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.
SOOO… in case you’re planning on traveling in a plane, going to a restaurant to EAT, going to a nice wedding, WHEREVERRR~~ here are some great links for busy bags and how to create them for all ages!!
