Disney Flashback Friday

1st Time My Princess met a Real Princess

When Alyssa first met Donald Duck at Camp Mickey-Minnie Greeting Trails in Animal Kingdom, she ran away in fear. Held onto her daddy like there was no tomorrow when Tigger and Pooh tried to say hello and was completely asleep after waiting in a long line at Epcot Character Spot.
But when Alyssa spotted Snow White from afar she was the most excited I saw her the whole trip. It was the 1st time Princess Alyssa ever met another Princess. After that Alyssa was not afraid to meet the other characters.
Alyssa and Aiden with Snow White, Aiden was in love too....

1st Family Trip

The Guerrero Family 2008

It was our first trip to Walt Disney World as a family in the summer of 2008. My son Aiden, the little guy under Donald's sombrero was two years old at the time. We also just found out that I was having a little girl right before we left to Walt DisneyWorld. I was about 6 months pregnant with Princess Alyssa Jaslene and could not wait to buy her very first pair of pink ears even before she was even born.
This trip is where all the magic happened, it was the beginning of my obsession with Walt Disney World and all because one little boy, Aiden Joshua....

The love Aiden had for everything Disney was so contagious that it was hard not to fall in love too. After reading so many bloggers write about all the wonderful memories they had when they were children being a part of Disney(World or Land) and now the magic is still there. I just want to create wonderful memories and have a special place no matter how many years have passed or how many inches they've grown, go back to as a family and relive our Disney days.

Thanks Magical Days with the Mouse  Disney Flashback Friday ROCKS!! Loving everyones flashbacks!

Potty Training A Princess

I've always heard that potty training girls was way easier than putting training boys. When potty training my son Aiden it only took one week when I put my mind to it for him to get it down. I know every child is different and believe me my two children are as different as they come. Knowing Alyssa's wonderful personality and determination I thought it was going to be a cinch. Alyssa is an extremely intelligent child and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mother,okay maybe but what mother wouldn't. :-)
But when it comes to this potty training, Alyssa and I are struggling. We are taking some steps on personalizing it and make it fun for her. Because Alyssa is a Princess she had to have something that was fit for royalty, Disney Princess Magical Sounds Potty Seat by The First Years. It is the most adorable thing ever, it's very girly and with one press of a button Alyssa is a able to tell me when she is done . The seat is extremely soft which is a plus because my son's potty seat was a hard plastic one.

I also use Pull-ups Training Pants  because of the wonderful Princess designs and we tell her her not to potty on the Princesses. She was very pleased to receive her Big Kids call from Cinderella telling her what a great job she was doing so far and to keep up the good work.
For a limited time you can get a free call from a Disney Princess or a Disney/Pixar Car's character by heading over to it is a wonderful way to encourage your child in this potty training process. 

Alyssa has her good days and bad days, but she's not quite getting it down. She will stay dry if I continue to put her on myself but she does not tell me when she needs to go. I have tried putting on a timer every 15 minutes and sometimes she's dry, sometimes she's not. Another thing she struggling with is "number two". I'm trying an reward system, and on special occasions such as staying dry all day, telling when she has to go, and using "number two" on the potty seat Alyssa will get rewarded with M&M's.Using an old spaghetti jar I washed and some stickers I found at the dollar store that are Disney Princess that have motivational messages. We decorated her reward jar and filled it up with M&M's.I also uses as a teaching tool for her, before she receives M&M she has to tell me what colors.

One other thing that I am really looking forward to is the Potty Training Timer. I think this is a wonderful ideal because it helps her become independent in her potty training process, also she loves watches and it's a Disney Princess so a big plus.

 Hopefully we will be able to get our Princess be to a "Potty Pro" soon so she can wear her big girl underwear. If you have any suggestions, tips or great stories about your potty training journey feel free to leave a comment I'll love to hear from you. Sharing is caring and I need some help! :)

More than love!

When I was a little girl like most girls I wanted to be a princess, marry Prince charming and live happily ever after. I loved everything Mickey, and even as a teenager I had a huge Little Mermaid poster hanging in my room. I enjoyed Disney movies and my very first trip to Disney World was in 2000 at the age of 15 and had a blast. But I didn't know it was more than love until my first trip as a family in 2008, when my son Aiden was only two. It was love at first sight for Aiden. Seeing the love that he had, the joy WDW brought him and how he couldn't get enough of this magical place just touched my heart. At that moment I knew it was more than just love and begin my obsession with Disney. How could this place brings so much happiness to a child and even make adults fell childlike. It really must be magic! For us it was like being at home and from that moment on Disney became a part of our everyday life. Last year in the summer of 2010, we went back as a complete family with our princess Alyssa who was also two years old at her first trip just like Aiden, and she too fell in love instantly. To be able to share that love and connection with my children give me a sense that no matter how old they get will always have our special place. In honor of Aiden, who is the reason why I fell in love in the first WDW, I'm going please ask everyone to answer Aiden's famous "Meal Time" question. "What's your favorite ride in Disney World?" 
Aiden's Peter Pan's Flight and Alyssa's The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Also please share with me when you knew it was more than just love.

About me...

Hello everyone! My name is Rebecca and I am a mother of two. Aiden and Alyssa,who are my Pirate and Princess. I've been reading blogs for a while now and love following many bloggers on twitter. But with the limit of a 140 characters via twitter I'm unable to express my thoughts and feelings about some of the topics discussed about Disney. So I decided to start a blog and share my views, ideals and experiences not only about Disney but about life in general. Raising two kids as a full-time stay-at-home mom, things can get pretty interesting and one way or another Disney plays some kind of part in our daily life. It can be something simple as watching Toy story 3, reading Jungle Book before bed, letting Alyssa where her Minnie dress, Aiden asking us what are favorite ride is in WDW, checking vacation specials and of course reading my fellow Disney lovers' blogs. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and share yours with me.
