Our house. Wednesday afternoon. Gabby and I are on the couch watching television. UNC TV’s Martha Speaks. The following conversation strolled in out of nowhere.
ME: Yes, sweetie.
GABBY: (Looking at TV) Can we go to Disney World one day?
ME: (Actually feels wallet seizing) What sweetie?
GABBY: Can we Go … To … Disney World one day?
ME: Sure sweetie. One day we can, but not for awhile.
GABBY: (With a tad more excitement) Can we go when I turn five!?
ME: We’ll see, sweetie. We’ll see.
The wife recently suggested we try Carowinds this summer, to see how that goes. And no, she’s not referring so much to how the kids do as she is how will I do. I’m just not hip to theme parks. Unless, of course, this counts as a theme “park”.
