Saturday - 5:15 AM

That's the time we need to leave the house in the morning.

We've never made our kids get up that early before. Sure, they do it on their own every now and then. Why just yesterday Brookie woke up at 5:15 AM to tell us she was hungry and cold. She had fallen asleep in the car on the way home from Grandma's the day before and didn't want to wake up. So we put her down for the night around 6:30. The past few weeks she has been undressing herself in her sleep (we think). So there she was, hungry from not having eaten since lunch the previous day, cold because she'd stripped down to her panties, and wide awake at 5:15 AM. 

But forcing them to get up and get moving is asking for a rough start to what is sure to be a very long day. After that comes the fun of wrangling three kids with suitcases, strollers and car seats through the airport, security, etc. And of course there's the prospect of keeping everyone quiet and well-behaved on the flight.

It's sure to be exciting, which is really what a vacation to Disneyland is supposed to be. I really hope that getting there isn't half of the fun, though. 2-3% of the fun, max. We've got six days of Disney fun ahead!
