Almost ready to go to Spain.
Just spent the last 4 hours repacking risotto and granola into little baggies and grouping those baggies into bigger baggies...
Ok... so am I the only person who does this?
We have the "beverage bag", the "breakfast bag", and the all too important "Goody Bag" (in a strategic location (and seemingly deserving of capitals)).
We have a Pandora's box of medication's for every possible ill - real or imagined and a plethora of bandages, swabs and ointments...
We have clothing to suit every possible temperature or climate, alone or worn in several disparate combinations (fashion to the wind)...grouped by kid, colour and size...
Every possible sanitary, disinfecting, rehydrating or bug repelling solution available in wash, wipe or spray format (travel size...),
Bathing suits, wet suits and a brand new leopard skin regulation conforming teeny tiny set of swimming trunks for the "Big Guy"
Almost everything checked off the "before we go" list-
