Happy Birthday Disneyland!

Today is the anniversary of the opening day of Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, which opened in 1955. At the time Nathan was born, Michael worked for the Mouse and I had left my Disney job about nine months before (I was looking for a new career and found one... as a mom!). Ten days after Nathan was born, the Disneyland Resort celebrated Christmas for the Cast Members and despite having gone through forty hours of labor followed by a c-section, nothing was going to stop me from attending this fun event where food and merchandise is a fraction of what the public pays. So off we went with our newborn bundled in my arms, me bundled into a wheelchair, to the Magic Kingdom where our sleeping prince met Mickey, Minnie and a host of other Disney characters.

We moved away not long after this, and felt like such slacker parents when our second-born child had to wait until he was already four months old before enjoying his first tour of it's a small world...
