Appointment, Visit, Disney

(S) had an appointment with the therapist yesterday. We are still trying to concentrate on the sleeping issue and getting her to stay an entire night in her own room. I guess we are going to start moving her a foot at a time from where she is sleeping closer to her room. I don't know if we are betting she doesn't notice, or thinking she will notice and it just won't bother her anymore. As long as it works, I really don't care. We are now going to see the therapist every other week instead of every week.

(S)s case worker came by yesterday for her monthly visit. I am still out of state so I didn't get to talk with her, but DW did. When asked about the case and if anyone knew what was happening, the answer, of course, was that they don't know anything. She said she had talked with the DA and he had no idea where it was. The CW also added that she had one case that had taken a year. We don't know if that was start of TPR proceedings to end of appeal, or just the appeal process. If it was just the appeal process, it is time to scream with frustration. If it was from start to finsih, then it shouldn't be long before we scream with excitement. The start of the TPR process was just about this time last year. We will keep our fingers crossed.

We also have all the permissions in place to take (S) to Disney World. We have been talking it up with her and making sure she knows that there are many characters there. She says she is fine with that. I guess Chuck E Cheese is more of a rat while Mickey of course is a mouse. I don't know, but she likes Mickey. In any event, we have made our plane reservations and also have made reservations for:

Bibiddi Bobiddi Boutiue where she will get all dolled up like a Princess. (Hair, Nails, Makeup)

After the boutique, we are having dinner with Cinderella in the castle.

We are also going to have lunch one day with Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore.

The above are all at the Magic Kingdom.

We have reservations for Breakfast with Donald Duck in Animal Kingdom

We are still deciding what, if any, character meal we will do in Epcot.

We are only 6 weeks away from leaving for Florida, so we are getting REAL excited!!! Can't wait. If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, things not to miss etc, please let us know.


  1. Your Disney adventure sounds FANTASTIC.. if you need a nanny, I would be happy to oblige!!!

    Being in the dark regarding your case is so BEYOND frustrating .. My hair is much greyer than it was 3 years ago..

  2. My nieces loved the Princess breakfast at Norway in Epcot's World Showcase. Your trip sounds like a blast!

    I hope you're happily celebrating the end of the appeal process very soon.

  3. We just got back yesterday with our 4 yr old son.
    Go to DownTown Disney. Eat at Earl of Sandwich.
    Best value at Disney and there are lots of fun things to do & see there.
