Mom Uses Diaper Bag as Purse

You Know You're a Mother When: The Diaper Bag Is Your Purse

There are two types of mothers: those that sit and enjoy a glass of wine while they wait for the babysitter to arrive and those who scurry around the house in a robe until the sitter comes a knockin'. Unfortunately, I fall into the latter category. In a rush to get to a dinner date the other night, I ran out of the house with my diaper bag on my shoulder rather than a sassy leather pocket purse.

Instead of my lip gloss and a powder compact, I was armed with Aquaphor and size three Pampers for my night on the town. Though my diaper caddy isn't too shabby, I was embarrassed to fish through wipes and raisins in front of my non-mommy friends. I bet Angelina Jolie never has this problem with six kids under seven.

The diaper bag I have cost me around $40 and looks pretty stylish and is spacious enough for the essentials. Like one of the moms mentioned, I have an emergency bigger diaper bag with diapers, wipes, extra toys and books, a clean sippy cup, and 2 sets of change of clothes for the accidents. In the bag I carry, I have my sons snacks, wipes, books, and water in the big compartment. In the small one, are my keys, cell phone, and wallet. I'll save my fancy wallets and purses when my son and the new baby are old enough not to need those things.
