On top of what's on the bottom

trolley

For a little trip to an indoor waterpark I packed five pairs of swim shorts for Gray. He has this thing where even if they are the slightest bit damp, he will not wear them. Like, he will have to wear his pants and socks and shoes and longsleeve shirt instead, if his swim shorts are the littlest bit still wet.

I think I've got him covered. I made sure of it this time. As much as I'd love to tell him to suck it up, I am erring on the side of making everyone happy.


Puffs up my chest, feels like a good Mom thing to do.

Until I realized that I only packed Gray five pairs of swim shorts. No pajamas. No underwear. No other clothes. And definitely not his sandals.

That seems to be the way it goes.

  3. Oh so true, that is the way it goes. I'm famous for not packing diapers. I mean who forgets diapers? I have to pack those every time I leave the house. Why can't I remember them on trips?

    Hopefully he won't mind sleeping in swim trunks. ;)

  6. LOL! I totally get it. Like, when I packed for Disney World for a 2 week trip I was so proud because I thought I had everything...and when we arrived I realized we had ZERO swim diapers...major fail! :-)

  7. Oh Steph, it's not like you have 4 kids to pack for. Maybe they have clothes in the gift shop his size.

  8. I'm pretty sure I've done that. Which is why the youngest is getting the "suck it up" treatment.

  9. It never fails that you will forget something. At least he will have a great time swimming! ;)

  11. I will never forget pjs again after a certain experience in high school where I forgot to bring mine to a sleepover and had to wear my friend's sundress. Very uncomfortable. I don't know why I didn't just sleep in my clothes but I wore a fancy frilly dress instead.

    It was so annoying that while I might forget diapers, pjs are no problem! Maybe this will turn into a perfect teachable moment and Gray will remind you next time. :)

  12. An indoor waterpark sounds like a lovely kind of getaway for this time of year. Is the water warm?
