Despite my previous attempts to book the ultimate Disney European cruise, I have decided to keep the extra money and scale back the experience, scale it way back. Let’s be real, as a PR mommy, you kinda have to know when to hold and when to fold ’em. I knew I should put my cards on the table and admit that despite wanting to see the world for the price of a Honda, this dream trip will have to wait until the kids are older, and we can opt to go solo with my favorite companion, the hubster.
Despite the scaling back, I’m happy to say that I am still going to able to keep my promise to my little girl for a proper Disney princess visit by staying at a Disney resort instead and keeping the grandparents happy by making it a “family trip” and visiting them.
The PR mommy lesson is that even though I’m ready to see the world, I need to keep my dreams a little more close to home since my little ones are still so little, and try to see the world from their eyes. Plus, I need to think of my family (the grandparents) and know that these may be the last few precious summers to see their grand babies.
The pastor of my church says “the days of parenting are long but the years are short” and it’s time that I follow this idea and stop putting pressure on myself to see the world now. There will be plenty of time to do that when they are older.
