The invitation to attend the Disney Junior FRiYAY Party and write this sponsored post could not have come at a better time.
Everything is Mickey right now in the eyes of our little Ozzybear. “Mickey go car!”, “Mickey race, VROOM!”, and “Mickey MOUSE!” are fired off by Oz in rapid succession while jumping and pointing at the TV. Two things usually go through my head in these ever increasing moments, “He is actually ‘using his words’” and “Thank God for Disney Junior”.
Ozzy could not have been more prepared for the party. After sending the big kids off to school this past Friday he plopped himself on the couch for a brand new episode of Mickey and the Roadster Racers (“Mickey go car” in our house) and he was pumped. I think he sang/yelled “Mickey Party” most of the way to the FRiYAY live event. As soon as he saw the glorious Mickey balloon arch framing the party floor he knew this was the right place.
After exploring the amazing Roadster breakfast, Ozzy was ready to race, or as I perceive it, running away with reckless abandon. He only made it a few quick strides before he was distracted by Mickey’s Car Wash and must of spent a good 10 minutes running through before dashing to the next area that caught his wild blue eyes.
What I’ve grown to love about Oz obsessing over Mickey and the other Disney Junior shows (despite the fact that he will watch the same episode 3,000 times in a row) is the underlying lesson each story has. Whether helping others, believing in yourself, or simply having fun while working hard, they all boost his confidence while supplementing the lessons and encouragement Michael and I do our best to instill in him. Now we’ll just have to wait for the episode that encourages him to take a nap and eat his dinner and all will be well in the world.
Don’t forget to tune in to Disney Junior on Disney Channel every FRiYAY morning for new episodes of your kid’s favorite shows!
