We’re packing right now for an upcoming vacation. It’s the first time I've had to pack for more than a long weekend with my son. I have to say, I can’t believe how much stuff is needed to take him with us! I think he is going to end up taking up more room in my suitcase than I am. And he’s only 21 months old! The best part is that we’re going to buy some diapers once we get there so I don’t have hardly any diapers in the suitcase. I can’t blame his space on that. And I can’t even find anything that I figure I've over-packed on for him, so I don’t know that I can pare down what I have any. Oh well. What do ya do?
I also have to say I HATE shopping with my husband some times. Other times he’s great. This shopping for shorts (to go on vacation with) is about driving me nuts. We've been to like 5 different stores. None of the shorts we've found so far are good enough. They’re missing pockets. Or the pockets aren't right. Or they’re not denim. Or they don’t have his size. That last one is the only decent issue on the list, to me. Now, don’t get me wrong. I understand wanting certain things in your clothes. But, at what point do you give in and get the next best thing because what you want just doesn't exist?
I was sitting on my bathroom floor giving my son a bath tonight. We have a corner garden tub so the walls of the tub are fairly high. Tonight my son discovered he can play peekaboo by leaning down so he can’t see me anymore and then sitting up and going “Hi!”. Then he’d laugh and do it again. I couldn't help but laugh with him. It was so funny. Definitely a bright spot to my day.
