Packing for Vacation

Packing for Vacation

First, congratulations deciding you’re willing and able to take on a vacation. I personally find the idea of going to some other place foreign to our toddler and trying to stay there for more than just a few hours terrifying. Staying the night is quite an undertaking. We’re planning to do it for the first time this summer. Anyway, the whole process is scary enough without forgetting something so here’s some helpful information on how to pack for your adventure.

If you touch it on a normal day for your child it needs to go with you. Find a way to mark items with brightly colored tape or maybe placing them in a certain place. The last use of the day means the item gets packed up. This does make packing an all-day process, however, it makes you much less likely to forget things. When I pack myself I do it a few days before we leave. That way I don’t forget anything I need to be comfortable in the process of making sure my son has everything he needs to eat and stay healthy.

Medically Fragile Door Sign by Love For Everly

Medically Fragile Door Sign by Love For Everly

It was brought to my attention there is a beautiful hanging sign for only $12.00 at Love for Everly’s Etsy Shop. No printing is required, and the proceeds go toward the cause detailed below. I know a large portion of you don’t actually want to have something professionally printed. This is a nice alternative. As you’ll see when you visit, there are options for a baby boy, baby girl, young boy, young girl, and multiple children.


My daughter, Everly Marie Hopkins, was born with Trisomy 18, a complex and mostly fatal genetic condition. This chromosomal disorder affected every part of her body making her a prime candidate for infection, illness and early death. Any small sickness carried by someone else could potentially be life-threatening for her tiny body. In a desire to protect my daughter, I placed a specially designed sign on our front door alerting and/or reminding potential visitors of her fragility. I hunted high and low for a sign such as this but to no avail and thus had to commission a custom sign be made. Thus, came the inspiration for our sign…to politely but stylishly share how careful we must be around our medically fragile babies and children. If someone you love or know has a condition that requires extra care and barriers at times (like cold and flu season), this sign is the perfect choice!
