Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

disney craycation recap

Welp, we survived. We went to Disney World with two toddlers--a three year old and a nineteen month old. We got back on Wednesday and my response to people's questions about the trip has been, "Well, the kids were terrrrrrible, but we still managed to have fun."

That's not just me exaggerating, by the way: the kids were really, really badly behaved... one more so than the other. Any guesses as to which one?

Pack your princess dresses for Disney World @ohbotherblog

Whaaaat? Not that little princess; no way. Oh, yes way.

I get it: the kids are overstimulated, they're way off schedule, they're missing naps, they're sleeping in weird rooms, they're hot, it's crowded, they're waiting in lines, they're exhausted. Also, having my parents and myself all in the same place provides many opportunities to try to play us off each other and test out our patience... and discipline levels.

But let's just say I made many parents feel good about themselves and their children during this trip.

People have been following up my admission by saying, "but your photos looked like you had such a great time!" Listen, you've seen the clickbait articles; you can make anything look good on Instagram.

If I were completely honest on social media, the trip would have looked primarily like this:

Oh and I guess some of this:

In all honesty, we did have a great time, despite the less-than-pleasant kids' behavior. We ate a ton of great food and had some really fun experiences.

I've already had people asking me for suggestions for their next Disney trip, so I'm going to try to break it down into multiple posts focusing on the various parks, dining, etc. Given how good I am about updating the blog currently, this may take me until my next Disney trip to complete, but hey, we've all gotta have goals. Keep checking back for updates.

In the meantime, I'll leave you with this tip for your next Disney trip: leave the kids at home. Disney World is awesome for adults.
