With school wrapping up for the Summer and vacations just around the corner there have been a lot of posts on different travel blogs about what to pack when traveling with a family. With our upcoming trip to the Pacific NW I plan on posting what we are packing for a week away with two kids, but I can tell you now one thing that we can not leave at home or we will have two very sad children on our hands – their lovies.
F has a stuffed sheep, given to him shortly after he turned 1, aptly named White Baa. White baa is more of a dingy grey these days, but he is a well traveled sheep, and, as we learned on a trip to the beach this past February, F can not sleep without him. L has two pink bunnies, logically named bunnies, and they are never far from her hands when sleeping either.
They have become so much a part of ‘us’ that it doesn’t matter if we forget anything, as long as it isn’t these things. And, as we found out on the aforementioned Florida trip, it is not cheap to overnight one to us (white baa took a pricey $60 overnight trip from Atlanta to Florida but the $60 made one 5 year old boy very, very happy)
Do your kids have a lovie? Does it travel with you?
