Getting to Orlando

Our outgoing flight to Disney World was delayed so we had to deal with Dova running around the airport for 3 hours. At one point when we were about to board the plane, I took my eye off of her for about 15 seconds and when I turned back she was gone. I started calling out "Dova" and whole bunch of people started pointing to the row chairs behind them. Thankfully everyone else was keeping an eye on her. As if you could miss her antics. After more delays with the Disney Magical Express bus breaking down, and not being able to remember our room number at the resort, we finally arrived hungry at 10pm. Grandma immediately recognized that Dova was acting just like I had when I was 3, traveling with her alone in an airport. She said she didn't know what to do with me, I was singing and running around the whole place. Of course the saying "a parent's greatest revenge is grandchildren" completely applies here. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Ok...not as good as yours, but the site at least got me past my mental vacuum state.

Sorry for the totally off-kilter comment post....most of my comments are just things that "pop" into my head as I read the main post. But I suppose there are times when I should probably evaluate my replies a bit more...sort of "engage brain prior to engaging mouth".
