Mommy Mondays: Busy Bags for Toddlers and Kids

This weekend we went to San Francisco for a wedding.  Charlotte was a flower girl and Mike was a groomsmen. <3  SUCH a cool experience for them to share!

The wedding ceremony was in a catholic church which meant…long ceremony.  Was I prepared?  NOPE.  Should I have been?  YESSSS.  This weekend we had a rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception that C needed to be “quiet and well behaved” for.  Was she?  of course not… sigh.  But I think that was more b/c I was not prepared for all the long hours she would need to be sitting quietly.  I saw all the other moms bring out a bag full of toys and snacks for their kids and instantly regretted not having busy bags for C.  I’ve listened to so many podcasts about this and I seriously kicked myself all weekend for not being better prepared.
