Dear Disney, Your water wings are very cute. However you labeled them for “3+ year olds”. These just fit my arms and I’m 32 and I have been working out (and yes I inflated them).  What kind of ‘roided up kids are these for?!Back to the store with you. 
Conversation before we went to the store:
"Daddy, I don’t want water wings!" "We are going to look. They will help you swim by yourself." "But I don’t want them!" "Do you know what they are?" "No, but I don’t want them."
Ah, 4 year old logic. Got to love it.

One of my daughter’s favourite things to do is to play “sleep time”. She has been putting her toys (and various other objects) to sleep for a long time now. So it shouldn’t have surprised me when I walked into our bedroom tonight to find her doll sleeping in our bed. Still I was creeped out to find this little doll head peeking out at me from the dark. Go to your own bed baby Cinderella!

My daughter got this ‘souvenir’ at Disney on Ice today with her mother. It spins around and lights up. I am anticipating someone will loose an eye over it. That someone will likely be me. We will have then paid $24 (!) for me to loose an eye. Sacrifices as a parent I guess?

(While everyone was playing in my daughters room and my wife was brushing various princesses hair)

If you could chose to sleep with a Princess who would you choose?

Jasmin. 

What? She’s the worst. 

Nope. Jasmin. Then Belle, then Arial, then Tiana, Cinderella, Snow White (although she looks like a little kid) and then Aurora. 

(We both agreed Sleeping Beauty is the weirdest looking)

My daughter has a Cinderella/Snow White book that is a short version of the actual stories. Both stories really have really lazy endings as you can see. Why is everyone yelling “hooray”? Also, doesn’t a huge royal wedding take more than one day to prepare? Lazy writers.

Not sure why Snow White was so worried about the queen. She had a whole animal army. I mean she was in the forest the one day and she had animals cleaning a house.

How come Goofy can talk, walk on two legs and wear pants while Pluto is regular dog? Is Pluto really the only normal non-alien in the Mickey-Mouse world?
