And then I wrote a blog post...

I know.  You're shocked, right.  Well usually, my job and three kids leave me strapped for imagination and time to sit down and actually write a blog post.  This week the boys are at Bible school.  (doing a little dance for joy)  OK.  and AnonyMOMous begged.  Cause that's what it takes.  begging.  and cash prizes.  I am very susceptible to bribery.  Anyway.  She wrote a very excellent blog post on the contents of her purse and challenged the blogger community to give up theirs..  Well here goes nothing.  Cause I got nothing in it.  I kid. 

Well I, in my infinite wisdom have decided that I do not like lugging around multiple bags and since I have to carry the diaper bag around and the baby (she insists on eating and pooping on a regular basis)  I just stick my stuff in the diaper bag.  Of course I'm not totally uncool, my diaperbag is BabyPhat afterall.
And a must have for all diaperbags no matter how glamorous... matching changing pad, diapers and wipes

A change of clothes and baby accessories
Reading material, because you never know when you might get a moment to read.

Batteries, I don't know why, don't ask, chapstick, lipstick, pictures, band-aids, spare change, crayons and that may or may not be some bills I was supposed to mail last week.  Sorry PSE&G. 

Then the usual stuff, wallet, name badge from work, my phone, my camera, keys, gum,

And after that, you know what's left?  8346294 receipts from everything from the supermarket to the gas station.  I'm not keeping them for a reason, they just get shoved in there until someone forces me to empty and show the contents to the world. 
So your welcome for that tour of everything I have to carry around on a daily basis.  And also for blogging.  If you think your bag is worse then mine prove it by linking up!

Mommy's Magic Bag

I have a million receipts in mine too...until they bug me and I throw them all out!

Who is AnonyMOMous? said...

Why you gotta tell everybody that I was begging on the internet, huh? ;) And your bag was impressively less jam packed, especially considering it's dual purpose. Kudos to you for still attempting to read and keeping batteries at the ready. I use "It needs batteries!" as a prevailing excuse when I'm over a frickin toy. Clearly, you are a better Mommy than I.

Thanks for being the first to jump on #MommysMagicBag with me! :)

You can never have to many batteries! I think over abundance of receipts ( i have gazillions)is a sign of mommyhood.

Look at you posting! Good for you! I'm only surprised that you only had one book in your bag. Slow week, huh? =)

P.S. How go the nightmares?

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with eleventybillion receipts in their purse/diaperbag :) I used to keep my camera and/or my Flip in my purse too, but the camera broke and I was running out of room with all the rest of the CRAP I carry around daily... ;) it was fun to see what others keep in their Magic Bag!


Very interesting post. Keep going. All the very best :)

Currently it appears like Movable Type is the best blogging platform available right
now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're
using on your blog?

Look at my web site :: Nike Air Max
