As B says, we officially became parents yesterday. No, the whole childbirth, infant stage, nursing, diapering, sleepless nights, surviving teething, touring preschools, reading Goodnight Moon 47,325 times, playing dinosaurs, etc., etc., etc. didn't make us parents. A trip to Disneyland did.
This was probably the highlight of C-Man's day. He's not the most touchy-feely kid (much to my chagrin!), so to see him run up and give Pooh the biggest hug, eyes closed, gripping tightly, not wanting to let go? Yeah, that made the whole day worth it. (Even if that bear doesn't wear any pants. Hmmm.)
