The Mom Purse: What’s In Your Bag?
My husband and I took the kids to a Red Sox game a few weekends ago. Because they limit the size of the bag you can bring into Fenway Park, I had to pull out a different bag and just throw in the few things I needed from my everyday purse. Keys, wallet, phone, anything else? Nope. So how is it that my everyday purse weighs 82 lbs, seems like a bottomless pit, and swallows my car keys three times a day? It’s because…I’m a mom. It’s time to take the semi-regular inventory of my mom purse to ensure that I am perpetually prepared for the apocalypse. Here is what I have today.
The Contents of This Mom’s Purse
1 birthday party invitation. Must remember to RSVP. Unless that party already happened…
1 24-inch gummy snake, 1 ring pop, 3 dum dums, 1 package of wax bottles, and other assorted candy
1 orphaned 3T Celtics sock
Assorted cars from the movie Cars, including Guido, Luigi and Miguel Camino
1 cast cover (for a girl with a broken arm!)
1 glow in the dark bracelet, long since expired
1 fluorescent pink pony tail holder
1 package of crayons in puzzlingly nice condition
1 heart whistle
1 teeny tiny plastic bunny
1 tube of Benadryl cream for bug bites
2 unused tickets from the 4th of July carnival
And I’m sure my wallet and keys are in there somewhere.
How about you? What’s in your purse today?
