    It's now been three and a half years since she grew her angel wings 👼🏼, and I still can't unpack our bag. It's still where it was the last time we needed it - on the laundry shelf 😢.
    I just want to send you so many hugs. Xoxo

    Oh gosh. It never really occurred to me to have a grab bag like this but it is a good idea. Particularly since my laundry is always in such a shambles, dh would never be able to round everything up for me.

    No I don't have one. With 4 kids and no one with a particular reason to make regular hospital trips I don't see the need. I've had multiple kids in hospital over the years and it never takes more than a minute to throw stuff together at the last minute.

    If I had a child with an illness that I knew might result in regular trips I'd probably have one.

    Yep I do. I am three hours away from hospital and we often have to go in asap and have done for the last two years so I have bags for all of us packed and always have a bag with a clean school uniform and PJ's for my older two because they sometimes have been left with friends when we're doing a dash to Perth.
    For all of us I have clothes and Pjs, for me I have Pj's, change of clothes, toiletries, a hoodie, socks, medication list, phone charger.

    Thinking about it, it would be good to have one in case of evacuation as well ( floods, storms, fire)
