Am I a Camp Worthy Momma? My son leaves for Boy Scout camp on Sunday and I am not ready. This is his first week overnight camp. He has attended a couple of overnight camp outs, but they have included us. My daughter went to a day camp in Memphis while staying with my sister-in-law. I didn't have to worry about packing. I knew her needs would be met by her Aunt and cousin even if I forgot something.
I had images of having everything organized and packed well beforehand, but I have failed. I will be making a mad dash into the city to purchase the uniform this afternoon. Then I will have to sew the patches, etc. The lists of what things he needs to take are obscure, at best. I think the only thing on the list was a sleeping bag and the uniform for flag ceremonies. I will probably pack some insect spray, sun screen, and blueberry muffins. I want him to have everything he needs to be comfortable without being weighted down with stuff. There is so much to think about.
Then, the question remains -- Will I be able to watch him leave for a week without crying?
