Let's be real about what's in my bag: lots and lots of papers shoved in the sides and lots and lots of cracker crumbs exfoliating the bottom of the bag. Here's proof:
My purse looked like this even in high school. I just seem to have a penchant for making a bag into a file cabinet. Fortunately, Lily Jade makes diaper bags that have more than enough space for my paper hoarding and whatever I need to cart around for the day.
I'm at this nice lull when I don't really need much in my bag. You can see my other two Lily Jade posts here and here when I really packed them like Mary Poppins. Or you can go back to a year and a half ago when I disclosed that my bag even had dried pancake pieces in it. But right now, Ryan is out of diapers and has been accident free for a good long time so I don't need an extra pair of pants for him. Conor doesn't spit up like he used to so I don't need extra clothes for him nor do I need burp cloths or the like. I normally don't go out with Conor in cloth diapers so I don't back those, and I don't pack a wet bag.
So here is what happened when my Sarah Grace spilled the beans (minus my stack of papers and mounds of cracker crumbs):
- my cracked iPhone 4
- paper and pen
- baby wipes
- make up
- wallet (bridesmaid gift from Laura!)
- The Betrothed (sometimes instead of the book I'm reading, there will be a skein of yarn and a crochet hook)
- crackers (normally not full, but we had freshly finished a sleeve so I tossed this into the photo)
- lovingly gnawed book
- Lily Jade changing pad
- mini animals
- scarf that I use as a nursing cover
Sometimes I toss my camera in, but more so in the warm months when we are out and about. Tossing my camera and book at the same time does make a tight fit with the rest of my purse posse in the Sarah Grace, but the Madeline is extra roomy and holds them with room to spare.
