As I am packing for a weekend away, I realized something.........

We have a lot of people in our family. lol!
  • 4 shirts/kid = 20 shirts
  • 2 shorts, 1 pant/kid = 15 leg coverings
  • underwear, no skimping = 16 pairs underwear
  • 1 set of pjs/kid = 5 pjs (pants and tops because it will be cooler where we are going)
  • 5 pillows
  • 4 sleeping bags
  • 1 blanket
  • 20 diapers
  • 1 pkg wipes
  • 5 stuffies

Then, C and I need to pack our clothing bag, and we need to pack 7 toothbrushes, two sets of hair care products, a billion hair-pretties, a soap, a kitchen sink, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Hope you aren't going across the boarder... because Canada Customs might get a little irate at the Partridge in the Pear tree... something about cross breeding/pollination might be a bit of an issue.
best wishes. I had the same problem boys heading out with grandparents on vacation... so I sent clothes before they left... then realized middle one had ONE pair of shorts to wear for the week.
Not good. Second hand store to the rescue! Four shorts (all able to pass on to his 'twin' who is about the same size) for five dollars.

With 5 kids, I know exactly what you are going through! Have a great weekend!

The billion hair pretties rang SO true - out of my 5 children...4 are girls.
