Since having my daughter, the things I have to carry with me at all times is a rather exhaustive list, and it’s more of a ‘Just In Case Situation ABCDEFG’ happens. Hungry? Bored? Thirsty? Upset? Basically any physical or emotional state you find yourself in, I could probably help.
Here’s what’s in my Bag!
Essentials for Mamma: I used to just say wallet, keys, and phone. But now I’ve added toothpaste, toothbrush, lipstick, and brush to my list. Why? Because a quick swipe of colour on the lips, fresh breath, and smooth hair will make you feel like a model on some days… er… most days. Oh, such little it takes…
Snacks: Fruit & Veggie packs, apple, seeds & nuts, crackers. No one is getting hangry on my watch. (Autocorrect kept wanting me to write ‘hungry’, but i really do mean hangry. Hungry + Angry. They go together like PB&J)
Entertainment: Books, a few random toys, small ‘etch n’sketch draw pad’. I’m not sure the actual name, but this thing has been a life saver for us. Not featured in the picture, because a little someone is using it at the moment. 🙂
Unseen Accoutrement: Crumbs everywhere. Stains inside and out, and smellllllls lingering from that bag.
Here’s the thing. My diaper bag is getting close to two years old and it’s starting to really wear out. And smell. And unfortunately, I can’t wash this bag! I began to do some research and stumbled across Lily Jade Diaper Bags. Beautiful leather, great size, and get this, the inside is removable so that you can wash it, or simply remove it when you don’t need to tote around your baby gear when heading to work or an evening out! Plus it looks like it’s made to last.
I will save my pretty little pennies for this bag… or cross my fingers at every giveaway they have!
