My daughter and her husband just listed their house for sale. They have been working hard getting it ship-shape for the big open house. Their real estate agent suggested that they make plans to be away from home for the day, so they made a plan to get the kids out of the house. Off they went with my 5-year-old grandson and his 2-year old sister. My daughter said, “Hey Charlie, we are going to “FURNITURE EXTRAVAGANZA! You get to sit in all the chairs and pick which one is the best! How do you feel about that?” He replied, “That’s awesome! I am super excited to go to FURNITURE EXTRAVAGANZA!” He talks like that a lot, I think it’s from some TV show he watches. They want kids to be “super excited” about things like getting their teeth cleaned, and other such mundane things. As they neared their destination, my daughter said, “Charlie, how would you feel if we didn’t go to FURNITURE EXTRAVAGANZA?” He said, “I think that would make me sad. I want to go home, but first I want to go to FURNITURE EXTRAVAGANZA.” She said, “What if I told you that we decided to go to DISNEYLAND instead?” Just then, they pulled into the parking lot. Needless to say, Charlie was super excited. Both of the kids were thrilled with every moment of their trip to Disneyland. They spent the night at Disney hotel, went to the beach the next day, and when they got home, they had several very nice offers on their house.

Disneyland certainly trumps Furniture Extravaganza! Glad they god some good offers. Home-selling is not an easy task.

I guess it's good that he was excited about sitting in chairs:) It is pretty amazing that they got such great offers on the house. The area they live in is a hot market though. The house is now in escrow.

They are lucky to live only about an hour's drive from it right now. They might as well take advantage of it while they can.

Instead of furniture extravaganza, it was an extravaganza at Disneyland. Still, the kids were happy & excited for both.

Such a nice attitude he has. I remember this video about a kid who was pranked. He was asked to get his birthday PRESENT inside a bag or something and it turned out to be a banana. Instead of crying he was jumping for joy. He obviously was happy with his present.
