You Know You’re a Mom When…


…you empty the contents of your purse/diaper bag and find this…

Yep. That’s all out of ONE bag. I like to call it the bottomless pit.

What does this mean? It means I am a mom and from the looks of it, I’m a pretty good mom I guess. I may be a little disorganized but at least I have toys to keep my girls entertained, food and drink if they are hungry, tissues for runny noses, germ X wipes to keep germs away, and even a change of clothes in case my 4 month old has an accident when we are out and about. Oh, and some of that stuff is mine! Half of the time I can’t even find it though because I’m digging around all of the kid stuff to find mine.

Did you know that I have a cute little “non-mom purse?” It’s the small purse I own when I go to the store without the girls. It has just enough room for my wallet, phone, keys–and my chapstick 😉 The bag pictured above is the purse/diaper bag combo. I wanted something stylish to keep everything in without it looking “too” mommy-ish.

If your purse looks like this, you are normal. Don’t be embarrassed. It happens to the best of us. At least I know that when I go out and about I will be prepared!

Happy soon to be Mother’s Day to all of the awesome moms out there!

Does your purse/diaper bag look like this?

    Yep! I HAD a nice looking big bag, blue with butterflies, from cracker barrel that has lasted me almost 2 years, but it’s falling part. So I bought an actual diaper bag to last me for at least the first year of my new baby girl’s life, she is due mid-July. But yes, it looks like that. I have some business cards in there, my lip stuff lip balm, stickers, 1 or 2 juice boxes (inside of ziplock bags, because I have had them break open and leak, one bottle of water, a book, my kindle fire, band-aids, small thing of neosporin, diapers, wipes, snacks for the kids, a few small toys, and more!

    So I will have all of this stuff AND all of our new baby girl’s stuff in their too. Oh what fun that will be. Plus 4 to 5 changes of clothes since you never know how many times she might spit up, or have a diaper blow out in the 45 minutes that I go to pick up our son from school, and come back home again! :)

    My purse looks exactly like that. I call it my Mary Poppins bag because I just keep pulling things out of it. Of course once it’s empty I wonder how I managed to carry so much weight around.
