I will be putting up more pictures later this week of the Pixie Hollow section at the Flower & Garden show at Epcot. This is one of my favorite fairy houses.

So Long Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Mickey Switch

Recently I had one of those "my baby is growing up too fast" moments. It wasn't the first and I am sure it won't be the last.

The last year has been a big year. My son entered kindergarten and turned 6. I've moved  from baby clothes and sippy cups to Sketchers and sport bottles with only a few pangs of sadness. Well,maybe more than a few. A few months ago he even lost his first tooth, followed quickly by two more. I should be an old pro by now. Yet, this time was particularly poignant. This time, my son told me he was too old.

I suppose I should have seen the signs. When his 6th birthday approached, we discussed themes for his birthday. We were going to Disney World to celebrate. ( I'm sure that is a big surprise to those who have read my blog before.) When I asked him what he wanted on his cake, he immediately said Mickey Mouse and the Clubhouse gang. Not a surprise since after more trips than he can count to Disney World, he still wants to meet Mickey each trip. Next, we turned to his school celebration. Cupcakes and goody bags were planned. When my husband suggested Mickey Mouse goody bags, the response was withering.

 "Mickey Mouse is not cool enough for school."  So Sponge Bob it was for school.
