Every once in a while I have a moment of pure genius! This weekend I had one of those moments in the middle of an ongoing argument between the Princess and the Professor.
They had been after each other all day, both very snippy with fingers pointing out each others faults. After many unsuccessful attempts to try and get them to treat each other lovingly and with respect I blurted out “Children who behave naughty are not allowed into Disney”.
The little Princess stopped immediately but the Professor challenged the idea.
“How do they know if we’ve been naughty? Will you tell on us?”
Tattling is frowned upon in our house, so much so, that it’s one of our big rules. Obviously I couldn’t “tattle” on them to Disney. I had to quickly come up with a plan and as I searched the kitchen for inspiration my eyes landed on a recent piece of mail we just received from the Disney Magical Express. The icon has Mickey on it with a set of wings.
Of course Mickey would send a Disney Cam to monitor kids behaviors!
Without missing a beat, I picked up the opened envelope and started looking around the room. Unfortunately we have not been able to pin point exactly where the DC has been hovering, but every once in a while someone (mostly mummy or daddy) detects movement out of the corner of our eye.
Don’t judge me!
It’s all innocent fun and it’s helped change the climate in the house this weekend, that is until the Princess became overtired at which point only sleep fixes her challenging mood.
My reasoning: Santa has his Elf on the Shelf…Mickey has the Disney Cam.
