I have always been a believer that when it comes to bags, less is more. I still believe this but as Connor requires more toys, books and snacks on our travels, it's time for him to have his own bag. It's not just because they have the most adorable kids' bags on the market, our travel gear combined is taking up more room than I have! So although I know I will end up carrying the second bag, I am going to try a mini back-pack for him.
More than ever a checklist is important to me. My bag will “house” our essentials, my wallet, tickets, passports/Nexus cards, sunglasses etc and his: diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, baby medicine (just in case!) and thermometer, snacks and drinks. Connor’s bag will be for the fun items, his little airplanes, his favourite books, crayons, a toy car, little laptop and of course his beloved Scout!
