Vacation WFMW



This will be a short one - I'm on vacation afterall!

I know, I know. I'm a little slow but this idea finally dawned on me right before we left for our trip to Utah. (see post below)

We needed to leave really early on the morning of our trip. So instead of wearing pajamas to bed, I had the kids dress in the clothes that they would be wearing the next day. Traveling clothes are usually comfy anyway so sleeping in them is no problem and they're going to get all wrinkled from all the sitting in the car anyway. We also had their shoes setting right next to their beds. In the morning all they needed to do was wake up, slip on their shoes, go to the bathroom and then get in the car. Very smooth and took almost no time at all. Works for me!

Don't forget to take a trip to Rocks in My Dryer. So many great ideas - you'll feel like you're on vacation. OK, I'll feel like I'm on vacation....Oh, that's right! I am!

That is a good idea...a time saver!

I've done this so many times. It really is a time saver and it helps them to want to go back to sleeo in the car, too.

That's a great idea - we do that, too, although the kids travelling clothes are something pretty low-key, like sweats and a t-shirt! I'd forgotten this - thanks for the reminder.

I like this idea. I'll have to remeber it the next time we go somewhere.

Great idea. I've done it withthe kids and have been tempted a time or two to do it myself.

I realize I'm 2 weeks late to comment so you may never see this but my mom and dad used to do the same thing to us!! we tried to do this for school but didn't get away with it.
