Pack Light

I have two days left until my big cross-country flight with a toddler. I’ve created the lofty goal for myself to pack everything we need in one carry-on suitcase.

I’ve created my strategy to make sure everything fits and I’d like to share a few helpful tips if you’re a mom who wants to pack light with a toddler.
