Having a child is like having a second childhood. At least in my case that is the way it was.
Fast forward a few life times and I am a single mother with an almost school age child. That summer, right before her sixth birthday, we went to Florida!
This was my first trip to Florida. I missed all those wild Spring Breaks while pretending to be a college student. I missed running away to Florida when I was a disgruntled teenager.
I had never been to Disneyland. I had only seen it Sunday evenings when it was featured on the Walt Disney Show. I longed when I was a child. Wasn't it every child's dream? Then and now?
Bridget and I were on the monorail into the Park after parking the vehicle. As soon as I saw the Castle I had a feeling of unrestrained joy swell up inside of me! I could not for the life of me wipe the silly grin off my face. Bridget and I both...giddy with anticipation.
In addition to visiting the Magic Kingdom, we wandered into Weeki Wachee land and the Mermaids. This picture is of Bridget, chosen out of the crowd, to have a bird perched on her head.
She was so innocent at this age. Never before and never after has she allowed a bird on her head
