TBT: Disney Vacation

Inspired by Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.

Prompt #1  Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from a previous April and write a poem or a blog post.

It was three years ago this month when my husband, whom I am separated from, my son and I went to Disney World. Although we are separated Grant and I are amicable enough that we could go on vacation together. Tyler was seven at the time, a perfect age we thought.

The vacation was a bit more than we could afford but Disney World had been a dream I had had for my child pretty much ever since he was born. Besides, we had never taken him on a vacation. I remember him being five years old and asking me, “Mommy, what’s a vacation?”

Since then we haven’t gone on another vacation but we do have enough money every year to join our city’s pool which Tyler loves. We’ve also been able to enroll him in a few weeks of various camps so I think his summers have been pretty good. I just want to create happy memories for my child.

This summer, however, Tyler and I will be taking a road trip. My cousin who lives in Rochester, NY invited us over to her house in June. She lives in a beautiful home in the woods. Her sister is going to come too. They haven’t seen Tyler since he was a year old!

So I’m really looking forward to the trip and to Tyler seeing my father’s side of the family whom he doesn’t remember. I know they are going to eat him up!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.

    I hope you have a good time with your family! Will there be any kids his age?

      Not that I know of, John, but it shouldn’t be too long a visit that he’ll get bored. My cousin has a lot of pets and some deer outside that should entertain him!

    What a sweet memory, love the photo!
    Have fun in Rochester.

    What a fun memory! We have a little here who adores Mickey.

      I think we went at just the right time, Jennifer. I don’t think he would enjoy it as much now that he’s ten, he’d be more a Universal Studios kid now! Although he still sleeps with Eeyore!

  4. The road trip sounds like it will be a good time, hope you enjoy it!

  6. Lori says:

    What a great memory! And a road trip and house in the woods sounds like a great adventure for a 10 year old. Hope you guys have lots of fun and make more memories!

    Disney is such a fun trip to take, but you’re right it’s super expensive. I’m glad you have a fun road trip to look forward to this summer!
