What would be in your mums summer survival kit? 6

Earlier in the summer Radox sent me what they called a mums summer survival kit, which included a couple of radox hand gels, a pack of Moshie Monster(who I have managed to keep the boys blishfully unaware off) top trump cards, a small first aid kit in a bag, which I have to admit felt me feeling a little disappointed.

Why you ask?  Well I do not want to sound ungrateful, but I already have all of the above, which I carry in my backpack when I am with the children, but as a mum why holiday survival kit would be much more like the following:

  • A bottle of something for the bath
  • A candle
  • A book
  • Some chocolate
  • A bottle of wine

This would enable me to have a lovely relaxing bath, where I would lock the door and recharge from a busy day with the boys.

However, If money was no object I think I would like a day away from the children in a spa, whilst they were entertained.

So as the summer is nearly over, what would be in your mums summer survival kit?

    Easy: a ton of wet-wipes, hours of dvd footage for toddlers, 2,000 unspillable bottles of bubbles (they have them in America where the toy stores apparently have whole aisles devoted to bubbles) and a private chef in my kitchen.

    That’s brilliant ! It’s a fairly normal thing to have top trumps/moshi monsters in your handbag. Along with feltips/crayons, pad and paper, bananas (usually mouldy if my bag is anything to go by) and a bottle of water. I think I would have been a bit miffed too.

    In fact, what I would like as my holiday survival is :

    pre-paid credit card with approx £1000 to spend during the summer holidays on the children so we can go to soft play (!!!),
    wine & soda (if I’m feeling saintly),
    chocolate ,
    opium incense and
    a lock for the bathroom door!

    Never going to happen … very tragic *sniff*

      Mummyontheedge » I agree on the credit card! Oh and I read that as Opium without the incense!
