Not that long ago i used to have what seemed like a Tardis for a bag. Being the mother of an autistic child you have to be prepared for the more unusual eventualities.As you know C doesn't speak, but he also doesn't ask for anything like needing to go to the loo. I have to promt him, and of course i don't always get my timing right. So i used to have to carry spare clothes. (My timing is better now) Incredibly sometimes he wont go to the loo for days at a time, no matter how much i give him to drink.
Yes i used to carry a swimming float. Any ideas as to why? Its light, portable and great for slipping in between Cs head and the surface he was headbanging on. (When small i would use my hand or foot, or bodily lift him away.) Now he wears a helmet.
Pecs.....ooops wrong pic
Pecs, i carried Pec symbols about for years, just in case he would start using them.
And to some places i would take a portable DVD player.
And of course a supply of chopsticks!Before the days of C having his fingers permanently in his ears he would never been seen without a chopstick which he would tap on his face, but occasionally they would fly off never to be seen again.
Those days are behind me now and thankfully my bag has now shrunk. It also had to shrink because of my injury to my leg i can no longer carry heavy things.
What unusual things do you carry in your bag?
