I love going on vacation, but I dread the packing beforehand. Before Brennen, packing was relatively easy, I packed for myself and the hubby took care of his own packing. If one of us forgot something, we just dealt with it or bought a replacement. It was simple!
On the other hand, packing for myself and Brennen is not so simple. I equate packing for Brennen to having to pack for an additional 10 people. Who knew that someone so small could need so many things?!?! I have to pack multiple outfits for him for each day, just in case. Not to mention, I must have both warm weather clothing and cold weather clothing for each day, regardless of the weather forecast. And let’s not forget toys, books and other items to entertain Brennen while on vacation. In addition to all of those items, Brennen is a very selective eater, so I need to pack a bag of food for him to ensure he eats while we are away. At the end of packing for Brennen, I feel like I have packed our entire house!
If only I could be Jane Jetson. With the press of a button I could have my house fold up into a tiny suitcase. (Hey, George Jetson had a car that did that, why not the house too?) Or better yet, Rosy would do it for me!
