Now more than ever our family is on the go. This soccer field, that piano lesson, this dance class, that baseball field, this school assembly, that birthday party, this meeting, that class, and the list goes on. Elizabeth (aka Baby #5) is toted about town a lot more than her siblings were at 10 months old.
By the time I check, check and double all the loot that is required for the activities the other four are doing, I sometimes arrive at a location and realize I have nothing for the baby. So, she moves on to my keys, phone, ink pen, etc. Now I keep this in my van – Lizzy’s Box O’ Stuff. It is nothing more than an old Pampers wipes box containing a few things that if were left behind, no one would really miss and no cash would be lost. Currently, Lizzy’s box holds the lid from a icing container, 2 plastic spoons, 2 scoops, a children’s fork that doesn’t really pick anything up, a (clean) toothbrush and a dull plastic cookie cutter.Now, these items may seem blah to you, but I assure you Elizabeth (and believe it or not, the other kids as well) is fully entertained by the box’s contents. Our family strives to leave a location better than we found it. And, while I certainly do not leave a place without collecting my things and strongly frown upon littering, if I were to lose an item from this box, no tears would be shed.
