One Couple's Stumblings Through Parenthood and Marriage

The Dark Side of Disney

Disneyland is supposed to be the happiest place on earth, right? Then why, o why, did my siblings demonstrate such deplorable behavior? Luckily, I captured it on film (or digital bits).

My siblings took the twins on the Teacup Ride. See my brother's evil look? You can see that he is the primary cup turner. He spun them so fast that even nearby teacup riders were vomiting.



And see this? We hadn't been in Disneyland more than a few hours when my sisters got tired of pushing Julia in the stroller. They made her crawl for the remainder of the day! The poor baby rubbed holes in three pairs of pants in her effort to keep up with us.


This was the worst one. We had just gotten on the boat to enter Storybook Land, when Shannon maliciously threatened to feed Kate to Monstro the whale (not pictured). Kate began crying, but before I could intercede, my sister Kelly stepped in and threatened to throw her over board if she didn't quiet down.

It isn't fair that my siblings are taking vengeance on my daughters for all of the horrors that I put them through. We may have to flee the country. Is Tennessee a foreign country?

ah, how sad to see the cycle of abuse carried on. I don't think that Tennessee is outside the greater USA, but British Columbia is lovely this time of year. Maybe we can smuggle you in our suitcases when we go.

Hmmm, intriguing proposition. Do you have a spare carseat that I can travel in?

BTW, I like you icon!

TN sounds like a good option... Doesn't Jared always have an evil face? Perhaps in that moment he had an eviler face than usual...

Jared usually conceals his evil face for the cameras - to hide the evidence. That is why this picture is so notable.

So many objections come to mind I haven't even been able to think of anything to say in four days

I think it is guilt that has gripped your mind.

What! Outrage! Is this how lazy our lawyers have become? They expect me to call them when they are suing me?
