I have been called brave a few times already since becoming parents. The first time that we went to the movies, the first time we went out of town for the weekend, and now we’re getting ready for our first flight to California. I don’t personally think it’s brave. I think it’s the best time! While I was on maternity leave, we wanted to take advantage of me having all this time off and decided to book a trip to California to visit our hometown and family.
This week I have been thinking of what we need to bring, and whether or not I need to buy another suitcase. We’ve decided to rent a car so now that we each get 2 bags to check, I figure we might as well bring everything that we think we may need. This may be my “first time Mom” dead giveaway.
So far, Marion has been extremely easy. I really hope the trend continues. That being said, I want to make sure that I don’t forget anything that I may need. MUSTS for me would be her grooming kit (this gal has so much hair), swaddling blankets, and of course a ton of clothes. You aren’t always sure if you will get a chance to do laundry, so I figure I may as well plan on not doing it.
Is there anything I’m missing?! Is it too much?! I just can’t wait to hop on that plane. It’s been in the 80′s in California! It will be such a nice break from Winter!
