Channeling some Martha...

Rea has been invited to go on vacation with a friend this summer. She'll be travelling to Chesapeake Bay and spending the week at J's Aunt's beach house - it sounds like a blast.

But, I've got to tell you - this trip is nearly three months away and J's already sent the packing list. I'm a little worried for Rea and me.

Here's the packing list:
  • All of your bathing suits
  • Around 12-14 T-shirts (3 need to be nice, the rest just need to be 'nock around shirts)
  • One bathing suit "cover up"
  • 5-7 pajama pants
  • One pair of church clothes
  • One pair of jeans
  • 5-7 pairs of shorts (it gets REALY HOT up there)
  • 12-14 pairs of underwear
  • I don't know if you wear any, bras we probably don't need them, we will have our bathing suits under our clothes
  • One or two Capris
  • And a fleece jacket
  • Socks
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Hairbrush
  • Ponytail holder (rubber bands) LOTS! You will need them
  • Head bands
  • Shampoo, we can share
  • Pillow
  • Blanket
  • Ipod
  • DS
  • DS Charger
  • DS games
  • Cell phone
  • Cell phone charger
  • Drawing note pad
  • Couple colored pencils in a bag
  • Portable DVD player if you have one, I have one
  • Movies, all mine are boring LOL
  • Conditioner, share that too
  • Sunscreen, go to like, Wal-Mart or somewhere and get the small kind, we will have LOTS of that also
  • Hair clips
  • 3 or 4 flip-flops
  • Tennis shoes
  • Clogs (we have been wearing them since 1st grade, if you still don't know what they are, just call me)
I hate to break it to J, but I don't think my child has 12-14 T-shirts NOR 7 pairs of pajama pants!

And Hello! What kind of problems are you expecting that you need that many pairs of underdrawers?

Kids that age actually wear the PJ pants as well pants these days. AND it sounds like J's mama doesn't do laundry on vacation like the rest of us! Cindy

i am struggling with why she evn sent her guest a list that exact to bring. does she think you guys never travel???

Two things become clear as I read this blog. 1) The person who gave you the list must really hate to do the laundry and 2) He/she could never own a little sports car and likely drives a suburban!
