Women often worry about the mammogram and whether it will hurt. Aside from the fear of what might be, I was not scared of the mammogram. I had one seven years earlier in 2001 when I decided to have a breast reduction. So now that I am a seasoned veteran of the boob-squisher, I can tell you, its uncomfortable – more so mentally than physically. I mean, you are standing there in an open front robe letting a technician gingerly lift your breast up and onto a table. Then for as gently as she prepped the appendage, she will equally smash the hell out of it between two plexiglass plates.
Then we road the Vapor Trail…again, and again, and again…
Izzy was not confident that I was sufficiently nauseous. So we went over for a spin on Grover’s World Twirl. The clever ride attendant turned our leisurely afternoon teacup ride into a competition with the Earth over who can spin faster.
I apologize for the lack of action shots on this one. Between the spinning and the attempts at keeping breakfast inside my stomach, I was unable to take any photos of how gloriously tickled Izzy was over the way I turned green.
|Since I had taken just about all the spinning I could handle, we did a little Trick or Treating next. The trick was finding our way through
Abby Cadabby’s Magical Halloween Maze.
Which way to the treats, daddy?
Look! There they are!
“HEY! HEY! BIG BIRD, OVER HERE! OMIGOSH MOMMY IT’S BIG BIRD! IT’S REALLY HIM! HEY BIG BIRD, COME SEE ME!”
I bet Izzy thought she’d just had the most exciting moment of her life. Nothing would ever top meeting THE Big Bird. But then, the most magical of the Sesame Street characters, Abby Cadabby, skipped into the room.
Izzy was just a wee bit shy of The Count but quickly got over it as he made friends with daddy.
No matter what season you choose to visit Sesame Place, you are sure to have an amazing time.
Just ask Izzy!
