Packing with Toddlers 101

So why could I not have received advice from ANYONE that you NEVER assume you'll be out of your house the night you plan?  I only say that because after my grand assumption I realized every single diaper in our house was packed up and moved out.

This of course would be the time that my son decides to have "fun" and smear a "substance" around his room, crib, Grapenut, etc.  Bath time it is!  And of course, Grapenut doesn't want to be left out, so in she goes.  Now let's journey back.

Blow out.





The possibilities are endless at this point.  We could leave them in the bath for the next hour.  We could put them in big kid undies except they are all packed.  We could wrap a towel around and pin it.  We could let them go commando... no, WAY too weird.

I left Dust to do the brainstorming on that one and hopped in the car to go grab our stash of diapers (and a coffee, because yes, I packed that too).  It was turning out to be a great morning.

As I was driving away I remembered I normally kept my emergency-blow-out-have-to-have-SOMETHING-care-kit in the car so I searched high and low for it and found it.  Success.  Except no diapers.  Failure.  Then I opened a flap, and voila, 2 diapers.  Size 1.  Success, with a twist of failure.  Let me reiterate that I have 2 toddlers... they may both be in the 10% weight category as other kids their age, but they are no size 1.

But who cares?!  The each had a diaper!
