Oh my God, going away for even a night for me is a nightmare, and I love travelling, but I HATE, HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE PACKING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would rather go through another c-section, if it meant that I NEVER in my life had to pack or unpack a suitcase again…you think I kid, no no I shit you not, packing and unpacking is the worst for moms….
This article I read on thestir.com had me laughing then crying at my current problem of packing for just a three day vacation. http://thestir.cafemom.com/toddler/174557/packing_for_a_toddler_in
It is bad enough when you have one child, but when you have two, you literally lose your mind. The hubby so kindly said; “Hey, I will give you a half hour to go pack.” I looked at him and just shook my head and went upstairs…why? Why the eff do I have to pack? i kept saying this to myself as I shoved random things into my heys jet pack, which I have to use because I’m scared shitless of bedbugs, and bringing them into my world. I think for my next trip, I’m going to force the hubby to pack and see what happens, I mean the worst case senario is that he forgets the majority of things and we have to buy new stuff.
Do you have any packing tips for mothers with children, or families in general?
