Last week, after a bit of to-ing and fro-ing, I finally made a decision. I picked a holiday in the sun over Britmums.
I’ve been looking forward to Britmums for months but it seems we have some hectic months ahead filled with weddings and different work and family related things going on so if we wanted to go away then it had to be very soon.
So we are all booked for a week in the sun. Hooray!
Then came the next dilemma. To Trunki or not to Trunki?
On our last holiday, Little Z looked very longingly at them at the airport whilst children a bit older than him scooted around their parents. He was too young to have one at the time but there’s also the question about whether its just that extra bit of hassle you have to keep your eye on whilst you half strip for security, try to stop your toddler running off and sample bits of your toddlers milk for the guards so that they know you’re not dodgy. The last thing you want is your 2 year old rolling away at speed into people’s shins.
But they are so cute looking aren’t they? We reasoned all his nappies and tops could go in there and it would definitely keep him entertained for a bit. And they were on SALE!
The OH took this mission upon himself to look for one. Little Z, of course, had long since forgotten what a Trunki is and is more interested in taking all his clothes off (his new thing) and exclaiming “TA DA!!” I was secretly hoping we’d skipped this phase but it seems not. It has become one of our daily chores to try to keep all his clothes on, for as long as possible. He’s just so quick though! The other day I nipped into the kitchen for some cereal and in the time it takes to add coco pops and milk to a bowl the toddler Houdini had whipped everything off bar his shoes and vest. By about 6pm I give up and let him wander around however he likes.
So whilst Little Z is enjoying this new found freedom, the OH was busy conducting an analysis of all the Trunkis on the market. My favourites were the bright Trunkisaurus range but the bright red Harley was also very nice.
The OH searched and scoured the entire universe of Trunki and eventually presented with me this…
I pointed out I was pretty sure it wasn’t on sale and Little Z probably wouldn’t be that bothered about how it resembled a F1 sports car. The strong argument back from a very excited adult was that it had a smiley face.
So we now almost have a Trunki. And I have visions of a very excited hubby scooting about on it at 3am at the airport.
