Don't let this happen to you



No one needs to carry around seven packages of wipes. Five lipsticks and two lip balms. Two kinds of sunscreen. An open bag of granola bites that is months old. And a harmonica. A harmonica, peeps!

The seven Hot Wheels cars are totally necessary, though.

One of the consequences of my becoming a mom has been the state of my bag. (A guard at Disney who inspected it told me, "You know, this isn't a purse anymore. It's a portable warehouse." And my husband replied, "She keeps the diapers in Bay 19.") After finally cleaning it out -- including the Cheerios and sand in the bottom -- my bag is loads lighter. But I have a feeling I'll be lugging it around for a few more years . . . .

wow, you seriously carry all that around? Which is heavier, the purse or the boy?

Since we had a short stint of 3 in diapers, 3 needing bottles/sippies, and 3 needing something to play with to prevent them from killing a sibling I now carry a backpack. We still have 2 in diapers so I don't see the backpack getting ditched anytime soon.

I carry this much stuff in my cargo shorts in the summer -- only it's usually not as useful.

The harmonica just made me laugh. Maybe, if you are ever stuck in a freak hurricane, you can entertain your boy with music and toy cars.

It should at the very least buy you some time!

Ahhh...the great bag clean-out! Due to my compulsive neat-freak personality, that is one of my favorite activities!

I find that the bigger the bag I carry, the more I find to put in it. I love the diapers in Bay 19 comment from the hubby!
