The Emergency Hospital Bag

Back when DH and I were dating he introduced me to the concept of the emergency bag. He always kept one back in case of a sudden trip, mostly due to his mother's frequent illnesses.
Today we keep them prepped for lil'c's frequent and sudden stays.
Funny thing is that when Li'k was born... His bag wasn't ready :P
