The Mommy Bag - by Rhiana

So the other day i noticed my handbag was getting a little heavy. My son is four so we are past the days of diapers, bottles and extra clothes so i no longer carry a diaper bag. I have the next step in the evolution of carrying everything a family needs in "The Mommy Bag." Big enough to carry everything but not quite as big as a diaper bag. So I decided to dump the contents out onto my kitchen counter and see what exactly was weighing my Mommy Bag down. The contents are as follows:

  • bottle of water
  • 2 hand sanitizers
  • disposable camera
  • socks
  • 2 lip glosses
  • lip stick
  • cosmetic case (I guess the lip gloss and lipstick made an escape?)
  • 3 receipts (the rest reside in my George Costanza wallet, these were just floating around)
  • paint stick stirrer (you know just in case someone says "gosh, I could really use a paint stick stirrer")
  • waiver of liability
  • day planner
  • American Flag (you mean you don't all carry around your own personal flags?)
  • flash light
  • pretzels
  • pen
  • wallet
  • Teddy Grahams
  • crayons
  • sun block
  • diaper wipes
  • plastic dish (a play toy...because you just never know when you may need one)
  • 2 Cliff Bars
  • Kashi Bar (i don't like to be stranded without food)
  • gum
  • broken pen
  • sunglass case
  • JoAnn flyer (I NEVER leave home without this flyer!)
  • net veggie bag (in case i randomly stop at a roadside veggie stand..)
  • $0.14
I hope I am not alone in this.  Everyone has all this randomly floating in the abyss of their Mommy Bag, right?



  1. but were the pretzels and teddy grahams floating around on the bottom of the bag surrounded by crumbs? Because then I can say, nope, you are not alone :)

  2. Ha love your list! I totally rocked the paint stick for a good month when we moved!
