As a mom of 5 kids, I always feel like I’m packing for an army anytime we go someplace. Going to the pool is no different. Especially if you have a child still learning to feel comfortable in the water.
We joined a pool for the first time this year. I’m still freaking out a bit about taking 4 kids to the pool, especially a 5 year old who DOES NOT like to take baths. Fortunately, he seems to be getting over his fear of pools, especially since he sees his older siblings hanging out in the big pool.
Getting out the door after I’m finished writing for several hours in the morning could be a major hassle. However, after putting my organizational super powers into the task, I realized that pre-packing the bag shortly after we get home from the pool makes the next trip to the pool much easier. I cover all 12 tips for packing my favorite Lands End tote bag and Columbia insulated bag in the video and share my top 5 tips below.
