Spring is in the air (or at least it has been) and summer is coming up right behind. What comes to mind? For me it's about the outings, the trips, and the adventure. However, with time, I've come to the acceptance that part of adventure is mishaps. Not much we can do except grin and bear it. Wait! That's not 100% true. I may not be able to control circumstances to prevent misadventures, but I can certainly come prepared so that when they do occur I can be ready to smooth it over without it turning into a major calamity. Once again, I turned to my trusted notepad and... created lists! For me, one of the hardest lists to get down pat is the baby travel checklist. Between different sorts of trips (the park, road trips, flying...) and being that kids are continuously growing and changing and are such unique individuals, there aren't too many constants. I have an overall list that I use and just look it over to determine what I need for each trip for each child. It's more than the basics. I'm still Marry Poppins when it comes to having gear and paraphernalia on hand. I've also included some of my specific favorites and the more popular variety of the items. So here goes!
