Mother / Son Trip - Random Thoughts

I've traveled with LOTS of different people to Walt Disney World, but never before have I just gone with me and my son. While I haven't really had a problem with assimilating my daughters into being girlfriends, I'm finding that the thought of traveling with my 22 year old son is much different than the thought of traveling with my husband or room mate. Maybe it's all just in my head, but there you have it.

It's not that I don't know what my son likes to do at Disney so much. That's not the problem, the problem is that in the past I've discovered that whenever my companion for the day is male everyone assumes that we're a couple. I went once with my roommate to a Princess Breakfast and everyone single one of them put us on the spot asking if he was my prince or we had found true love.

Princess Breakfast - forget it, not with the previous experience
Spa Day for Two - not so much
DJ Room/Dinner at STK - sort of weird, more of someplace I should be with a date or husband
Italian Water Taxi (advertised as romantic) - meh... I might suck this one up

Perhaps I'll ham it up with the Princesses and say "Hello Snow White! This is my son Prince Kirk - He's single, do you have any friends?" laugh LOL!! He'll kill me, but at least I'll avoid that awkward assumption.

I'm really hoping that it's obvious he's my son. *I* think it is, I'm not one of those women who looks 10 years younger than she really is. Perhaps I'm just being paranoid. But I have made alterations in the trip because of it.

laugh I totally understand what you are saying. I was 8 months pregnant with Blondie and I was traveling with my baby brother to Tennessee for my mom's surprise birthday party. We stopped and I had someone asked us when "we" were due. Funny thing is when I said "OH NO, this is my brother" the guy who asked us said "so!" Yes, we were in TN at the time. I mean we ARE from Alabama but NO!!!!

I do like the idea of looking for him a princess LOL. It's hard not to assume, I've done it at work with a brother and sister that come to their appointment together. I guess you just have to roll with it and remember that some people just don't hink before they speak!
