In an emergency have you ever scrambled to collect the things you need? Well, you need something like what we call a Smart Pack. It can be a serious and life-saving pack, or just a fun pack for fun occasions. Those of us who have delivered babies have already employed this concept. Knowing that the baby is coming soon, we gather up and pack the things we may need for our home birth, or if necessary, the things to take to the hospital.

My three-year-old loves his fun pack. He knows it has snacks, water, a change of clothes, a blanket, books, and more. He has so often seen me pack mine that he has taken it upon himself to keep his own packed and ready for any eventuality. He adds a few more toys, snacks, and especially chocolate, if he can find any.

Smart Packs are not only for pregnant women and children; they are also for smart people. You never know when the unexpected will actually “unexpectedly” happen. Keeping on hand an Extreme Pack is also a smart idea. It is better to be prepared than perplexed.
