I like to think I’m somewhat organized. I keep the diaper bag stocked with wipes, diapers, snacks, toys and socks. I purposely leave extra jackets in the car and even stuff empty ziploc bags in my glove box (I use them for everything). But, last week, I lost my mojo.
I took my two youngest boys to LEGOLAND California to play in the Duplo Playtown and ride the train (five million and one times). Normally, my kids are “home poopers” so I’m not exactly refilling the diaper bag with diapers and wipes all that often. Half way through our playtime, the little guy squatted, made the crooked mouth grunty face and proved me wrong- he does not only do his business while at home. Tearing my 3-year-old from the train (picture a train obsessed, stubborn child right about now), I walked over to the diaper bag to fetch a diaper and wipes. Wipes? They are gone.
I started role-playing in my head.
1. Public restroom paper towels. I’ve done the whole bathroom paper towels with water route before and let me tell you, if you haven’t tried that, don’t.
2. Go back to the car. I wasn’t about to head back to the car unless we were leaving. The child was already freaking out and that would most definitely cause his head to spin.
A light bulb went on over my head.
It wasn’t until I had practiced an exit strategy, and began my nervous sweat, that I remembered Nanny Caddy was somewhere in LEGOLAND. And not just somewhere, like steps away from where I was. Wipes? purchased. Diaper? changed. Meltdown? adverted.
So I raise my water bottle to you, Nanny Caddy! Thank you for maintaining my sanity, keeping my children happy and helping me out when I needed it most.
If you are at any of these locations, you are in luck. Nanny Caddy supplies parents with diapers, wipes, pacifiers, sun block, Tylenol, sippy cups, nursing wraps, diaper cream, Wet Ones, Purell and more.
Disclosure: I was not asked (or paid) to write about Nanny Caddy. I just wanted to.
