My Affair With Mickey

       Yes, It's true. I have carried a long time emotional affair with ....a mouse. Mickey Mouse that is. I am a Disney Freak. Wait let me do this right........


My Awesome Mickey Watch
Hi,...my name is Joanne and I am a Disneyholic.  There it's out. That is the first step, but there is no way I'm going to say that it's a problem! Now don't get me wrong. I do not go around wearing Disney sweatshirts or have a house filled with Disney chachkis (sp). I just think of Mickey and a childlike excitement simmers quietly within me. The first time we went to Disney as a family my Daughter was 9 mos old. Everyone thought we were crazy for taking her while she was so young. We made the reservations when she was just two months old and the thought of going to Disney kept me sane all those months of sleep deprivation and Chronic colic. And quite frankly getting away from all the (well meaning) interference from Grandparents was also a great plus. When we walked through the gates my Husband ( it was his first time ever) and I had smiles and we became big kids again. It was a Magical week and we loved our first vacation as a family. As is the norm the souvenir shops were a must stop. We bought our baby lots of cool t-shirts and toys from Disney but for me I wanted just one thing....a watch; something I could look at all the time and it would remind me. I wanted something that would  make me smile during those dreary long "after Christmas" months. From then on every time we went to Disney I got a watch. For the last few years we have not been able to go...so I have not added to my small collection. A few days ago my best friend handed me a small box and inside..........A beautiful Mickey watch! I'm all smiles....sing with me will ya?..........~whose the leader of the club who's made for you and me~ M-I-C-K-E-Y   M-O-U-S-E~~~~I have spent the last ten minutes with that song happily stuck in my head.
