How to Survive Disneyland with 2 Toddlers
A mom's worst nightmare is going to a crowded place with your 2 toddler boys who love to run and get into everything! So many things ran through my head when I thought of what to pack and how to keep the kids with us and we made our way through all the lines and crowds of people at Disneyland. I wanted to have what they needed if they got hungry or hurt, or needed something. And even though we were going to the park with 6 adults, (which totally helps with having that many set of eyes) I knew I needed things with me that would help keep the boys comfortable and keeping their needs met in this new place.
I love making lists, it helps keep me organized, allows me to see what it is I need, and I feel accomplished as I check the things off the list as I pack them. And to be real, as a mom you cant sit down and make a list in one sitting. You know you are writing down a few things, cooking dinner. Writing down a few things, making the kids a snack, while putting a band-aid on an owie. Then a few more things come to mind, like packing the first aid kit and making sure your prepared for any cuts or scrapes. And for me, I remember most when I’m in the shower, so I need my list so I can write things down throughout the day.
Here’s what my list looks like for Disneyland:
Medicine: tylenol, Benadryl (Gradey is allergic to peanuts) Gradey ended up breaking out in hives after we were at Disneyland for 5 minutes! Still not sure what caused it but we definitely we’re glad to have these things I packed on hand!
Mini First Aid Kit
Hand Sanitizer Spray
Diapers and Wipes
Change of clothes- sweats and shirt
Ergo Baby Carrier
One things I didn’t want to do was over pack for just a day trip and have to lug all this stuff around. So the list kept me focused, I didn’t forget anything and I must say I actually think we used everything I brought!
