Yes! And she started giggling and jumping up and down and telling Jacob. And Jacob said “I don’t want to ride that Splash Mountain ride.” He is so mad at that ride for getting him wet. (Which is fine because it’s closed.)
Of course I didn’t think about the fact that Jacob was NOT going to want to leave the balloon at home. He threw a fit and I told him that his Nanny was going to come get it and that made him happy. It’s hard to pull him away from grandma for a week. They are like 2 pees in the pod.
It was such a wonderful surprise. I was so excited that I slept for like 2.5 hours last night. I am not kidding. I even listened to the last 5 chapters of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on You Tube to try to fall asleep and it didn’t work. At least I got some Tylenol PM to take tonight.
