A mom's car survival guide
Now, three kids later, my car is fully stocked with everything I could possibly need ... and more. I realized how lucky I was to have all of these things, yet again the other day when my middle daughter got sick. Yes, sick in the car while driving down a busy street. Really sick.
So, I thought I'd give a list of all of the things I am now going to keep in my car & maybe you'll add some "must haves" too!
Diapers & wipes. Wipes will be a staple now forever.
Change of clothes for all kids (including underwear!)
Change of clothes for mom (especially if you are nursing!)
I have used all of these items. They have all made their way into my car because I didn't have them & wish I had. The first aid kit was one of those items. Out playing & Vivienne fell, scraped her leg. Not too badly but I realized I didn't have anything "just in case." Also the benadryl was used by a friend who had a child having an allergic reaction & we were about 15 minutes from any store.
What things do you keep that you wouldn't leave home without? What is my list missing? Would love your comments!
