I like your beginning very much--the list of camping supplies in short, choppy fragments is an effective hook.

This could benefit from a closer read with an editing eye--there were a few mechanical errors that slightly detracted from the overall impact.

Tender and touching message, shared by all parents at one time or another. Nicely done.
The beginning of this is great. The "shopping list" approach works well.

Next time, try putting an extra return between lines. It makes things easier to read.

I loved the overall message, and you captured the mother's feelings well.
A good description of how the mother felt. Nice job.
That is sad. I could feel the mother's ache over the thought of one day packing just for two instead of her 'whole family'. Good job and nice title! ^_^
Great detail - and you certainly "pegged" the topic. :) I was a bit distracted by the characters not having names, but that could just be me. Nice writing!
