My kids are lunatics….

By Tara Zandra | January 20, 2013

but man do I love and adore them.

There isn’t really a story to go with that, nothing that will translate well in the typewritten word, just a thought I had earlier this evening while they were, well, being lunatics. The sisterly love is so strong, makes my heart melt on a consistent basis.

So I got to do something today that left me grinning for a very long time. It seems so silly when I recount it but I don’t care. The always lovely hatter that I always fawn over? This guy? Totally got to meet him today [insert big ass smiley here]. He doesn’t just sing at Mad T Party and today he was with Voices of Liberty before the Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln show. We were already planning to be at Disneyland today, so we were glad we’d get to see him sing while we were there. The kids were acting like they really could not have cared less and one got the idea to go on Splash Mountain so off they went; which was probably for the best as they did not need to see Mommy and Daddy a tad tounge-tied and fawning. Anyway, we watched the performance and it was simply amazing. One of the sopranos gave me chills with her notes.

Anyway, I don’t feel the need to go into a ton of detail, I’ll just say that after they were done singing he walked over to us and we finally got to chat in person and he was so sweet and we were tripping on words and it was wonderful. Our love for him has not been lessened, that’s for sure.

We decided we wanted to watch once more before heading out so we waited for the girls and took them back to watch the next set. Again, I’m not sure either child was super thrilled, but they both seemed to enjoy it in the moment. Afterwards, we said hello and good-bye one more time and he introduced himself to the girls and then we were out for the day.

The thing is, I’ve been stalking chatting with him on facebook since like August or something. During that time he has been nothing but nice to me, but for all I know I’m just a bother and he’s polite. Plus, it’s not like we know him at all. Basically all we know is he is an astounding singer and his stage presence when he’s the hatter is so enjoyable that we always want more. So actually talking to him in person certainly had the potential to be a letdown but we were put at ease right away. I guess it helps that my profile picture is usually a pic of Chris and I together so we didn’t even need to introduce ourselves as he recognized us.

Anyway this was the first sucessful trip to Disneyland itself (not counting California Adventure) since early November. Sucessful meaning nothing went wrong and we had a fantastic day. The weather was gorgeous, it wasn’t too crowded while we were there, neither child was tired or cranky, neither adult was tired or cranky, and we got to hear wonderful singing capped off with a lovely chat.

I’m too lazy to grab my thesaurus, but there are plenty more fabulous adjectives and all of them would describe today.

Oh, and when I went on Buzz Lightyear at noon, my score at that time was 72nd best for the day. I’ll take it.
