I am a notorious over-packer, but we have to keep our luggage to what we can carry through the airport and pack in our rental car along with DS2’s stroller, car seat, and PNP. So I need some help determining what NOT to bring, even though I’ve seen it recommended on other packing lists and threads.
Bubbles - to entertain DS2 while in the park (I can skip this right?)
Umbrella (we will have ponchos/raincoats and a stroller cover)
String lights - for finding the stroller at night (Trying to save $5 here. Is it well lit enough that a bright ribbon on the handle will be enough on a gray stroller at night?)
Children’s medicine - If DS2 gets sick at the parks, I will pay $$$ at the babycare center. We’re also staying offsite, so we’ll drive past a grocery store every day.
Please tell me if you think I am setting myself up for disaster or not. Also, what are your thoughts on bringing a Mickey stuffed animal to the park? Is that going to be confusing since they sell them there? Is that stupid because he’s going to get lost? Is that smart because he’s going to want me to buy one?
