Walt Disney Worldness Wednesday - Grace Meets Minnie

Pete got this shot of Grace & Minnie during our first trip with the kids in September 2008.  We had dinner at Chef Mickey's on our first night at WDW - a dinner that has become a tradition.  After checking in to our hotel, we head over to the Contemporary to Chef Mickey's.  It is a good opportunity for lots of character time {without using a park ticket} to set the mood for our trip.

A Growing Boy

We went for Sam's 6 year checkup last week. I can't believe how big he is getting.  He weighed 61lbs and was 4'1.5" - still in 95-97% range for both. We had a discussion with his doctor after he asked about Sam's appetite. 

Dr: Does he eat well, have a good appetite?

Us: Yes, he's a great eater. We're scared for the teenage years. (After soccer practice last week, he ate a Chickfila sandwich in addition to kids' meal.  The kid has always had an appetite.)

Dr: Well, let me tell you.  All-you-can-eat buffets {not my favorite for various reasons} are going to be your friend.  Take him and let him eat.  And hope he gets full before they kick him out.

Fortunately, Sam stays active enough to burn what he's eating.  I really am scared though about how we'll pay to feed him through the teenage years.  Or how we'll survive the buffets.
