A Road Trip With Too Much Stuff

Oh myyyyy! My wife and I had decided to do our annual trip to New York city to attend the US Open Tennis Championships among other things but this time we’d have 2 young kids with us. The result was predictable I guess?:

One thing that I can tell you. I did not feel like a minimalist. And believe me, there was stuff around the kids too. And this was on our way to New York City so we had a bit more when we came back after buying some clothes and a few souvenirs.

One positive aspect though was that with a 5 month old and a 2 year-old, I’m hoping that going forward I’ll have less stuff. Two major reasons why are:

-No need to bring a pack’n play (I’ll only have one kid using it next year so I can just use one from the hotel
-The double stroller takes SO much space. Practical yes. But I’m pretty sure next year I’ll be back down to a single stroller.

I might also have one less set of diapers, no formula, etc.

You can probably imagine that our hotel room looked so full!!!

Am I Being Too Optimistic?

Do you think that I’m underestimating how much I’ll need when I have a 3 and a 5 year-old? I really hope that in the coming years I look back on this photo and smile thinking about those good old days:)
