When it comes to packing men and women are very different. Women will have a list for everything that they know they will need, things they may need and things they probably wont need but better take just in case. Men on the other hand pack what they know they will need and not a pair of pants more.
Packing in our house goes something like this:
Packs for me
packs for toddler
arrange snacks for car
arrange for someone to come and look after the fur babies
give the house a blitz before leaving
arrange entertainment for car for the toddler, 5 hours with an unhappy toddler is not a good start to the holiday
have a list of fun activities to do whilst on holiday
ensure you have every charger for every electrical item you plan on taking and a spare just in case
The reason I have realised for this is that when something is forgot it is your fault!
“Oh Mummy did you remember all my things I need?!!”
