Well, I should have known better than to think I would easily get this blog started. So much to do and so little time...
I am currently planning and trying to get organized for our next vacation, and realized this blog is a year old and I have done nothing yet. So, before I plan more it is to reflect and look back at the beginning.
When Princess was 5 months old my hubby and I got a chance to go on the Disney Magic for a 7 night cruise during Halloween of 2008. We figured it sounded like fun and decided to go. We had never cruised during Halloween. We had never cruised with another couple. We had never cruised with an infant. How hard could any of those things be?
We were both very familiar with the Disney Magic. In fact we had just cruised on her in January for our babymoon.
So, we got Princess a passport and I started trying to figure out what I would need to pack. A costume of course! Clothes for every day. Dresses for dinner every night! Just the thought of how much fun I would have dressing her for the cruise got me excited.
I partnered with her pediatrician to make sure we would be okay taking her on the cruise, and she saw nothing wrong with it. Whew.
She was to young for sunscreen according to all the sunscreen rules and information I had, which said 6 months and older. I didn't plan on having her in the sun, but I wanted to make sure we were ok. The doctor said I could use is sparingly if I felt it was needed.
