Cartoon of the Week

How fitting! Long gone are the days when I could just grab my purse and leave the house to run an errand. Now, it's getting the diaper bag, getting bottles prepared and packed, make sure we've got enough diapers/wipes, change of clothes in case she ruins the outfit she has on, sunglasses/sunhat (hey, it's a rough life living in the sunny south when you always need protection for lil Ru's eyes!), and oh, my purse too. Which usually becomes me taking my wallet out and shoving it in the diaper bag too, forget anything else I used to care about in my purse. Now, as long as I've got all the "essentials", we're set. I think when we went to Florida for the long weekend, Alli had like two bags of stuff and we had a tiny suitcase for us. Gone are the days I'd pack 4 pairs of shoes "just in case" I wanted to wear certain ones with certain outfits. Now, Alli has 5 headbands, 20 outfits, a whole new package of diapers... all for a 3 day trip. Needless to say, I'm terrified to think of how we'll pack everything for our week long trip to Ohio... hopefully we don't forget Ru, like it looks like this lady did in the cartoon above...

  1. I totally agree! The first time we went on a road trip Molly was 3 weeks old and all her stuff fit in the trunk and our stuff was in the backseat! Thankfully now our parents have most of the stuff we used to bring with us!
