It’s not my fault… My parents did it…

Day 12: A Place that you love

As I looked around my kitchen last night I realised something… something that most of you probably already knew… I am actually obsessed with all things Disney… seriously obsessed… if it was a drug I would need rehab.

Now I know this isn’t a shock to most of you, but believe it or not it is a little shocking to me.  You see I have always loved Disney, in fact I have always considered myself a pretty hardcore fan of Disney… but I would never put my self in the obsessed category, but I think that’s where I belong.  My love for Disney isn’t something that I have ever tried to hide, but something that I thought might have lessened as I got older… but no, I am now 24, I have my own family, my own stuff, and my own house to put it all in (well kinda), and there is Disney everywhere… some of it wasn’t even done on purpose, like the fact that my favourite teapot, mugs and bowls are red and white polka dots, which while it seemed harmless at the time, is a perfect match for my Minnie mouse apron…

Anyway, since I have been thinking about this I have come to realise that maybe it’s not completely my fault.  Perhaps I didn’t actually bring this on myself, perhaps I can blame someone else…

This is me as an infant….

and here is me becoming a teenager… turning 13…

Here is me in 2007… while I was at uni… establishing the adult me…

and here is me on my honeymoon… starting the next chapter of my life with Dave and our new little family of us…

Seeing anything familar?  Yep… all of these significant events coincided with a trip to my favourite destination in the whole wide world… Disneyworld… I didn’t have a chance… I was always going to be obsessed and unfortunatly I don’t think it will ever change (mostly because I don’t really want it too).  So I guess what I am getting at besides the fact that I love disney… is that its not my fault… my parents did this too me… need more proof?  well here it is…

I had no chance, it was always going to happen, but if I am really honest, I wouldn’t have it anyother way, because who wouldn’t want share all these significant events with poeple you love in the happiest place on earth?

  1. It’s okay Em, I’ll take the blame. Not sure if your Dad really wanted to go to these places, it’s just that I wanted to go, so he gave in and took me and as a result you and your brothers were taken along too. I don’t regret any of it. I guess the very first time you didn’t know much about it because you were only a little baby, but when we went in 2000, where you turned 13 while we were there, I will never forget the look on your face when we went to Disneyworld. You didn’t know what to look at first, you were absolutely mesmerised by everything you saw and just couldn’t get enough of it. I loved it too, but most of all I loved the effect it had on you and to this day I still love the fact that it’s a very big part of your life. I love you Em!!!

  2. Thanks for taking the blame for that Shirl, if you could now supply us with the $6000 every 10 years for the rest of our lives it costs to fund Em’s addiction. Thanks.

  3. Hi Em loved your Disney story. I think deep down its a place everyone would loved to spend some time at. I know that I have fond memories of Disneyland and the trip I took with my parents there in 1975. A place I would not hesitate to spend time at again. My Big Al bear is my pride and joy. I did spend time there again in 1987 I think when John and I went over with mum and Barb. Its a great obsession to have. Love you guys
