gone girl: essential

gear for moms on the go

For me, the best impromptu trips have happened when I hit my breaking point and told everybody ‘That’s it; everyone in the car!’ Or that time I messaged my girlfriend down the street with “Mom’s Night Out, tonight? YES!” And of course, when I got that text from my husband with “Weekend getaway booked; organize the babysitter ;)” For those kind of moments, you need an easily remembered list of things to take. The key to knowing the right gear to take is immediately knowing the ONLY things you need. For those Playdates with Babies and Toddlers, you only need a mid-size cross strap bag with the following: FOR THE KIDS -Portable snacks (Apples, granola bars, etc.) -Sunscreen -Diapers and wipes in a zip lock bag -Extra bottles and/or sippy cups -Mini blanket, Pacifier and a few toys -Change of clothes: Shirt, pants, shorts, socks FOR YOU -Lip gloss -Water bottle & snack 72

ADD -Gum -Lip gloss or lip stick -Smart Phone & Wallet -Snacks/Dark chocolate (Hey you never know there might need a line at the restaurant) -Sunglasses & earrings, necklace, scarf, whatever you usually don’t wear that makes you feel like the amazing woman you are. Dress up! For that Weekend Getaway, grab the carry-on luggage. Unless you are going away for more than 2 nights, make it easy on yourself. Weekend getaways can be an overnight by yourself or a weekend with your partner. Pack only what you love such as: Your Favorite -seasonal clothing, shoes, socks & undergarments -novel or your Kindle, journal and pen -Champagne -earrings or necklace -Only need a tooth brush, toothpaste, deodorant, face wash, mascara and lip gloss, and birth control. Ladies, multiples are going to lead you down roads you never thought you would be on. They are going to challenge you. They are going to change you. And they are going to make you the kind of person who simplifies and takes only what she needs. On those days when all you want is to get gone, know you are not alone. We all have those days. Take a deep breath, count to three, let out a cry if you need to. Then look at your phone, let go of any guilt you feel and book that impromptu playdate, mom’s night out or weekend getaway. Look back at our list and pack only what you need.
