so the power was out for what seemed like a million years..

and i realized I was woefully unprepared.

for having the power go out with a toddler. Blah.

toddlers plus candles equals mommy nuts time. Any solutions for a "better" storm kit?

  • This is what we do... we have candles also and 4 fur babies and a 9 yr old...
    Candles are up high.... and we have a battery operating lamp (a camp lamp)
    Also put in a small back pack (and keep in a closet easy to get too) coloring books
    crayons, mini toys (that won't be missed and can stay there) carry a portable radio
    extra batteries and several flash lights (extra batteries) and a set of clothes for baby
    in bag along with a few diapers...
    snacks are good a box of cheerios (small ) ..
    If I know a storm is coming I put important papers in the bag and lock up and bag our
    laptops... camera... and a change of clothing for each including several cans of food for the
    cats... and yes it all can go in one bag... also a small first aide kit... most often this stuff isn't
    necessary, but it is good to know what you can get to quickly...
    Sorry... Dh is a firefighter...lol... I think it's burned into my head...lol...

  • Camping lanterns that run on batteries not fire. "Electric" candles. Those stick up push lights (my kids love them) We have twin two year olds. Fire is NOT GOOD! LOL!
