The essentials
This mom doesn't dare not take the essentials with, because that is when disaster is bound to strike!
Every time we go somewhere for the day / afternoon, it's like I have to pack for a weekend.

Snacks, lots of juices / water, toys, the favourites always have to go with everywhere and what about spare clothes and clean t-shirt for mom!,
I thought that as soon as I pack the nappy bag away, its al over and my back and neck will get some well deserved rest from caring all the bags and my daughter etc.

I even keep spare clothe, towels and swimming costumes in the boot as we have been to visit friends and then the kids run around under the sprinklers etc.

When do we stop carrying all this around? The times that I haven’t taken a thing with, there were disasters and clothe etc had to be borrowed.

I hope that this phase will end soon and that things will quite down , or will it be replaced with sports bags and school cases etc?

Good luck to all until we reach the stage that we only have to carry ourselves!!
