Project 365 2010: Week 1

by Wendy Copley on January 27, 2010

A new year, a new 365 photo project! Last year’s was a smashing success so I’m going to try it again this year. I’m planning to do a post in the next few weeks with some thoughts on last year’s project and to show what I’m doing with the photos. Stay tuned for that!

001

January 1, 2010: Augie chills in his booster seat after breakfast at Grandma and Grandpa’s.

002

January 2, 2010: On our way home. This is our carry-on luggage. Ugh. Long gone are the days when I could zip onto a plane with my purse and a bag that would fit under the seat in front of me. Pictured here you can see:

  • The diaper bag
  • Zach’s back pack
  • Augie’s car seat
  • The Ergo carrier (easiest way to get Augie on and off the plane)
  • My carry on bag (this is big because it holds my laptop, a book, a change of clothes for me, and books, toys, etc. to keep Augie occupied.)
  • A lunch box (so the kids especially don’t starve)
  • Wyatt’s back pack, jammed with books, art supplies, a blanket, a neck pillow and a change of clothes
  • the stroller (which we thankfully get to gate check)

We have to get all this, plus two kids on and off the plane twice in one day!

And I’m not even going to tell you about the horrible, horrible diaper situation we lived through on the last flight. This tied with another airplane diaper story for the worst diaper in the history of our family. Let’s just say that the cleaning crew had to be alerted and directed to our seats when we landed and leave it at that. Horrible!

January 3, 2010: First trip to Trader Joe’s after being gone for a week. That cart was full to the top!

004

January 4, 2010: Loading the dishwasher.

005

January 5, 2010: This is a particularly bad batch of dishes, waiting to go into the dishwasher. I try not to let them pile up this much, but it happens some times.

006

January 6, 2010: Poor old Daddy is trying to check his work email here, but Augie insisted on some cuddle time with with him.

007

January 7, 2010: Wyatt takes one of many breaks while putting his jammies on after his bath to do some dancing.

  • I'm doing my very first Project 365. It's much harder than I thought it would be…

  • Poor Wendy. One of my worst experiences ever was flying home to CA from FL when my big boys were 3 and 1. Owen went through every diaper I had packed (like 6!) with in the first 3 hours of the flight. I can't type out the rest of it. It was horrible. Horrrrible. The worst. I walked up and down the whole plane hoping to find another baby on board that I could beg a diaper off of and there were none. Horrible.
    Anywho, one thing that did work on that trip spendidly was getting a small foldable dolly (or a luggage rolly thing would work) to strap Owen's Marathon to. Then we buckled Owen into the carseat and used it as a stroller through the airports. It was awesome. The dolly fit right into an overhead compartment on the plane.

    Wendy,
    I feel or you with the diaper incident and I can't even cope with the idea of getting on a plane with all of that stuff!! I lo-o-ove the picture of Wyatt dancing. He is just deliciously 5 years old!

  • OMG! That sounds HORRIBLE! I always pack at least 10 diapers for the plane because I'm so scared of running out.

  • It is hard to keep it up daily, but your photos are lovely!

    What do you use to put your child's lunch in? Those containers look roomy. Great blog đŸ™‚

  • Hi Kristi — I use two different lunch “boxes” for my son's lunches. His traditional boxes go in a small collapsible cooler that's meant to hold a six pack. I couldn't find it on the Thermos site but it looks very similar to this one: http://www.thermos.com/product_details.aspx?Pro

    His Laptop Lunchbox has a special case designed to fit it, along with a water bottle. Here is the link to it: http://secure.laptoplunches.com/AMAZING/itemMat

    He used to have a Spiderman lunch box that we got at Target, but my husband accidentally forgot it on a plane a few months ago.
