We started packing today and Spencer went crazy. He took a bath, put on his Avengers underoos, and slipped on his flip flops. Then proceeded to chant for hours that he was ready to go bye-bye. Why he thought he was doing this in underoos is beyond me. We don't normally take him out in his underwear. That would have been a first. So I did what any self respecting mother would do and ordered him pizza. (Hey, I thought it would humor him. ...It did not.) So he followed me around as I packed and kept saying "I go bye bye?" And every time I would tell him that he need to go to bed first and THEN he would go bye bye, he would stomp his little feet and cry a little. Then within minutes he would start his chant again. We finally got him to bed around 9:30.
Now it's almost 11pm and we are about to head to bed ourselves. I'm too excited to type much more and I doubt I will sleep much. Spencer has shown enthusiasm for this trip beyond anything I ever expected. His comprehension of what is going on is so much larger than anything he was comprehending a year ago. He's known for weeks that this is HIS trip and that we are going to Disneyworld. He knows his Make A Wish Shirt means something special to him. He knows he needs flip flops and underoos. (This is where I would have put a picture of that if I had taken one. I did not. My organization was not stellar today.)
Goodnight....we are about to go on the big bye-bye. Thank you Make A Wish, Give Kids the World, Disneyworld, Seaworld, Universal Studios, and whoever else generously graces our lives this week. We love you all.
P.S. We found the charger for the video camera!
