It’s a fine line.
A line that often times get’s blurred a line that at times we push. What line am I talking about? Well, that line would be the fine and oh, so thin line between fun and over doing it. At times the line is so thin I don’t even realize we have crossed it until it is too late. Then I am left asking myself “did I miss it??? .. were there signs??” This is where I am conflicted. You see, when Bubba is down or we know it has been a hard week for him, there is usually one solution. That would be Disney, of course! So, I know that Disney would be a wonderful boost to his spirit but I also know that at times it can be brutal on his sweet little body. Now, do you see where my dilemma of a fine line comes in? Yesterday Hubs had that day off from work and he has been so busy that he hasn’t seen the kids much at all lately. You can sure tell that it has gotten Bubba down. He misses his Daddy when he is unable to be around all of the time. So we decided to pull the kids out of school a little early and forgo Regan’s violin lesson for the day to PLAY. Where else is there to go in this family but Disneyland?? I mean come on you knew it was coming. I was excited for many reasons. First off, we NEEDED some family time. Secondly I got a new toy I wanted to play with (Nikon D7000). Disney is the perfect place to test your skills because you are constantly needing to change your ISO, aperture, and F stop with each new ride, element, lighting change. We picked the kids up and we were off…..
We started the afternoon off with a favorite.... BUZZ :)
The wonderful thing aboug having Daddy is
that he will go on rides that Mommy will not.
Like the rockets....
It is seriously a two person job getting Bubba in and out of the rocket.
Then it was off to Small World, another fave.
Ok, so some of you might be grossed out by the drool
and that I don't edit it out BUT I say the longer the drool
the more fun we are having!!! wink! :)
I LOVE her hazel eyes... I think they look different
in almost every picture I take of her.
(depending on outfit and back ground)
Daddy and Bubba went on a rollercoaster!
Then it was time for the Jungle Cruise....
See that happy face... Well, it didn't take
long for that smile to turn into .....
a very tired little boy. :(
We just thought he was tired BUT
that was not the case.
I walked away for a second to buy cotton candy. I walked back to find that Bubba had thrown up all over himself.Yes, seizures, right there in the middle of main street. We pulled off to the side and cleaned him up,
Daddy carried him to the tram. I sat in the back of the van holding his head up, cleaning up the vomit, and making sure he didn't choke. Regan cried as I used her shirt from school to catch the vomit. The line was crossed, we pushed it just a little to far. It is one of the hardest things as Bubba's Mommy that I am faced with, the fine balance of making him happy but not pushing it past the point of no return. We have always been told quality rather than quantity. How do I know how to balance the quality??? It is a hard one. Well, we made it home, I gave him an injection of valium, and he got LOTS of cuddles. Today he stayed home from school with Mommy to recover, we cuddled a TON. My heart breaks each time our fun family outings turn into pain filled nights.
at least we did get some fun moments together before the storm hit.
