"How do you pack for two small boys, a husband a dog and anything and everything you might need for a long car ride and a week at the beach?"
I have made out a list that is a little over a page long (this would be written in small single space). This list includes everything we own (well not quite but almost). I have always been an "over packer". For a weekend away when I was single I would pack 2 1/2 bags. I can only imagine what this trips baggage total will come to. I fear that I am losing the peaceful feeling and excitement of this trip as I struggle to prep for it. To my credit this will be our first big family vacation with both boys. I am a little nervous. Do you ever feel like that over paranoid mom who seems to lose her self in the small details. So what if I don't pack enough clean socks for every day, or I forget to bring a spare set of everything. Does this make me the worlds worst mother? LOL. Not really, I am enjoying every minute of it. I love lists and I love checking things off. My travel countdown has begun and I am so excited.
