Something tells me working the breakfast shift, just down the road from the actual magical kingdom, wasn’t part of “Jasmine’s” fairy tale.
A couple of years ago, I wrote a post for Momlogic about the Top Ten Reasons Why I Hate the Park. Although there was a little truth to it (yes, I hate birds. Always will), I mostly meant it as a joke (kind of). Now that Jonah is older, I definitely do enjoy trips to the park more because he’s able to explore and play in a different way than when he was a toddler.
