Not an afternoon goes by when I’m not “quizzed” by my daughter during our drives home from preschool. At three, she is well on her way to a successful career in either interrogation or drill sergeantry. With spit-fire quickness and relentless badgering, no question is out of bounds and there are no free passes.

“Mommy what is my favorite color?”

“What does Goofy eat?”

“Does Goofy eat what Bella (DoginOHio) eats?”

“Does Goofy have a cat too like we do? Remember when our cat threw up on the carpet?”

“Who is Mickey Mouse married to?”

“Who is Daddy married to?”

“What are the princesses’ names?”

“Mommy you didn’t name all the princesses”

“Mommy you don’t know all the princesses’ names, do you?”


And with that, another mom FAIL.

No, I don’t know all the Disney Princesses. When I was her age there were what? Two? Three, if you counted Snow White. Now, there are 437 and frankly I can’t keep ‘em straight. Plus, apparently you don’t have to have royal cartoon blood to be considered a Princess in the mind of a three year old. Nope, you basically need long hair and poofy dress. And the poofy dress is optional if you are a mermaid. Dude, there are a lot of rules.

But life for this momma just got easier because thanks to Disney and Mom Central, we’ve been invited to see Disney on Ice – 100 Years of Magic – live and in person when it hits Cincinnati later this month. To say P is excited would be an understatement and I get to brush up on some of my character recognition for the next pop-quiz I’ll have to face. (Note to self: ask Goofy what he eats)

And wait, it gets better, one lucky winner will have the chance to do the same. Simply leave a comment here and I’ll select a winner at random for a family four-pack of tickets to opening night on September 23rd in Cincinnati.  Extra entry if you tweet the contest – just leave another comment telling me you did so.  Hurry, contest ends tomorrow (9/16) at 11:59 pm.

You know here at AmyinOHio, no one walks away a loser though, so even if you aren’t selected for the free tickets, you can still get a great deal on tickets for your family by following this link for details.  There you can purchase tickets for the Dayton or Cincinnati shows at a special Mom Select rate – 4 tickets for $44 for Monday thru Friday matinee shows or $4 off tickets for weekend shows.  Again, this discount is good for Dayton or Cincinnati shows.

Disclosure: As noted above, my family, as well as one lucky reader, will be in the audience on opening night in Cincinnati thanks to the generosity of Disney and Mom Select. No other form of compensation was received for this posting.
