Not that I was in the running, but I lost any shot I had at the Mother of the Year award when, after my boys looked at the carriage rides and politely asked if they could take one, I yammered on about the meaning of a dollar. And now I look back in regret. Compare how often your kids ride a roller coaster to how often they ride like the colonial kids did? Apparently most parents don’t make the mistake I did. Carriage rides are popular and fill fast — reservations required.
