Ok, after giving my Self and four kids a bath, and getting Nathan and the teenager awake (by pouncing and dog pile, naturally), it is time to pack up!
We have blankets for the strollers when it is cool in the morning and to cover them for naptime in the afternoon.
We have snacks and water and juice boxes for the kids.
We have bottles and sippy cups ready for the babies.
We have baby food and baby snacks and pre-measured formula for the babies.
We have diapers (both sizes), wipes, cloth for changing, and a change of clothes for diaper blowouts and cold water rides.
We have the stroller, baby seat, and baby backpack.
Ears are charged, phones are charged, the teenager’s iPod is charged.
Deaf passes ready, foster passes ready, wallet, and at least twenty seven binkies.
That’s about as ready as we can be.
Playing hard sure is work!
