Our cruise is now just 6 1/2 weeks away so it was time to share the news with Hannah! Besides, Mommy was just too excited to keep it a secret any longer!!
I’d often wondered how I might share the news with her and in the end decided to use a few different ideas that I’d gained from others.
First there was a phone call from Goofy with the big announcement!
I was pretty sure she’d need more clues so I made up a poster for her to ‘read’.
She quickly figured it out and was squealing with joy! I had made a cake and iced it but that was all. Hannah looked at it earlier in the morning and said, ‘Mommy, that’s a really plain cake.’ Little did she know the topper that was waiting to be added.
I booked this cruise for us almost a year ago so it’s been a long, long time to keep the secret. I’m so thankful it worked out as her reaction was priceless! Nana is retiring at the end of this month so we’re excited that she is joining us too! Mom and Dad will be on their cruise to Hawaii while we’re in the Caribbean.
I cannot express how excited I am for this trip! It’s been a dream for a long time and I’ve been saving for it since before Hannah was born and I’m sure it will build memories that last a lifetime! 5 is the perfect age and I know the 3 of us will have a great time together!!
Only 45 more sleeps!! Wheeee!!!!
