Frenzied Friday – Packing with a Toddler


We travel….a LOT.  But if you are a regular reader of Pardon My Poppet you already know this.  I find it chaotic to try to pack for a Toddler as well as myself.  Often I wake up in the middle of the night the day before we leave in a panic.  ”I forgot to pack the diapers!”  or some other such necessity.  Yesterday, Poppet only slept for 40 minutes.  This did not leave a lot of “me” time in the day, let alone wrapping my mind around packing for our trip to Sudbury in the morning.  I had no choice.  I had to pack with her sitting beside me.

No sooner did I get her bag open on the floor and started taking things out of her wardrobe, than she decided it looked like great fun and wanted to help.  Out came an entire shelf of tiny clothing!  I had to stop her!!!!  Ah….an idea.

“Poppet?”  She looks at me curiously.  ”Take this.”  I hand her a dress.  ”Put it in the bag.”

She did.  Jackpot!  My baby has turned into a little girl who is able to help!  Given, most of her clothing was piled up high on top of the bag, but at least it was in the general vicinity and she stayed out of trouble!  Bonus!  I’m actually looking forward to packing for the return trip home, it was kinda fun!

Warmest regards,

For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
