Disney Princesses at Disneyland Dug Hank

Hank is a Ladies Man

I never pegged his dad for being a player either.  Craig always seemed available for those late night booty calls, so it surprised me to find out I wasn’t the only show in town.  I must have at least had priority seating. On our recent trip to Disneyland, Hank showed signs of following in his father’s unassuming footsteps. Even the Disney Princesses at Disneyland didn’t escape Hank’s charms.

I’m afraid I have a little Bieber on my hands.  He’s just tone deaf and probably weighs a little more.

How I draw this conclusion is objective, not oedipal. Hank’s behavior during our vacation to sunny Southern California. He bagged two princesses, serenaded a much younger woman, and gave me a golden shower.

Singing to a Little Lady – Like he Was a Tramp

When we were waiting in line for our rental car, a forward little girl in Suri Cruise kitten heels put the moves on him.  He played hard to get.  She sashayed her little self over to the tourist brochures and picked herself out the map to Mickey D’s and handed it to Hank.  Hank does not frequent the golden arches so his sister had to tell him it was for Mcdondalds.  He then proceeded to steal her heart by belting out “Old Macdonald had a Farm.” Glee style.  Then she kept following him after that prompting him to tell her, “you’re not that special.”

Disney Princesses

Next, we waited in line for days at the Princess Laire to do a meet and greet with the Disney Princesses at Maren’s request.  Hank was along for the ride and one of only a few boys stuck in the line with their sisters.  As a parent of a 6 year old girl, I highly recommend this attraction.  The line is long, but the princesses give each child individual attention which makes for a very special experience.  Hank seemed disinterested, but turned on the charm once inside.  I’m pretty sure he got to 2nd base with Arial and was in the middle of a Belle and Tiana sandwich.




I had to include this picture of Hank, Maren, and Arial because the kid is actually giving a thumbs up without any prompting. This, my friends, is very very scary.

The Golden Shower

It has been well documented within this blog, that Hank still wears GoodNites at night.  What I have never praised him for in this space is that he has never had an accident during the day since he has been potty trained.  Until, of course, our trip to Disneyland in which he wet his pants twice.  You would think I would, after the first accident, pack a change of clothes with us during the day in case it happened again, but I did not.  So I guess some of Hank’s superior IQ could come from me.

Prior to his second accident, he told me he had to use the bathroom.  Not knowing where the closest restroom was exactly, I picked him up thinking I would run there quickly.  He then told me he didn’t have to go anymore.  This didn’t really make sense to me until I felt my side warm and wet. I realized that he no longer had to go because he already went.

I don’t want to be the kind of mother in law that  Hank’s future spouse hates, but I think I may be. If he keeps up with his Mac Daddy ways, he may trick someone eventually.  Yesterday alone, I caught him sucking the water out of the kitchen sponge, eating lotion from the container, and wearing his sister’s underwear proudly.  Oh, and he is a complete Mama’s Boy.  So if he finds himself a woman or life partner willing to devote themselves to him, I may become very protective and try to figure out what’s in it for them.  Shower anyone?

    You slay me. No really, you just do. The way you tell these stories, AAACK! I will have to agree with you on the whole "pee on eachother" thing. People are such freakshows, it's just bizarre! Anyway, thanks for the laugh.

    This is hilarious, best Disneyland memories I've ever heard. And truly? I didn't think there was ANYONE out there like my son. I have plenty of pics of him in his sister's underwear and just today I posted a pic of him licking yogurt off our table. I'm so proud.

    What a total playa you're raising. I'm telling you, it's the boys who act like they don't care who get all the chicks. My brother's like that and you would literally think he's the hottest thing going, what with all the little 16 year old sluts who wear too much makeup and not enough clothes who hang all over him.

    Clearly I have strong feelings about this.

    When I have a little girl I'm totally going to take her to Bibbity Bobbity Boutique so she can get all princessified – do they have those at Disneyland?

    Yes, they have the Bibbity Bobbity Botiques on steroids that you walk through right after the Princess Laire in which Princesses can have their hair and make-up done after you pick out a dress, shoes, and tiara.

    Thanks.  We had a great time, but so glad to be home.  Taking 3 kids of different genders/age was rough, I need a vacation from my vacation.

    Thanks Allyson.  Ya, I don't get the golden shower thing.  It's disgusting.  What I didn't mention is that Craig didn't want to go back to the hotel after I got pissed on.  He wanted me to just take my sweatshirt off & let my shirt dry.  Um, gross and no way was I walking around with urine on me all day.  From that point on we brought a change of clothes for him and took him to the bathroom every 20 minutes.  Really, the kid has never had an accident before during the day.  I guess he was just really excited.

    Hey, you know those fetishists… they start young.

    Oh, this is downright hilarious. It's important to let him know that his fetishes are completely normal, because if he tries to repress his love of the freaky-deeky, he'll end up looking for the even weirder stuff. Though? I don't think it gets much weirder than the people who excrete bodily fluids on one another. Ewww.

    This had me laughing, heartily. Thank you.

    Wow, women's underwear? He's going to make some lady really happy someday.

    Is it just me, or was Ariel an Asian?

    You have your hands full.

    Um, said in a nice way- coming from someone who hears that ALL THE TIME.

    So, don't hate me for saying it. ;)

    This is awesome. I married a mama's boy. His sister and I just call him "Prince Dallas" She defends him even when he admits he is being an ass. Sometimes it makes me want to punch her…so practice your blocking moves!

    Oh Holy Hell. I think I'm in love.

    The boy pees himself twice, sports a Mom tattoo and tells would-be lovers, "You're not that special."

    Does he have plans for Valentine's Day? Because I'm free.

    I heart Hank, but I'm already married, so you won't be my mother-in-law.

    Which is kind of a bummer.

    Dude, Belle was totally putting him in a love embrace – look at that. Amazing! Hank put the Disney ladies under a spell. And you under some pee. Good times. Starting potty training this summer. God help me.

    I want to take Hank and my son and put them in a padded room together. We may or may not need to supply them with helmets.

    We should get my son and your son together. It's likely illegal in most states and certain to cost us thousands in damage/ER visits. But the pics, oh the pics.

    We are thinking of taking our 4 (currently: oldest girl is 6, 3yo twin girls, and the 2yo boy wonder) to Disney. I gather I'll need hooch?

    Wow, Poppy just told me your son is 23? I hope Hank grows out of some of these characteristics!

    I think Hank and Tater would get along really, really well. Both of them are gonna make two girls real happy someday. Sigh.

    I WOULD DIE if Hank told me I wasn't that special.

    soaked in pee too much here, too. Gross.

    #poorhank I'm 99% sure that if he ever tries to get with a lady, you'll just happen to be there and just happen to have that picture of Hank wearing his sister's underwear.
