Disney World!

As you may or may not know, we just returned from a week in Disney World.  Thanks to the generosity of the Gaetanos and an incredible feat of will power and mental energy by Matt to finish a complete dissertation draft, we were able to celebrate our anniversary, sans kids, in a magical way.  It was unbelievable.  Quite miraculous to find out that we do still like each other.  And we both enjoyed a bit of rest and relaxation before the storm of moving comes.   I present the proof:

She said it best

Matt was waxing philosophical on us again, starting on a parley about the interesting case of x or y.  I can't really remember the particulars.  My discussion honing device was sensing length, prolonged length, for which my tired self just wasn't quite in the mood for.  But, lest I be rude, I just nodded and followed along, wishing I had a witty way out.

Suddenly the princess spoke.  And when Cate speaks, with her charming little voice and captivating expressions, everyone stops to listen.  She looks Matt straight in the eye, and, sounding just a little exasperated says, "Eat, Daddy!"  And just like that we were out, replacing the mini-dissertation with hearty laughter.

Right or Wrong?

So, when Matt's gone and it's just the kids and me, I turn to breakfast foods for dinner, which according to Matt is not a legitimate dinner option.  But, when it's just us, a quick and easy meal that even picky Cate devours is just the thing.

Today while Dominic was eating his Mickey Mouse  pancake, he pronounced, with all his four-year-old taste and authority, "These pancakes are delectable and yummy!"

Does this mean we're doing something right?  Or something seriously wrong?
