Yes, of course you will get a list from your summer sleep-away camp telling you that you should pack sheets, sunscreen and bug spray. Plus lots more I’m sure. But on THIS list are the extras that can make your child’s experience just a little sweeter while away from home.
I believe I’ve mentioned once or twice or fourteen-dozen times that my older son became…intensely challenging in the weeks and months right after we brought his baby brother home. He was three years old, and he was AWFUL. I feel like I can call him that because 1) he’s not, anymore, and 2) because he was objectively, literally, monumentally AWFUL.
