Packing List

Zora is off to California tomorrow with Grandma and Grandpa. I’m in charge of packing, or so I thought.

After dropping her off at preschool, I discovered that she began packing last night.

So what does a 4 year old pack for a weekend trip to see her Great Grandfather in Los Angeles?

  • Stuffed animals (lambie; black bear; caterpillar; polar bear; kitty neck pillow; hello kitty; monkey snuggler)
  • pink lovey blanket
  • camera
  • 3 hair bows
  • a roll of smarties
  • sparkly sunglasses (she is going to LA, afterall)
  • activity book
  • 3 notes, each one addressed to: “Erik, Erica, Abram”
  • 1 pair of socks
  • 5 pairs of underwear

I’m proud that she knows how much underwear she’l need!

    Oh goodness – this is a great post. Good job packing, Z!!

    I’m impressed that you are sending her off to LA! Wow… Samara was invited to go to the children’s museum in Grand Rapids today with a grandma from church and her grand kids. S was soooo excited. As I strapped her in to someone else’s car, I had the urge to give her my cell phone – - – and then when it was 1:45pm and she still wasn’t home (the grandma had said she’d drop her off at 1:00), I was frantic. The grandma didn’t have a cell phone… realizing I’m a bit too connected to my kiddles… All is well, btw… and now I have to finish my sermon. Glad you have this precious time off with your cute little man!
