When the boys were younger, I carried the kitchen sink with me. Books, toys, crayons, snacks, first aid supplies; you name it, I probably had it with me. I now revel in carrying with me a mere handbag (or a camera bag). The downside to this is those unexpected times like trips to see the pediatrician. Last week I had to take Abbott to the clinic, and we waited and waited and waited for a test he needed. As pictured in the top photo, the boys started wrestling, playing hide and seek...
...lots of general silliness.
One of the things that was abandoned to a book shelf after the diaper bag went away is a great book called Fun on the Run. (A couple of years ago, I gave it to many people as a holiday gift, I like it so much.) This is full of ideas for the doctor's office, restaurants, grocery stores....you get the idea. This book is now going to have a permanent home in the car so that the next time we spend hours somewhere unexpectedly, we have some fun ideas for how to pass the time.
